Read the above. I believe you'll find wht you're looking for there.
I've had these mics for a year now, and I can't say anything bad about them. They aren't deserving of the accolades that pricey higher quality mics get, but, for the money, you really can't go wrong. I use them primarily for my karaoke shows, and I get hours of use before battery change, very long wireless range and consistent quality of sound. As for those who post that they feed back, I suggest you learn about EQ. Not knowing how to properly dial up sound seperates the men from the boys in this business. There's a balanced sweet spot you have to find with most wireless mics between the sensitivity/range settings on the reciever, your mic trim and your output volume. Once you find it, you're off and running! My mics are clear, loud and well sonically balanced, with nary a feedback issue. In larger venues, I do have to turn up the volume for good projection, and the light plastic bodies of these mics do give issue to thumping when handled roughly, like when someone claps during a performance while holding the mic. Not so a-typical. Happens with some dynamic mics too. But let's face it, if a customer destroys one of these babies, I can replace them for a laughably low cost, and I'm confident that the replacements will suffice as well as their predecessors. I use a higher end wireless for myself, and yes, there's a difference in the warmth and response, but I'm a professional singer, and it's my job to impress. I let really good singers use my mic on occasion, but there have been times when I had no battery for my Shure, and had to use the Nadys myself. I get no diminished crowd response as a result. Do yourself a favor, try them out. Stop using your volume slider to correct feedback issues, and learn about EQ, and you'll be very pleased with the results.
Durable, light weight and not battery burners. Good sound for many applications.
For what I use them for, there's no better deal out there.

I bought this as a backup wireless system for my church and some dj gigs that I do. I know it is very inexpensive and you usually get what you pay for but this was unusable even from the start. First of all, turning on the the wireless receiver without the mics on it creates a loud terrible buzz! Turning on a mic stops the buzz but then turning it back off brings it back! Also moving the mics create a scratchy noise. I've had experiences with cheaper wireless systems that at least worked for a few months before these things started happening but this one was bad from the start. I highly recommend spending a little more money and getting something more reliable if you are planning to use these in any sort of professional situation.

          Comments about Nady DKW-Duo Dual Channel VHF Handheld Microphone System:

          Bottom Line: I would never use these for a big/ spotlight gig - sound quality is simply par and at times, you can hear some interference come through (which is possible with any wireless unit) However I bought two of these for my rehearsal space & couldn't be happier - Clears up four cords of mic mess and you can move the mic/stand anywhere you want in a heartbeat! For the price, can't beat that! You are getting what you pay for here so with realistic expectations, it is an awesome purchase!!

            Bought these for a church fellowship hall PA. Very light (plastic) and easy to use. We were not looking for heavy-duty professional mics and spoken vocal quality is quite good. I was blown away with the quality of the electronics, matching our expensive professional units for clarity, reception and feedback resistance. Standing right under a speaker with volume up I could not get them to feed back! Unbeatable value!

            Comments about Nady DKW-Duo Dual Channel VHF Handheld Microphone System:

            We use these microphones for trivia at a local pub - they work far better than expected for the price. I grew up in the age of "Mr. Microphone" so, I didn't expect much. We turn the mics on and off all the time - don't notice any problems with humming that others have reported. I suspect these would break the first time they are dropped, so I wrapped some grip tape around them. I am sure higher-priced mics are just as fragile.

                        Handling causes scratchy noise, you have to mount on stand. Even then sound is not that nice but can work for multiple singers harmonizing for a non professional gig. Fun mike for the price.
