OVERVIEW

Two channels of handheld wireless in a single package.

The BLX288/PG58 system features Shure's dual-channel BLX88 receiver and a pair of BLX2 transmitters, each equipped with a Shure PG58 mic capsule.

The transmitter features the popular PG58 mic capsule, a rugged and reliable ABS polymer chassis and frame, a 10 dB pad, an On/Off ergonomic push-button switch, and a single bi-color LED battery indicator. It has a rugged windscreen and has a comfortable size and shape.

The receiver is a tabletop design with XLR and 1/4" outputs, and features one touch QuickScan technology, which examines the room and the available frequencies, and selects the best one.

I am a mobile DJ and needed to get a new set of dual wireless mics as my old set of 4 years was broken when the receiver vibrated off my subwoofer. My old set was cheap, but always worked and sounded great! I had read so many good reviews about Shure, that I decided I would bite the bullet and dish out the money for a quality set of wireless mics. Boy was that a mistake... First, the Mute function is a must for me and these mics do not have that option. There have been many occasions where myself or my client have been a long ways from the receiver and the Mute function keeps unwanted noise from being heard yet keeps the signal locked between the mic and the receiver. Secondly, in all the years that I used my previous system, I never had a single mic squeal; I had two with these mics on the very first gig. Another negative about the mics is that any noise from your hands on the mic body is transmitted loudly through the speakers. Third, the receiver does not display enough information, like RF signal strength or battery life indicators for the mics. Also, the receiver does not have antennas and therefore has limited range (100' line of sight), for a mobile DJ that does a fair amount of outdoor events, I need more range. My old system had a range of 300' line of sight and I tested it many times. And finally the value, not even close; I know that there are going to be a lot of "Shure purists" that will pick this review apart, I don't care. I'm just giving my honest opinion about this system and it does not work for me. I thought about trying a Shure dual wireless system that uses the SM58 mic capsule, but I could not find one. I'm sure that it would have cost significantly more money than this set and from all of the reviews and comparisons that I have read (and watched) there is not that much of a difference in sound between the two.

        I actually used this for the first time for a seminar. I brought it as a "just in case" back-up. And low and behold we needed it. It was flawless. Not one bit of static, fuzz, or interference. I looked like a genius for bringing it.

                    I was disappointed in this product. I've owned nothing but SHURE microphones since I started my company and I have never had any issues. These microphones were maybe 20 feet away from the receiver and kept dropping the signal. It was very stressful throughout the entire show!
