I do not own this, but I have used one many times while working as a Mobile DJ.

I gave it 4 stars because its not a top of the line product, and could use some tweaking. But all in all, not a bad setup for the price.

A lot of reviews seems to be more along the lines of being setup by people who don't know what they are doing. I'm not saying their dumb or an idiot. They just don't have experience in proper setup.

The review about needing the mic close to the mouth, This is from not knowing the difference between mic gain, and master vol. Lac of experience, and/or knowledge in setup.

Turn master vol. down to where you can just hear yourself talk. Keep the mic away from the mouth few inches, talk normally, sing, etc. and adjust the mic gains till you can clearly hear yourself talk(while keeping mic away from mouth). Now adjust the master vol.(located on the sound system your using, and/or mixer). Should be good to go. The More gain, the further away from mic you can be, but be careful, if your around the speakers, for you could get feedback. If you do, simply, slowly, little at a time adjust mic gain down, and volume up etc. till you get the results you want.

As for the cutting in and out review. One thing that wasn't mention that I think may be key here is, the location you placed the receiver. If you have it on or close around other electronics. This is going to cause you issues.

You may not know, other electronics such as but not limited to, mixers, power amplifiers, Computers, etc. pretty much anything that plugs in. emits electronic frequencies. Even a simple extension cord, and cell phones. These frequencies can cause interference.

Another issue could be, if you have a cabinet setup, and the receiver is located in the cabinet. Again located around other electronics.

My suggestion, set it up where you can place the receiver about 10-20ft at least away from all your other equipment, and make sure there isn't anything(powerful electronics such as what was mentioned above) in-between the receiver and the area that the mics are going to be used. This should fix the signal problem of cutting in and out. Another thing to check, is battery connections, and the cord from the receiver to your mixer(sound system). Bad cord can cause big problems!

As for the other cons you mentioned. Cord being too short, this is a cheap fix... Wouldn't worry about that. Think you can get a good quality cord 20ft long right here on this site.

This GEM-Sound wireless, I ordered these NEW but they had most definitely been opened before , They came in 2 days, I was NOT impressed with them at all, & FYI they are NOT OMNI directional you have to speak straight into the end, NOT GOOD FOR STAGE WORK, they only worked after turning on the switch twice , the first time you turn it on they don`t connect, I was sitting 3 ft. from the receiver, one of the mic`s was distorting even on low volume. NOT for stage use They are no more than a child`s Toy !!!
I have a NADY Wireless mic light weight & looks cheep but works great on stage, even with the antenna broken completely off the receiver it worked 14 feet away from the box, I have ordered a NADY duo set I hope they are as good as the original one I have. BUT I sent the (( cheep GEN- sound)) back for a refund. Save yourself a lot of trouble & get the NADY`s or pay a couple hundred & get something better. how do I rate these GEM- sound O cause they are NO GEM. ther one star is because you are forced to give at least one star

      Comments about Gem Sound GMW61 Dual Wireless Microphone:

      One of the microphones in this system quit working after only using the system for about 2 1/2 months. The system was only used every one day every two weeks. Since I could not return to Musicians Friend because the 45 day return had past, I contacted Gem Sound and received a return authorization and returned the product to them. I have placed several phone calls to Gem Sound and always receive the same response. "I'll have to check on it and call you back!!!!!" I have yet to receive a return call and after two months I still don't know the status of the repair or replacement. Save your money and DO NOT buy Gem Sound products. Their customer service is terrible.

      Comments about Gem Sound GMW61 Dual Wireless Microphone:

      These microphones were bought as a gift from client that was very pleased with my work for their friend's wedding, and wanted me to have wireless microphones for their wedding. Well the first time I got to use these microphones was for their wedding. They worked brilliantly well for what I needed them for. I was the DJ for both the wedding ceremony and reception, and the microphones were used for the Pastor and Bride/Groom during the ceremony and for the MC during the reception. The ceremony was performed on the other side of curtains and walls, while I was positioned in the middle of the reception hall. No idea as to how far that was, but as for what stood in between us, a wall and some curtains, the microphones were picked up very well with clear audio. During the reception, the MC kept on walking around the entire hall throughout the party. No audio drops. The only issue, was for the fact that everyone kept pulling the microphone away from their mouths and I lose a dramatic amount of audio. That was the only issue. Other than that, these microphones works amazingly well for their price. Extremely light. Although, I have to say that the receiver feels like plastic and could break any moment, but no issues to report.

        Comments about Gem Sound GMW61 Dual Wireless Microphone:

        We bought these when first starting out providing sound systems for live events, and they are awful. They cut in and out. The quality is horrible. Even the most professional sound engineers could not get them mixed on our board to give a decent vocal sound. And the fact that both mics come in on the same channel, both singers must be mixed on the same EQ which simply doesnt cut it. Everyone's voice is different, so mixing two different people on one audio channel is a horrible idea. If you are looking for a wireless mic to sing into, save your money. Buy a Shure wireless set. You'll definitely get better sound quality and more reliability.

                  Bought this to use at the American Legion post. Primarily to call the Bingo games at our bi monthly fund raiser. I was surprised how well it worked and how clear the sound was. As one person stated the microphones are not truly Omni directional. You have to be careful to speak right into the mike but for the money this is a great little setup.
