I did have issues with my first microphone... it didnt work but musician's friend sent me a new one for free. If you are looking for a cheap microphone then this one is perfect. it has great sound, and good range. Its pretty light because of the plastic its made with but i did drop it 3 times and it still works really good and there was no damage to the mic. im more than satisfied with this product, especially at the price. and if this mic ever breaks, they're so cheap buying another one is no big deal.

SOUNDS LIKE A SM58,REALLY

By Anonymous

Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

I bought one for outdoor use for people to use to make anouncements, it worked great, but better yet, i tryed it for Vocals, it really blowed me away, sounds like a shure sm58, and better, dont know why, i use 5 sm58s, but the sound of this is so good, i use it to sing out of most of the time, and the price, "wow" its like giving them away. I must say i have a great pa system that might help on the sound, buy one you will love it.

surprisingly good..

By drumbee

Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

I bought this microphone for use for some speeches at my nephew's wedding. I was a little bit worried but a wireless mic that people could pass around seemed like the best thing and much easier to use that passing around a wired mic a the head table. The price was great and naturally I worried about the sound quality, drop-outs, etc. I have no experience with wireless mics and out band uses nothing but wired mics.Anyway, to make a long story just a little bit longer, it performed perfectly. The distance was no more than 50 feet from the receiver and it was not used for singing. I don't think I would use it for vocals but for speech it was great. The price was cheap, it was easy to set up and performed well for what it was.

      Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

      This mic specs state the line of site range is 150 ft. B. S.!!! It also stated that typical was 350ft. I'm calling you out musicians friend, your mixer you sent me sucks!!! The Nady mic you sent sucks, I couldn't even get 25ft. Without dropping out so I had to buy the bulky chords to keep the reciever in range of the mic anyway! After reading false reviews on all the equipment I bought for my wedding, I thought I was getting a great deal and would have been a loyal customer. Instead I got Screwed!! If the reviews would have been accurate, I might have spent a little more for better gear. I am almost certain these reviews are posted by musicians friend to persuade you to buy their gear.

      I rated this high, cause it is cheap for the quality and use.
      Good for speech and KARAOKE. But not really for professionals.
      Just make sure when you place the receiver, it is away from magnetic field.
      Easy to use
      Plastic, but okey, dropped it already and it still woking.
      Cheap

      Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

      We bought this mic for speaking engagements. We've had it less than three months, used it 2 times, and it now has a short and the handheld won't stay on. Of course this happens after the Musician's Friend 30 day return policy runs out, so I was politely referred to Nady customer service. Awesome.

      Let this be a lesson to not by cheap junk. The time wasted on dealing with the return wasn't worth the savings.

          Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

          This system is used for announcements in our small playhouse. I didn't buy it for vocal quality or singing - but so the MC wouldn't be tethered to a microphone stand. Works great. We parked the base station in the light booth. We can go just about anywhere in our concrete and cinderblock building and the signal is clear, audible and without any significant distortion. That's roughly 100' or so maximum distance through concrete and steel. I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't tried it with singing - but it works quite well for announcements with good vocal quality.

          I bought this wireless system about a year ago when i was in need of a mic...So with a little money that i had i rushed and picked up this wireless system at radio shack lol. I thought it was going to be a pile of crap. the system and the mic is ALL plastic which sucks...I dropped the mic on stage and the casing for the battery broke...there isnt really no features just volume lol. It's sound Really good for its price and not that bad of feedback...i like it..though i am on this site to find a different mic lol

          Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

          My screamer for my hardcore band kept getting tangled up in mic cables, so I told him about this mic and he decided to give it a try. When it came we hooked it up to our pa and I went out of the house to test the range. I went over 100ft and the mic picked up the signal through a wall!This is a very affordable mic and is great for the value! Since its plastic you have to be careful with the handling but my screamer dropped it twice and it is still in great condition!If you are looking for an inexpencive mic this will do great!

          Mic Value of the Year

          See all my reviews

          Comments about Nady DKW-3 Handheld Wireless System:

          I was skeptical when I heard this was plastic but thought I would try it at the price. At a company picnic, the mic worked from about 140 feet away with clarity. It cut in/out a couple of times when the announcer turned around so that he was between the mic and the antenna. The vocal reproduction was pretty flat but it reproduced the voices with a very pure sound. I had no feedback whatsoever. This is a fantastic value for a wireless. I take care of ALL my equipment so dropping it is not an option but it is a heavy plastic so just be careful.

            Don't let the price range fool you, this single Mike gives a front-person mobility for better audience interaction. The signal strength was so good, I had to adjust the included volume control, and balance it with other P/A lines. It kept a good frequency range without a lot of hiss.

                I purchased one of these inexpensive units many years ago, to do announcements at our daily morning meetings at work. It eventually started loosing range, so I purchased another similar unit, which had a different model number, but appeared identical in every other respect. I didn't feel it owed me anything, being that it lasted as long as it did.

                          This is a great mic! I sing any thing from blues to metal and I can always hear what im singing. It is very sensitive and it will still pic up what you are singing from a foot or 2 away which is great for anyone who plays the guitar and sings. Plus it is great for recording you can get a great quality sound on your computer with it.
