    Comments about Shure MX153 Earset Headworn Microphone:

    This mic may sound great, and it bears the infamous Shure moniker, but it is very cheaply made. Comes with a two year warranty, and ours lasted 28 months. I have used mics for years, and I feel like a Shure mic at this price should basically last a lifetime. I have owned many mics through the years, and I would have to put mic failure rate as very low. This is actually the second MX 153 that has gone bad due to cheap cable.

    Comments about Shure MX153 Earset Headworn Microphone:

    We use this microphone with our church PA system. It works well, with the Shure wireless system. It's very sensitive and picks up the pastor's voice well without interfering with his presentation.
