    Hey guys!

    I'm getting really fed up with being tied to a mic stand during performing, and I want to switch to a wireless headset "Janet Jackson" style mic so I can be free to move around.

    I was looking around at them online today, and it seems like they're either really expensive, like in the $600 -> $900 range, or a lot cheaper and maybe iffy quality.

    Does anyone have recommendations for some of the ones that are best values? I don't really want to spend a mint, but I can't abide equipment failure, either.

    Thanks mucho!

    'What have you done for me lately?'

    Seriously, though. No idea. Shure is always a good bet.

    Look at the cheaper AKG or Sennheiser offerings.

    What you want is the Crown CM311 with the best wireless system you can afford from Shure, Sennheiser, AKG, or Audio-Technica.

    Unless you run around like Janet, you might look like a dork with one of those!
