Rated 1 out of 5 by Trainertos Very Bad Static
If you like wasting 6hrs of your day to shoot a 2 min video - this mic might be for you! (3 hrs, 20 takes, 3 hrs to cut and trim at home all static spots). Tried everything, FM interference off, dryer sheet to clothes, switched channels, new batteries always...booo Sony!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Penner Worst Sony Product Ever
This unit is terrible, bought it to do some video work and it crackles and pops. Do not waist your money. Always thought sony was made a good product, guess my opinion has changed. Waisted $200.00.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Meeper 50% Static
Have just used a few times- and will admit that there may be something I don't know- but so far I have used the mic on every channel at distances of only 10 to 20 feet and there is terrible static. Sitting completely still was not too bad- but I expected a lot more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by josephBHG Seriously awful
Wow, this product was a massive disappointment. I wanted it to do something simple, just let me do tutorial video recordings. Literally, me standing in front of a screen, not moving, but using the lapel mic to ensure good quality audio recording. I figured for over $100 this system would provide it. It's unusable. The sound is horrible, muffled and static-y. I can't imagine how poor the sound quality would be if I were actually moving around, because standing three feet from the camera, motionless, the sound quality is worse than if I use the internal mic in the camera! What a waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wynand Big dissapointment
Based on Sony's reputation, I reckoned this would be a great product, and I bought 2 of these. Both the same: it is unusable due to the amount of static/noise, even at very short distances.
An expensive mistake.
