" ...  Neutral tone - It doesn't sound overly deep or high, it sounds realistic and natural, so for the sake of interviews or speeches this is what you want. ... Low cut off switch - This is one of the best features by far, you can take out some of the background noise if its an issue.  ...  "

" ...  The audio quality is excellent. ... They sound just as good as the $500 ones I was borrowing from my friend. ... It's fine, it doesn't effect sound quality, but one good drop and I think they will shatter apart.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The variety of included cables and adapters made it all the easier to accomplish my recording goals regardless of what I was using to record. ... You get the TRS to TRRS cable adapter that works great when tested with my phones (Zenfone 5z and Note 4), you get the receivers and transceivers of course, an extra foam windscreen, 2 fuzzy windscreens for outdoor recording, A 3.5mm TRS cable for plugging into a DSLR or camcorder directly, a 3.5mm to XLR cable for plugging into an audio interface, 2 lav microphones (1 for each transceiver), and a cold shoe adapter to allow you to hook it onto things. ... Lots of hook up options - you can hook it up to everything and every cable worked great and recorded well with good audio quality  ...  "
comment
" ...  It comes with a mini plug cable for the receiver. ... It also comes with a splitter for the extended mini plug that most phones use. ... The one item I'd nitpick is that one of the cable mounts is ever so slightly tilted on one of the receivers so the cable's screw down retainer has a difficult time engaging the threads. ... At this point I'm going to say it's good enough and it's on the receiver which means that cable is not going to be subjected to much movement anyway.  ...  "
