More handling noise than shure, awkward start
I am a full time mobile DJ and live performer using this mic multiple times per week. This is a great sounding mic, but there is significantly more handling noise than Shure wireless mics that are only $50 more. If you are leaving it on a mic stand, it is not such a big deal, but I am always using it as a handheld or handing it to other presenters to use as a handheld. Handling noise with my shure sm58 wireless is almost a non-issue, but with this mic, it is really noticeable.
The muting system is really nice, but the turn-on/turn-off time is just a hair too long. It is twice as long as with my Shure. Nearly every single time I 'think' I have held the button on the Audio Technica long enough to turn it on... but no ... now I have to start over. And at a paying gig, you need to spend your time doing other things besides repeatedly trying to turn the microphone on.
Wireless coverage and ease of set-up is fantastic. Zero interference, zero extraneous digital noise, and zero drop-outs so far.
In summary, if I had to do it again, I would pay the extra $50 and get a Shure with a faster turn-on time and much less handling noise.
