Brilliant Quality

I am amazed! This headset mic is comfortable (which is not often found in headset mic's for a cheap price like this!), sturdy (dosen't fall of easy), and makes a natural sound with little to no feedback. We used this mic to mic several cast members in a musical production, and it sounds clear and natural. For the price, you simply can't get better. I know that if you were putting on an official professional show you would probably use a less visible mic like a lapel, but for amatuer theatre, and other things like announcements, teaching etc, this is a great choice; just add a belt pack transmitter with Mini XLR port and grab a reciever and ta da! You have a great mic to use. I would reccomend it alot for amatuer theatre, teaching, and many other things! 5 Star!
