Question about Shure SLX UHF Headset Wireless System Microphone

2 Answers

Response Hi  Thanks for your quick response and helpful answers. I've done some research and since found out some interesting things about Shure and wireless mikes in general.  Consider the following; 1. In a theatrical environment where more than 2 mikes operate in proximity, I've been informed Shure is not the way to go. 2. The Sennheiser 100 and 300 series is a more superior and CHEAPER purchase. 3. Sennheiser is better built (German I believe) Shure is Chinese manufacture. 4. If you buy 1 X 300 series Senn, you get free software that from a laptop can scan your wireless environment for interference problems. 5. System Sound, one of the biggest operators in Australia, was offered the most expensive Shure mikes for FREE and they turned them down for quality reasons. 6. Sennheisers are metal cased and can be encased in rubber for water resistance and toughness. At this stage, but with more research to make 100% sure, I will be trading in the Shures for top of the line Sennheisers. In essence, replacing the whole system. Distance from mixer to receivers is approximately 10 metres by the way and there is a wall between them, so i'll check positioning there. Thanks for your help Cheers Paul

If I knew you were looking, I would have suggested Sennheisers in the first place.

My son's leappad turns on but stays on the leappad start up screen. I have tried new batteries, no luck. After some research I found that you can repair or reset it on the leappad connect. Howe

This site is worthless...more interested in tricking you with AD links than giving you an answer. Press Volume Down, Home and Right Directional...then power on. Connection screen will appear, connect it to your PC and select repair after tune up is done.

Then delete your profile on here and report the link you followed from google as worthless.

I have a used Compaq evo n6 and am wondering if it is able to connect to the interest wirelessly. I tried a few things, but still not sure.

The EVO n610c does not have a built in wireless card. You can purchase a USB wireless card at most Stores that sell computers. Walmart, bestbuy, Office Depot, and others.

Hope this answers all your questions

Wireless guitar system was working fine for about 2 hours & then the transmitter would have to be turned on again & again every few seconds to continue playing. this system is practically brand new...

This has the earmarks of battery problem... Supposedly this uses a 9 volt battery... You CANNOT use rechargeable batteries in these as the actual voltage of the rechargeable is lower than alkaline and they will fail quickly and as they age you may get only seconds of operation. When they go off the battery will recover a bit and even look like it comes on again. Do NOT count on the battery LED to give actual answer. When you turn on the unit, read the battery voltage under load with a meter. It should be at least 8.5 volts. NEXT possibility: A chronic problem with body packs is the battery contacts. There is a fine line between having good contact and being able to get batteries out. I have seen where people stuff paper in to increase tension on the contacts.

Wireless Microphone low volume

The PGX1 bodypack has a switch on the side to set the gain. Make certain that switch is in the "mic" position. Otherwise, simply turn up the volume on your mixer.
