No more stalling! Stop hemming and hawing and just get one already!

I've narrowed it down to 2 mics.

option 1:
Audio-Technica ATW-701/H92-TH Wireless System

PROS:
- adjustable frequency
- easy to change batteries

CONS:
- wire between headset and belt pack - make changing out the mic challenging. I would have to thread the wire through the corset. also, clunky belt pack.
- almost twice the cost ($400)

Option 2:
Samson Airline Micro Earset System

PROS:
- no wires. super easy and portable
- almost 1/2 the cost ($250)

CONS:
- while the battery is easily USB rechargeable, it can only be changed by authorized repair folks. so if I have a show and the batter is dying, I can't just pop in two more AAs.
- cannot change the frequency. so if someone else is on stage or there is interference, I'm kind of stuck. the other person might have the ability to adjust their frequency, but might not.

I cannot testify to the quality of either.
both have mixed reviews, though they are mostly positive.
both have warranties
- airline - lifetime tech support + 2 year warranty included in cost
- audio technica - 3 year that I pay extra for: $70 (factored into the $400)


since I'm dropping a huge chunk of change on this, I want to make sure I'm getting the right thing. I would have bought the airline right out if had adjustable frequencies. $250 is easier to swallow than $400.

I still cannot decide.
in a perfect world, I would get both!

does anyone here have a suggestion?

it's only been 2 years, so I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on picking up my wireless mic.

right now, the countryman is out of my price range but the Samson AirLine looks AWESOME. the wires to the battery pack have always been a problem for me. but the reviews are mixed.

last chance to talk me out of it.

also, people I share the stage with, do you have the ability to change the channel for your mics?

what channel should I get?
mabjustmab: (starbuks)
it's time. I have a bazillion shows this summer/fall/heading into winter. I'm turning into a veritable "Rock Star". livin' life on the road.

I want to bring my own mic with me. it's time I finally kick in the pennies to pick up a decent wireless mic.

who knows the most about such things?

1. how much should I expect to spend?
2. what should I ~not~ buy?
3. what do I need?
4. where do I get one? (internet?)
5. suggested brands?
6. features?
7. do you/know someone who has access to discounts or one you are selling?


any help is good help!
Thanks, LJ Braintrust!
