We've been using a set of Senheisser wireless microphones forever. You can hear the quality in my Real Estate Tour video when we added the Lavalier to the agent. It's pretty good. Lately though, they've been acting a bit funny and dropping audio. I think they are about ready to give up the ghost. There's a wedding tomorrow, and I wanted to have at least some cheap backup solution in case the Senheisser's totally died. So the only place open tonight was Fry's. I passed by the wireless microphone section and they only carried one set of Sony WCS-999's.

Oh well, it can't be that bad. I just need it for a backup solution in case i'm dead in the water. I was wrong...soo soo wrong. After testing it out for not even 5 minutes, these things drop audio if it's just 5 feet away. It's garbage, it's crap. I researched some reviews over at bhphotovideo.com and it's true. Everyone has the same problems and they don't get further than a few feet. Even at super close range it's sounds like crap with a whole bunch of hissing. There are no levels to adjust, it's just crap. Ok that's my review, they are going back in the morning.

I still need to order another set of Wireless Lavs. What is everyone else using? Give me a holla in the comments section.
