      Comments about Audio-Technica 700 Series Frequency-agile Diversity UHF Wireless Systems:

      I was turned onto this product by a salesman and the product has been more than what i expected. The quality is more than comparable to my hard wired microphones. I love the mobility and the durability. I can say this product is road worthy and I know i will be purchasing another one soon. I recently purchased two wireless guitar systems and I also love them. The down and dirty is they are GREAT!

          I am a piano player/vocalist in a catholic church and this wireless product allows me to play and sing with no wires to encumber me. The 700 series gives my voice clarity and reliability and without wires it gives a professional quality usually found in a wired microphone. Very pleased.

              I use a pair of these units with Lavalier Systems along with two Sony HVR-Z1U HD Cameras. They work flawlessly, very little setup needed and great audio.

              You might find some "carrier hiss" with voice if your levels aren't up to snuff and you need to boost in post. This would be my only complaint for the units.... But, at this price point you cannot go wrong.

              • Q:

                I currently own 3 Audio-Technica 700 series handheld wireless microphones and receivers. The units are almost 4 years old and the warranty is out. We really enjoy the microphones but they are starting to pop and static on occasions when we are singing at an event. I was wondering if audio-technica would maybe have some refurbished 700 series transmitters in stock? I would possibly be interested in purchasing some new handheld transmitters if they would be compatible with the current receivers I have.

                We have an ATW_T701 wireless mic. When we put new batteries in, the green light stays on now and won't mute or turn off when pushing the power button. The only way to turn it off is to remove the batteries. We have tried several different batteries. Any idea what is going on?

                Hi
                I'm (trying) to use the ATW-R700 with ATW-T701 transmitter with my bass guitar. But the sound i get is like i'm using a fuzz/distortian pedal - and no change at all by varying the adjustment - neither by turning the vol knob at the r700 (min/max) nor the inst adjustment from l to m at the T701 (i do have a clear sound by using my guitar cable).

                  The ATW-T501 will also work with an R700 receiver, provided that one only uses one transmitter per receiver for simultaneous use.

                  Thank you for your inquiry. You can only connect one transmitter at a time. In order to use two transmitters, you will need to receivers set to different frequencies.

                  A:

                  You cannot. Each wireless transmitter must operate on its own frequency (channel) and therefore requires a dedicated receiver to go with it.

              • Q:

                We currently use the ATW-R700 with a ATW-T701 transmitter and a lavalier microphone. The lavalier microphone is no longer picking up our voice but tapping it on a hard surface picks up some tapping sound. We therefore believe that the mic is broken.

                We would like to switch to a new lavalier that can be spoken into directly without being clipped onto your shirt or switch to a wireless handheld microphone.

                What mic's do you suggest that are compatible with our setup and readily available?

                The ATW-T702 appears hard to find. Can other manufactures microphones be used with these components?
