Overview

The WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System features AKG's unique HDAP (High Definition Audio Performance) technology ensures the best possible, most realistic sound at any time. The system includes an SR 40 MINI receiver, a HT 40 MINI handheld transmitter, a universal power supply with US/UK/EU adapter, and one AA size dry battery.

The SR 40 Mini receiver provides three status LEDs indicating ON/OFF status, received signal strength (RF OK), and audio clipping (AF CLIP). The VOLUME control sets the level at the ΒΌ" output jack. The supplied switched mode power supply operates on any AC voltage from 110 to 240 VAC and includes EU, UK, and US adapters.

The rugged HT 40 Mini handheld transmitter features an ON/OFF/MUTE switch and a sturdy wire-mesh cap protecting the cardioid dynamic microphone element. Battery life of the transmitter is the same legendary "30 hours off a single AA battery" as for the WMS 40 models, reducing the need to replace batteries and thus saving real money in the long run.

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device.

This is a great little mic. The sound is amazing and it only uses a single AA battery, which I have not changed since buying about three months ago. I normally keep the receiver backstage. The only downside to this package is that the reveiver only has 1/4" outputs, which means unnessesary converting =( The receiver has a On/Off switch on the front and clip and range lights. If the mic is out of range, the green RF OK light will turn off. There is a volume knob on the front of the receiver which is very helpful. I have used this mic for events ranging from small meetings to shows with an audience of about 800 people. All vocals have been great. Thank You AKG for a great, inexpensive microphone! Bottom line: I would definitly recommend this Wireless Microphone package to a friend.

First of all I have been using wireless mic's for awhile and I never have been so disappointed in a wireless system I can't believe the great reviews I'm seeing on here everyone must work for the guitar center. The Mic has so much feed back that you can't even turn it up I'm using powered JBL speakers maybe you have to have a cheap system to have the AKG system to work I only gave one star because I didn't see zero

I wasn't expecting this...

By James

Site Member

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

Like many others who have reviewed this little system, I have to say I wasn't expecting much for the price - but I am more than happy with the AKG WMS 40 Mini. Quality is similar to the Perception series, but with quite a bit more mid high response. Great for male vocalists, but for higher ranges you may find yourself pulling back on the mids quite a lot. Good bass response and the highs are crisp. Fixed frequency/Single diversity, but we've had no reception issues so far and we work some pretty big clubs with multiple mic sets. I doubt battery life is what they claim (is it ever?). 30 hours? Really? Maybe in standby mode... we'll see! I purchased this mic for my karaoke business, but have been a professional musician and recording studio owner for over 25 years, so I'm not easily impressed. It's not digital, but it is UHF and the 600mhz frequencies aren't due to be taken in my area any time soon, so this was a great deal! I almost wish I had gone for the dual channel set, it would have been totally worth it.

Worked Like A Charm!

By Marty Kowalski

from Burlington, WI

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

I picked one of these up before DJ/Emceeing a wedding when I was short on cash and time. I was very impressed with the performance of this mic. The officiant did not want to hold the mic during the ceremony, so I had it in a stand about a foot and a half to one side. It picked up the officiant as well as the bride and groom just fine. The reception hall was long and narrow and my booth was in one corner, but the mic came in clear from the complete opposite corner with no static. The receiver has a metal case, however the microphone body is only plastic, so I feel I will have to watch out for it being dropped, or it getting scratched up going into the mic clip. On that note, it did not come with a clip (and the mic body is larger than a standard mic) nor a 1/4 inch patch cable (1/4 inch is the only output, no XLR), so be ready to spend an extra 10 to 15 bucks on accessories. Nevertheless, you're getting great value and performance for the price.

the worst mic ever

By tj mach

from houston texas

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

i bought this mic to MC a MMA event, and was going to use it strictly as an announcer's mic. when i got it there and plugged it in, there was so little gain, i had to turn the channel all the way up JUST to get a signal. the signal was distorted and weak, yet when you tapped the mic on the case or screen anywhere, it boomed so loudly, the speakers would flap. either this mic is garbage, or i got a faulty one. needless to say, i had to use a cabled mic for the night's event...very disappointed.

AKG One Of The Best

By armondo rivas

from pico rivera california

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

This Is a very good mic, for the price you cannot find a better mic. Very Nice Sound very low noise as long as you hold it right. Output is a 1/4" plug but it is balanced, use a TRS to A XLR cable,If You don't have one you can use a quitar cable as long as it is shielded it will work fine, the trs cable you use should also be shielded. It comes with a two year warranty you can't get that with other mics for this price range,If you need a wireless mic buy this one I haven't had it long enough to comment on rellabillty, but it looks well built so don't worry. The mic feels a little light but the ball feels heavy enough to feel and look pro

5 STARS IS NOT ENOUGH

By GERALD MARSH

from Scranton PA

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

this is the most impressive UHF microphone system that I have ever seen for under $300. I tryed it in the store and it worked great, and ended up using it the night that I bought it. The clarity is FANTASTIC, there is no interference at all, and the range is so long, i have not yet had an event that it cut out, so i really don't know how far it can really go. The microphone looks good and feels good, only powered by one AA battery, and it is tough. The receiver is cased in metal and takes up a tiny amount of space compared to similar systems. The antenna is road-ready and the whole system has an unbeatable price. Do not even look anywhere else, this is the perfect system for anyone!

GREAT MIC!!!

By Brad Rogers

from Greenville IL

Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

Hey guys! I've owned 4 AKG wireless Mics in the past and they have all been a great product! I run A Mobile DJ Service and this AKG Mini Wireless is perfect for the job. I was kind of worried about how it would sound because it was such a cheap price but it really surprised me!!! It's crisp and clear and you don't have to worry about any static interruption!!! It's also very small and so easy to hookup!!! I'm getting ready to order another one just to have as back-up. The best feature about this Mic in my opinion is that it only takes one DOUBLE-A battery. I also like that you don't have to sync up the mic like others, just plug-in and you are ready to go. Don't let the cheap price fool you!!! AKG has done it again! Thanks for a great product!!!

    • We Use 15 Band Eq

    Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

    I purchased this just to see if the battery life was as it was advertised, and I'm impressed. 1 single double AA batter lasts 20+ hours of use. The unit goes silent when not receiving a signal which is nice and the mute and on/off or external making it easy to operate. I'm purchasing 6 for my backup singers, and it's nice to have operation free. 1 thing is the mid's are over pronounced so the EQ to flat is strange but it works great, otherwise you'll have feedback as your volume increases.

    Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

    Bought this unit at a great sale price, online. Intended to use it for a church setting. Had horrible feedback every time it was plugged in to our sound system. Tried EVERYTHING to stop the problem, to no avail. Item could not be replaced, because the local store didn't even carry it. Was told it is an "ONLINE ONLY," item. The 800 # was no help, and the local store employees said they had no idea about the product. Finally just got a refund.

      Comments about AKG WMS 40 Mini Vocal Wireless System:

      I purchased the AKG WMS40 mini as a secondary system. I currently use the Shure BLX24/SM58. I am blown away of the quality and sound from the AKG WMS40. It sounds better than the Shure mics I have uses and doesn't have the interference like some of the mics i have used.

      The specs say max distance is 65ft. I have pushed the mic all the way to 150 and no drop out. Sounds the same if you are 5ft or 150ft away.

      This is now my primary wireless mic system. Well done AKG!

      This is a great mic for a decent price, on the down side only 1 freq. So if you buy more than one make sure they are different freq. The other down side no xlr connection, 1/4 only and you have to raise the volume a bit but sounds great, no hisssing clear as can be.
