Wireless on a budget.

The Audio-Technica ATW-252 Freeway VHF Wireless Microphone System is designed to provide reliable performance, easy setup and clear, natural sound quality. The Freeway VHF Wireless System from the 200 series includes the ATW-R250 receiver, and the ATW-T202 handheld microphone/transmitter. A novel dipole antenna system on the receiver improves operation by providing a ground element in addition to the usual signal element.

ATW-R250 receiver

The ATW-R250 receiver includes a space-saving switching power supply that automatically adapts to changes in mains voltage. Unlike bulky linear power supplies, this switching power supply is lightweight and compact; it uses only a single outlet space.

ATW-T202 Handheld transmitter

The ATW-T202 handheld transmitter features a unidirectional dynamic microphone element. The ATW-202 handheld transmitter uses internal 9-volt battery and has an Off/Standby/On switch, input Trim (level) adjustment and battery-save switch.

Audio-Technica ATW-252 200 Series Freeway VHF Handheld Wireless System Features:

  • Advanced dipole antenna system for extended operating range
    Power, RF, and AF Peak indicators
    Volume control, 1/4" output jack and space-saving power supply

  • So much Interference

    As reviewed by GERALD MARSH on 10/15/2013

    I bought this mic system because the sale seemed like a pretty good deal. $80 for the whole package? You pay $100 just for a receiver alone without the sale price. I was very impressed with the range and sound quality at my first try. The mic sounded like a wired SM48 and the range was very good, however, the trouble all began when i turned the mic off. As soon as I turned off the mic, a LOUD static noise came from the receiver and would not stop until i turned the mic back on. It sounded terrible, and definitely would have ruined any show. DO NOT USE THIS MICROPHONE UNLESS you are going to use it as a permanent installment where you know that the microphone will not be turned off until the receiver is silenced. ALSO BEWARE THAT VHF MICROPHONES DO NOT WORK WELL AROUND STRONG WIFI SIGNALS.

  • Great Wireless Handheld System

    As reviewed by Jeff Oefelein on 2/8/2010

    I was reluctant to purchase a lower priced handheld wireless system as they never perform. The first time I hooked up the ATW-252 system, it sounded great and had good range with no hissing or drop outs. The noise handling of the mic is fairly low and I was really impressed. I will definately recommend this to anyone looking for a decent wireless without breaking the bank.

  • Terible

    As reviewed by MITCHELL LISOWSKI on 5/6/2013

    I was just DJing a school dance with this Mic last night and it completely ruined the show. As soon as I plugged in my lighting setup a loud noise rang through my speakers and wouldn't stop until I plugged them in some where else. About an hour later my system started doing it again I I came to find out when I unplugged my Mic it stopped. Do not recommend this Mic!
