I was reading some reviews on here and I think that some people aren't using the system right.

Let me just clear things up.

There is a difference between mic and line level. People were claiming that it was too quiet, and yes, it is EXTREMELY quiet if you do not run it through some sort of mixing board. If I were to plug my mic straight into the transmitter, then there's no way I'd be able to hear myself over all the instruments. But, if you're playing at a place where the sound guy can run in ears then you can give your transmitter to him and he can run the monitor outs of the board into your transmitter. These signals will then be "line level" and that's what this system (and all systems) are made for.

I use this system for mostly every gig I play. I run my own vocal mic through them thanks to a mic splitter and a small mini mixer that I have mounted in my rack case. I plug my mic into the input of the splitter, then one output goes into the board, and one output goes into my mini mixer back at my rack case. The mini mixer then converts the signal to line level and I run stereo outputs into the transmitter.

Don't listen to the people who say it's too quiet. They don't understand this. None of these systems would be loud enough if you're running a mic level signal! This is a very good in ear system. The transmitter is metal and could definitely take a little of a beating, and the bodypack, although made of plastic, could also take a beating as well.

I would definitely recommend this system because it's very easy to set up and even with the setup I'm running (my mic splitter is kinda broken) it still produces clear sound and it's very easy to hear myself on stage.

To all these people saying that it's too quiet, if you set it up the correct way, then you could have this thing absolutely blowing up your ear drums.

All in all, a great wireless system.

The band decided to go with in ear monitors and other band members spent a little more to get the Shure 300 system. I thought I would save some cash and get the M2 system. The first thing i noticed was the really cheap and flimsy ear buds, but I held out hope... really... is it possible to spend that much and still have a bad system. I have a professional sound tech that has made a living as a sound tech for a long time & I am aware of the difference between Mic level & Line level. Trust me... The M2 was completely useless & I will be using wedges until my return is processed... I know the price seems like a lot, but spend the money to get a better system... I hate to admit I was wrong... But... This was definitely the wrong system... I would give 0 stars, but that option was not available...

    These units are great. Excellent sound and loud volume with lots of headroom. Great alternative if you don't want to spend over a grand for a set. Range is more than you would need in any gig.

      Comments about Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System:

      Excellent value...expected to pay far more for an in-ear wireless monitor system. If you sing with a loud band, you need one of these. Far too many times, the stage monitors at a venue will be subpar and you run the risk of over-singing (and losing your voice) just to hear yourself. The only big problem is convincing the venue's sound person to let you use it!! Had a gig at a famous NYC club recently and the sound man insisted that I would not need the in-ear monitor. I relented and did not use it. Guess what...the stage monitor gave out in the middle of the set. I will never back down again :)

      Comments about Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System:

      The M2 is a great wireless in-ear system! Features: Stereo signal- huge asset over others in this price range. it's easy to pan between L/R on the unit as well. Range- haven't had any problems with interference or limitations in my experience with this unit. Quality: The housing doesn't seem as strong and sturdy as some other wireless units i've used, but so far no complaints.

        Comments about Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System:

        I'm the soundman for a classic rock band that plays 3-4 times a month. We all work day jobs and only have 45 minutes to an hour for setup and sound check at various local clubs and sports bars. The stages are way too small and we have to be careful not to disturb the patrons who are eating and watching sporting events before we start our shows. Conventional monitors were out of the question because of the size, setup/ equalization time and poor acoustical conditions so in-ear monitors were the best solution. We use 3 M2 systems that have worked flawlessly for almost 2 years now. The bass player even dropped one of the recievers hard and bent the concentric pot but I was able to easily take it apart and bend it back with no problems.
        The mix mode allowed me to send 1 aux mix from the board and a direct out from each singers channel to the transmitter that way they could turn up the vocal at their recievers and leave me alone to concentrate on the main mix. Having a low stage volume is critical to getting a great main mix when you play in small or poor acoustical venues and the M2's allow for not only a better monitor mix but a much cleaner main mix for the audience to enjoy.
        I really miss the M2 in-ear monitors when I mix other bands and have to use their sound system with traditional floor monitors.
        If you want an upgrade to your sound system and a superior monitor system to floor monitors run out to your LOCAL Audio Technica Dealer and get the M2 in-ear system!

              Comments about Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System:

              I've had my M2s for over a year now, and they are rock solid. I can't imagine being on stage without them. Was very easy to adjust all the settings to get an optimal mix and level between vocals and instruments balanced between left and right ears.The health of my voice and ears now owes much to A-T.

              I use them 2-3 times per week, and am very impressed with the comfort and feel of the buds. I thought I would have to shell out for custom buds, but after each time I use them, it becomes less and less a desire. They sound great and the noise cancelling is very good. I've added an ambiance mic when solo, which really makes a difference interacting with a crowd I can hear.

              Once you experience the M2, I doubt you will ever wedge again. Just walk out of that sweet spot of a floor monitor and you'll understand that will never happen with the M2.

              Comments about Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System:

              Since going to a quite stage at our church I needed the best in-ear monitoring possible and went with custom molded monitors by Westone. Therefore, I needed a quality wireless system to complete my setup. I found everything I needed and more in the Audio Technica M2 system. I couldn't be more pleased with the value I received for the money I invested. I literally took it out of the box, plugged it in, installed batteries, turned it on and it worked! I guess I could have spent a lot more money, but I'm not real sure as to what I would have accomplished other than having less monney in my pocket.
              Thanks AT,

              Comments about Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System:

              Audio-Technica M2 In-Ear Wireless Monitor System!!As a vocalist in a hard rock band this is the best piece of equipment I have ever purchased. If I can help it I will never perform another show without them. The headphone as you have been reading is junk, but replace them with a nice set if in-ears and you got yourself a great set. I got in-ear molds at a place on line. www.earplugsuperstore. For $115.00 they sent me an impressions kit. I molded them myself, sent them back, and in two weeks I got a fresh pair of in-ear molds. These molds replace the existing buds on your head phones. If you move around on stage like you should this is a must. In-ear monitors are so important to me. I no longer have to fight the band to hear myself at practice, and I no longer have to deal with floor monitors on stage. The best thing is I can hear myself crystal clear, in increases my vocal endurance, and best of all I don?t have ringing ears an after practice and a gig. I would defiantly recommend these to anyone. I have had this set for 6 months now.
