    I am looking into a bunch of stuff and a wireless doohicky is one of them. I have looked at lots of companies and I haven't been impressed with the specs on any of them and I haven't been impressed with the one I tried. I want to have the really low frequency response that they all seem to lack so my B-string doesn't sound so weak and tinny. Any one else have this problem? Any that you like?

    Every wireless I've ever tried has had a detrimental effect on low end tone. The only one that I've heard that doesn't is the X-Wire, which was digital. They aren't made anymore, and while they preserved the low end, the digital-analog conversion process compressed the sound somewhat.

    My solution: use a cable.

    The Sennheiser 1092 is a very good wireless sytem based off of the design of the X-Wire.

    I own one and Im completely happy with the sound. The only thing that bothers me is that the batery dies very quickly. I change it before each gig and Im fine. Oh, it does have a light that give you plenty of warning time before the sound quality degrades BTW.

    Peace
