    ★★★★★
    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST HEADWORN MIC for LIVE PERFORMANCES!

    For my group PopRox Hawaii, I have tried the Countryman, AKG, Shure, and DPA headword mics, and they have nothing on the Sennheiser HSP4. This HSP4-ew is a very specific model for my live performances. www.reverbnation.com/PopRoxHawaii POPROX HAWAII : Tributes to Billy Idol & Prince & Def Leppard

    PRO:

    Clear, clean, excellent noise rejection, built sturdy, fits perfectly with Sennheiser bodypack transmitters, outperforms the competition hands down.

    CON:

    NONE.

    BEST USES:

    Live bands in any type of stage performance.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.
