Review 1 for Wireless Microphone

Yes it works With Wii, even though it's not on box
Date:April 28, 2010
We bought The Beatles Rockband for the Wii, and then went onto the Logitech website to order a mic. I did the mic selection based on what would work with the Wii. This wireless mic showed as my only option. After ordering it and receiving it I looked at the packaging and no where did it state that it would work with the Wii. I contacted Logitech before opening the box and after going to level two support I was reassured that it would work.
Set up seamed easy but it took many tries to actually get the mic to sync. I was just about to call tech support when it synced. Although the set up was as stated in the manual, a little more detail would of been nice or better mic feed back, or even larger print.
All in all I tested the mic on one song before writing this review and the mic worked just fine, I on the other hand did not. I guess I need more practice I only scored 55.
So if you want wireless and would like a mic that feels real I would get this one, but I wish it was more in the $50.00 range. Cause if you want 2 mics it will cast you over $150.00 at the stated price on the Logitec site, and that was the price of the Wii itself!

Comparison of SingStar, Wireless Vantage, and RockBand Microphones
I’ve been waiting for this microphone patiently since it was first announced by Logitech ever so long ago. While the $80 price tag seemed a bit steep, the desire of having a completely wireless RockBand set made it worth the cost.
The microphone itself is significantly larger than the normal RockBand microphone. It’s closer in length to the SingStar microphone, with a windscreen that is about 1.5 inches in diameter. Despite the increased size, its weight is not that much more than the RockBand mic, and it feels well-balanced once the batteries are in. The remainder of the mic is about the same width as the RockBand mic, so it easily fits into the same clip on my mic stand. The box also includes a wrist strap (mine had 2 actually), which attaches at the bottom near the antenna and should be helpful for preventing accidental drops. The receiver/stand comes with a fairly long cord, allowing it to be placed as far away from the system as needed (excess cord can be wrapped around the bottom of the stand). I had hoped that it would also be used to charge internal batteries within the mic as well, unfortunately it runs off of two standard AA batteries instead, but it does claim a battery life of up to 20 hours, so battery changes should not be too frequent at least.
On my first trial of the mic, I simply fired up RockBand, synced the mic, and chose a song, without touching any in-game settings (volume, sensitivity, etc). The mic appears to amplify to a higher volume than the standard mic, and its sensitivity was dead-on with the same settings that I’d been using for the RockBand mic. It had no trouble picking up my voice at all, and I could do tambourine/cowbell sections in the game with a even the lightest tap of the windscreen.
Next, I tried a range test. The booklet claims that it works up to 30 feet, and unfortunately my condo is not large enough for me to get that far away. It could easily pick me up in my tiny backyard, which is at most 25 feet from the PS3. I then tried going upstairs while singing, and got to the furthest point away in the house. It had no trouble picking me up through the floor and two walls (door open).
All in all, this is a very fine wireless microphone that is definitely worth its rather hefty price tag. I’d recommend it if anyone wants their RockBand 2, Guitar Hero, or other singing games to be fully wireless. Note: it does not appear to work with SingStar.
