Wireless Mic adapters
My name is Peter (newbie) Forgive me if Ive posted this in the wrong section.
I'm Lead vocalist in a 50's and 60's Rock n' Roll band here in OZ.
Im currently using a Shure SM58 which runs through a vocal Harmoniser for when I do backing vocals.Currently looking at wireless adapters as I like to get out amongst the dancers and get them involved.
Looking at the market i see a variety of types. The three I'm considering is the Xvive U3, Boss wl-30xlr ( both around $360) and the Joyo MW1. ($170)
Has or is anyone using these?
My concern about these is the battery life they are saying 4-5 hours is this achievable.?
The Boss unit runs AA battery the other two run rechargeable Lithium.
An idea how long it takes to charge the Xvive and the Joyo?
There is a big difference in price with the Joyo is the quality an issue.?
Aesthetically how do these stack up? do they look cheap and nasty or professional.
Any comments and advice is greatly appreciated.

I can offer some insights into the options you mentioned:
Xvive U3 and Boss WL-30XLR:
Battery Life: The advertised 4-5 hours of battery life is achievable for most wireless systems. However, it can vary based on factors like usage and the specific frequencies and power settings.
Battery Type: The Boss WL-30XLR uses AA batteries, which can be convenient to replace. The Xvive U3 and Joyo MW1 use rechargeable lithium batteries.
Charging Time: Charging times for lithium batteries can vary, but it's generally within a few hours.
Price: The Boss WL-30XLR and Xvive U3 are on the higher end in terms of price, likely reflecting their build quality and brand reputation.
Price: The Joyo MW1 is more budget-friendly, which can make it an attractive option, but it may not be as feature-rich as the others.
Build Quality: Lower-priced units can sometimes feel less robust and might not have the same level of build quality and durability as more expensive options.
Aesthetics: Aesthetics are subjective, but lower-priced units might not have the same sleek or professional look as higher-end models.
When it comes to wireless systems, reliability is crucial for live performances. It's essential to consider factors like signal interference, range, and build quality. Since you mentioned your band performs in a live setting, you might want to prioritize these aspects.
One way to gather more information is to read reviews from musicians who have used these specific models. They can provide real-world insights into battery life, ease of use, and overall satisfaction.
Finally, remember that the choice between these models might also depend on your budget and how often you plan to use the wireless system. If it's for occasional gigs, a more budget-friendly option might suffice. However, for heavy and regular use, investing in a higher-quality system could be more cost-effective in the long run.
Good luck with your search and your performances!
