Sound Quality

Both of our Wired and Wireless microphone hires have great sound quality and the only difference would be the connection of the two microphone hires. We would say our Wireless microphone hire has the better quality but a lot of other places may say corded microphones have higher quality.

A wired microphone hire will have a direct and clear signal path which converts into better sound quality. However, if it is not connected correctly or the wire is all tangled up, this will also affect the sound quality. As for wireless microphone hire, due to it connecting to a receiver, wireless microphones may suffer from brief dropouts of sounds and static interferences.


With either of our microphone hires, you will not have any struggles and it is all through the connection of the microphone that really sets which microphone hire is more reliable. A wired microphone hire could be more reliable than a wireless microphone hire. This is due to wireless microphones may have frequency issues and they run on batteries. Our Wireless microphone hire can give you up to 8 hours of use and it is relatively easy to set up as it has auto frequency scan with transmitter setup.

Our wired microphone hire in Sydney works through a single corded signal track that only requires a push into an amp or speaker for it to work. As there is a direct signal path, there wouldn't be any issues regarding the sound quality and no issues of it dropping it out, unlike a wireless microphone hire.

You can use both of our microphone hire for any indoor or outdoor events.
