When it comes to microphone hire, it's not uncommon for customers to have specific questions related to their events. These are the most popular topics that come up for wireless microphone hire.

How does a wireless microphone work?

A wireless microphone works a bit like a radio, with a transmitter and a receiver connection. The transmitter and the receiver are set to the same radio frequency so the radio signals from the microphone can be ‘heard' and sound produced.

What do I need in order to use a wireless microphone?

A wireless microphone needs the microphone, transmitter, and receiver. To generate sound, the wireless microphone set up needs to be connected to a speaker. At Party Hire Group, our wireless microphone packages are all-in-one, so everything you need can be hired together for you to create the best possible sound experience for your event.

How far can I travel with a wireless microphone and still be heard?

A wireless microphone can work anywhere from 10 to 20 metres from the receiver. The main consideration when calculating the distance that your microphone can work up to is the set up of the space and any possible interference. Interference usually happens if there's more than one microphone being used in the same space. The best way to avoid this is to keep a distance between multiple wireless microphones being used, usually 1.5 metres apart. You should also avoid standing directly in front of your speaker, and a sound check is always recommended before your event formally starts.

How long does a wireless microphone battery last?

A wireless microphone battery can last anything up to 8 to 10 hours. It's best to turn the microphone off when it's not being used to maximise it's battery life. If there are periods of time during your event that the microphone is not being used for more than 15 minutes, you can also recharge the microphone to keep it running for longer later.

What is the size of a wireless microphone? Can children use a wireless microphone?

A wireless microphone is 24cm long. The width is about the same for this length, which might be difficult for children under 6 years to hold. If young children need to use a wireless microphone, it's best to have an adult help them hold it.

Is there any difference in sound quality for corded and wireless microphones?

For standard events like weddings, birthday parties, and especially occasions, there is minimal to no difference in the sound quality for corded and wireless microphones. At Party Hire Group, all of our microphone hires come with a portable speaker.

What are wireless microphones most often used for?
