I'm looking to purchase a pair of wireless microphones, I know the really nice ones go for up to ~$500

But i'm looking for something much cheaper, and just to get me by for now. I was considering this:

But I don't know , Help?

Thanks

You're going to hate it. Crappy mics produce lots of feedback that in some rooms you really cannot control. Do it right the first time.
I use this, http://kpodj.com/audio-technica-atw702-p-100704/
I'm not too crazy about Audio-Technica products but as far as a nice wireless mic, I love that thing. I've had 2 other mics in the past before that one.

Check out the VocalPro UHF-18. I haven't had any issues with it, feedback wise. My only complaint is it isn't a dual mic setup.

VocoPro is a very low end company that I recommend you stay away from. Most of there wireless systems have major drop out issues. Be sure to check out the Shure PGX. Excellent budget system that can be had on ebay for as low as $150.

Never had a single drop out with mine. I had my MC guy outside of a brick building announcing the wedding party to all the guests sitting between me and the receiver.

I was warned it was the lowest end UHF but again not a single drop out problem.

I've had "less expensive" mics in the past, both wired and wireless. Recently, I decided to upgrade to a sure PGX system with the SM58 head. wow... I can't believe how bad the sound (that I thought was good enough) really was before. Spend the extra coin, and sit back knowing you have quality and don't need to worry nearly as much about anything.
