    Hey gang,
    My wife is a fitness instructor and has just gotten to the point where she will need a wireless head worn system looking for suggestion in the under $500 range

    These folks specialize in that area .. maybe you can get some ideas: http://www.supreme-audio.com/headsets.htm Their prices can usually be beaten elsewhere except for some of their specialty products which are exclusive. (They also sell packages: http://www.supremeaudio.com/cgi-bin...page=wireless&shop=supreme2&cart=2041931.3892 )

    There's 2 parts to the equation ... a headset that stands up to the bouncing and sweat .. and a bodypack that does the same. There are also headsets that have the transmitter attached, but they are bulky usually (except maybe for the Samson Airline). I like the AT 3000 system for reliability and you can get a bodypack system for $400 ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/Audio-Techn...=US_Pro_Audio_Microphones&hash=item5d4462c418 ) .. then add whatever headset she would prefer.

    Give Ben or Kat a call up at NLFX Pro. They can lay out several different options for you.

    The EV RE2 system with the BPU2 and the HM2 headset is in that price range. I use them with professional dance instructors. There is not quite as much bouncing or sweat compared to a fitness instructor...but there is still more than average range of motion, and heavy breathing.

    There are a LOT of combo units in that same price range. I like the HM2 headset...the mic is relatively sensitive, and has a decent wind screen included.

    I am thinking I would like something she can use and maybe I can buy a handheld or lav if I needed to use it also

    Almost any of the better Shure, Audio-Technica, EV and Sennheiser sets would fit that need.

    I have a new RE2 back pack I got for a project that never started. I would be willing to sale. The only thing is I did not get any mic with it. Just the receiver and back pack.

    My only reservation with the GTD stuff is the handhelds and the bodypacks are made of a lighterweight plastic and may not stand up to the bouncing, dropping and sweating of a fitness instructor.

    The handhelds are plastic and the concern is valid. Not so much on the bodypacks. They're just as tough as other bodypacks I've seen/used. The headsets are behind-the-ear style.
