Great for a home studio environment
tomtomssi, 04.06.2019
I use this at my home studio between my guitars and amp heads.

The range is nice and it works even through walls. I usually play in a pretty small room next to a lot of gear and electronics but I have not noticed any interference.

The sound quality is clear and I have not noticed any difference compared to a regular cable.

The build quality is okay. This is not flimsy but its still plastic so I would not want to drop these on a hard surface. After a few months I started to hear some rattling inside like something had come loose but these still work.

The on/off switch could use a re-design. Its too similar to the channel switch and quite often I accidentally use the wrong switch.

The transmitter runs out of battery a lot faster than the receiver. The description tells you this has up to 6 hours of battery life but I don't feel like the transmitter can last for 6 hours of constant play.

Overall, this thing is great. It has given me a lot of mobility inside a rather small studio where cords can get tangled quite easily.

Not bad if you don't have an active instrument
LucidityCrash, 11.03.2019
Using these with a Harley Benton BZ-4000 NT. Device fits the socket well and can be folded fairly flat to the body. The construction isn't the best but it is by no means flimsy, the on/off switch could definitely do with improving, it certainly needs to be a different shape to the channel button.

Range is reasonable, works all through my house through several walls and even up stairs. But obviously be aware this uses the same frequency band as a lot of (most) WIFI devices so if you are reliant on this you may need to do some frequency planning.

My biggest complaint is whenever I switch to using the Active mode on my Bass I can hear a high pitched whine. This is easily drowned out when actually playing but is very audible during the quiet times.
I've seen reports of this about other similar devices, some of which explicitly state now that they are not suitable for active devices, something the description or instructions for this do not do.

Surprised that it is this good!!!
Roofdrake, 10.05.2019
Never had a wireless system before and this is my first. For the price I felt it couldn't pass this up.
Pros:
The overall system is easy to use, you have a transmitter (instrument) and a receiver (amp). Out of the box I was able to test it right then and there, as it had a pretty good charge already. Plugged it in and started playing. I have roughly 1500 square feet of a home and was able to walk around the house and still able to send the signal to the amp. There was no delay or latency in the signal. I only have tried channel one but so far, I have no complaints to report. I would buy again if I need too.
Cons:
None so far.
Note: I haven’t used this at a show yet or band practice, so I can't say that it will be good or bad in that type of situation.

Best bang for the buck out there?
Bo E., 24.04.2019
I wanted to go wireless for a while but since I'm just in a small local band didn't want to bust the bank.
This thing is just amazing for the price, it's small, battery time is more than enough for a gig (or even two to three gigs) and it just works.

There is no noticeable signal loss or latency vs a cable that I can hear.

At home I did found that that wifi signals may affect performance, my practice rig is literally next to my wifi router and I got dropouts when only 5 meters away from the receiver.

At practice however I haven't had a single dropout and was even able to leave the room and walk for more than 10 meters with a thick concrete wall in between.

The other guitarist in my band was very skeptic because of the price... but now also uses one :p

Thomann's home brand did it again !

Cheapest reliable wireless system
Moonsugar, 21.05.2019
I have been using this for practice at home, rehearsals and even an outdoor show recently. It performed flawlessly, no issues whatsoever. Sound-wise it seems to have less noise than cables, even the more expensive ones I have, overall great clarity. Worked perfectly for the advertised distance and only had an issue once with a lot of metal equipment and a wall between the units.

I did not encounter the issue some other commenters had with active pickups (EMG), even though I plugged in a fresh pair of 9v batteries.

The build quality is not that impressive as it is all plastic but perfectly reasonable for this price, looks fairly sturdy.

1st impression: ok; 2nd: good; 3rd: they're going back
Dirtnap, 14.03.2018
1) during the charging sequence one of the LEDs was not glowing on one of the modules. I thought it was just a glitch because they all seemed to work after that.
During 1st use I got interference straight away on channel 1. I switched to channel 2 and it seemed okay for a while until it started there, too. After trying some different positions in different rooms in various locations, I realized it would just have to be something to cope with.
2) Wow, in a way, really, really convenient. That is really nice not having to worry about cables twisting and pulling and getting caught.
3) I soon realized that the build is not really acceptable, especially considering the application of being mobile. The flimsy, awkward, slider on/off switch has got to go (before it falls off)
Then I realized that the LED is indeed not working so I decided to relieve it of its duty and send it home.

I realize that all of this branded plastic stuff from China and such is not always the best quality. If it wasn't for the switches I would've gotten a replacement, but in the end, I think I'd rather wait for something better.

Had my reservations but now love it
rodsw, 31.05.2019
The first pair I received had some problems so I was a bit disappointed. But after contacting thomann they confirmed they were faulty (there was a problem with charging the battery) and sent back another pair.
These had no problems and have worked flawlessly for over 6 months now. Very easy to use, no interference no hassle, very good and simple way to remove cables.

Very Good and Excellent Product
Jilvir, 14.03.2019
I bought a cheap one from China but when I test it, its really bad there is too much degradation of sound compared to wired.

But this is very very good product its a cost effective. When I tested it there is no degradation of sound compared to wired. Battery has a good life, range is good and I use it in practice and in Gig.

If you need a wireless for your guitar in good budget I will recommend this product.

Keep Rock'n...

Absolute Gem..
Mageo, 26.10.2018
If you want freedom away from cables then these little Gems do the trick. No loss in sound quality, and just make practice sessions so much easier. I can also move well away from the amp in order to get a better idea of how my sound is being delivered, great option and at a price thats very affordable,,,,

great for jamming at home
ROI Metalhead, 21.05.2019
I bought this for the simple reason of tryin to minimize wires. it works great for playing with no cable from your guitar to your pedals or amp, It sounds almost identical to how it would be on a cable, I was able to play all around my house upstairs and downstairs and still be able hear it through the walls etc etc. The only drawback I had was when I tried to record video of doing covers, it sounded fine but when I checked the playback there was a significant delay on the guitar recording. made it sound like I was playing completely outta time with the track even though when I was recording it sounded bang on. other than that, it was well worth the money! Love it! :)

great value for money
Popinjo, 15.04.2019
i use it for home practice and it serves me really really well. Easy plug & play device, good battery capacity (3 hours playing when the battery is full is no problem). No latency (at least i do not hear any).
Do not know how it would work while gigging, but this is a great ulitity for practicing. And if you compare the price with other wireless solutions, this should be your first choice. Great product for a low price

Disapointment
Kory, 31.12.2017
- With hi-gain amps there is a strong noise in all 4 channels, which is not present when using cable or wireles system from Sennheiser or Shure.
- Cant use it directly into my Behringer X-Air 18 mixer because of WIFI interference (you can have signal from AirBorne or controll X-Air, but not have both running simultaneously)

Good product
Teddy52, 29.11.2018
As far as playing at home for me this is a perfect product. The transmitter uses a little more energy using both for a couple of hours of practice, without switching the devices off. But mucho comfortabile!!!

Does what it's supposed to and performs very well in live situations. Just don?t use it near pocket headphone receivers (Sennheiser, for example).

Fantastic sounding wireless
sknepper, 13.06.2018
With a normal cable I used to get problems with 50Hz buzzing, With these there is no problem and they are digitally clean sounding.
For the price I was very impressed and I can recommend them definately.
