Great value for money
Esben S, 22.05.2021
This is a fairly new product, but seems to provide a great value for the money. A more professional product would be 4-5 times the price.

The transmitter/receiver adds 5.87 ms latency - I measured it accurately. This is barely noticeable on its own, but will of course add to latency elsewhere in your chain. The transmitter seems to apply a high-pass filter with a cutoff around 45 Hz, which is certainly no problem for guitar. It also adds a little noise, but quite low and "white", so again no problem.
I've experienced no dropouts or connection issues, but have so far only used it at home.

When testing the sound quality with a guitar with an active pickup, the AirBorne was transparent if the Cable Tone filtering was set to off. Note that 'off' is all the way clockwise - opposite of what one might expect. Hence CCW = more filtering.
In an A/B setup with a strat with passive pickups and 3-6 m guitar cable the Cable Tone came in handy, in order to match the treble roll-off due to the guitar cable.
When switching between a wired and wireless connection to the same effects and amp, it's essential to compensate for the effect of the cable. Otherwise separate presets with different EQ would be required to accommodate this.

Pros:
- Great value for money
- Transparent sound quality
- Cable Tone filter useful, switching between playing wired and wireless
- Convenient built-in charger in the receiver
- Colour-coded channels, to easily see link between transmitter and receiver
- Potentially 5.8 GHz is less crowded than the 2.4 GHz band

Cons:
- Impossible to tell the difference between Power and Channel buttons (before pressing it), with the transmitter plugged in
- Counter-intuitive direction of the Cable Tone knob
- Low-battery indicator seemed to kick in just shortly before the transmitter switched off
- Might not trust the "dongle" transmitter in a live performance, but would prefer one tied to the strap.

Can't keep connection, dongle flops all over the place
squierjosh, 22.04.2021
I had high hopes for this. There's five different channels that you can easily click through, and the device will tell you the best connection. Super feature. However, even with all bars and the green light, if I'm more than 5 feet away, the sound gets really garbled. If I move the dongle around, it gets garbled. And you can't avoid moving the dongle around, it just flops around freely in the input jack. I think it's the weight. It's always trying to point down.

The features are great, everything the site brags about it having is nice: Powered by your normal power supply, you can put it on your pedal board, built-in tuner, charging station for the dongle. None of that matters if it won't keep a connection though. Completely useless product as it is.

bang for the buck
alexey_obukhov, 27.04.2021
I mean overall its what you expect for that price: plasticky kind of feel, cheap materials. But it gets the job done, in my apartment building (lots of wifi connections + HomeKit devices and airplay streaming speakers) never experienced any kind of issues with signal.

Wish it had clip and extension cable to attach it to the strap because transmitter is really huge.

Adjustable jack plug won't last long guaranteed

Funktion super - Verarbeitung naja
FrankPrank, 25.05.2021
Es gibt viele Knöpfe an unerwarteten Stellen. Deshalb war die erste Inbetriebnahme etwas schwierig. Ohne Manual ging es zumindest bei mir nicht. Danach lief das System aber hervorragend und sehr zuverlässig.

Ich habe den Transmitter in einer Fender Strat, dort gibt es am Output-Jack ja gerne mal Probleme mit solchen Systemen. Hier kein Problem. Der Transmitter passt, schmiegt sich aber geknickt nicht wirklich der Oberfläche des Gitarrenkorpusses an. Für mich ist das aber kein wirkliches K.O.-Kriterium.

Verarbeitung ist eher mäßig, für einen Hobby-zuhause-Rocker wie mich aber absolut hinreichend. Ist ja nicht so, als würde ich jeden Tag auf einer neuen Bühne stehen und Roadies würden mein Equipment tragen.
