Typically, it takes me a week or so of usage to develop an opinion about a product. Based on 30+ years of reviewing products, I can tell fairly quickly if a specific item performs as promised. When I feel a product is not performing well, I repeat my tests multiple times to rule out user error.
However, when a product performs as poorly as this one, it’s my practice to contact the manufacturer to see if possibly the unit I purchased may be defective.
In this case, it took me three weeks to evaluate Azden’s PRO-XR wireless microphone system as the results I was getting was a far stretch from what was promoted on Azden’s website and from other reviews I viewed online. While it’s my practice to purchase the products I review, rarely do I need to contact the manufacturer as I simply post my opinions and experiences.
However, when a product performs as poorly as this one, it’s my practice to contact the manufacturer to see if possibly the unit I purchased may be defective. After sharing a draft version of this review with the Azden representative, I was to understand that nothing was wrong with the unit and it was my impression they were not surprised with the results.
For this review, I thought it best to compare Azden’s PRO-XR to RODE’s popular, and similar priced Wireless Go model so that you can hear the differences between the two models in comparable scenarios.
Also, I’ve been experimenting with virtual sets for my videos…so you’ll see a few different ones. I’m just trying to be productive and learn new things during this stay at home period.
