NO BELT PACK. The E-Mic Mini-Tx is specifically designed and built for fitness-up to 20 classes per week. The weak spots in other headset transmitters mic systems have been corrected in the Mini-Tx design. The MT-U8 transmitter uses a single SEALED on/off switch, marine-grade coated circuit board, and O-ring seals for maximum sweat resistance. 8 channel selectable for those cities that have crowded airwaves or for facilities that want to have a single headset-transmitter as a spare for multiple systems.
The simplified, clean Mini-Tx design takes a beating and keeps on delivering. Over three years in development, Fitness Audio got this NO BODY-PACK system right. Check out the features of this next-generation cableless mic system below:
I am a fitness instructor and teach 6 classes per week and I have been using this product for 6 months. I'm very involved when it comes to my classes, most of the time coaching, doing the moves of the class, and showing modifications to my students. I didn't want to have to fuss with wires and a hip-positioned transmitter. This simple system with e-mic was probably the best investment I made with my fitness career! Students can hear me loud and clear, and the mic never falls off or cuts out! I also use the extra sweat-protector accessory to protect the transmitter and haven't had any issues there. Just a couple of things that probably could be improved: I love that this takes normal AAA batteries, but I think the battery life is quite short: it's marketed as 5-hours-per-battery, but I usually get about 4.5. I don't like to change the battery mid-class, so I'm usually changing my battery every 4 classes. Slightly annoying, but definitely not as annoying as having to remember to keep it charged! Also, the mic was quite tight at first on my head; it took a bit of time for it to stretch to my head size, but that's probably to ensure that it fits custom to every person using it. Overall, great product, I have no regrets! Buying the e-mic *is* worth the extra investment!
