As a performer or educator, the last thing you want is a series of microphone wires limiting your movement. Wireless headset microphones are designed to fit comfortably around your head while setting your hands free to perform other activities concurrently. Whether you need them for energetic or laid back presentations, here are the best wireless headset microphones to enchant your audience without entangling yourself.

The system is a perfect blend of simple setup, stunning audio transmission, and simple operation.

Own the stage
Performers and multi-instrument players will get a kick out of the Shure SM35-TQG wireless headset. The headset's cardioid polar pattern eliminates signal bleed or feedback, making useful behind floor monitors and on big stages. The minimalist lightweight and low-profile design enable comfort for prolonged performances. It's only compatible with SHURE bodypacks or a TA4F connector.
A perfect replacement
The Shure PGA31 microphone headset comes with a TA4F 4-pin connector for seamless connection to Shure bodypack transmitters. As such, it's a budget-friendly way of making your Shure wireless system complete again incase you have a broken headset. It's carefully designed with a unidirectional polar pattern and a noise-canceling feature that improves the audio quality for active performers and speakers.
With a sturdy and lightweight frame, the AKG C520 headset has an adjustable headband for unrivaled comfort and freedom of movement. If you already own an AKG wireless bodypack transmitter or a C520 with a standard XLR connector, this is a perfect headset microphone. Its cardioid polar pattern cancels undesired background noise, while the moisture shield protects moisture from getting into the transducer element.
