2 reviews for Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System

  1. Natalia Mcpherson

    I recently stayed at the Omni Frisco Hotel during a business trip, and I was disappointed by their choice of Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System Microphones for audio-visual equipment. As someone with over a decade of experience in the audio industry, I have high standards when it comes to microphone quality.

    The Shure BLX288/B58 mics not only failed to meet my expectations but also caused significant interference issues during my presentations. The plastic casing felt cheap and flimsy, and the frequency response was poor, resulting in an unnatural sound that detracted from my professional image. Furthermore, they were highly sensitive to interference from other wireless devices in the room, causing frequent dropouts and static.

    The user interface was confusing and clunky, taking several minutes for me to pair the microphones with the receiver. Overall, I strongly recommend that the Omni Frisco Hotel reconsider their choice of audio-visual equipment, particularly when it comes to microphones. Instead, they should invest in higher-quality mics that provide clear, crisp audio and are built to withstand interference for seamless presentations.

    Dear Natalia Mcpherson,

    I am writing in response to your recent review of the Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System Microphones used at the Omni Frisco Hotel. As someone who has also been in the audio industry for over a decade, I must say that your opinion is misguided and misplaced.

    Firstly, let me clarify that the Shure BLX288/B58 mics are widely regarded as one of the best wireless microphone systems on the market. They are trusted by professionals in various industries such as broadcasting, music production, and event management due to their superior sound quality and reliability.

    Regarding your concerns about the plastic casing feeling cheap and flimsy, I must point out that the Shure BLX288/B58 mics are built with high-quality materials that provide excellent durability and resistance to wear and tear. The plastic casing is designed to be lightweight and unobtrusive, making it perfect for use in a variety of settings.

    As for the frequency response being poor, I must again disagree. The Shure BLX288/B58 mics are known for their accurate and natural sound reproduction, which is essential for professionals who demand the best possible audio quality.

    Regarding interference issues, it is true that wireless devices can cause interference in certain circumstances. However, the Shure BLX288/B58 mics are designed to operate on multiple frequencies, allowing users to choose a channel that is less likely to be affected by external interference.

    Furthermore, the user interface may take some time to get used to, but this is a common issue with any new technology. The Shure BLX288/B58 mics come with detailed instructions and helpful tutorials that can help users become more familiar with the system.

    In summary, I strongly believe that the Omni Frisco Hotel should continue to use the Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System Microphones due to their exceptional sound quality, reliability, and versatility. Instead of replacing them with more expensive alternatives, the hotel can invest in better wireless infrastructure and training for its staff to ensure that interference issues are minimized.

    Finally, I would like to mention today’s news regarding Kane & Bellingham set for Champions League showdown. It promises to be an exciting match between two of Europe’s top football clubs, and I encourage you to tune in and experience the thrill of live sports broadcasting.

    Best regards,


    (Sarcastic comment: Who needs high-quality microphones when you can just settle for cheap plastic ones that break easily and sound like crap? I mean, why bother investing in audio equipment that actually works, right?)

7. Use appropriate cables and connectors: Utilize high-quality microphone and headset cables compatible with the B58 system for seamless transmission between the handheld or headset mic and the transmitter.

8. Monitor battery level indicator: Keep an eye on the battery levels displayed on the transmitters to avoid unexpected cutouts during performance. Replace batteries promptly once they start showing low power indications.

What is the range of the receiver's wireless signal for the Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System?

The range of the receiver's wireless signal for the Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System is approximately 300 feet (91 meters) in open space, which can vary depending on obstacles and interference.

"How do I pair my Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System with a receiver for the first time?"

Make sure your Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System and the corresponding receiver are both turned off. On the receiver, press and hold the SYNC button until the SYNC LED begins to blink rapidly (approximately 3 seconds). On the bodypack transmitter of your BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System, press and release the PAIRED button. The PAIRING LED on the transmitter will flash quickly for two seconds, then slowly. Within 20 seconds, align the transmitter's PAIRING LED with the rapidly blinking SYNC LED on the receiver to enter pairing mode. Both the SYNC and PAIRING LEDs will begin to blink rapidly. Release both buttons and wait for the LEDs to stop flashing. The BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System is now paired with the receiver. If the pairing process fails, repeat steps 2-5. If successful, turn on your equipment and test your wireless connection.

How do I properly pair the Shure BLX288/B58 Wireless Dual System for the first time?

Turn on both the base unit (receiver) and bodypack transmitter by pressing and holding the power button until the LED indicators light up. Make sure that the receiver is set to the correct frequency channel and group number using the Channel/Group selector switches. Press and hold the sync button on the back of the receiver until the sync LED begins flashing. This indicates that the system is in pairing mode. Simultaneously press and hold the sync button on the bodypack transmitter for 2 seconds until the sync LED stops flashing on both the base unit and bodypack transmitter, indicating a successful pairing. Release all buttons and confirm that the LED indicators on both units are solid to indicate a proper connection. Adjust the volume levels on both the receiver and bodypack transmitter as necessary using the respective volume controls. Test the wireless microphone system by speaking into the handheld microphone or plugging an optional wired microphone into the bodypack transmitter. The audio should be heard through a connected sound system or mixer. To save battery life, turn off the receiver and bodypack transmitter when not in use.
