To be honest all the reasonably priced ones are pretty crap and have various problems.
You get what you pay for.

We use Axiwi which are nt cheap. but also arent mega expensive.
They work well for us, but I know some people don't like them. The newest version is much better than the older ones.

We use Ref Audio Pro.

I've been using them for close to 10 years now, and they're fantastic pieces of kit. I would also add - great customer service.

Used the Axiwi 320 (older ones I think) twice over the weekend, two different venues, once as AR and once as Ref and worked absolutely perfectly baring a bit of static as ref, whereas the 350 (supposedly better range and wider frequency) I got to use as fourth official was frustrating, I was getting a lot of choppy audio which I could work through for what I needed but had to give up using push to talk as the To3 couldn't hear me - this was the same venue that I was using the 320's at, but I was on the far, far noisier side of the pitch so that may have been the issue.

On the positive both sets stayed connected as I know we've had to power cycle the 320's frequently when they disconnect in the past - I suspect a lot of variables.

Adjacent to this thread - what do y'all wear under your jerseys when comm'd up? The only thing I've worn is something like this, which worked well, but am unaware of other options.

I usually wear heat gear because of the conditions here, and put a carry vest on over that.
My oppo wears a singlet.
