Regardlessif wire or wireless, the school of hard knocks has taught me to always monitor audio. Low voltage batteries in wireless (high quality batteries after an 8 hour shoot) and connections/connectors in wire can and do both give problems.Monitoringfor external(road traffic) and internalsound (air conditioners) can avoid ruining an otherwisegreatrecording. In educational video shoots I opt for the lapel/wireless on the basis that the talent has the freedom to turn in a 360 degree circle and move anywhere on a set whilst maintainingconsistent audio level and quality. I have found the Sony UWP-C1 wireless both rugged and reliable.
