Good time for this post to pop up.
I'm in the market for a new headset mic and the receiver/transmitter thingummy to plug in to (hope I'm not getting too technical here:)).
Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Spoke to someone at shure yesterday, but they got way too technical and I got somewhat confused, it doesn't take much!
Sometime in the future I also want to get a new speaker, the one I have at the moment is great but its huge and a pain to lug around. I worked with someone recently who had this fantastic long thin one, speaker that is, and it was fantastic. Of course I forgot to get details. Again, recommendations would be appreciated.

Depends on how much you want to spend of course.

I've been really happy with my Samson Concert 88 Earset mic and it was surprisingly inexpensive. I've never had any issues with it and the sounds is just fine.

Just a little important distinction - there are headset mics and earset mics. The earset mics are thinner and flesh colored and are much less visible than the headset as they just wrap around the ear. Headset mics are bigger, have a larger mic and wrap around the whole head.

I strongly suggest an earset over a headset as it's much less obtrusive (and it doesn't mess up your hair).
