My son is thinking of going wireless.  Can anyone direct me to a reasonable priced model to test the waters.  I don't think it would be wise to go too cheap and cross talk from cell phones and other electronics may be an issue, but I was hoping for some option to start the research process.  I know nothing about these.

Thank you,

The Line 6 X2 XDS-PLUS is an excellent system.  Very clean.  Not too expensive, as these things go.  Hard on batteries, but otherwise a very solid performer.

What do you consider "not too expensive"? Are there others using wireless, or is there any wireless mics/monitors/etc being used by others/sound board/etc? Getting something compatable should be considered. Our sound guys use Shure, but won't use anything less than the SLX systems. Shure makes a PGX, and one under that, but they won't even look at them. If the width of the band does not allow for reproduction of the range, you shoot yourself in the foot when the tone suffers.

The Line 6 X2 XDS-PLUS is on MF for $279.  Friends of mine say they have found it cheaper.  I bought mine used.  As far as i can tell it sounds every bit as good as the $1000+ Sennheiser unit it replaced.  There's only two of us in the band using them, but there's no interference so far - and I don't see why everybody in the band ('cept the drummer and the keyboardist) couldn't use one.
