Summary: I consider myself a fairly proficient audio enthusiast. I spend alot of money on home theater and recording studio gear, all of which is top of the line. I also am an avid Rockband player. I have a pretty precise ear that comes from many hours of singing, playing instruments and tweaking sound in my studio with professional quality equipment. I realize that Rockband is a game and as such I have lower expectations.
Summary: (used only with rock band 2 on xbox 360) My rock band factory mic broke so I thought this was a good upgrade option. However, this is what I found: - Wouldnt sync properly to the song--there was always a slight delay no matter what i did - had a tinny, "hollow" sound. noticably worse that the factory mic - overly sensitive and would capture too many ambient sounds - minor point: even though the mic itself is wireless, you still need to plug in a usb "base station" to the...
Summary: I've had two of these microphones and, after far too many tech support calls to Logitech to try and fix the horrible latency, this is what they told me: "We haven't gotten a chance to test a wireless Vantage on The Beatles Rockband game."

Summary: This review is not a critique of the Logitech mike, since I have not even received the item yet. Rather this is a critique of Amazon itself. I purchased this item on a Wednesday and it shipped on a Friday (not bad). I paid $49.97. On Sunday I logged in to Amazon to see the status of my order. I find that the price has been dropped to $37.49.
