Two other issues with Williams, there are cheaply constructed and the claim
has been made that they are programmed to be slightly off signal so the work
ok with other WS equipment but the quality degrades when trying to use them
with other brands. Based on the FCC requirements for this spectrum all the
FM wireless equipment should be interchangeable.

Over time have used Phonic Ear, Comtek and Williams Sound. Have had good
luck with all. Obviously the cost of the Williams make them a value. The
only negative comments if received from students had to do with the quality
of sound in the Williams units - "tinny". Had one student that went without
rather than use it. One recommendation is to buy a few of each.
