Trusted Customer6th Nov 2023

Poor manufacturing of the XLR socket (cables don't lock on one of the pair) and very little support regarding this from UA customer support, even though they are aware of the manufacturing issue re complaints on their own website and the UA forum. Andertons very kindly let me check all of their stock but all the SP-1 mic pairs mics had the same issue. Such a shame.
