Any company that made and marketed devices like this deserves to suffer.
https://www.amazon.com/Channel-Wireless-Microphone-System-Microphones/dp/B005BSOW82/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
So many school teachers and small theaters got scammed by this system.
-crosstalk, horrible reception, noisy, bad squelching and no way to control but by the front panel (single mix output) -which because of the non-existent range, was usually sitting on the stage.

I had an act bring that system to a gig.  Oy freakin' veh.  Where I decided the 'pile' was rack mounted..  That way you can't step in it ;)

I think the gears may still be grinding, since I'm pretty sure at least some of the models they were fined for are still listed for sale on their website...

Noticed that! So brazen... perhaps it is a sign of the times, like maybe it is worth it to keep selling these things and a 600K fine is just part of the cost of doing business. Like Craig, I want them to suffer. Selling this garbage is definitely harming consumers and causing issues for other operators, too.

Somehow I think in this particular situation, $600k plus lots of fairly high priced lawyer fees, based on their attorneys of record responses, is more than the net profit on this stuff over12+ years of sales. But I could be wrong . . .

No kidding; looks like Amazon is still selling one of the ones that operates in the VHF Airband...

Russ, that kind of assumes that the Pyle is not transmitting on some random, unpredictable frequency...  :o

Excrement posing as a wireless mic system...

Spectrum analyser now free with all new purchases of Pyle Pro wireless equipment, as it's the only way to know what the transmitting frequency is!

I disagree; in my mind, "interfering with air traffic control" is the definition of "some random, unpredictable frequency". :P
