Topic: Wireless mics...
I want a dual set, good quality, decent sound, and not so extremely sensitive to feedback.
I need to go for a high quality brand like Shure, I am looking at the PG58, with BLX288 reciever.

AKG and Sennheiser are also good to look at.
Get something with external or even remote mount antennas. Dual antennas for diversity as well.
Make sure the frequency range is legal in your area. There have been a lot of changes recently in the USA with allowable frequencies. This has made mics that are only a few years old Illegal. My older Shure is subject to cell phone interference due to the radio spectrum it used being moved to cellular..

I should also point out the use of those mics will be only for talks during wedding cermonies and not for 'DJ' use so to say.
That's why I was looking at the entry point PG58 for simplicity and a cost effective solution that does not cost a fortune if dropped and so on..
As long as it can take 30-40 foot of distance at a decent sound quality level and being of a 'known' good brand would be enough.
I will look at your options, even if I see their price ranges begins at twice the PG58 ones...

It was more about the dual receiving external antennas. The diversity reviving helps to prevent dropouts due to interference and line of site issues.

We use KAM KWM 1940 mics - exactly for the cost reason,
We get a decent sound out of them and they've got a good range, and feel quite solid
but they're cheap enough that I can use them for pub karaoke twice a week (and the battery life is quite good)

The Kam 1940's were replaced by a mk2 version which then transformed into the above.
I use the above branded as Kam along with more expensive Trantec radio microphones. Quality control on the above may not be that good and I had minor problems..a little glue was required and the power supply does not inspire confidence. But..they perform extremely well !

No Kam drop outs in use and a range I suspect that is in excess of 50m ! That's without line of sight.
The sound quality is prefered by many to a SM58 wired !
I like my SM58's.
It really is a case of what suites your voice.
The Sennheiser (Trantec) freeports are excellent at around £150.
Note no spell checker..whatever.

Myself ain't a big user of mics actually. I find it very hard to say something useful during a gig.
(Anouncements of missing wallets and cellphones is common though)
So I found out the entry level Shure PG58 with its reciever will be a enough for me, and the price is also totally ok at 190 USD.
