Singing drinking songs is a Russian folk tradition that survived with admirable tenacity into the age of high technology. And in the 90s, it also organically merged with entertainment from distant Japan – karaoke singing. So to this day, at feasts, someone does “Oh God, what a man” while looking at the TV. If you love to sing at the holidays, CHIP will tell you about such an interesting invention that you will forget which wireless microphone is best for karaoke.

How to choose a karaoke microphone for home?

First, let’s talk about the banal. Before you start looking for a microphone, decide how you generally prefer to sing. It will be difficult to find the perfect option if you don’t know what you are looking for at all.

For example, if you like to sing duets, you will need two microphones – or even several if you have a mini-choir with friends. Then it is better to buy several microphones cheaper. If everyone will sing in turn, it is better to invest in one, but a very good one. For example, in one that we will talk about soon.

How is a wireless karaoke microphone different from a regular one?

Usually the microphone is connected to the karaoke system via a 6.5 mm jack or 3.5 mini-jack connector. This is at best: many manufacturers of karaoke systems love exotic connectors.

Wireless microphones for karaoke are used to connect Bluetooth of different versions. As a rule, karaoke microphones without wires are of two types:

  • First, the wireless device may already be integrated into your karaoke systemif you bought it as a set. Then everything is simple with the choice: the most important parameter when choosing will be compatibility with the system – look for the same microphone that is included in the kit, for example, on AliExpress. Alternatively, there are wireless kits that connect to karaoke systems.
  • And secondly, there are standalone karaoke microphones. They do not need to be connected to anything – the exception is a portable Bluetooth speaker, a smartphone or any device that has the same “bluetooth”. Thus, you can sing karaoke wherever your heart desires – even when fishing, even in front of a crowd on the street. Moreover, they themselves can work as a speaker – just insert a USB flash drive with music. They also know how to improve your voice – built-in mixers allow you to change the upper and lower frequencies and remove noise. This is a relatively new product on the market – that’s what we will choose today. First, let’s show what they look like:

Models Wster it is easy to distinguish from a competitor in that the buttons are located on the handle. Yes, and the color range is more solid – black, white, dark red, gold.

Functionally, they differ little. The microphone is compatible with karaoke apps on Android and iOS. However, you can connect a microphone to your device not only using Bluetooth, but also via a microUSB cable. The functionality of the Wster WS16 mixers is absolutely identical to the Tuxun Q9, but, as already mentioned, the control buttons are placed on the handle – right under the thumb. In our opinion, it is much more convenient.

But what distinguishes the device is the enlarged speakers that can directly play music from the microSD card. And most importantly, colorful LED speaker lighting that will add to the holiday atmosphere and draw attention to you when you sing. You can, of course, disable it if you wish.

The microphone is equipped with a 1800 mAh battery, which is charged via USB. Here is an important thing to consider: the microphone is a condenser, so it picks up all sounds quite clearly. Therefore, when singing, it is better to keep it a little at a distance so that interference does not appear – for example, the sound of your breathing.


WSTER WS-1816 is a device that combines a Bluetooth vocal microphone and a universal backlit audio speaker.
