XLR microphones or wireless microphones

Are there any advantages of either in terms of audio quality or noise cancellation? I know that XLR does a better job with noise compared to standard 3/8" plug-in mics but when compared to wireless (assuming there is no RF in the area competing with the wireless trasmission and assuming that a good wireless system is used) does XLR still have that advantage?

Anyone? I just want to know if a wireless mic of good quality is less immune to noise than a wired 3/8" plugin microphone or is an XLR mic still a better way to go?

It depends on your application. You can get good sound with an inexpensive lav mic such as http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...alier_Mic.html

You could have 1/8" or XLR with wired or wireless mics as you would still need to plug it into a recording device. The advantage of XLR is less if you are not running long cables from mic to recorder or buying high end pro equipment.

This forum seems to be mostly focused on eyeballs not eardrums; for more audio talk, you can try http://www.avsforum.com/forum/91-aud...ry-setup-chat/
