Hands-on: SingStar Wireless Microphones
Setting up the wireless mics is extremely straightforward, done so by simply plugging the wireless microphone receiver (pictured above) into one of the console’s USB ports, inserting the two supplied AA batteries into each microphone and turning them both on via a sliding power button. Each time they’re turned on the microphones instantly pair with the receiver via a Bluetooth connection, without any need to manually synch them.
A green LED on the receiver illuminates to confirm that the unit is receiving power from the console, while green LEDs on each of the microphones indicate that they’re connected. If one’s out of range, a red LED lights on the microphone in question.
That’s all there is to it. There’s no messing about with menu screens or faffing about with synchronisation buttons (though there is such a button on the receiver, presumably to connect replacement – or potentially, additional – microphones). It’s so simple even your mum could do it, which knowing SingStar, she probably will.
