Broke after 3 months of home use
MC MC, 01.05.2020
Pros:
This is a very compact, easy to use unit. It's not feature heavy, but wireless units with numerous bells and whistles tend to cost several times this price.

I had no problems with the buffer that's built into the system altering my tone in a noticeable way.

The range is decent, and more than what most people will need. If you need more, you're playing big enough venues that you should already have a higher-end unit.

Cons:
It definitely cuts in and out during play. It tends to be brief, but it happens enough that I wouldn't want to gig with it.

The real dealbreaker for me, though, was that it stopped working after 3 months. I never left home with it, because I wouldn't play live with something that cuts in and out like this unit does. I live alone, so I know nothing happened to it. I used it one day, then put it away, and when I went back the next day to use it again, I couldn't get a signal. It's fully charged, lights flashing, transmitter / receiver are paired, but – no sound.

I've contacted Thomann; hopefully they can help.

Fantastic
TonyOr, 07.05.2021
I guess I have an abundance of riches and shouldn't complain, but I still do. I have a small home studio with half a dozen guitars, 3 amps, a multi-effects pedal and an audio interface for recording. I am fed up with trailing cables all over the room, tripping over them and having to coil them all up and put them away when I am done.

The Airborne almost completely solves the problem and my little studio is now clutter-free.

It just works! Choose guitar and an amp, plug the transmitter into one and the receiver into the other, turn them both on and off you go. It is fantastic to be free of cables.

The Airborne looks quite big compared to the Line6 or Boss equivalent but in practice it plugs conveniently into every piece of kit I own and does not get in the way whilst playing. The only thing that is less than perfect is when plugging it into my Tonemaster Deluxe, with the amp's control panel on the front, the Airborne has to be plugged in with its back panel facing out. It's a purely aesthetic problem.

I have had no problem connecting any piece of kit. The sound quality is the same as using a cable. I have two electro-acoustic guitars with pre-amps, and they both work fine. I don't know if they count as active pickups. The first time I used the Airborne I had a couple of glitches when playing, literally for a second or two each time, but have had nothing since. The wifi router is in studio and I have experienced no drop outs so far.

I can't comment on the battery life or charging time yet but the two-way USB charging cable is quite convenient. A docking station would have been nice but I can build a simple substitute - a block of wood with two holes in it.

I highly recommend the Airborne. It does everything I need and is a fraction of the price of the Line6 and Boss alternatives.

Great for a home studio environment
tomtomssi, 04.06.2019
I use this at my home studio between my guitars and amp heads.

The range is nice and it works even through walls. I usually play in a pretty small room next to a lot of gear and electronics but I have not noticed any interference.

The sound quality is clear and I have not noticed any difference compared to a regular cable.

The build quality is okay. This is not flimsy but its still plastic so I would not want to drop these on a hard surface. After a few months I started to hear some rattling inside like something had come loose but these still work.

The on/off switch could use a re-design. Its too similar to the channel switch and quite often I accidentally use the wrong switch.

The transmitter runs out of battery a lot faster than the receiver. The description tells you this has up to 6 hours of battery life but I don't feel like the transmitter can last for 6 hours of constant play.

Overall, this thing is great. It has given me a lot of mobility inside a rather small studio where cords can get tangled quite easily.

Freedom!!!
Panos!, 27.05.2021
Its amazing the sense of freedom with these! I'm new in the world of wireless guitar systems, and I feel truly liberated from the strains of cables! 'Til now I only use them at home, no rehearsals and of course no Live use because of Covid-19. But I will surely try them as soon as possible! Sometimes the sound has fluctuations, like hiccups (or tiny interruptions), specially when the home wifi is on, but changing a channel or two and the problem always disappears. The tone for me is great, and when I plug straight in the amp or on my pedalboard and play, I find it magnificent. But for a tone "purist" it may be a problem, cause when I A/B them with a quality cable, then I can very slightly hear but more importantly I can feel a small degredation of my tone. Is it enough to put me off? Not in a million years! Would I use them to record an important piece? No, never! Will I use them on my next rehearsals and - hopefully soon - try them also on a Live situation with my band? Definitely yes!
