I think the moral of this thread is that they are BOTH good. Get which one is cheapest or which one you think looks the best. :)

I can't say which is the best because I haven't tried the Senheisser, I went for the Sony UWP-V1 because both transmitter and receiver had metal enclosures and generally seemed sturdier. I've been really happy with mine but like other posters have said, I'm sure they both work well.

We've got around 8 Senny G2 500 kits in rental. Never a problem, built like tanks. The standard mic that comes with the kit is very pedestrian. We use the MKE 2-EW gold mics. Those mics are very good and almost impossible to destroy as they have Kevlar reinforced cable. Certainly not cheap kit. If you don't need the ability to select banks of frequencies for anywhere on the planet then the 300 series saves you a bit of money. For many the 100 series with the MKE 2-EW mic is a good choice.
The new G3 series drops the 500 option. Darn pity really as you're stuck with a country specific unit I believe.
As others have said though both the Sony and the Senny units seem to perform well. The choice of a good mic is probably more important than choosing between the two manufacturers. I guess my gut feeling is to buy kit from companies that specialise in the product.

So, the new Sonys shouldn't have any problems now that the analog to digital switch has happened?
