Wireless Headset for Fitness DVD

Looking to create some fitness DVDs - the instructor will be conducting quite vigorous exercises (a 30 min 'insanity' drop dead at the end type affair).

I can sense the budget wont be huge - is there a cheap-ish (200) headset with cardioid pick up that I can wirelessly connect to a Sony EX3?

I have a Senhhesier wireless lapel mic bought with this kit - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...tag=mysp085-21

will any-ol headset with a lockable 3.5mm jack socket work? need it to be cardiod and not fall off whens shes thrusting and jiggling etc...
Thirty Four Minutes Dead - can't believe how amazing this book is! AWESOME!

I don't have a solid answer right now, but I am going to be back on a studio shoot for another fitness DVD on monday and will try to see what they are using. They've hired a guy for the day in the past that specifically handles audio, so i've never looked into it. Although this setup is used for large, high-end production videos so it may more than you're willing or able to spend.

They've always used over the ear microphones attached to a wireless receiver with the cable taped down the back of the neck. I am thinking part of the reason for using the over the ear is that a standard lapel might rub on the clothing and create lots of noise with excessive movement.

Something like this I believe was tied into a shure wireless system:

Might want to check out Countryman E6. Its a very professional mic and is almost invisible. They make them in a bunch of different options and include caps that adjust the sound. They might be able to get you one with the connector required for your wireless transmitter.

Looks to me like you need something like this:
...to go with the Senny body-worn G3 transmitter pack you already have.
