I'm not hearing it, Ronald. In fact, both your audio and video quality are terrific -- better than 99.99% of the stuff I see on YouTube.
I'm not hearing a hiss at all.

I also could not hear the hiss, but am on my laptop, and not on the workstation.
Noise Reduction CAN certainly introduce a "hallow sound," and there is often a very fine balance between noise removal and distortion.
Though it was written more for problems, like hum and wind, there is a program rec. in this ARTICLE. It has amazed me, and especially for a rather cheap program. I have some very sophisticated DAW programs, but this little guy has been wonderful - Magix Audio Cleaner. Links in that article.
Hi both of you. Thanks for your replies!
I think I found a solution. First, I've also uploaded a copy of two of the videos with the original sound and with the Noise Reduction effect removed, but the Denoiser (which was already in Premiere Elements since version 7) effect applied. The Denoiser did an excellent job of removing the extra noise that I hear.
Do you guys hear a different in the audio between these sets of three clips?

I think I'm happy with the Denoiser effect cleanup. Whew! I'm still going to reset the baseline levels of both my Sennheiser transmitter and receiver to see if I can get cleaner sound from them into the camera.
PS: Thanks for the link and the suggestion to try the Magix software Bill, I am curious to get that.
PPS: Thanks for your reply as well Steve. I now own three of your books (well, technically 2, as Muvipix.com Guide to Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 9 is two in one - still reading the photoshop part).
