Today it is not rare for us to see vloggers who create content about makeup, travel, lifestyle, food, education, health, and almost everything, using up-to-date recording equipment, including wireless microphones. Vlogs connect people from different areas and bring opportunities like brand marketing cooperation and YouTube advertising to vloggers. Led by young people and millennials, vlogs have become the most effective medium to increase brand awareness.
Maono recently launched a new wireless microphone system. The Maono WM820 2-person wireless microphone offers high-quality equipment for vloggers. Firstly, it’s compact and lightweight. Besides, it operates on the widely available 2.4GHz frequency technology with an automatic pairing of devices. Shooting outdoors may make you worry about the sound quality, but you will be delighted to discover the system can reach up to 50m (164ft) in range. The transmitters and receiver can last for 6 hours after a full charge. Moreover, you can monitor recordings in real-time on the receiver unit.
What’s in the Box
The Maono WM820 wireless mic system comes with two units of transmitters so that you can record the voices of two people separately. Both transmitters send the recorded audio to a single receiver unit. Both transmitters have built-in microphones, but the package includes two lav microphones which you can connect to each transmitter for better audio quality and more use cases.
In addition to the transmitters and receiver, Maono provides three cables (TRS-TRS*1, TRS-TRRS*1, USB-A to USB-C 1-to-3 splitter cable*1), three fur windshields, and a pouch.
Clear and Natural Audio
Maono WM820 has two compact transmitters, both with a built-in omnidirectional polar pattern mic and an S/N ratio of 82dB, which are ideal for 2-person vlogging. Its MNCT noise-canceling technology and a professional audio chip deliver natural and clear audio in an outdoor shooting session. Most likely you will get a lot of sound disturbance and distortion out in the field. What’s more, Maono also gives you two lav mics with 3 fur windshields to minimize noise from wind and rustling clothes. In addition, the 22-step mic gain option in the receiver offers fine adjustment for easier post-editing. It is the only product in this class to offer this feature.
Connectivity and Range
The transmitters and receiver automatically pair up within two seconds. However, you need to press pairing buttons on the transmitters and receiver during the first use. With today’s vlogging involving recordings within a large area rather than a small static spot, you need a capable mic system. Maono WM820 offers up to a 50m transmission range in an open space, ideal for indoor and outdoor audio recording.
You can use the receiver’s 3.5mm headphone output to monitor live audio.
To summarize, Maono WM820 is an excellent choice for 2-person vlog recording for your YouTube, TikTok, and other platforms. At a price under $150, it offers an affordable and compact wireless mic system, featuring guaranteed clear and natural audio and stable transmission up to 50m. It is best for outdoor recordings and largely reduces background noise, such as noise of wind and moving cars. On top of that, it’s super easy to use and sync, so you can start recording right away with devices like smartphones, mirrorless cameras, and tablets.
