General Introduction

The Saramonic Blink500 is an incredibly lightweight, ultracompact, and easy-to-use 2-person wireless microphone system for DSLR, Mirrorless, and Video cameras, or mobile devices that delivers detailed, broadcast-quality sound. The system series is comprised of three different receivers. The RX receiver has a 3.5mm output and includes TRS and TRRS output cables, allowing it to work with any device with a 3.5mm audio input. The RXDi receiver has MFi Certified Lightning output and is designed for Apple iOS devices.

ATheRXUC receiver has a USB-C output and is designed for devices with a USB-C port, including Android smartphones and tablets. The clip-on transmitter has a great-sounding built-in mic and is small and light enough to clip to shirts and clothing, or you can use it as a traditional belt pack transmitter with the included SR-M1 professional Lavalier microphone. No technical knowledge of audio is required to operate. The Blink500 system operates on the interference-free 2.4GHz spectrum and automatically hops to free channels to avoid static noise and audio dropouts.

There are six kits available in the Blink500 series
