Saramonic Blink 500 ProX RXUC USB-C Receiver

General Introduction

The Saramonic Blink500 ProX is an incredibly lightweight, ultracompact, and easy-to-use wireless microphone system for up to 2 people. The microphone delivers exceptional, broadcast-quality sound to smartphones, tablets, computers, DSLRs, camcorders, recorders, and other audio/video recording devices. It features automatic pairing, low latency, and up to 100 meters of operating range. Blink500 ProX is ideal for instrument recording, live streaming, vlogging, mobile journalism, and more.

The Blink500 ProX TX clip-on transmitter has a great-sounding built-in omnidirectional microphone 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 Lavalier microphone. The Blink500 ProX RX also features a much-desired selectable Mono / Stereo output setting when using a second transmitter, giving you the ability to record each mic to separate channels of the camera’s and recorder’s stereo audio inputs.

The transmitter and receiver deliver a remarkable 10 hours of run time on a single charge. The supplied charging case allows you to charge the transmitter and receiver anywhere and can be recharged or powered via the USB-C DC 5V port. No technical knowledge of audio is required to operate, with no complicated menus or settings. The Blink500 ProX system operates on the 2.4GHz spectrum and automatically hops to free channels to avoid static noise and audio dropouts.
