Saramonic Blink 500 B5 Digital Wireless 2.4 GHz Omni Lavalier Microphone System - USB Type-C Devices

The Saramonic Blink 500 B5 is an extremely compact, lightweight, and professional sounding wireless microphone system that was made to be used with mobile devices that have USB-C ports, like Android smartphones or tablets, computers, and more. This kit comes with a single wireless transmitter with a built-in mic, a professional clip-on lavalier microphone, and a dual-channel receiver that's so lightweight and unobtrusive it can easily be used in handheld gimbals. You can put a mic on 1 person, but if you ever need to put mics on 2 people, you can simply add a second wireless transmitter (sold separately) and it will work perfectly with the included dual receiver.

Tiny body, huge sound.

The Blink 500 B5 is impossibly compact and lightweight, yet it delivers crystal-clear professional sound quality. The versatile transmitter features an excellent sounding built-in microphone that captures voices perfectly. Small enough to clip to a shirt or slide into a pocket and versatile enough to set on a table or podium, or even used handheld. It also operates as a traditional bodypack transmitter with the included SR-M1 professional omnidirectional clip-on lavalier microphone, providing an even more professional and inconspicuous miking solution. The RXUC receiver plugs directly into the USB-C port of your device and doesn't require any batteries or charging to operate. It doesn't have any controls to fuss with, either. You just plug it in, and it works. It's compatible with a wide range of products that have USB-C ports, from Android smartphones and tablets to modern Apple Mac computers and Windows PCs, to Chromebooks and even the 2018 iPad Pro tablets.

So advanced, it's effortless.

Some wireless microphone systems are complicated to operate and require detailed knowledge of their menus and settings, but the Blink 500 B5 is so technically advanced that it couldn't be easier to use. Even though there are very few controls to adjust, behind the scenes the Blink 500 is doing a lot to ensure excellent performance. It operates on the interference-free 2.4GHz spectrum, and automatically hops channels to avoid static noise and audio dropouts. Pairing the transmitter to the receiver is simple, and all of the complicated aspects of using wireless microphones happen seamlessly in the background, letting you concentrate on storytelling and getting a great shot.

Perfect levels and power.

One of the tricky aspects of capturing sound for video is controlling the audio levels. Some people speak very loudly, while others speak very softly. That's why the Blink 500 transmitter has easy-to-use gain buttons to raise or lower the levels, and an intelligent LED display shows you where they're set. Its internal Lithium battery gets 5 hours of life from a charge, and its USB-C charging port can be used to power or recharge it in the field with portable USB battery packs. The 10-milliwatt power of the transmitter gives you an impressive range of 98 feet (30 meters) with obstacles, and 164 feet (50 meters) in open spaces.

Handheld gimbal, meet wireless sound.

Handheld gimbals have the amazing ability to deliver cinematically smooth video footage that makes it feel like the camera is floating, but one area where they suffer is audio. It's simply too difficult to attach external microphones or wireless receivers without throwing off the balance of the device. The RXUC included in your Blink 500 B5 kit changes this story. It's small and lightweight enough to remain mounted to your smartphone and won't interfere with the motors or arm of your gimbal. You can finally capture perfect sound with your mobile gimbal footage, and if you add a second Blink 500 transmitter (sold separately) you can easily put mics on two people.

An ideal wireless system.

Even if you shoot video with a mobile phone or tablet, wireless microphones are still completely essential tools for video production, and the fact that the Blink 500 is one of the smallest and most lightweight systems you can get yet it still delivers professional quality sound makes it ideal for filmmakers, journalists, vloggers, YouTube creators, corporate video producers, or any content creator that needs an incredibly easy-to-use wireless system that won't slow them down. This system is perfect for people who only need one wireless mic right now but may need the option to expand and use two in the future. If you shoot video with a mobile device and a handheld gimbal, this is the best solution available for perfect sound from wireless transmitters. It's small enough to tuck away in a small pocket, so you can effortlessly bring it with you everywhere you go. Plus, the Blink 500 series is an evolving system of products that will soon be expanding, giving users even more options and versatility.
