deal for content creators, videographers, journalists, vloggers, podcasters, and streamers, the Saramonic Blink500 Pro B8 is a lightweight, ultracompact, and easy-to-use digital wireless microphone system that offers a complete, cost-effective solution for recording up to four people talking simultaneously. The kit comprises four Blink500 Pro TXS clip-on transmitters with built-in microphones and one Blink500 Pro 4RX clip-on receiver. The microphones deliver clear-sounding dialog, interviews, and speech directly to a mirrorless/DSLR camera, computer, recorder, or smartphone/tablet equipped with a headphone jack.
The Blink500 Pro B8 provides out-of-the-box operability for content creators. The components are paired at the factory, so you can start working immediately. The easy-to-read OLED screen on the receiver makes any necessary adjustments quick and intuitive. The system automatically hops to free channels to avoid static noise and dropouts, delivering reliable wireless audio at a distance up to 164′. Built-in rechargeable batteries provide up to 4 hours of operation for the transmitters and 8 hours for the receiver. Provided are a 3.5mm TRRS cable for connecting to a smartphone/tablet and a 3.5mm TRS cable for use with cameras and other 3.5mm-input devices. 4-channel audio output is supported with an optional cable (available separately).
- Each transmitter has a built-in microphone with an omnidirectional pickup pattern that captures speech evenly.
- The transmitters are small and light enough to clip to shirts and clothing, and feature gain and mute controls, allowing you to fully manage your recording at any time.
- A furry windscreen is included to protect the built-in mic from wind noise when shooting outdoors.
