The Saramonic Blink 500 B5 is an incredibly 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, tablets, and computers. The transmitter is small enough to clip directly to shirt collars and the RXUC receiver is so lightweight and unobtrusive that it can easily be used in handheld gimbals and the receiver is even capable of accepting the signal from two microphones if you add another Blink 500 TX transmitter (sold separately).
The Blink 500 B5 is compact and lightweight, yet it delivers crystal-clear sound. 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 visually discreet miking solution. The sleek, featherweight RXDi receiver plugs directly into the Lightning port of your Apple device and doesn't require any batteries or charging to operate. There are no controls to fuss with, either. You just plug it in, and it works.
Even though there are no 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 with the Blink 500, letting you concentrate on storytelling and getting a great shot.
Blink 500 transmitters have easy-to-use gain buttons to raise or lower the levels at the touch of a button, and an intelligent LED display shows you where they're set. The transmitter's internal Lithium battery gets 5 hours of life from a charge with the included charging cables, and the USB-C port can be used to power or recharge the transmitter 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.
