If you want an extremely small, feather-weight wireless microphone system that delivers broadcast-quality sound to use with Apple devices such as iPhone or iPad, with the ability to handle two wireless transmitters, nothing is capable of doing this except for the Saramonic Blink 500. This kit comes with a single clip-on wireless transmitter with a built-in mic, a professional lavalier microphone and a battery-free USB-C receiver which extremely lightweight, space efficient and works perfectly when used in handheld gimbals. You can put a mic on one person, but if you ever need to put mics on two 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 visually discreet miking solution.

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. You just turn it on, and it works. But 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 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 cable, and the USB-C ports can be used to power or recharge the unit in the field with portable USB battery packs. The receiver plugs into the device's USB-C port and draws its power from there.  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.

An ideal wireless system.
Portable, compact wireless microphone systems are completely essential tools for anyone who shoots video, 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 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. It's small enough to tuck away into any briefcase or backpack or even your pocket, so you can effortlessly take it with you everywhere you go. The Blink 500 B5 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. Plus, the Blink 500 series is an evolving system of products that will soon be expanding, giving users even more options and versatility.
