Coming into the digital world, the newer 2.4 GHz wireless mic becomes more and more popular in filmmaking and vloger.
The following are some good-sale 2.4GHz wireless mics, let’s compare their differences.
Rode Wireless GO
The Rode Wireless GO measures just 1.7in x 1.8in x 0.7in in size and weigh 1.1 oz. It’s convenient for your taking outside.
Offering secure Series III 2.4 GHz digital transmission, the Wireless GO includes one transmitter and one receiver. You can mount the Wireless GO on your camera.
Courtesy of Rode’s optimized transmission algorithm, the Wireless GO provides a range of up to 70meters, and bolsters signal dependability to mitigate drop-outs in crowded short-range environments.
Both the transmitter and receiver have built in batteries that you can charge with the included USB-C cable. You can use the mic for 7 hours.
The Rode Wireless GO equips a pouch, 2 windshield, 2 USB-A to USB-C cable and a TRS cable. With the TRS cable, Rode Wireless GO can connect with your smartphone and camera.
Both 3.5mm TRS and TRRS output cables are included, so the SYNCO WAir-G1(A2) system will work perfectly with your camera and smartphones. You can achieve the real-time monitor through a 3.5mm TRS headphone jack.
With two output modes-mono / stereo, the entire recording system of WAir-G1(A2) restores your original sense of orientation and distribution. In mono mode, the sounds captured by each transmitter are combined into one audio track. When it is stereo, 2 sounds are separated to either left or right track, trying to emphasize the presence, layering, and transparency of sound.
To restore the subtle changes in sound, WAir-G1(A2) refines 180Hz optional low cut filtering out specific low frequency noises. And the 0-4 level receiver gain settings with adjustment range up to 8dB allow simple and effective optimization of signal levels.
WAir-G1(A2) equips 2 lavalier microphones, charging cable and a carry bag for outdoor shooting.
Saramonic Blink 500 B2
With a 3.5mm TRS to TRRS cable, Blink 500 B2 can work well with your smartphone and camera. Besides that, Blink 500 B2 provides two USB-C charging cable and two lavalier microphones.
Since the Blink 500 RXDi is a dual-channel receiver, it can simultaneously handle two Blink 500 TX wireless transmitters without the signal interference. It is suitable for more than one device you working in the same environment.
Within the 2.4 GHz spectrum, the Blink 500 boasts automatic channel hopping to mitigate noise and dropouts at a line-of-sight distance of up to 50 meters in open spaces.
The internal Lithium batteries get 5 hours of life from a charge with the included charging cables, and the USB-C ports can be used to power or recharge the units in the field with portable USB battery packs.

Comica BOOM X-D2 has many accessories: two 3.5mm mic audio input cable ,two wind muffs,one 3.5mm TRRS cable,one 3.5mm TRS cable,one USB-C charging cable, and one reset pin.
If your camera does not have a headphone jack, you can make the Real-Time monitor the sound from the receiver with the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The 2.G Hz system delivers reliable transmission with a clear sound at a distance up to 50 meters with the Auto frequency.
BOOM X-D2 offers you two switch of mono or stereo on the receiver to choose, which allows you to adjust each level individually later in post. (Please note that smartphone can not output stereo audio).
