What We Tested

Diversity

By diversity, we mean the microphone’s ability to combat dropouts. Since there will always be indirect waves in your filming environment, you need a good wireless microphone to combat these interruptions and give you a clear audio output. Again, some of the microphones in this list have dual antennas to allow you to receive different inputs in a single transmitter. A good mic also has an automatic switch to detect and adjust to receiving the strongest signal automatically. A diverse microphone can also help you avoid noisy reception and can help you avoid worrying about data loss.

Frequency Agility

The best wireless microphones have high-frequency agility. They can help you enjoy a wide array of frequency paths to suit your interests. Again, wireless microphones with agile frequencies can enable you to use different wireless devices in an area with many competing signals. Frequency agility also enhances smooth transmissions and reception. It lessens intermodulation. Finding a frequency-agile microphone with an automatic frequency selection can be more accurate.

Reliability

The best wireless microphones shouldn’t be overly exaggerated in terms of their prices. Again, they have low static, low dropout, and low-noise effects. Likewise, high-quality microphones also have long uninterrupted hours of power supply to help you save time.
