The Best wireless microphones you can buy today
Rode came out on top for the best overall wireless microphone kit with the Rode Wireless Go II. Its recording quality, range, and completeness of its kit allow content creators to record excellent audio across multiple platforms with ease. We loved being able to ditch our DSLP, connect the Wireless Go II to our smartphones, and create 4K footage with professional-level audio.
DJI wasn’t far behind after snagging an Editor’s Choice in our recent review of the simply named DJI Mic, while Razer and Movo found their way onto our list thanks to a blend of capability and affordability.
Here’s a closer look at the best wireless microphones available today.
You’re winning when you combine ultra-lightweight stylish design with excellent engineering, pro-level audio recording quality, 650-foot recording distance, and excellent free software for under $300. With the two mic transmitters included in the box, it’s a bargain that’s hard to beat for any content creator.
The Wireless Go II gives you the option to record directly to a camera or smartphone or take advantage of the onboard storage. If you’re looking to purchase a wireless mic system for filming your content on the go, the Wireless Go II is one of the best options available for amateurs all the way up to professionals.

The DJI Mic is one of the best wireless mic systems I’ve used. I know you want to know my ultimate decision between it and the Rode Wireless Go II, but honestly, it all comes down to what you need and what you value most. The DJI Mic produces excellent recordings. Its battery life, thanks to the charging case, is outstanding and worth the $30 price bump versus the Rode if you have it in your budget.
The user-friendly touchscreen and UI are good, too, but require a small learning curve. In most cases, I found the audio near the quality of the Rode Wireless Go II, but it required more fine-tuning. So, in the end, it’s really a toss-up and a matter of preference on the few differentiating factors. If you have the funds, and you want to record pro-level audio on the go, the DJI Mic is one of the two best systems available, and I absolutely recommend it.

If you’re looking for a solid option to just clip on and stream on the move, the Razer Seiren BT is a damn good option that won’t break your bank account at just $99. For the best recordings, try a semi-quiet spot and just go nuts; you will get quality audio with no hassle.
Overall, the Razer Seiren BT is a good buy. It’s sturdy (although Razer has yet to state its IP water and dust resistance ratings), it records quality audio, it’s lightweight, easy to use, and worth every penny.

No, you didn’t accidentally scroll back to the top, the Rode Wireless Go II is also available as a single transmitter. Offering the same ultra-compact form factor and an unmatched feature set as the original, but with just one transmitter instead of two, it’s the ultimate wireless microphone for solo content creators. The receiver in the single set and identical to its dual-channel sibling, meaning an additional transmitter can easily be paired for dual-channel recording. You get all the same features and range for just $187.
With Movo’s WMX-1 2.4GHz wireless mic kit (opens in new tab), you will get a complete kit with everything you need to connect the wireless mic system to a DSLR, computer, or smartphone, for $59. The kit has cables for all these connections and a quality lavalier microphone. You get 200 feet of range between the transmitter and receiver, which is more than enough for most content creators.
This versatility and price point is why the Movo WMX-1 makes our list, as it’s a great affordable option for beginning content creators to have in the kit. The one major flaw for some may be the need to carry AAA batteries, which can add weight to your kit. However, if you are just getting started and can’t afford one of the pricier kits on our list then this is an excellent option.
