Samson targets mobile content creators with Go Mic Mobile

Samson has announced the availability of Go Mic Mobile, its new professional wireless microphone system that connects directly to smartphones without the need for cumbersome adaptors or interfaces.

The new wireless system turns a phone into a pro-level video camera capable of capturing high definition audio on-the-move, making it ideal for filmmaking, podcasting, vlogging, live streaming and YouTube production.

Go Mic Mobile captures audio via a compact, dual-channel receiver that mounts and connects directly to a smartphone or DSLR camera, allowing users to transmit and mix digital audio on two separate channels.

The receiver’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery offers up to thirteen hours of HD wireless operation without draining a smartphone’s battery. Go Mic Mobile plugs directly into both iOS and Android devices via the included Lightning and micro USB-C cables respectively. It also comes with a shoe mount adapter that easily attaches the dual-channel receiver to a DSLR camera or professional camcorder.

Go Mic Mobile transmits uncompressed, low latency audio and can operate up to 100’ utilizing the 2.4GHz frequency band. Its 10Hz–22kHz frequency response and 48kHz bitrate ensure high quality audio reproduction, while it also features a switchable 1/8-inch headphone/line output with volume control for monitoring or connecting to an analogue input (3.5mm cable included).

It can be purchased in two microphone transmitter configurations, either as the HXD2 Handheld Transmitter with Q8 Professional Dynamic Microphone capsule or the PXD2 Beltpack Transmitter with LM8 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone.

Go Mic Mobile is available now for $249.99.
