The system is made up of two ultra-compact units, the TX transmitter and RX receiver. Both clock in at a featherweight 31g each and are not much bigger than a credit card when laid side by side.
The mic packs are aimed at vloggers, journalists, film-makers, presenters and more. Basically, anyone who is looking to keep their camera rig size and weight down to a minimum (that’ll be everyone, then).
The TX transmitter module features a built-in omnidirectional condenser capsule and clip, but it also has a 3.5mm TRS input, so you can use it as “the world’s smallest belt-pack transmitter” for your own lav mic.
The RX receiver features a dual-purpose mount that can either clip to your clothing or attached to a camera shoe mount. It also comes supplied with a 3.5mm cable to run straight into your camera, or audio capture device, with the relevant adaptors. You’re also afforded 0dB, -6dB and -12dB output pad settings.
There’s no word on price for the Wireless GO system, but it will be shipping very soon.
