            Four types of long range wireless microphone

            We have discussed the typical methods for recording audio at a distance. There are wireless lavalier, shotgun, parabolic, and condenser handheld microphones among them. The option that is best for you will depend on the specifics of your case. Here we will talk about the benefits and drawbacks of the four common types available for recording audio from a distance:

            1. Wireless Lavalier mics with long-range connection

            The usage of the long distance wireless microphone that is clipped on your shirt or collar is common. It consists of a mini radio transmitter and receiver that match, and the voice source is captured by the transmitter near the speaker’s mouth. The transmitter and receiver are separated by several hundred meters and connected via wireless technologies such as 2.4GHz without wire interference.

            Pros

            • Mobility: Using a wireless Lav mic frees the user from the cord so the speaker can move about and walk around.
            • Convenience: They don't require wires or other equipment to set up and use. Most of the wireless Lavalier microphones for long distances are designed to be plug-and-play.
            • Flexibility: They are widely applied in on-the-go vlogs, live performances, presentations, and interviews.

            Cons

            • Battery life: Because wireless clip-on mics are battery-operated, they may require regular replacement or recharging.
            • Interference: Other wireless devices, including mobile phones or Wi-Fi routers, may cause interference in long-distance transmission.
            • Security: If wireless lapel microphones are not adequately protected, they can be hacked and used for eavesdropping.
            SYNCO G2(A2) dual-channel wireless Lav mic can maintain a stable, secure, and clear audio in a long distance.

              2. Wireless long distance shotgun microphones

              The majority of people are aware of shotgun microphones. Anywhere there is a video camera or camcorder, you can see them. It is designed to have an interference tube, which concentrates sound such that it only records sounds from objects that are immediately in front of it.

              Pros

              • Easy mounting: They can be mounted to cameras through the connector or adapter cable directly.
              • Natural sound: When your subject is right in front of the mic, it can produce a very natural sound.

              Cons

              • Deviation from direction: Before the long distance wireless microphone picks up the sounds, they will go up to 60 or 70 degrees off center-line for the typical human voice frequency range.
              • Self-noise: All electrical amplification produces self-noise like "hiss" and "hum," since to enhance what it is taking up, you must raise the amplification electronically.
              • Restricted range: Because of the restricted range, it might not be the best choice for loud or crowded environments.
              SYNCO long distance directional wireless microphone of shotgun type is perfect for YouTube video recording, filmmaking, and other uses. They are compact, versatile, and budget-friendly.

                3. Parabolic long range wireless microphones

                A mic combined with a parabolic collector is called a wireless parabolic microphone. The unique form concentrates all sounds entering the dish from the front in one place, which is where you place it. This offers an amplification that is mechanical rather than electrical for producing a lot of directions. The parabolic dish amplifies sound coming from in front of it, but not from behind or off to the side of it.

                Pros

                • Precisely directional: Compared to a shotgun microphone, its listening pattern is at least twice as narrow.
                • Considerable Natural Amplification: The amount of amplification received doubles with each dish size doubling. And it may be utilized from the sidelines at NFL games.

                Cons

                • Not portable: You will want a larger and more cumbersome dish if you want a significant amplification, which is not compact for carrying.

                4. Wireless condenser handheld microphones

                The long distance wireless condenser microphone of handheld type is similar to the Lavalier mic. They both consist of a transmitter and a receiver. Nevertheless, it is not as small as the clip-on mic. You can have free movement since it is wireless, but you should hold it in your hands when speaking. This type is often seen in TV shows, live broadcasting, interviewing, live performances, etc.

                Pros

                • Multi channels: Compared to the long range wireless microphone system of Lavalier kind with single or dual transmitters on the market, the condenser handheld type can connect multiple channels for lots of people to speak and sing at one time.
                • Low cost: It is made to be affordable and convenient. This type relatively has fewer parts and at a lower initial cost.

                Cons

                • Lack of compatibility with devices: Operating system updates, modifications to audio drivers, and other software problems might cause your wireless long-distance condenser microphone to act strangely or stop working completely.
                • Inflexible for kinds of situations: The performance may not be adaptable for diverse applications except for live performances or shows, since it should be held in speakers’hands and have nowhere to hide.
                SYNCO P2L long range wireless omnidirectional microphone has two channels for two-speaker recording. And it features a wireless charging case for on-the-go videos.

                  What to look for when buying a wireless mic to capture long-distance audio?

                  We all know that audio quality is the first thing to consider when finding the best recording device. But what should you pay special attention to when you want a long distance wireless microphone? Here we conclude five factors that are essential to consider.

                  1. Anti-interference: Can the long range wireless mic resist the distraction from wireless signals?

                  You will experience noise or signal dropouts as you reach close to or beyond the effective working range of your mics. Additionally, crowded radio frequency bands may obstruct the transmission from your wireless microphone to the receiver. Therefore, you should look for a long distance wireless microphone with stable and secure transmission and anti-interference features. Bluetooth transmitters, wireless networks, and microwave ovens can all cause interference for digital systems operating on the 2.4 GHz band.

                  2. Onboard memory: Can its transmitter store the recording content in case of disconnection?

                  Sometimes the transmitter and receiver of your wireless FM microphone for long distances may be disconnected or received poorly due to the interference of buildings, trees, crowds, and other obstacles. At this time, you may need TX to have onboard memory storage to maintain the continuity of your shooting. This means that even if the connection is disconnected, the audio data can be stored in the transmitter and exported later through the connected device.

                  3. Latency: Can it ensure that the signal is sent and received in sync?

                  The sound that is produced and the sound that is heard can occasionally be somewhat delayed, as anybody who has ever used a wireless mic will attest. This disadvantage is obvious especially when the transmitter and receiver are far apart. Thus, you need to look for the one with almost no delay. For example, SYNCO G2(A2) has a latency parameter of ≤20ms, which you could barely notice the latency.

                  3. Polar pattern: How does the wireless microphone with long-range pick up the sound in recording?

                  Polar patterns specify the amount of an audio signal that the microphone receives from various angles. Cardioid, omnidirectional, bi-directional, and supercardioid are the four most prevalent patterns.

                  • Cardioid: This type excludes backward noise while picking up sound mostly from the rear and to some extent from the sides. When recording a podcast or YouTube video, these devices work best for one person speaking into a microphone.
                  • Omnidirectional: This kind of wireless remote long-distance microphone for exterior use picks up sound equally from front, rear, sides, above, and below. When attempting to record without the sound of wind, these gadgets are an excellent choice.

                  We usually recommend the directional mics of shotgun type for recording, because it can capture the audio more precisely and ensure longer working distance. Also, the omnidirectional clip-on mic is an ideal choice as well, because the connection is based on wireless technology.
