How much does DJI Mic 2 cost?

What is the DJI Mic 2 used for?

DJI Mic 2 allows you to record authentic sound, with professional audio quality achieved through the addition of intelligent noise canceling and support for 32-bit floating-point internal recording. It’s an easy-to-use wireless system optimised for voice content, with versatile connectivity for any device, such as cameras, smartphones, computers and tablets.

This makes the system perfect for vlogging, interviews, livestreams, and similar situations with voice recording requirements, even when capturing audio from a distance, without the limitations of wired setups.

Can the DJI Mic 2 be used without a receiver?

Yes, DJI Mic 2 can be used without a receiver, as the transmitter features 8 GB of internal storage plus 6 hours of battery life. This enables the DJI Mic 2 transmitter to record up to 14 hours of uncompressed audio, whilst also serving as a standalone voice recorder.

What are the benefits of 32-bit floating-point internal recording?

With internal 32-bit float recording, a low gain ADC is optimised for high-level audio, while the other high gain ADC is optimised for low-level audio, reducing sound clipping at either end. The result is high-quality natural sound, which is easy to work with during post production.

The second generation DJI Mic 2 addresses a number of reservations including stereo recording for Lightning users, with more versatile compatibility and easy synchronisation to multiple devices. When using with a digital camera via the 3.5mm TRS cable, Mic 2 synchronises its power state with that of your camera, making for an all-round easy experience, straight out of the box.

Other updates include a slightly lower 21 dBA equivalent noise in the second generation (verses 23 dBA) and significantly higher battery capacity from the new charging case, with 3250 mAh against 2600 mAh, accounting for the additional 3 hours runtime. DJI has even designed the carrying bag that comes with the DJI Mic 2 (2 TX + 1 RX + Charging Case), which accommodates everything in a sleeker design and includes a wrist carrying strap.

What hasn’t changed is the 250 metres wireless transmission range, which is ample for the vast majority of situations you’ll find yourself in. After all, you do probably want to be able to see your camera while recording. Likewise the transmitter and receiver operating temperature remains at -10° to 45° C, which caters for the majority of situations from arctic vlogging adventures to filming scenes amongst sand dunes.

Now available with black and white transmitters

Which accessories are available for the DJI Mic 2?

DJI simultaneously launched several accessories for the DJI Mic 2 including the DJI Mic 2 Transmitter Shadow Black, and Mic 2 Transmitter in Pearl White. You can also buy the DJI Mic 2 Charging Case separately, and add a brand new DJI lav Mic, which is backwards compatible with the original microphone.

The charging case has been redesigned with a sleek premium metal finish, which not only looks better, but also offers better protection with easier access through a new locking latch design. It’s a great addition that stores, charges, syncs and protects a dual transmitter setup, which is the ideal solution for creators who work with more than one audio input.

The DJI Mic wireless microphone system is designed with scalability in mind, ideally suiting solo creators who initially only require a single audio source. This flexibility allows for future expansion to accommodate multi-person audio setups, making it a versatile and adaptable choice for evolving content needs.

DJI's redesign of the Mic 2 addresses key areas of improvement from its predecessor. These include longer battery life, superior audio quality through advanced noise cancellation, and support for 32-bit floating-point internal recording. The case is more durable, sleeker and offers longer runtimes between charges. Certain key elements remain the same, and it retains its impressive 250m wireless range in open, unobstructed environments ensuring this model is one of the best microphones for cameras, phones and other vlogging devices.

Reserve your DJI wireless system today. Simply choose between the all-in-one DJI Mic 2 (2TX + 1RX + Charging Case), or the DJI Mic 2 (1TX + 1RX) depending on your requirements, adding audio accessories like the charging case and additional transmitters as you need them.
