BOYAMIC Wireless Microphone Review

BOYAMIC Wireless Microphone Review

BOYA has launched the BOYAMIC, a product touted as the “all-in-one wireless mic with on-board recording.” If it works well, it could be the ultimate solution for those looking for quality audio anywhere, including challenging outdoor environments. After testing the product in both ideal and not-so-ideal conditions, here’s my BOYAMIC review.

Time to connect

The BOYAMIC boasts an impressive level of compatibility. Setup is super simple, with the transmitters and receiver already paired when I took them out of the box. If you ever need to reset the connection, the handy provided instructions use images to walk you through the process.

With the two microphones and one receiver paired, I simply have to plug the receiver into my chosen device. The included modules for both USB-C and Lightning meant that both me, with my iPhone 13, and my wife, with her iPhone 15, could use the same product when shooting our separate videos.

Let’s record!

When I first plugged the receiver into my phone, I was prompted to download an app. This app is good enough for simple audio recording and as another option for tweaking EQ settings, but I ultimately stuck with the iPhone camera app which automatically began to record with the BOYAMIC.

With the microphone clipped onto my collar, I found the audio quality to be pretty good, and it held up over longer distances. While the iPhone microphone can hold up well within a few meters or so, it quickly loses quality and background noise becomes more of an issue. With BOYAMIC, you can just walk away and expect the same level of audio quality over much larger distances. BOYA advertises up to 300m, which is impressive!

Battery and storage

Battery life is also impressive and it’s easy to recharge any of the components within the handy battery charging case. It’s all very well thought out.

The built-in storage is another thoughtful addition, reducing dependency on external devices and helping to streamline the content creation process.

However, the BOYAMIC isn’t without its flaws. Its build quality, while lightweight and convenient, feels somewhat fragile. Similarly, the EQ settings seemed to have little impact on my voice. Perhaps this is a user-specific issue, but I found it best to record raw and add any effects in post.

Final Verdict

For $159.99, I’m impressed with what the BOYAMIC offers in terms of good quality audio over long distances. The inclusion of two transmitters further expands versatility with the support for multiple users. Content creators looking to upgrade their audio capabilities beyond using in-camera audio should definitely consider BOYAMIC.
