As technology continues to develop, microphones have undergone a transformation from wired to wireless and even to tiny portable devices. With the rise of the e-commerce and webcast industry, the demand for microphones is increasing.

However, many people do not understand that there are always various problems in the purchase of wireless microphones. Today we are going to talk about how to choose a good wireless microphone.

1. What purpose do you use it for?

When considering buying a wireless microphone, you need to be clear about your purpose or how you will use the microphone. Is it for a podcast, to record your music, or for a live program on social media?

2. Where do you use it?

Another thing you need to consider is the venue. Where will you be using your microphone, indoors or outdoors? The location matters because if you use the wrong microphone in a room that echoes, bounces off sounds, or a place where sound transmission is an issue, then the audio will suffer.

3. Frequency

When choosing a microphone, pay attention to the frequency of the microphone. Different frequencies have a big impact on sound quality. When streaming to a far distance, it is best to choose one within the 470-548 or 902-928 MHz bands. If you plan to use your microphone for video streaming, it would be best to go for a microphone with a 2.4GHz band.

4. Microphone type

When choosing a microphone, the type of microphone is also important. The common types include hand-held, head-mounted, and scaffolding. Hand-held microphones are the most portable. You can carry them with you and use them easily.

Scaffolding microphones, often used on stage, can free your hands. But it needs to be fixed, and it’s not portable. The headset microphone is on the head and there is a capsule receiver near the mouth. This microphone is great for performing or broadcasting live. But the sound quality is not good.
