Are you a content creator looking to level up your audio game? Look no further than the Ulanzi U-Mic AM18. This wireless microphone is a game-changer, offering incredible performance at an affordable price. In this blog post, I list my favourite features and benefits of the Ulanzi U-Mic and why it should be your go-to wireless microphone.
Why Ulanzi U-Mic AM18 for Content Creators?
Many content creators dream of owning high-quality wireless microphones like the DJI and RØDE mics. However, the price tag often becomes a major obstacle. In Australia, these microphones can retail anywhere between $400 AUD and $800 AUD, making it challenging to invest in multiple microphones. The Ulanzi U-Mic offers exceptional performance at a fraction of the cost. Priced at just $120 AUD, this wireless microphone delivers top-notch audio quality without compromising on features.
Ulanzi U-Mic Features We Love
Dual-Channel Recording Capability
With the U-Mic, you can record two sound sources simultaneously. This makes it ideal for interviews, podcasts and various video projects. The wireless mics allow you to capture crystal-clear audio from multiple sources, enhancing the overall editing experience.
The U-Mic offers three recording modes: Mono, Stereo, and Safety Track Mode. The Safety Track Mode acts as a backup against audio level spikes, ensuring that your voice remains consistently clear. Whether you’re recording a solo video or conducting an interview, these recording modes provide customised options.
Multi-Level Gain Adjustment
Achieving the perfect microphone sensitivity is crucial for clear sound production. The U-Mic’s multi-level gain adjustment feature allows you to fine-tune the microphone sensitivity and retain proper sound details. With this capability, you can easily achieve professional audio recordings. I keep my settings to -12DB on the cameras I use.
Wind Noise? Not a Problem!
Filming outdoors can often lead to unwanted wind noise in your audio. However, the U-Mic comes equipped with two deadcat windscreens that effectively suppress wind noise while still capturing clear audio.
Impressive Wireless Range
The Ulanzi U-Mic boasts an impressive wireless transmission range of up to 100 meters. Our range test revealed reliable performance even at 100 meters. See video above. However, it is essential to keep in mind that line of sight with the receiver is crucial for performance. Obstacles such as buildings, trees, or people may cause audio loss or interference.
Ulanzi U-Mic Onboard Recording
We love the onboard recording capability. Each transmitter comes with 8GB of storage, allowing you to record up to 14 hours of backup audio. This feature ensures that even if you encounter wireless interference or dropouts, you’ll still have a reliable recording onboard each transmitter. You can then easily sync this backup audio with your original recordings in Adobe Premier Pro.
Seamless Connectivity and Convenient Storage
The U-Mic comes with various cables to connect to different devices such as cameras, action cameras, or phones. It offers compatibility with its 3.5mm TRS analog output, USB-C, and iOS digital output. These cables are all provided in the box for your convenience. The U-Mic’s portable charging case not only charges the transmitters and receiver but also provides convenient storage for all the components. The fast-pairing feature allows for hassle-free setup, making it a breeze to start recording.
