The new DJI Mic 2 offers pro level audio recording that’s easy to set up and use

The new DJI Mic 2 offers impressive professional-level audio recording quality and it’s packaged in a way that makes it really easy to set up and use.

“DJI Mic 2 represents a leap forward in audio recording technology. We’ve combined high-quality recording functions, user-friendly designs, and noteworthy stability to empower content creators with the tools they need to capture extraordinary audio, no matter where their creativity takes them,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI.

The DJI Mic 2 offers omnidirectional recording and is ideal for professionals, content creators and vloggers.

Also onboard is intelligent noise-cancelling technology so you can still get crisp audio even in noisy environments.

We used the DJI Mic 2 for the videos we shot at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and every one of them was recorded in noisy halls at the show but our audio was still crisp and clear.

We plugged in the included lapel mic, but you can just clip each of the two included microphones to your clothing and it will still focus in on your voice and cut out the unwanted background noise or wind.

DJI Mic 2 also has a Safety Track feature which gives creators the option of recording a second track at -6dB along with the primary audio track as a safety net against unexpected audio spikes.

While the DJI Mic 2 offers superb audio quality, it’s the design and ease of use that are among its best features.

It comes with a sleek metal charging case which offers easy storage but also keeps them charged in the same way you’d keep your earphones charged.

And they are ready to use as soon as you open the case – they turn in when you open it up and that takes one step out of the set up process so you can be up and running in no time.

Also included are cables to connect the camera to the receiver and plugs to connect the transmitter to an iPhone or Android smartphone.

The 1.1-inch OLED screen in the transmitter in conjunction with the dial makes it easy to quickly access and adjust settings like gain, volume, brightness to provide the optimal audio set-up.

Each of the microphone have a magnetic attachment if you want to conceal the unit under clothing (if you’re not using the lapel mic).

Users are also able to create dual channel recordings so you can capture audio from two sources like another person you’re talking with and easily edit in post-production.

Under the hood is 32-bit floating internal recording which offers remarkable sensitivity to capture all levels of sound from whispers to booming levels while keeping everything in the zone.

The DJI Mic 2 has a range of about 250 metres so you can be a fair distance from the camera but can still be clearly heard through that connection between the mic and the transmitter.

On the battery side, the DJI Mic 2 can run for up to six hours on a single charge.

For us when we recorded at CES, the mics ran from the start of the day right till nearly the end of the day.
