Best Wireless Lavalier Microphone Systems – Rode vs Sennheiser vs Azden

Today, I will test out three different wireless microphone systems from three different price categories – from the expensive to the affordable. See which one will win.

To do this test, I will let you hear for yourself how each system performs: in a studio environment, outside with background noise, as well as where audio is recorded over longer distances. This way you can reach your own conclusions as to which microphone offers the best value.

I will also show you how each unit looks and operates, and what features it includes.

Here is the video review

  1. Thanks so much for this! In currently in the market for my first wireless lavalier mic. I’d rented the Sennheiser before and really liked it, but the price tag was intimidating. After this video I think I’ll go with the Rode and invest the money I save elsewhere in my kit. Really appreciate you taking the time to break them all down and sharing your expertise!

    1. Thanks! Glad you liked the review… I surprised just how good the RodeLink is compared to the more expensive Sennheiser. Much better deal for that price.

      1. Would be so much better if only to cut down on realestate on your rig if the reciever could accept two signals. That way we could buy one reciever and two transmitters. It’s actually quite rare I only want one actor recording if ever. That puts the price of this system in real world terms at double whatever its listed at because we have to buy two.

  2. I am really happy with this review that found just as I’m gearing up to buy wireless lavalier.I imagine how it would cost to set up lav mic for a scene of 5characters.I also want to know how to connect many lav mics to an audio recorder like tascam.

    1. I will suggest for so many mics get a sound engineer you will need one. then it depends on how complicated the job is. if you are in Nigeria I am a sound man could help you out if you need one.
