Saramonic UwMic9 Overview

The Saramonic UwMic9 2-Person Camera-Mount Wireless Omni Lavalier Microphone System provides vloggers, mobile journalists, and content creators with a quality-sounding, easy-to use, flexible UHF system that packs a set of sophisticated features into a cost-effective solution.

Built for the rough-and-tumble world of production, the lightweight, all-metal components include two bodypack transmitters with lavalier mics, along with a two-channel receiver that's ready to plug into your DSLR/mirrorless camera, recorder, or smartphone (with a cable available separately).

The system allows you to record two separate people to your camera without requiring a second receiver, keeping your rig portable and compact—with one less component to worry about.

Simple to operate with minimal setup, the UwMic9 lets you capture clear and natural speech for projects ranging from YouTube vlogs and wedding videos to corporate spots and interviews.

Flexible Operation for Clean Sound
  • Each bodypack transmitter uses a locking 3.5mm connection to secure its SR-M1 lavalier mic. A short press of the power button mutes the mic between takes.
  • The UWMIC9’s Auto Scan feature searches among 96 frequencies to find the cleanest available frequency for you, while the built-in infrared sync makes linking the transmitter and receiver a snap.
  • Easy-to-understand menus and controls, along with backlit LCD displays, allow you to make quick adjustments under varying lighting conditions.
  • The TX9 transmitters can accept mic or line inputs and offer three selectable levels of wireless transmission power. The highest setting is designed to overcome interference in busy RF environments or when the subject is further from the receiver; lower settings conserve battery power.
  • A headphone output on the receiver enables real-time audio monitoring, especially useful if your camera lacks a headphone output.
  • The receiver’s output can be switched between mono and stereo modes. In mono, the two mics are mixed together and recorded as an identical mono signal on both the left and right channels in your camera. In stereo, each mic is kept separate and recorded discretely to the left and right channels in your camera.
  • Power is supplied via AA batteries for up to 6 hours of battery life.
  • The system offers a maximum distance of up to 330’ and supports up to 8 mics at once on set.
Expand Your System and Do More
  • For man-on-the-street interviews or if you need to pass the mic between several people, you can add the HU9 wireless handheld microphone.
  • Adding the TX-XLR9 plug-on transmitter allows you to connect any handheld microphone of your choice or a shotgun mic for wireless booming. You can even apply 48V phantom for condenser mics.
  • A wide selection of optional output cables (available separately) allows you to connect the receiver to smartphones and tablets via Lightning or USB Type-C ports, or the TRRS headphone output. There is also a mini-USB cable for action cameras, a USB Type-A cable for computers, and a 3.5mm to dual XLR-M cable for professional cameras.

It is still new, and have only used it for a short time, but it is clear, and no lag or connectivity issues.

didn't last long

Mics sounded ok, but less than a year later, both mics are no longer reliable. We keep the mics in the same building, used for the same 2 people each week, and both antennas have broken at the plastic, have buzzing sounds, and will disconnect at random times.

I work for a collegiate athletics program and we use this mic very heavily for different digital marketing projects. I love the sound quality, the distance in which the receiver works (we have had the mic about a football field away from the receiver and it worked fine) and the durability of the outer shell. The only shortcomings we have found in using the mic have been hyper specific to our situation, but I feel like they should be included in this review in case a future buyer is in a similar situation. One of the issues we have come across is the weight of the mic. We do a lot of mic'd up practices in which our athletes wear the mic as they participate in practice and we have found that the weight of the mic tends to pull practice shorts down. We have remedied this by making all of the athletes wear spandex shorts under their gear, but the weight of the pack would be an issue if not for this solution. Another issue that has come up during these mic'd up shoots is the mute button being on the face of the pack. We have had instances in which the mute button is hit mid drill and we lose any usable content until the drill stops. If your subject isn't as dynamic as ours, it shouldn't be an issue, but it is one to note. Overall, our experience with this gear has been really great as the metal structure has really taken all worry away from our mic being broken during a practice and the overall sound quality is great.

Would give a 0 if possible...

We had two sets of these and both sets had the antennas fall apart. These do NOT last. Better off with something else.

Good Equipment at a Great price!

TL;DR: These work great! A little history: I bought the first version of the UMIC 9 (1 Rx & 1 TX) with the yellow label back in May of 2019. The only issue I had was they lacked the ability to adjust the mic sensitivity; so, when a person got loud there was risk of clipping so I worked around it by assessing the speaker before assigning them a body pack as I had wired options. I bought the current version (Tx-XLR & 1 additional TX bodypack) black label in August 2021, then completed the kit with the UMIC 9 (1 Rx & 1 TX) in March 2022, which also came with a high-quality carry case. That said I have a bit of experience in using this system. I have had RF hits or dropouts but considering that it happened about three or four times for the entire three full days of shooting I'd say this work great. It's important to say that when I got the RF hits or dropouts, that I was about 150 feet from a cellular communications tower at a telecommunications substation and we were also on top of a submarine cable coming in from the ocean. I'd recommend this for anyone starting out. I do currently use a number of Shure wireless systems on a weekly basis, and I own four Phenyx Wireless systems so I'm familiar with other brands. Saramonic gives you everything to get started at a reasonable price by providing professional audio features. I'd also recommend that you take time to learn what all the settings mean and how/when to use them. In my experience, I found that some tend to brand equipment useless when the real issue is that they didn't know how to properly operate the equipment. Even though these units can be plug and play out of the box, the RF environment will dictate a lot of what you experience I gave four stars because there's always room for improvement. I hope this helps someone.
