Samson Go Mic Mobile overview

  • 1Description

Designed for mobile filmmakers, the Samson Go Mic Mobile System provides both a dual-channel receiver and a transmitter in the form of a Q8 dynamic handheld transmitter. The receiver, which is dual-channel, can mount directly to your smartphone or DSLR camera, and allow you to transmit 48 kHz audio directly to the destination of your choosing.

The receiver itself plugs directly into iOS devices with the included micro-USB to Lightning cable, though it can also communicate with other devices utilizing either micro-USB or USB-C cables. Once the transmitter and receiver are paired, low-latency audio streams from one to the other without sync issues. The system works at distances of up to 100’ line of sight, operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency band, and giving you a frequency response of 10 Hz to 22 kHz for high-quality audio capture.

The Q8 Handheld Transmitter is suitable for performers used to handheld microphones who wish to exhibit freedom of movement in their visual recordings. The system’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery can last up to 12 hours, doing so without draining the battery of your smartphone. Included in the Go Mic Mobile are a 3.5mm headphone/line-out cable for monitoring, as well as a shoe mount adapter.

Note: The Samson Go Mic Mobile offers digital audio compatibility with Android devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later that allow USB digital audio connectivity. Not all Android applications support USB audio, and you may need to download a third-party app to use this feature. Analog connectivity via the included 1/8" (3.5mm) cable is offered as an alternative solution.

    Samson Go Mic Mobile reviews

    Go Mic Mobile Digital Wireless System with Q8 Dynamic Handheld Mic/Transmitter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Handheld worked great.� But lav pack not so much. I SO wanted to love this.� It has all the right features, excellent design and execution.� I heard angels singing when I first saw this!� BUT after I bought this, saw some reviews here that the mic would cut out randomly.� So I got mine with handheld and lav and tested both.� Handheld worked great.� But lav cut out for part of a second 3 times in under 20 minutes.� My Sennheiser and Rode wireless lavs don't do that.� So do not use this in combo with lavs on that receiver.� Handheld mic by itself may be fine.� But not in combo with lav on that receiver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works as advertised. I primarily got this for recording audio for magazine interviews/note-taking. However, it works really well with my iPhone for doing interviews on videos. I like that is comes with a variety of cables to go to a variety of phones and cameras. It has both analog and digital outputs. That future-proofs it when I inevitably upgrade iPhones and I lose the dedicated audio input/output port.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too many dropouts. Unreliable. I love the design of this system, however audio dropouts were frequent. Used in my home for testing, it was acceptable. Used at the Las Vegas Convention Center, outside it was tolerable but had minor dropouts. Inside the LVCC during a trade show, however, it was impossible. Even standing 3-5 feet from the transmitter, the dropouts were constant. I would not recommend this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice idea, too many dropouts In theory, this is a nice idea and can be convenient. However, I have had several situations where the sound just drops out. One situation was when I was doing a live stream on Periscope. My batteries were fully charged, and I had everything set up properly. It was very disappointing. It's fine to use in a pinch, but I don't know how reliable it is.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Audio cuts out frequently I dont know why, but the audio constantly cuts out for 1-2 seconds every minute or so, which is very annoying when trying to capture professional (and unrepeatable) shots. Avoid at all costs.
