Connect and Go
  • With a single LED and no buttons or controls to fuss with, the Blink 500 RXDi is comfortably easy to use. Its advanced technology invisibly handles the complicated tasks such as switching channels to avoid dropouts, leaving you with a streamlined and simple system that requires no menu diving or tedious manual configuration.
Quality Sound
  • Blink 500 systems utilize 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution—the same audio standard used worldwide by sound engineers in the film industry—to give you quality sound at a budget-friendly price point.
  • Compared to the built-in microphones on cameras and mobile devices, Blink 500 systems offer considerably improved fidelity and clarity with less noise.
  • By connecting directly to your device's Lightning port, the Blink 500 RXDi avoids unnecessary D/A and A/D conversion to maintain the integrity of the digital signal from your transmitter all the way to your recording device.
Perfect for 1- or 2-Person Shoots
  • Since the Blink 500 RXDi is a dual-channel receiver, it can simultaneously handle two Blink 500 TX wireless transmitters (available separately). If you need to expand beyond that, you can use up to 18 Blink 500 systems at once to accommodate up to 36 wireless microphones.
Stable and Simple 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless
  • Whereas typical analog wireless systems are susceptible to interference from TV and radio waves, the Blink 500 digital system avoids that by operating in the 2.4 GHz band, which occupies frequencies beyond those of television, radio transmissions, and UHF wireless microphone systems.
  • Within the 2.4 GHz spectrum, the Blink 500 boasts automatic channel hopping to mitigate noise and dropouts at a line-of-sight distance of up to 164 feet. For optimal performance, environments with limited Wi-Fi / 2.4 GHz traffic and minimal physical obstructions are recommended.
Ready for Anywhere
  • Don't be concerned about licensing or selecting frequencies; the Blink 500 system uses the license-free 2.4 GHz band, so you can go anywhere in the world and have a reliable, fully functional wireless system.
Other Features
  • Lightweight, ultracompact housing won't interfere with the operation of a gimbal
  • MFi-certified Apple Lightning male connector plugs directly into your device's Lightning port
  • Works with iPhones and iPads equipped with Lightning ports
  • Operate up to 18 systems simultaneously in the same environment
  • Includes pairing pin for easy pairing with up to two Blink 500 transmitters

I currently own a blink 500 dual channel with the RXDi Lightning iOS receiver. Will this work with my new Blink 500 pro. If not, can I purchase the RXDi dongle pre-programmed to work with my NEW Blink 500 Pro?
Asked by: Ken
Unfortunately it is a new system, so the older Blink 500 RXDi will not work with the Blink 500 Pro. The new RXDi Pro is set to be released April 1st in kits the Blink 500 Pro B3 and B4, the RXDi Pro by itself will be released most likely early to mid-summer. This is because of manufacturing and material limitations because of Covid. You can use the LC-C35 cable $59 with the Blink 500 Pro kit you already have for full Lightning compatibility with Mono and Stereo, or the SR-C2000 adapter $17 for mono only Lightning compatibility. I hope that helps.
