Compared to the standard BY-MM1, the BOYA BY-MM1+ ultracompact camera-mount shotgun microphone offers sharper directionality, extended frequency response, higher sensitivity, and improved signal-to-noise performance for enhanced audio quality whether you shoot with a camera or a mobile device.

Vloggers, mobile journalists, and run-and-gun videographers of all experience levels will benefit from the mic's simple operation; it requires no batteries and no settings to configure. The BY-MM1+ includes two 3.5mm audio cables—one TRRS and one TRRS to TRS—for proper hookup to your DSLR, mirrorless camera, camcorder, smartphone, tablet, or portable audio recorder, and it features a dedicated 3.5mm headphone port, enabling easy monitoring of the audio signal while the main output remains connected to your recording device.

The Rycote detachable shockmount attaches directly to your camera's shoe mount and reduces rumble and camera-handling noise. Slip the supplied furry windshield on the BY-MM1+ to minimize wind noise when you're shooting outdoors.

BY-MM1+ vs BY-MM1

Compared to the BY-MM1, the BY-MM1+ features sharper directionality (supercardioid vs cardioid), wider frequency response (20 Hz to 18 kHz vs 35 Hz to 18 kHz), higher sensitivity (-36 dB vs -42 dB), and improved signal-to-noise performance (78 dB vs 76 dB).

Ultracompact and Ultralightweight

Durable and small, the metal-bodied BY-MM1+ measures only 3.9" long and weighs only 2.1 ounces. This makes it an unobtrusive companion piece for your shooting rig.

Main and Headphone Outputs

The BY-MM1+ boasts two 3.5mm outputs ports—a TRRS main output for connection to your recording device and a TRS headphone output for convenient monitoring of the input signal or playback from compatible apps.

Two Included Cables

Included with the mic are two detachable 3.5mm cables. One is a TRRS cable designed for proper connection to a smartphone or tablet, while the other is a TRRS to TRS cable for hookup to your camera, DSLR, or portable audio recorder.

Directional Sound Pickup

The BY-MM1+ utilizes an electret condenser capsule with a supercardioid polar pattern, which delivers enhanced front-facing directionality while attenuating sound entering from the sides.

No Batteries Required

Since the mic runs on plug-in power from your recording device, it needs no batteries or phantom power.

Supplied Accessories

The removable Rycote Lyre shockmount attaches directly to the shoe mount of a camera and effectively inhibits vibrations from transferring to the microphone. The included furry windshield is ideal for minimizing unwanted wind noise in outdoor shoots.

I accidentally broke the TRRS to TRS cable of my ...

I accidentally broke the TRRS to TRS cable of my Boya BY-MM1+. Is there any Boya official replacement cable for this microphone? Does the BOYA BY-CIP2 work for this purpose?
Asked by: Andrei
No, the BOYA BY-CIP2 adapter (B&H # BOBYCIP2) will not work. This adapter converts a male 3.5mm TRS plug to TRRS. If you want to use an adapter with your 3.5mm TRRS to TRRS cable, you can use the Rode SC3 adapter (B&H # ROSC3) which will convert 3.5mm TRRS male to TRS male. Although we don't have an official Boya replacement cable, you can replace your broken TRRS to TRS cable with the Saramonic SR-PMC2 3.5mm Right-Angle TRS to 3.5mm TRRS Coiled Adapter Cable for Smartphones (B&H # SASRPMC2) or Rode SC7 3.5mm Right-Angle TRS to 3.5mm Right-Angle TRRS Coiled Adapter Cable for Smartphone (B&H # ROSC7) which will both work in exactly the same manner as the original Boya TRRS to TRS cable.

i want to to connect this mic to my PC directly , my front panel has two audio jacks ( mic and headphone jacks) , what should i use ? the camera cable (trs) or smartphone cable (trrs) ? do i need any kind of adapter ?
Asked by: adelqafar
The BOYA BY-MM1+ requires plug-in power which the computer's mic input may or may not provide. Try both cables and check to see if the mic works and also if you are able to use the mic's built-in headphone jack or the computer's headphone output to monitor the audio. If the mic does not work correctly with either cable when connected to the computer's audio jack, you can connect it to the computer via USB using an audio interface like the Audio-Technica Consumer ATR2x-USB 3.5mm to USB 2.0 (B&H # AUATR2XUSB) with the TRS cable. The ATR2x-USB will supply plug-in power for the mic and also has a separate headphone output to monitor the audio.

Do you have any cable that allows me to use this ...

Do you have any cable that allows me to use this microphone plugged into a stereo 3.5mm line input? I’ll like to use it with an Atomos Ninja 2 or an Atomos Connect Convert Scale | Analog to SDI/HDMI, and both have only stereo inputs, which causes phase canceling on tip and ring using the TRRS to TRS cable.
Asked by: Andrei
Thanks for your reply! Unfortunately, I tried it and it didn’t work using standard stereo mini aux cables. The cables are working. I can use them to feed the Ninja 2 with stereo output from a Zoom audio recorder. But when I connect the BY-MM1+ straight to the Ninja 2 or to the Atomos Connect, I get no sound from the mic (both with standard mini aux cables and with the original TRRS to TRS cable .)
