The Synco WAir-G2-A1 is an ultracompact, single-channel digital wireless microphone system great for shooting videos for Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. It offers a complete, versatile, and simple-to-use solution for recording dialogue, interviews, and speech directly to a mirrorless/DSLR camera or a mobile device with a 3.5mm input.

The WAir-G2-A1 consists of a single, tiny, and lightweight clip-on transmitter with its own built-in microphone along with a separate lavalier mic that can be used if you prefer a more discreet mic setup. A mute button allows the talent to mute the transmitter quickly and easily. The system also includes a compact receiver that mounts on your camera or mobile device and plugs into its 3.5mm input jack. Built-in DSP processing helps eliminate noise and keeps latency down to 12.5ms for improved audio/video sync.

The system delivers reliable transmission with clear sound at a line-of-sight distance up to 492' (164' with limited obstacles). The built-in rechargeable batteries provide up to 8 hours of operation and recharge in 1.5 hours via USB Type-C ports. A two-in-one charging cable is provided.

Color TFT displays on the transmitter and receiver show important information, including battery power, mute status, low-cut filter status, and more. Both a 3.5mm TRS cable for camera use and a 3.5mm TRRS cable for smartphone use are included.

Single-Channel Receiver with Belt Clip
  • The receiver features a belt clip, which also doubles as a shoemount adapter for your camera.
Clip-On Transmitter with Built-In Mic and Lavalier Mic
  • The compact transmitter is equipped with both a built-in microphone and a 3.5mm input that accepts its included lavalier microphone.
  • The transmitter can be clipped on clothing without having to wire yourself or your talent, providing a fast, truly wireless setup. You can also hold the transmitter in your hand and use it as a handheld microphone.
  • A low-cut filter on the transmitter can be engaged to reduce air-conditioning and wind noise.
Easy-to-Operate System
  • The receiver features a belt clip, which also doubles as a shoe mount adapter for your camera.
  • The transmitter and receiver pair automatically for a fast wireless setup.
  • Settings on the receiver allow for gain adjustment for the microphone.
  • The receiver and the transmitter have TFT displays that indicate power, battery life, mute, and gain status.
  • The transmitter and the receiver are powered for up to 8 hours via built-in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
  • The battery recharges in 1.5 hours; a charging cable is included.
Monitor in Real Time
  • If your camera doesn't have a headphone jack, you can monitor your sound via the receiver's 3.5mm headphone output while recording to ensure that you are capturing a clean signal.
2.4 GHz Digital Wireless
  • To avoid interference from TV and radio waves, the WAir digital system operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency band—far away from television, radio, and UHF wireless microphone transmissions.
  • The system automatically changes transmission frequency to mitigate noise and dropouts at a line-of-sight distance of up to 492 feet or up to 164 feet when some obstacles are present.
  • For optimal performance, environments with limited Wi-Fi/2.4 GHz traffic and minimal physical obstructions are recommended.

Does it need some sort of phantom power can I plug it into a mixer or sound system without it?
Asked by: Peter
The Synco WAir-G2-A1 Ultracompact Digital Wireless Microphone System for Mirrorless/DSLR Cameras (2.4 GHz) operates on its own battery power. Phantom power or plug-in power from the mic input is not required. The rechargeable battery is built in, and a charging cable is included in the box.

Does this support Stereo recording?

Does this support Stereo recording?
Asked by: Rev Joby Varghese
No, the WAir-G2-A1 has a single-channel receiver and one transmitter so it records one signal as dual mono which means you hear the same audio on both the left and right channels. The WAir-G2-A2 (B&amp;H # SYWAIRG2A2) has a two-channel receiver and two transmitters. The two-channel system allows you to switch between mono or stereo on the receiver. Recording in mono combines both microphones so you hear them both the left and right sides of your audio track. Recording in stereo puts one person on the left and the other person on the right, allowing you to isolate each person's dialog and adjust each level individually later in post.

because they indicate that the battery lasts 8 hours, when in reality it lasts only 3 hours, I just bought the equipment and that disappoints me
