Let’s discuss each of these accessories we will get one by one
Boya BY-M1 Omnidirectional Lavalier Condenser Microphone
The Boya mic designed with a custom omnidirectional signal capsule. It can capture broadcast-quality sound from a 360-degree range. The best part of this product which I got is that it comes with 6m long audio cable which is useful if you are away from your camera or smartphone.
It has a button of ON/OFF or Camera/Smartphone. Let’s understand what this button actually does.
(A) When you switch to ON/Camera mode, the power will turn on and use the battery (inside it) to power up the microphone so that you can use the mic with the camera.
(B) When you switch to OFF/Smartphone mode, the power will shut down. This mode is used when you are recording from a smartphone.
Note: If the mic is on Smartphone/OFF mode then you cannot use it to record through the camera because it requires some external power. But you can this microphone without a battery to record using a smartphone as this mic uses actually a smartphone’s battery.
This Boya mic comes with a 3.5mm 4-pole golden plated TRRS output connector, so you can connect it to smartphones, laptops. ¼” adapter is used so that you can connect this mic to cameras, mixers, audio-interfaces, etc. also because it requires ¼ aux input.
Foam windscreen is used to eliminate popping or vocal wind sound. Without a windscreen, breathing or wind can cause loud pops in the audio signal.
Lapel Clip is used to place the microphone at a fixed position. You can clip in your collar to give a professional look.
The box includes one LR44 battery to power up this Boya Mic. If you doing an important recording then make sure you are using a new battery rather than an old one otherwise if at all battery is low you may lose the recording. So always keep an extra new battery in handy while recording with DSLR or other cameras.
Friendly Travel Pouch
Many accessories are there so you must need a carrying pouch to provide secure protection for the microphone. Boya has already provided a small travel carrying pouch inside the box so you don’t need to worry about that.
It includes a user manual also so that if you find any difficulty in operating this microphone, you can read the user manual carefully.
Overall, this is the best budget microphone under Rs. 1000. I have personally used this Boya BY-M1 for recordings and I am happy with the sound quality.
Though if you talk about the noise cancellaion part, it will catch nearly environmental sounds (but in low volumes). If you know audio editing, you can easily eliminate that.
Also, the company provides a 1-Year Warranty. I’m sure you will be pretty much impressed with the performance of this microphone. You must purchase this amazing Boya Mic BY-M1.
