With content creation on the rise since the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the biggest names in audio are scrambling to deliver more and more refined products built for this exciting field. Hollyland is known for its respected entries in this global competition, and now the brand is set to raise the bar once again with the stylish and incredibly compact LARK M2 Wireless Microphone System.
Ideal for vloggers, podcasters, journalists, filmmakers, and general content creators, the LARK M2 sports a wireless transmitter mic that weighs just 9 grams, making it the lightest miniature microphone on the market. This button-sized mic/transmitter is so compact it can easily be worn on the neck via a necklace mount, no clips or magnetic attachments required, although these mounting options are also available via an extensive ecosystem of accessories.
The LARK M2 captures high-fidelity, lossless audio at 24-bit / 48 kHz. With built-in environmental noise cancellation (ENC) technology, your audio will be super clean with minimal noise across the entire frequency spectrum, preserving voices with crystal clear clarity and full-toned richness.
Battery life is a major concern for creators shopping for a wireless mic system. The LARK M2 sports an extremely impressive 40-hour-long battery life with the wireless charging case. Each transmitter can record for up to 10 hours on a single charge, and the case offers two full charges, with a charging time (from empty to full) of less than one and a half hours.
The long-range transmission is excellent, as well, providing up to a 1000' stable transmission range. The advanced high-gain Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) antenna avoids human body interference, capturing your voice loudly and clearly in challenging recording environments that require long-distance capture.
For further protection from EMI and RFI, the LARK M2 is engineered with a specially designed metallic mesh that effectively protects against dust, 2.4 GHz wireless interference, infrared, and more.
The LARK M2 system is designed to be compatible with a wide range of devices. The Lightning plug has an MFi-certified Apple chip, while the USB-C plug connects to various Android phones, iPhone 15, action cameras, and computers. The 3.5mm TRS to TRS cable connects the M2 receiver with DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and field recorders.
With the LarkSound app, you can enjoy effortless firmware updates, volume adjustment, noise cancellation settings adjustment, and the ability to check real-time audio status, all with a simple tap. You can experience instant playback of your audio through your phone speakers when the receiver is connected and utilize simple controls on the transmitter to control your phone remotely, allowing you to start or stop video recording or take photos.
Finally, let’s talk about configurations. The LARK M2 comes in four basic configurations. These are the Combo Version, Camera Version, Mobile Version (Lightning), and Mobile Version (USB-C). Each configuration supports a distinct workflow.
The Combo Version includes two transmitters, one receiver, a USB-C plug, a Lightning plug, a charging case, two windscreens, a USB-C cable, and a 3.5mm TRS cable. It also includes a host of accessories, including two back clips, four clip magnets, two necklace silicone cases, a transmitter sticker, and a drawstring bag. This is the ideal choice for creators seeking a complete, flexible, all-encompassing wireless system.
For those looking to add a simple, lightweight, high-quality audio capture system to their existing camera setup, the Camera Version is the optimal choice. This configuration comes with two transmitters, one receiver, an extra-large charging case with three charges and simultaneous RX and TX charging, two windscreens, various USB-C cables with different end plugs, and a 3.5mm TRS cable. It also includes the clip magnets, back lips, necklace silicone case, and sticker of the Combo Version.
Finally, the Mobile Version comes in two flavors: USB-C (black or white) and Lightning (black or white). Each version includes the same basic components—a special Mobile Version charging case, a USB-C cable, two windscreens, two silicone necklace cases, four clip magnets, two back lips, a sticker, and a drawstring bag. These two systems are only differentiated by their included USB-C or Lightning plugs.
