Digital Camera World Verdict

The Virso M2 kit is the perfect solution if you want to record two people in conversation from up to 200 meters. The option to record directly onto a transmitter via a micro SD card provides extra peace of mind if you are worried about signal dropout, but we encountered no problems in this area. If you want to record three people chatting then the Virso S M2 kit is worth a look as it has a built-in mic on the receiver as well as on its two transmitters, but for most video makers the Virso M2 kit should suffice.

Godox produces a wide range of wireless microphone systems and the Virso/Virso S are two new additions to this line. 

The Virso M2 kit and the Virso S M2 kit are almost identical - both include a pair of mic transmitters and a receiver. The label M2 stands for two mics. You can also buy cheaper Virso M1 kits that have one transmitter mic and a receiver. The transmitters in both the Virso and Virso S kits are identical but the Virso S has a slightly different receiver. The Virso S receiver has a built-in microphone so that you can record the camera operator’s voice in addition to the voices of an interviewer and an interviewee who are wearing the two transmitter mics.
