Digital Camera World Verdict

The Lark Max Duo kit frees you from the constriction of a hard-wired cable mic to walk and talk freely. Thanks to its long transmission range you can record yourself so far away from the camera that you will be barely visible! The Lark Max offers peace of mind too thanks to the knowledge that if there is a signal drop out you can access your complete audio track as a lossless .wav file and add it to the visuals in an editing app. Highly recommended.

Since the debut of their Lark 150 wireless lavalier mic kit in 2021, Hollyland has rolled out a series of four all-in-one mic kits, culminating with the release of the Lark Max in June 2023.  Like its predecessors, the Lark Max consists of a carry case that doubles up as a charger for the units inside. These units consist of two wireless transmitter mics and a receiver. Once you’ve removed the sticky blue tape that protects the mics in transit simply clip a transmitter to your subject’s shirt, plug the receiver into a device such as a smartphone or DSLR, and capture your subject’s voice wirelessly from a decent distance. 

We were highly impressed with last year’s Lark M1, so we were excited to get our hands on the new Lark Max Duo kit before it was released.  If you’re only planning to use one mic for a single presenter then you can save yourself around $100 by buying the Lark Max Solo kit instead of the Duo.
