Digital Camera World Verdict

The new Saramonic BlinkMe combines an innovative design (disc-shaped touchscreen transmitters) with a powerful performance. It can transmit your voice through stone walls at a distance and keep wind noise down to a negligible rumble (or even remove it completely with onboard noise reduction). The touchscreen makes it easier to control than other transmitter mics and the belt and braces approach of Onboard Recording means you’ll never lose a take due to signal drop-out.

The BlinkMe is the latest model in the Blink range of wireless microphones from Saramonic. We’ve enjoyed reviewing Saramonic Blink mics before, such as the budget-friendly Blink500 B2 and the more expensive Blink500 Pro B2.  The cheaper Blink500’s transmitters were simple plastic units that had crude level indicator lights that weren’t particularly useful or functional. The more expensive Blink500 Pro’s two transmitters had small OLED displays that enabled you to get a better sense of sound level strength.
