Digital Camera World Verdict

The Shure MoveMic Two Receiver Kit gives you the choice to transmit high-quality audio directly to your smartphone via Bluetooth or to a camera via a cable-attached receiver. The transmitters are more discrete than typical lavalier mics (especially in relation to the attachable tiny foam windshields). One downside is that this kit will be too pricey for some, but if you’re a solo smartphone shooter then you can save some cash by purchasing the single Shure MoveMic One kit and enjoy wireless Bluetooth connectivity without a receiver.

The Shure MoveMic Two kit is the fifteenth wireless lavalier mic kit that I’ve reviewed since 2022, but it’s the first product from Shure that I’ve tested. Shure has a well-established reputation for providing a wide range of high-quality mics for industry professionals, so I was interested to see how the MoveMic 2 shaped up in comparison to the best lavalier mics and best iPhone mics I’ve tested from Hollyland, JOBY, Godox, and Saramonic.

The wireless lavalier mic kits I’ve reviewed vary in price, quality, and functionality. High-end wireless mic kits such as the DJI Mic 2 boast 32-bit floating point onboard recording on their transmitters, so it is almost impossible to record bad sound (or lose audio due to signal dropout). With the evolution of the smartphone into a professional camera, kits such as the Godox WES2 have receivers designed to plug straight into a smartphone without the need for dangling cables.

Godox WES2

Godox WES2
If you’re a smartphone content creator and want a cheaper budget wireless mic kit, then the Godox WES should meet your needs. The receiver plugs directly into your smartphone’s socket and the sound quality is very good with minimal drop-out when you lose line of sight at a long distance from your phone. Just make sure that you buy the appropriate version of the Godox WES for Android or iPhone.


Released in early 2024, the Boyamic is another iPhone/smartphone-friendly wireless mic kit. Unlike the Godox WES the Boyamic ships with two adaptors that enable you to plug its transmitter into any smartphone or iPhone model. It also has the bonus of onboard recording, which makes it slightly more expensive than the Godox WES - and far cheaper than the Shure MoveMic Two kit.
