Hollyland has just released a new budget option for its wireless audio system: the Hollyland Lark 150 Solo Kit. This Solo Kit is aimed at vloggers or independent content creators with only one transmitter and one receiver, instead of two transmitters for the “regular” version. All the specifications of this wireless audio system are the same, with up to 100m reach and 5ms latency. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Hollyland was mostly known for making affordable wireless video transmitters like the MARS 400S or the more advanced MARS 400S PRO. However, they recently started to expand their offer with new products like the Hollyland Mars T1000 intercom system that we reviewed here.
Also, in December 2020, Hollyland introduced its first wireless audio system: the Hollyland Lark 150. The price of this system was very aggressive at $329, especially considering that you get two transmitters and one receiver, as well as two lavalier mics and an all-in-one charging case. Today, the company launched an even more affordable option for content creators that only need one transmitter: the Hollyland Lark 150 Solo Kit.
Hollyland Lark 150 Solo Kit Features
Let’s get it clear: the Hollyland Lark 150 Solo Kit has exactly the same features as the original Lark 150. In a nutshell, here are its main specifications:
- Built-in battery: the transmitter has a battery life of around 4.5h, the receiver up to 7.5h
- The case that comes with the product is used to charge/store the Lark 150 via USB-C
- The transmitter is very compact: 37 x 37 x 17.5mm for the weight of 21g. It features a built-in omnidirectional microphone, one on/off button, two LED status lights, and a 3.5mm TRS input jack.
- The receiver is a bit bulkier: 51g, 67 x 41 x 20.5mm. It has two gain knobs with a Mute feature – one for each channel (if you have two transmitters). Between these knobs, there is a small screen for monitoring the sound and battery levels. On its sides, there are two 3.5mm jack outputs – one for headphones monitoring and the other one for the camera’s input jack.
- Up to 100m (unobstructed line of sight) range with less than 5ms latency
- Works on 2.4GHz AFH frequency bandwidth
- Three audio output modes – standard mono track, stereo track, and safety track
So the Hollyland Lark 150 Solo Kit only comes with one transmitter instead of two for the “regular” Lark 150. The package consists of a transmitter and receiver, a lavalier microphone, a TRS cable, a 3.5mm windshield, a USB Type-C to Type-A cable, and a portable storage case.
But, if you want to expand your system later down the road, you can also purchase an additional Lark 150 Single Transmitter pack, which means you’ll get a nearly identical kit as the Lark 150 (and will end up paying a very similar price).
Price and Availability
The Hollyland Lark 150 Solo Kit is available now in either black or white colorway for $199. The Lark 150 single transmitter pack is also available now for $89.
