Shure MoveMic Announced - Wireless Microphone System for Mobile Devices and Cameras

Shure has announced the new MoveMic Lav, an extra clip-on Lav microphone that expands the MoveMic One system by allowing the recording of two talents at the same time. With this system, you can record on your phone with MOTIV apps or to the camera with the MoveMic Receiver. Let’s take a look at its features.

Shure, the audio company behind products like the SM7dB mic, has released the MoveMic Lav, a compact wireless Lavalier microphone. The mic is available in single and dual-channel options with the MoveMic One and MoveMic Two. The competition in wireless mic systems keeps growing with Shure, DJI, and RØDE, among others, expanding and upgrading their catalog. 

MoveMic Lav’s main features

The MoveMic Lav features an omnidirectional pickup pattern that ensures clear sound and is easy to place. The included windscreen helps reduce unwanted noises. The mic has two operating modes, normal RF power and high RF power. The last one is helpful when the source is farther away or to overcome interference (high RF power is only available in the U.S.).

Users can configure the MoveMic Lav audio settings using the free ShurePlus MOTIV video or audio apps. Gain, limiter, compression, etc., can be configured in the apps at a distance of up to 100’. Shure’s in-app Bluetooth technology prioritizes audio input rather than playback, a traditional Bluetooth priority. This lets you record two people simultaneously with reliable, quality audio.

The mic’s pairing is straightforward both to the phone (via the MOTIV video app) and to the MoveMic Receiver. Once paired, the device reconnects automatically when removed from the charging case and powered on. 

Direct connection to the phone is only recommended when using MOTIV apps. For third-party apps or other devices such as cameras or computers, the dual-channel MoveMic Receiver is available.

Size, build quality, and battery life

In some situations, such as high-end documentaries, we want to hide our microphones from the shot. The MoveMic Lav is small and discreet, and it can be hidden by placing the clip facing outwards. Also, according to the company, the mic is water resistant, making it suitable for outdoor and heavy weather conditions. 

The MoveMic Lav has an internal battery, rechargeable by using the MoveMic Charging Case (not included). The battery life is around 11 hours, or 8 hours if using high RF power. There is an additional feature of 24 hours of recording by charging two eight-hour charges on the charge case.
