The Comica Audio Vimo Q is being touted as a lightweight, mobile audio solution that is ideal for video shoots, vlogging, interviews, livestreaming, podcasts, online meetings, and online tutoring.
The system can receive signals from all four transmitters, however, two of them will be mixed together as you can’t output four channels over a 3.5mm stereo output. This does mean that you will have channels mixed together. However, for a product at this price point, it is hard to complain, especially as it is able to capture audio from four separate people.
The system includes four transmitter microphone units (TX), a receiver unit (RX), a battery case for transport and recharging, plus key accessories.
- Four channels. Lightweight, compact and portable
- New CalMix processing for one-key denoise and vocal clarity
- 48kHz/24bit record, CD-level sound quality
- Digital and analog outputs for wide device support
- Ultra-lightweight 16g wireless microphones
- TX microphones can be charged while in use
- Real-time monitoring, mute, volume control, stereo mode
- Bright HD-quality flip screen display
- Claimed latency below 20ms, range up to 200 meters
The Vimo Q’s transmitters have both a built-in microphone and an external mic input port. The microphones can be recharged via their USB-C ports while in use. Each microphone transmitter’s battery life is 8 hours. With the charging case, the total battery life is up to 16 hours.
The transmitters weigh 16g / 0.56 oz. The included charging and storing case weighs 430g / 15.16 oz with all of the components inside.
The Vimo Q utilizes Comica Audio’s new CalMix audio processing algorithm that is claimed to isolate human voices and filter out noise in difficult recording environments. Audio is captured at a 48kHz high sampling rate and with 24-bit depth.
The Vimo Q receiver features a small screen that shows dynamic audio level bars, battery power, audio mode, etc. The display can also be flipped 180°. The receiver supports USB-C digital and 3.5mm analog output. This allows it to be used with a wide array of cameras, smartphones, computers, and other devices. The receiver’s monitoring output supports plug-in headphones. The microphone input volume can be adjusted and there are mono and stereo modes as well as a mute function.
The claimed latency of the Vimo Q is stated as being below 20ms. The claimed operating range is up to 200m in open areas.
