The Pocket Wireless from Deity Microphones is a low-cost compact wireless microphone kit that can be used with both cameras and smartphones.

Most similar systems use 4mW Bluetooth 5.0 chips, but Deity uses a proprietary 25mW wireless protocol to ensure it offers reliable signal strength even when talent blocks the transmitter’s line of sight to the receiver. Where the transmitter is behind a user’s body, the range reduces to about a third of its 65m maximum. Latency is 19ms.

The Pocket Wireless transmitter and receiver have one-button pairing

The receiver can be plugged into a USB port on a laptop or phone and operate like a USB microphone with the transmitter’s built-in mic or the included lavalier microphone. The Pocket Wireless can be charged via USB-C in 75 minutes providing power for more than five hours.

The Pocket Wireless Mobile Kit adds a table-top tripod that can fold to become a handle for vlogging, plus a phone clamp that allows users mount the receiver to the side of a phone. The clamp has a cold shoe on top to mount an LED light.
