Hohem's prominence in the smartphone/camera gimbal game has made its announcement of the Mic-01 wireless lavalier mic as its latest products all the more surprising. Nevertheless, the OEM asserts that the accessory will "elevate" any creator's audio with based on "advanced" DSP technology, "stable" transmission over nearly 700 feet and up to 20 hours of battery life.

Given Hohem's usual laser focus on its iSteady gimbal series, it is possible that Sony and perhaps even Hollyland were taken off guard with the launch of the new Mic-01. Then again, the wireless lavalier mic's transmitter has a more traditional clip-on form-factor compared to that of the new Lark M2.

Nevertheless, Hohem claims that its new contender has the same 48kHz sampling rate for externally-recorded audio backed to set anyone up as a content creator, although its signal-to-noise ratio is the lesser of the 2 at 64 decibels (dB).

The Mic-01 also supports environmental noise cancellation (ENC) however, with 3 levels of strength to choose from and its own digital signal processor (DSP) to boot.

The Mic-01's transmitter and receiver are estimated to maintain their 2.4GHz connection from up to 200 meters (~656 feet) apart, and to stay on for up to 20 hours per charge, compared to 40 in the Lark M2.

On that note, its new Hohem rival only has receivers with either USB-C (for iPhone 15-series units or Android devices) or Lightning connectors (MFi-certified for older iPhones), and not one with any kind of 3.5mm input for use with actual cameras.

Either version comes in an "affordable" single-transmitter (TX)/single-receiver (RX) bundle with no charging case (fortunately, both components of the mic also charge via USB-C themselves) currently priced at $49.99 for the Lightning version or $59.99 for its "Type-C" equivalent. 

Alternatively, there is a 2 TX/1 RX/charging case set for either variant. As with the Lark M2, the Mic-01's bundles also come with quality-of-life accessories including little wind-screens, although the new Hohem mic comes in white as well as black. 

All SKUs of the new Mic-01 are available on, although Amazon only lists the 2 TX/1 RX bundles in either Lightning and Type-C at the time of writing - without the special offers that reduce the price of the former to $109.99, unfortunately.
