Gearank Recommendation

The U3 Dynamic appeared on our recommended list for Wireless Microphone Systems With 1 Mic from October 2019 until November 2021 when it was out-ranked by other systems.

Overview

The Xvive U3 is a unique option in that it doesn't come with a mic, rather it is a wireless system that can be used with non-wireless dynamic mics.

The transmitter is designed to connect to the XLR port of dynamic mics, essentially turning a wired mic wireless, which is great if you want the freedom of wireless while still using your favorite dynamic vocal mic.

It operates on the 2.4GHz band, much like wireless routers, with less than 5ms latency.

It is designed to be used with PA systems, recording gear, and even with DSLR cameras.

It runs on a rechargeable battery that provides up to 5 hours of usage.

While 2.4 GHz is free from radio, TV, and cell phone tower signal interference, it does suffer the same pitfalls as other devices that use the frequency, like having a short range of up to 90 feet. It is also susceptible to 2.4 GHz interference, which is why the manufacturers caution that you use this wireless system a good distance away (3 meters) from wireless routers.

If you've been looking for a way to turn your favorite vocal mic into wireless, then do check out the Xvive U3 Dynamic.
