Is called DJI Mic , a wearable and portable dual-channel audio recording system, finally available for sale, for now only in mainland China. But as the Shenzhen company admitted, some specimens have already been shipped to other countries around the world.
It was due to be released in October 2021, but the known problems of chip resulting from the flare-up of the Coronavirus pandemic, once again put a strain on supply chains immediately after the holiday season, for this reason the DJI Mic delayed the release to March 2022.
Outstanding sound quality and remote dual channel recording
Despite the Lunar New Year , in China economic activity slows down but does not stop at this period. The problem is that many independent shipping providers have suspended their holiday services earlier than usual because China's zero-COVID policy has particularly long quarantine requirements for returning home.
In this context, the official statements of DJI must be inserted: “ The Mic is now available for sale in mainland China and has been shipped to every country in the world. However, given the start of the new year and the unprecedented circumstances of COVID-19, as well as logistics policies in several regions, DJI Mic is expected to be available for purchase in March 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience. We will update on the DJI Store as soon as we have the item for sale ”.

And not just because it has positioned the new microphone as a must-have accessory for content creators. It is compatible with rugged DJI cameras, portable stabilizers and virtually all traditional smartphones and laptops.
DJI Mic promises to offer one exceptional sound quality and dual channel recording at distances up to 250m. The product comes with two transmitters, each with built-in microphones.
