Our Verdict

At present, there are loads of these wireless mic systems coming through the door. While the first batch could sometimes be a little ropey, especially with the pickup quality, the latest batch seems to have fine-tuned the audio quality and options.

The Godox WEC Kit2 is one of the cheapest dual wireless mics on the market, priced at just under £100/$100. That’s unbelievably cheap, considering you get two wireless mics, a receiver, and a charging case.

The build quality is okay, and everything feels a little lightweight and lacks the quality finish that you expect from more expensive options. However, in use, they are firstly simple to set up—as far as taking them out of the case and they work—and the straight out of the box audio quality is great.

Really, at this price, these are a great place to start for anyone who needs a dual wireless mic system but doesn’t want to spend a fortune. Even if it’s just you that you need to record, this set is a good choice, as you never know when you’ll need that additional mic.

Packaged in a semi-hard case, it includes a lightweight plastic charging case, two wireless transmitter mics, a receiver, and all necessary cables, offering comprehensive value at its price point.

Ease of use is a hallmark of the Godox WEC Kit2. The kit is designed for simplicity: charge the case, and it, in turn, charges the mics and receiver.

Build and Handling

The price is almost always a good indicator of the positioning of a product in the market, and that’s certainly true here. Priced at around £99/$99 at the time of review, the Godox WEC Kit2 is one of the most affordable products of this type on the market. Initial impressions are good, with the semi-hard case containing everything you need being of excellent quality. The inclusion of the case is a massive benefit, as it might not increase the quality of the build, handling, or even ultimately the audio quality, but what it does do is keep everything together, which can be almost as important.

Inside the case, there’s a small pocket that contains wires to connect the components for charging, as well as a couple of options for audio cables, including TRS to TRS and TRS to TRRS, in addition to USB Type-C to Type-A, and windjammers for the mics.

The small charging case is nice and slimline, making it easy to slip into a pocket without too much bulk. Inside, the receiver and mics are slotted into place and can be easily removed. As soon as they’re extracted, the units start to pair, with the small LEDs showing the present status.

When it comes to build quality, the actual plastic used for the case, mics, and receiver is okay; it’s well-made but does feel lightweight. While there is nothing wrong with the build quality, it does somehow feel cheaper than some of the other wireless mic systems out there. However, in the case of the two wireless mic transmitters, this lightweight build will actually be in their favor, as they’ll add less weight to garments, making them easier to position.

As ever, you can choose to use one or two, and through a combination of button presses, you can also select to record the audio picked up by each mic as a mono track or stereo, where each mic is assigned one of the tracks. This makes it easier to edit in post.

Other than that, once you’ve finished using the units, they can be slotted back into the charging case for a power top-up. The units have an eight-hour charge on a single charge, or up to 24 hours when used with the case between shoots, which should suffice for most small shoots.


The WEC Wireless Microphone System packs in a range of features tailored for live streaming, interviews, vlogging, and any situation where you need to record high-quality vocals.

Weighing in at just 12g for the transmitter and 16g for the receiver, the WEC is one of the lightest and most compact audio systems out there. This lightweight design helps to ensure that it can be easily carried and mounted.

For such a small system and considering the price, it’s great to see that it offers both Mono and Stereo modes. The option to switch between Mono and Stereo provides flexibility depending on the nature of the content being created. Mono is perfect for when it’s just you recording vocals, with the mono track being laid down on both left and right channels, while Stereo enables you to split the audio so mic one records to channel one and mic two to channel two.

Another handy feature is the Dynamic Noise Reduction technology, which ensures your recordings are free from unwanted background noise. This feature is particularly useful in outdoor environments or busy settings, where it maintains the clarity and quality of your audio.

Despite the small size, the units pack an impressive 8-hour battery life, extendable to 24 hours with the charging case. This means you’re covered for all-day shoots without worrying about power.

When it comes to how wireless these mics are, as standard they enable a 200m wireless range. This reach gives you plenty of flexibility to move around during shoots, ensuring you capture the perfect shot without losing audio quality. The choice of a 2.4GHz Frequency Hopping System over Bluetooth offers a more stable and interference-free connection. This technology ensures high-quality, lossless audio transmission, which is crucial for professional content creation where every detail matters.

Another nice feature is the ±6dB gain adjustment feature that enables you to fine-tune the audio input, ensuring your recordings remain balanced and clear regardless of the environment. This level of control is standard on professional gear but less common for cheaper units, so it’s a welcome feature on these units.


In use, the units are as easy as you would hope for a wireless mic system at this price. To get started, the charging case can be connected directly to a USB Type-C port on a computer or wall charger to charge up, which takes roughly 2 hours. In this review, I coupled the mics with the Bluetti AC60 when in the field, enabling a direct charge and making things nice and easy.

Once fully charged, I then didn’t actually have to top up the charge for the extent of the shoot and really just left both the mics and the receiver on and in place once removed from the charging case.

In the initial test, I used both mics for a piece to camera, first using mono and then stereo. The receiver was mounted onto the SmallRig Rhino cage on the Sony A7 IV and connected with the standard TRS cable. Once done, the mic and receiver instantly paired, and as standard, were in the mono mode that records both mics to both left and right channels simultaneously.

For the first test, I started with one mic in mono mode and recorded a piece to camera first with and then without the noise reduction on. The results with the noise reduction switched on were good but there was that slight over-processing with traffic and the sound of leaves. However, for more consistent background noise such as air conditioning, the quality was excellent. Switching off the noise reduction, the sound quality was good, albeit a little tinny compared with the depth of more expensive units. However, considering the price, this is not at all bad.

One aspect that really stands out is the ability to adjust the input volume directly on the receiver into the camera with the + or – buttons, essentially adjusting the mic sensitivity. As the sensitivity is lowered, you do need to move the mics as close as possible to your mouth and boost the in-camera audio, but it does help to reduce the ambient sound that is picked up.

Switching to two mics, and again using the mic in mono but mounting the second mic away from me to pick up the ambient sound of the surroundings, worked well and helped better position me in the location, creating quite a nice effect.

The next step was to switch to stereo, once this is done the tracks are split so one mic records to one audio channel, which can then be separated and manipulated in post. Here, the results really took a leap, with the vocal audio being nicely adjustable and placed as dual mono over the left and right channels in DaVinci Resolve 18 Fairlight. Then, the volume of the ambient noise could again be split and laid over two further channels at dual mono, and the volume and tone adjusted. This small feature is able to give your audio a huge boost in quality.

Obviously, the main reason you would want a two-mic system is to conduct interviews, and here the mic system works well but does show its limitations. Overall, splitting the tracks with the interviewer and interviewee on different tracks works well, but there’s no ability to individually adjust the volume of each mic. However, you can of course do this in post.

Again, the audio quality is good, a huge leap up from the camera or on-camera mics with a more focused audio capture, and you can get a little more creative with your audio. However, while good, don’t expect the level of quality that you would get from the HollyLand Lark Max or DJI Mic 2.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to pure simplicity, the Godox WEC Kit2 is one of the simplest sets that I have come across and really does seem to have been designed to be as easy and faultless as possible. Really, you just plug it in and off you go. As standard, the mics are set to Mono, which makes everything very easy to understand and ultimately edit. As your skills progress, you have the option to push the audio recording to stereo, and this gives you a little more flexibility when it comes to editing your audio.

The build quality is lightweight, but this fits the pricing and level of the units. When it comes to the audio quality, raw, this audio does sound a little tinny when compared with more expensive offerings, but again, considering where this sits in the market, this really isn’t an issue.

However, what you do get at this price is an outstanding set of wireless mics that will enable you to do to-camera presentations as well as interviews with far superior audio than is possible with the on-camera and even many video mics. Considering the price, if you’re just getting into audio recording, then this small kit is so well priced it makes it an easy recommendation for anyone just starting out.
