Mobile content creation has come a long way from the early days of grainy video and garbled audio. Today, audiences demand professional-quality recordings, no matter if it’s a short film, quick TikTok post or extended outdoor interview.

In the past, wireless gear for mobile devices was often bulky and provided subpar audio. But MoveMic is here to change the game: This wireless microphone system from Shure has been specifically designed with modern content creators in mind.

Shure MoveMic Wireless Microphone System at a glance:

  • Single- or dual-channel wireless options
  • Records directly to your mobile device
  • Built for broadcast-quality audio
  • Provides up to 24 hours of recording on the go
  • Separate MoveMic Receiver adds DSLR/mirrorless camera compatibility

MoveMic lavs transmit crystal-clear audio straight to your smartphone – all you need is the free MOTIV app from Shure and you’re ready to record in an instant.

Select MoveMic One if you need a single channel of wireless, say for your next YouTube clip requiring freedom of movement and no cables getting in your way. Or go for MoveMic Two if you need to capture two sound sources at the same time, like a journalist conducting an interview on location might.

Forget about clunky mobile microphones that block your shot or distract your podcast guest, MoveMic returns the lavalier form factor to what it should be: discreet. Think of it as getting twice the sound – at half the size.

Built for broadcast

Aside from the fact that it’s positively svelte compared to some other models out there, what makes MoveMic so special is the sound quality it affords. Listen to a MoveMic recording and you’ll instantly know why the expectations for wireless clip-on microphones have shifted dramatically.

So what’s responsible for that quantum leap in quality? Shure engineers have decades of experience creating top-shelf wireless systems for the biggest venues and artists in the world. And they’ve leaned on that unique knowhow to craft a custom acoustic design and proprietary wireless software for MoveMic to bring broadcast-quality audio to mobile recording. This means your content is going to sound better than ever.

Once paired, always ready

For many content creators, every second counts. That’s why MoveMic is always ready to record. Setting it up is a breeze, so you won’t be fiddling with your gear when it matters most. Just download the Shure MOTIV apps onto your phone, connect the mic, and you’re in business. 

Once you remove any MoveMic from its charging case and power it up, it’ll automatically reconnect to your last paired device. It’s those sorts of details that become crucial when time is of the essence.

Record 24 hours long

You might be a seasoned journalist or a new gen videographer, but you can only do great work for as long as your equipment keeps working. That’s why MoveMic delivers an impressive eight hours of battery life per microphone – and the compact carrying case provides another two charges for a total of 24 hours of recording time every time you hit the road. 

No doubt, you’re going to need a break before your MoveMic gear ever will. But it’s reassuring to know you can capture a full day of first-class audio with a kit that you can fit in your pocket.


Camera compatibility with MoveMic Receiver

Using a DSLR or mirrorless camera? Or just need extra third-party app compatibility? Don’t worry, the handy MoveMic Receiver has got you covered. Compact and easy to connect, this is an accessory that will surely get the hearts of videographers out there beating faster.

The shoe mount-ready receiver easily connects to your camera or computer with either a 3.5mm or USB-C cable. Of course, you can also use it with a smartphone if you have indispensable third-party apps requiring greater compatibility. You can purchase MoveMic Receiver separately or as part of the MoveMic Two Receiver Kit.

Total control via app

There’s not much point in recording audio on the go if you don’t have the ability to shape it to your needs. Fortunately, it’s easy to tailor your tone with MoveMic no matter where you might be working.

Simply download the free ShurePlus MOTIV audio and video apps and immediately take control of settings including gain, limiter, compression, noise reduction, and EQ. It’s no exaggeration to say these apps will turn your smartphone into your own portable editing studio.


Resist the elements

Any content creator worth their salt shouldn’t be afraid of a little weather or other inclement environments. So MoveMic lavaliers have been IPX4 rated for water resistance. Would you expect anything less from a wireless microphone for mobile?

Speaking of expectations, the team at Shure is looking forward to seeing all the ingenious ways creators use MoveMic to level up what they do. Will you combine these powerful yet portable lavalier microphones with just a smartphone? Or will you add a receiver for maximum compatibility? The choice is yours!
