Chinese manufacturer COMICA has recently released a new version of its BoomX-U wireless microphone system: the BoomX-U QUA. This new version has one audio receiver and four transmitters that work simultaneously with a 120m/393ft transmission range. Let’s take a closer look at it!
COMICA is back with a new version of their BoomX-U series of UHF wireless microphone systems that we reviewed. The previous version had one receiver and two transmitters, which – most of the time – is enough. However, if you need to cover large meetings or shoot YouTube content with multiple people speaking, the new COMICA BoomX-U QUA might make your life easier.
COMICA BoomX-U QUA features
The COMICA BoomX-U QUA is a mini UHF microphone system that consists of one receiver and four transmitters. The transmitters and receiver are lightweight at only 45g/1.58oz and 90g/3.17oz, respectively.
All units feature a built-in battery with a battery life of up to 6.5 hours, according to the manufacturer. In addition, you’ll find a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the receiver and a USB Type-C port on the right side of the transmitters, to charge them.
The receiver has two foldable antennas, and the maximum transmission range is 120m/393ft. At the front of the receiver, you’ll find a color LCD screen that shows you the status of each transmitter as well as basic information. There are four little LED lights (A/B/C/D) at the receiver’s top, indicating if the transmitters are linked to the receiver.
At the back of the receiver, you’ll find a cold shoe mount with a 1/4″-20 mounting point to mount it on top of your camera or audio recorder. You can also remove the cold shoe mount and use it as a belt clip to put the receiver inside your audio bag, for example.
On top of the COMICA BoomX-U QUA receiver, you’ll find a 3.5mm headphone jack and two 3.5mm TRS outputs.
COMICA BoomX-U QUA transmitters
The transmitters are a little bit more straightforward. All transmitters have a foldable antenna, a built-in omnidirectional microphone, and a 3.5mm TRS microphone input. In front of the units, you’ll find a low-cut/power button and a mute button.
The kit comes with four lavalier microphones. The lavalier mics have a “special anti-loose design” to prevent unwanted disconnection. I would have preferred a standard 3.5mm TRS locking connector.
Price and availability
The COMICA BoomX-U QUA is available now for $359. In the box, you’ll find a soft case, the microphone set with four lavalier microphones and windscreens, and all the cables/mounting accessories.
