Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the TTStar UHF Wireless Microphone System. I have gotten a lot of questions about this microphone set since I first launched Miyagi Mornings and started using it.
I feel this microphone can truly elevate your video production, specifically on cell phones to a much higher level. The best part is the price, under 50 bucks and you are in business. There is a lot to love here, but the biggest part is how simple it is.
Plug the receiver, turn on the transmitter and you are in business. I also love that this tool is rechargeable and the pig tail for charging lets you charge both receiver and transmitter on a single USB port.
Is a 700 dollar set of professional microphones better? Of course however I have found this item as good or better than a lot of “mid priced” microphones in the 200-300 dollar range. About the only part not really intuitive is the way you sync the two of them if they lose sync, that said it works perfectly when you follow the instructions. Those come with it but I am putting them in the PS below as much for myself as for you guys. That way I don’t have to dig out the manual if I lose sync. On that, I only had to sync them the day I got them and one time in between.
I have now been using this tool about 6 weeks and really wanted to give it a good trial before recommending it, at this point, I fully endorse it. At 45 bucks the price to value ratio is huge here. 2000+ ratings and 4.5 stars, there is a reason. It just works, which is what I always look for.
One thing to note is if you are an iPhone user it works fine BUT you will need the 3.5mm to Lightening Cable adapter to make it work. So if you lost yours make sure to pick one up or perhaps grab a spare in case you need one. I have NOT tried it with a 3rd party dongle but your mileage with those may vary, regardless of what you plug into them.
So if you produce videos with your cell phone and want better video I can’t recommend these highly enough. And even if you own better gear at 45 bucks, man these things make a great back up for that too. So check out the TTStar UHF Wireless Microphone System and take your video production up a level.

P.S. Here are the syncing instructions if the transmitter translated from Chinglish to actual English. This sounds like a pain in the ass but it really isn’t and it has worked perfectly for me.
- Turn off the power button of the transmitter and receiver.
- Hold down the right arrow button and the transmitter power button at the same time for about 3 seconds.
- Turn on and hold the transmitter power button and then hold down the left and right arrow buttons of the transmitter at the same time and the text on the display screen will blink.
- Turn on the receiver power and the indicator light of the receiver will flash 3 times. Then turn off the transmitter, after a few seconds, turn on the transmitter again.
- Then the RF/AF light should be steady blue, which means the system is paired successful.
