Maono AU 100 lavalier Microphone I think is the preferred microphone for a lot of YouTubers. If you check YouTube for its reviews, you are going to be presented with a seemingly endless list. And by going through other reviews I think this one has its upper hand on Boya M1.

As I said earlier, the package is a rich one


As in the case of most of the devices now a days, warranty this microphone is valid for 1 year.

The Connectivity

The microphone is attached to a cable , 20 feet long with an amplifier unit sandwiched in. The Amplifier unit has an ON/OFF switch which needs to be turned ON when connected to a non-smartphone device.

Some people had difficulty in connecting this microphone with mobiles and there is a solution to such a connection issue. In the detail document they specifically ask to download a OpenCamera app for specifically selecting external Mic if it is not working plug-n-play.

I connected this to smartphone, windows PC and a Nikon 5600 DSLR camera and in all these three, it is working fine.

I did not have to use OpenCamera App as my OnePlus 6 automatically detected the mic.

Sound Quality of Maono AU100 microphone

Quality is good with minimal noise and almost complete absence of respiratory sounds in the output. In other words, even with a fan on, Maono AU 100 managed to capture good quality audio.


For the price, it is a steal deal, especially considering the things they included in the package. So in conclusion, this one is a complete package for anyone wanting to buy a microphone.
