I'm doing more interviews in person and on the go, so I looked at the Rode Wireless Go, but it seemed you always needed your phone or computer to adjust the settings. Then I heard about the DJI Mic, and watched a few videos, and I was hooked.
For me, it was about the ability to be hyper-portable and ready to go at a moment's notice. I've also got a ton of battery life as the case charges the mics and receiver when you're not using them. You can also power all of those via USB C.
No lav is going to sound good as a dynamic mic, but I watched a ton of videos comparing the DJI Mic vs the Rode Wireless Go and while I thought the Rode system has a little more clarity, I didn't feel it wasn't something I could solve in post (let's face it interview ALWAYS need editing) so I opted for the ease of use, and its been very easy.
This lav set sounds great for being $40 or less. It comes with two lavs with 12 feet of cable each, along with a splitter, and a nic little bag to take it with. If you're looking to do in-person interviews on the go, and don't want to have to bring stands, windscreens and more, this is a very affordable solution. (and just as good as a Rode smartlav)
