The DJI MIC 2 is a versatile piece of technology that boasts an array of impressive features. One of its standout capabilities is its ability to connect via two different methods – through a receiver or via Bluetooth. This flexibility enhances its usability, making it a popular choice for tech enthusiasts.

Step-by-Step Guide to Bluetooth Pairing

To utilize the Bluetooth feature, you’ll need to pair the DJI MIC 2 with your device. For this demonstration, we’ll be using the Pixel 8 Pro.

  3. Pair Devices: Your phone should detect the DJI MIC 2. Select it to initiate the pairing process.

Configuring Video Settings

Once your devices are paired, there’s one more step before you can start using your DJI MIC 2 as an external microphone.

  1. Navigate to Video Settings: On your Pixel 8 Pro, go to the video settings menu.
  2. Select Microphone Input: Look for the microphone option with a Bluetooth logo. This is the setting you’ll need to select to use your DJI MIC 2 as an external microphone.
