Boya BY-M1 Lavalier Mic

Boya BY M1 Lavalier Mic is popular among video creators, especially among youtube video creators. It is the most value for money mic as compared to others.


The BOYA BYM1 mic is an all-time favorite among YouTubers and video creators. It is an omnidirectional lavalier microphone ideal for vlog, presentation, podcasting, live streaming, and much more. I basically use this mic for more than a year for online teaching. I bought this mic online for less than eight hundred rupees. I also purchased a different mic (USB, wireless, Bluetooth…) with a price of more than two thousand rupees and all fail miserably. But this BOYA BYM1 kicks off all the mic at such a lower price.

Let’s have a look at its features.

Final thought:

Two things are important to make a video viral on YouTube. First video quality and second audio quality. If your video quality is high but the audio quality is not good then your video starts to look useless. Then your audience engagement will not be made and no watch time will increase and the video will not be viral.

Ninety percent of YouTubers worldwide use this mic. Not due to its competitively lower price but the quality they receive in such decent money. I am using this mic for more than one year and am very much satisfied with its quality.

Due to heavy popularity, many counterfeit copies are available in the market so, beware of that before making any judgment about the product. Check the following for the original:

  1. A hologram should be present as shown in the following image. If you coat the right logo with water it will disappear.
