How can we recieve audio sound at a very long distance through wireless media? For example, a man talking to another man at a distance of 500 meters, I want to record that at the same distance through wireless media!

It isn't particularly clear what you are asking. Are you asking if it is possible to pick up audio of someone talking from 500 meters away? Are you asking if there is a way to send a signal recorded at one place to a person 500 meters away wirelessly? Are you asking something else entirely? –  AJ Henderson Jan 30 at 16:19

You're right, it can't be done purely acoustically.

It may be able to be done instead with a laser, I can't imagine the quality is great though, its just a surveillance technology.

I don't know for sure, but I betcha you could pull this off with a good professional quality transmitter and receiver along with a pair of shark fin antennas.

Some good quality receivers can receive up to 1000-1200 feet away from the transmitter, so with the shark fin antennas, I bet you could make up the other 400-600 feet

Also you can use Wireless repraters to increases quality over such distances.
