RODE has been making audio gear for creators all around the globe for the past several years. However, it was only recently that the brand launched their first generation of a wireless microphone set — the first RODE Wireless Go. However, they have now taken a giant leap forward with their second generation of wireless microphones, i.e. the RODE Wireless Go II. RODE Wireless Go II comes with a single receiver and two transmitters to record audio from multiple sources and pass it at once through the receiver to the recording device. This new setup makes it incredibly easy to record multi-source audio — which previously required additional work.
RODE Wireless Go II is an affordable set of wireless microphones that can change how you usually record audio. Simply clip the microphone onto the shirt you are wearing with the built-in clasps. If you choose to not use the clips, simply attach to a cold-shoe mount. Both the transmitters and the receiver offer the same clasp system for whichever preferred method. Additionally, RODE offers a decent collection of Wireless Go II accessories to enhance these microphones’ usability.
What We Love
Having internal recording on both transmitters is a lifesaver. With the wireless mics, you’ll often lose the connection or have interference ruining the audio recorded via the receiver. However, as we have a continuous, high-quality internal recording on the transmitters on the Wireless Go II — you’ll never need to worry about any of these issues.
It doesn’t matter what device you are willing to use these microphones with, as they are compatible with everything. You can easily record audio on the camera, smartphone, tablet, or computer using relevant cables. Just get a compatible cable to record audio on your device — and you are good to go.
Future Proof with Software Updates
RODE Wireless Go II is compatible with the RODE Central App as well as the RODE Connect App. With this capability, RODE is now providing over-the-air software updates to the microphones, allowing them to add more features and even resolve the minor issues you might face. Software updates are making the Wireless Go II future proof for years to come.
The RODE Wireless Go II will act as an excellent setup for those looking for a two-person audio setup to record anything from professional interviews to casual podcasts. Additionally, you can use the same mic for a single-person audio setup that can include some client videos or even YouTube videos. These are all-rounders and will work well for almost everyone!
