Plus, it's got all sorts of cool features like onboard recording capabilities and compatibility with pretty much any camera, phone, or computer you can think of. This really is next-level wireless audio! So please sit back, relax, and let me tell you all about the outstanding Rode Wireless GO 2.
Design & Build
You won't believe how tiny and lightweight the Rode Wireless GO 2 is! It's pocket-sized and weighs less than 32g, so it takes up virtually no space in your camera bag, backpack, handbag, or briefcase. And with the included carry pouch, everything stays tidy and secure. The Rode Wireless GO 2's unique clip design makes it easy to mount onto clothing, a camera cold shoe, a mobile camera rig, a boom pole, or any cold shoe accessory.
The receiver is a sleek little device that's easy to clip onto your camera or clothing, and it has two separate channels for the two transmitters. The transmitters are also incredibly easy to operate, with simple power, pairing, and muting buttons. Plus, they come with some handy accessories like furry windshields and a storage pouch to keep everything safe and sound. When I first used this gadget, I was impressed with its lightweight and functional design, precisely what we all want in a wireless microphone system.
So no matter where you go or what you're filming, this ultra-compact wireless microphone system is the perfect solution for capturing high-quality audio.
When it comes to sound quality, the Rode Wireless GO 2 definitely delivers. The system uses Rode's new Series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission, which provides a reliable and stable connection even in crowded environments. And with a range of up to 200m line of sight, you can capture audio from almost anywhere.
But what about the actual sound? Well, it's pretty good. The Rode Wireless GO 2 has a frequency response of 50Hz - 20kHz, which covers a wide range of audio frequencies. This means you'll get a clear, crisp sound with plenty of detail and depth.
One of the best things about the Rode Wireless GO 2 is its versatility. You can use it with just about any device - cameras, mobile devices, computers, you name it. And no matter what you record, the sound quality is consistently excellent. Whether you are shooting a vlog, a short film, or a documentary, the Rode Wireless Go 2 will capture every sound with clarity and precision. Plus, with the onboard recording capability, you can use it as a standalone recorder and capture audio even when you're not connected to a camera or other device.

Setting up and operating the Rode Wireless GO 2 is so simple. It's like taking candy from a baby (not that I condone taking candy from babies, of course!). Seriously, though, Rode has made it incredibly simple to get up and running with this system. First, it's super lightweight and compact, so you can toss it in your bag and forget about it until you need it. When it's time to start recording, you only have to clip the transmitters onto your subjects and the receiver onto your camera or other recording devices. And BOOM, you're done.
The transmitters and receiver automatically pair with each other, so there's no need to mess around with complicated settings or menus. If you need to adjust anything, the touch screen makes it easy to navigate and make necessary changes. Plus, with the extended range and improved transmission stability, you can count on your audio coming through loud and clear.
