Rode Wireless Go II
DUAL CHANNEL WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEM
The world’s smallest and first truly wireless mic has been reborn, it’s time to meet the RØDE ‘Wireless GO II’. The all new ultra-compact and wonderfully versatile dual channel wireless mic system. Serving up the very same pocket-sized form factor which made the original so popular, alongside a whole host of superb new features to make the Wireless GO II even more powerful and versatile than ever before! This is true next generation wireless audio.
The release of the original Wireless GO back in 2019 changed the playing field for content creators everywhere. Thanks to its small form factor, the unique ‘clip n go’ versatility and built-in mic offered true wireless recording for the very first time. It revolutionised how content creators captured their audio.
Now, in 2021, the Wireless GO II delivers all the same functionalities, but now with so much more, including dual channel recording, universal compatibility with cameras/mobile devices and computers, extended range and improved transmission stability and on-board recording capabilities. RØDE have yet again changed the way wireless audio looks, feels and sounds.
• Dual channel wireless microphone system for recording two sound sources simultaneously
• Series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission, 128-bit encryption – crystal-clear audio at up to 200m (line of sight)
• 3.5mm TRS analog output, USB-C and iOS digital output – universal compatibility with cameras, mobile devices and computers
• Mono or stereo recording modes – record each channel separately or combine them for ultimate flexibility
• On-board recording capability – record up to 24 hours of audio direct to each transmitter
• Designed and made in RØDE’s precision manufacturing facilities in Australia
“The original Wireless GO was a gamechanger,” says RØDE CEO Damien Wilson. “It truly revolutionised sound capture for everyone from vloggers to business professionals producing content while working from home. The form factor and feature set had never been seen before and many have attempted – and failed – to replicate it since.”
The Wireless GO II takes the versatility of the original to new heights. Each kit contains two transmitters and a single receiver, allowing users to capture two sound sources simultaneously – perfect for a wide range of filmmaking scenarios, from recording interviews to two-person vlogs. It can also be used as a single channel wireless microphone for recording just one sound source.
The Wireless GO II features a 3.5mm analog TRS output for plugging into cameras, plus a digital audio output via USB-C for plugging into smartphones, tablets and even computers. This universal compatibility with any device makes the Wireless GO II extremely versatile, ideal for everyone from filmmakers to YouTubers to business professionals.
THE 'GO ANYWHERE' WIRELESS MIC SYSTEM!
The Wireless GO II offers the same pocket-sized form factor as the original. The receiver weighs just 32g and the transmitters weigh just 31g, with each measuring less than a matchbox, taking up virtually no space in a camera kit bag, backpack, handbag or briefcase.
The transmitters and receiver feature the same unique clip design as the original, which make them incredibly easy to clip onto talent and mount onto a DSLR or mirrorless camera, mobile camera rig, boom pole or cold shoe accessory. This also means the extensive range of Wireless GO accessories work with the Wireless GO II, including the Interview GO and MagClip GO. Ultra-compact wireless audio for any recording situation.
Each Wireless GO II kit ships with a flat TRS memory cable for plugging into cameras and three USB-C to USB-A cables for connecting to computers for charging and recording (additional RØDE cables or adaptors are required for connecting to mobile devices and computers with USB-C inputs). There is also a handy carry pouch for keeping the kit tidy and secure.
The Wireless GO II has been designed to deliver professional sound while being incredibly simple to use. Out of the box, the two transmitters come auto paired to the receiver and will remember which channel they’ve been assigned to in future, ensuring a seamless set up process every time.
The system utilises RØDE’s all-new Series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission with 128-bit encryption, which delivers an extended range of up to 200m (line of sight) and is optimised for operation in areas with a high level of RF activity, including dense urban environments, shopping malls, universities, convention centres and offices. The internal antenna has been redesigned to ensure an extremely stable connection, and with on-board recording providing a backup of all audio, users never have to worry about dropouts again.
