Rode has announced the Wireless GO Compact Microphone System, which boasts a transmitter that doubles as either a clip-on mic or a belt pack for a lavalier, priced at $199. The transmitter then sends the audio to Rode’s Series II 2.4GHz receiver.
Rode designed the transmitter with a pre-polarized and pressure-operated internal capsule that features an omnidirectional pickup pattern and frequency range of 50Hz to 20kHz.
It also boasts a standard 3.5mm TRS input with a 20Hz to 20kHz range.
Both the transmitter and receiver have a clip, and the unit runs on a rechargeable internal battery that lasts up to seven hours on a single charge.
The Rode Wireless GO also supports external battery packs during operation for continuous use.
Rode says the receiver is different in that it has a 3.5mm TRS output for monitoring or connecting to recording devices, such as a camera or dedicated audio recorder. It also features a colour LCD screen for viewing and adjusting settings.
