Rode hits twice with its new Wireless GO II

This is the new Wireless GO II from Rode

Since Rode introduced the first Wireless GO, a wireless audio system, thousands of content creators around the world have made it one of their everyday must-have tools. Because with a relatively cheap price, it offered a multitude of possibilities when it comes to recording audio without having to worry about cables that you could trip over, batteries to change, interference, etc.

Now with the new generation they want to go further, so much so that we could say that the Rode Wireless GO II are going to hit the rest of the manufacturers of wireless microphone systems twice. First, because now the system is composed of three devices instead of the original two. This is so because now we not only have a receiver and a transmitter, but there is also a receiver and two transmitters. In this way, two audio sources can be captured at the same time.

This simple detail of including a second microphone opens a range of possibilities both for interviews, collaborations or even to be able to have two sources capturing the audio of the same person. Of course, having two microphones is not the only interesting thing about this new generation.

The new Wireless GO II inherits a very interesting feature from the also recent Rode Videomic NTG shotgun microphone: the possibility to connect to a computer via USB C or Lightning cable. This allows or avoids relying on an analog audio input and makes it ideal for use with mobile phones, tablets, and even laptops.

So not only are you going to have ideal microphones for when you record video and want to move freely, but also for audio interviews and even the recording of podcasts on the move alone or with someone in collaboration. Or even to improve the audio quality in Clubhouse and similar applications.

Undoubtedly, these commented news already make it worth updating, but there are still some other extra details:

  • Now the system is capable of storing a backup copy of the audio, thus guaranteeing the user that he will have it even if he forgets to connect the receiver cable to the microphone input of the camera or recorder (something very common)
  • The range improves and passes the 70 m coverage at 200 m according to the brand
  • possibility of record mono or stereo audio

Feature enhancements lead to a price increase

With all this, the new Rode Wireless GO II It is again a product that we are convinced will attract the attention of any content creator and will quickly become a best seller for those looking for a wireless system for audio capture.

The only “downside” is that all these improvements come at a price and the new Wireless GO II will cost $ 299. Those practically 100 extra euros can be justified with the mere presence of that second microphone, although the rest of the improvements are also worth to give it that additional value.

Still, it would have been a winning move for Rode to offer two kits. On the one hand, the individual composed of a single transmitter and receiver, but with all these new advantages; and on the other, double that is the one they present now. But hey, they are still encouraged to do something similar later or not and they are sure that whoever opts for the new product will not regret what it will cost and will appreciate all the advantages it offers.

Of course, the most interesting thing for those of us who are dedicated to creating content and tend to be after this type of gadget is to see how manufacturers like Sennheiser, Saramonic, Comica, etc. Because their products right now were somewhat out of date compared to these Wireless GO II. Do not you think?
