RØDE Introduces Wireless GO Broadcast Microphone

At NAB, RØDE announced the Wireless GO, an ultra-compact, broadcast-quality wireless mic system designed for voice recording on-the-go.

RØDE said the new wireless mic, priced at $199, is for every kind of content creator needing to work wirelessly.

Measuring in at an ultra-compact 44mm x 45.3mm x 18.5mm and weighing a little over one ounce, the Wireless GO transmitter acts as either a quick and easy clip-on wireless microphone with a built-in omnidirectional condenser capsule, or as a tiny belt pack transmitter for a lavalier microphone via the 3.5mm TRS input.

The receiver is just as compact, measuring only 44mm x 46.4mm x 18.5mm and weighing the same. It makes a camera rig much easier to carry and facilitates mounting on a range of camera gimbals and stabilizers. Its dual-purpose mount sits snug in a camera’s shoe mount, or clips easily onto a camera strap or an item of clothing.

The supplied 3.5mm TRS output cable plugs into the camera’s audio input or, with the relevant available RØDE adaptors, into other portable devices. There is also a three-stage output pad – 0dB, -6dB, -12dB – to tailor the output level to any camera or recorder.

The new RØDE wireless uses Series III 2.4GHz digital wireless transmission with 128-bit encryption designed to deliver excellent audio under any conditions, even in locations with dense Wi-Fi and Bluetooth activity. It offers up to 229 foot range (line-of-sight), but is optimized for shorter-range operation in congested radio-frequency environments.

The transmitter and receiver have built-in rechargeable batteries, charged via USB-C. Battery life is up to seven hours on a full charge, including a battery saver mode. The transmitter and receiver pair in three seconds. Up to eight systems can be used in one location.
