Rode Introduces the HS2 Ultra Light Headset Microphone

Rode has introduced the HS2, an ultra-lightweight headset microphone with adjustable corrosion resistant stainless steel boom arm and headband.

Rode said the new low profile condenser microphone has an omni-directional polar pattern, low handling noise, flexible hypoallergenic sillicone ear strips.

The HS2, Rode said, provides clean, clear and pronounced audio for any application where the microphone needs to be in close proximity to the presenter's mouth. The microphone is coated in a durable ceramic painted finish in either black (HS2-B) or pink (HS2-P) the HS2 is also available in two different sizes (small or large) to ensure the perfect fit and function for any individual.

The headset is connected via a four-foot braid shielded, Kevlar reinforced cable, terminating at a gold plated 3.5mm TRS output with a removable locking nut to ensure a secure connection to a wide range of recording devices and wireless transmitters, including the Rode Filmmaker and Newsshooter kits.

The HS2's light weight, comfortable fit, low self-noise, minimal appearance and user friendly omni-directional polar pattern make it an ideal microphone for film, television, video, theatre and live vocal performance.

The microphone, after registration, has a five year warranty. Price is $299.
