Thanks to significant enhancements over the original Wireless GO, including two-person shoots, onboard recording, greatly extended range, and highly flexible output options, the  RØDE Wireless GO II  compact true wireless microphone system—now in stock—lets videographers, vloggers, and mobile journalists of any experience level confidently and quickly run-and-gun in the world of wireless audio, whether recording to a camera, computer, or mobile device. Boasting secure Series IV 2.4 GHz digital transmission, easy operability, and built-in mics (lavalier mics available separately), the system is ready to go at the press of a button; you can focus on getting the shot knowing that the Wireless GO II is delivering quality audio at a range of up to 656'. There are no menus and no finicky dials, just simple power-on-and-go functionality and a bright, informative LCD screen showing you what you need to see. When you’re ready for more, use RØDE’s Mac/Windows companion app (iOS/Android apps coming soon) to access a powerful feature set and extended customization of settings—onboard transmitter recording, configurable safety track recording in dual mono mode, file playback and export, and more.            Whereas the original Wireless GO employed a single channel, version II is a dual-channel system, capable of handling two transmitters at the same time for simple, two-person shoots with low latency (3.5 to 4 ms). Since the Wireless GO II can handle two transmitters at once, it features the ability to switch between stereo or dual-mono recording. This enables each transmitter, and therefore each subject, to be recorded to a separate channel, or signal from both transmitters can be mixed together and recorded identically to left and right channels. Use the app to activate safety track recording at-20 dB on the right channel. Each transmitter provides an onboard audio recorder offering up to 7 hours of uncompressed recording or 24 hours of compressed recording, perfect for worry-free backup recording or a fast and easy way to capture sound from your subjects. Export files in various formats, such as MP3 or WAV (16-, 24-, or 32-bit float) with date and time stamp information, as well as automatic markers anywhere the transmitter-receiver link was broken. In addition to the traditional 3.5mm TRS analog output, the Wireless GO II receiver has a USB Type-C digital audio output for operation as a 24-bit / 48 kHz audio interface. This can be connected to a computer with the supplied USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable, to the Lightning port of an iOS mobile device via the RØDE SC15 cable, or to the USB Type-C port of a laptop, iPad Pro, or Android mobile device with the RØDE SC16 cable (SC15 and SC16 cables available separately). For its 2.4 GHz digital transmission and 128-bit encryption, the Wireless GO II has been improved with Series IV technology (the original Wireless GO had Series III, which is not compatible with Series IV). As a result, the line-of-sight operating range of the Wireless GO II can reach approximately 656' compared to the 230' maximum range of the original Wireless GO. Plus, it offers increased signal strength in crowded wireless environments. Capture top-notch audio quality for two subjects even if you don't have an external mic; the Wireless GO II is a complete dual-channel system comprised of two miniature clip-on transmitters (each with a built-in true wireless omnidirectional microphone capsule), a dual-channel miniature clip-on receiver, and a slew of accessories—everything you need to get up and running in the field. Whether you use each transmitter's convenient, high-caliber integrated mic or hook up the companion RØDE Lavalier GO (available separately), you're assured to achieve clear, crisp, intelligible audio. There’s much that RØDE’s Wireless GO II can do for busy videographers who can’t be slowed down by complex audio systems. Share your own ideas on how you’d use it in the Comments section, below.

The lofty legend of the Shure SM7B microphone has been reincarnated for the digital age of podcasting, livestreaming, gamecasting, and home recording in the form of the new Shure MV7 (available in a traditional black hue or a striking silver finish), featuring XLR and digital USB outputs, as well as embedded tech for instantly polished sonic performance that’s perfect for one- or multi-person podcasts. Drawing from decades of experience in broadcast production, studio environments, and mobile recording, Shure engineered the MV7 to surmount the challenges of working in suboptimal conditions and deliver a powerfully clear and impactful vocal presence, liberated from the burden of background noise. Shure MV7 Podcast Microphone Black and Silver Though the MV7’s exterior shares an instantly recognizable shape with the SM7B—the profile seen in countless radio stations, recording studios, and podcasting rigs—it’s what lies beneath the visible layer that changes everything. Far from your typical dynamic transducer, the MV7 features voice-isolation technology to push extraneous room noise into the background and pull out the special sound of your unique voice simultaneously, yielding strong, professional vocals ready for the world to hear. Gone are the tedious troubles of having to adjust recording levels manually and fiddle with compressor settings; the auto-level mode of the MV7 automatically manages gain and compression to make the capture of your voice stable and consistently intelligible with no manipulation required from you. Another massive advantage afforded to you by the MV7 is its ability to integrate seamlessly with analog and digital recording equipment. Outfitted with XLR and USB outputs, the MV7 is ideal for connecting directly to a USB port on your device for easy solo podcasts, or it can slide right into a panel podcast setup by plugging into the XLR input of an existing audio interface, outboard mic preamp, or external mixer. It can even do both at the same time to accommodate concurrent livestreaming and recording to different platforms. Like the SM7B, the MV7 utilizes a built-in mount to allow smooth positioning and secure attachment to a mic stand, boom arm, or desktop stand. Unlike the SM7B, it comes with cables for USB Type-C and USB Type-A connectivity. For additional convenience and customization, the MV7 supports configuration via the ShurePlus MOTIV app for iOS and Android mobile devices. If you’re unsure of how you’ll attain a competitive edge in your podcasts, livestreams, gamecasts, and vocal recordings, grab a Shure MV7, plug it in, and let it do the work for you.
