RODE Wireless GO II Overview
Expanding on the original Wireless GO with updates allowing for
two-person shoots, onboard recording, a greatly extended range, and
flexible output options, the black Rode Wireless Go II system
lets videographers, vloggers, and mobile journalists confidently and
quickly incorporate wireless audio into their setup regardless of their
experience level or what device they're recording to.
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 feet. 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 Rode's companion app to access a powerful feature
set and extended customization of settings.
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).

compatible) to unlock powerful features and device customization—onboard
transmitter recording, configurable safety track recording in dual mono
mode, file playback and export, and more.
the app, each transmitter provides an onboard audio recorder offering
up to seven hours of uncompressed recording (24-bit / 48 kHz WAV) 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.
the Wireless GO II can handle two transmitters at once, it features the
ability to switch between stereo or dual-mono output modes. This
enables each transmitter, and therefore each subject, to be recorded to a
separate channel. Alternatively, signal from both transmitters can be
mixed together and recorded identically to left and right channels. Use
the app to activate safety track recording (-20 dB on the right
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 Rode SC15 cable, or to the USB Type-C
port of a laptop, iPad Pro, or Android mobile device with the Rode SC16
cable (SC15 and SC16 cables available separately).
new Series IV technology extends the line-of-sight operating range of
the Wireless GO II to approximately 656' compared to the 230' maximum
range of the original Wireless GO. It also offers increased signal
strength in crowded wireless environments. Plus, the system is designed
to run both transmitters without affecting the range performance.
Recording Mode: When this mode is activated, the transmitter will start
recording audio as soon as it is switched on. It will continue
recording until it is switched off, regardless of the status of the
receiver. This means that you will have a continuous recording from the
moment the transmitter is switched on, making this mode suitable for
using the Wireless GO II as a standalone field recorder. Note that in
this mode, the "mute" function will not affect the onboard recording
(although it will still mute the wireless transmission). This will be
the default recording mode when the Wireless GO II is on the latest
Recording Mode: When this mode is activated, the transmitter will start
recording audio when it connects to the receiver. When the receiver is
switched off, the recording will stop. This means that if the signal
drops out at any time or if you forget to hit record on your device, you
will still have a backup recording for the period that the wireless
connection was active.
Switching off the recording function means the transmitter will not
record any audio. Existing recordings will remain on the unit until
manually deleted using Rode Central.
- Activatable input pads on the transmitters engage low-sensitivity mode to avoid distortion when dealing with loud talkers.
with stunning simplicity and efficiency in mind, the Rode Wireless GO
II offers instantaneous functionality out of the box for your next news
shoot, video project, or interview. Power up, let the receiver and
transmitters automatically pair, then GO!
journalists, videographers, and vloggers will appreciate the Wireless
GO II's pocket- and bag-friendly portability. With the transmitters and
receiver each weighing just over an ounce and measuring approximately
1.7 x 1.8 x 0.7 inches, the subjects and camera operator will forget
they're even there!

TRS input with plug-in power, so you can connect most lavalier
microphones equipped with a non-locking 3.5mm TRS mini plug (such as
Rode's own Lavalier GO, available separately), and still enjoy the
convenience of the Wireless GO II.

Rode's popular RODELink wireless systems, the Wireless GO II system
utilizes the 2.4 GHz frequency band to get you away from the congested
and confusing domain of UHF. Forget about scanning for channels and
dialing in squelch to get a strong signal; the Wireless GO II just
of Rode's optimized transmission algorithm, the Wireless GO II empowers
you with a line-of-sight range of up to 656 feet, and bolsters signal
dependability to mitigate drop-outs in crowded short-range environments
such as retail stores, malls, office buildings, and hotels.
new Series IV 2.4 GHz digital transmission incorporates 128-bit
encryption for security, stability, and hassle-free operation while
bypassing the frustration of dealing with licenses and frequency
mandates. Go anywhere in the world with the Wireless GO II; it
automatically gives you a strong signal no matter the scenario.
For optimal performance from this 2.4 GHz system, users are encouraged
to maintain as direct a line of sight as possible between the
transmitter and receiver. The Wireless GO II is not backward-compatible
with the original Wireless GO system.
Wireless GO II can be fully integrated with Rode Connect software,
allowing you to capture broadcast-grade sound for your content with more
freedom and flexibility than ever before, perfect for IRL streaming,
recording presentations or classes, and more.
the Wireless GO II with Rode Connect is also ideal for podcasting
applications where you require the freedom of wireless audio, from
recording interviews to casual podcasting setups.
Connect allows two Wireless GO IIs to be connected to a single
computer. Each transmitter can be allocated to its own channel in the
software for a total of four separate wireless audio streams, each with
an individual level meter as well as solo and mute buttons. The Wireless
GO II can also be used in conjunction with the NT-USB Mini within Rode
