Professional Audio With Ease

Capturing professional-quality audio is effortless with the RODE VideoMic GO II. It has the same ground-breaking acoustic design as the VideoMic NTG and NTG5 professional shotgun microphones, which uses RODE's pioneering annular line tube technology to produce unrivalled transparency and rich, full-bodied sound that improves the sound experience of any device it's connected to. The VideoMic GO II is powered by plug-in or USB power, so there are no batteries to worry about. It's also remarkably easy to use, with no difficult switches or knobs, allowing producers to simply pick it up, plug it in, and go.

Perfect for filmmakers and content creators

The VideoMic GO II, like all RODE VideoMics, has a 3.5mm TRS output and is a great option for filmmakers and content creators looking for a small, easy-to-use microphone for capturing high-quality sound with a camera. It also has a USB-C port for connecting to cellphones, tablets, and computers – a feature that was also available on the VideoMic NTG.

A full-featured USB Microphone

The VideoMic GO II is ideal for everything from creating video for TikTok on a smartphone to recording a podcast on a computer thanks to this ground-breaking patent-pending technology. When in USB mode, the 3.5mm connector serves as a headphone output for zero-latency audio monitoring and playback, thereby transforming the VideoMic GO II into a full-featured USB microphone.

Extremely Lightweight and Compact

The VideoMic GO II is ultralightweight and compact, weighing only 89 grammes and measuring about 150mm in length. It can be used with compact cameras, smartphone recording rigs, or as a desktop USB microphone, and it's small enough to carry around with you — excellent for makers on the go. With a professional-grade shock mount and high-quality windscreen included, a durable all-metal body, and renowned RODE build quality, the VideoMic GO II delivers a punch despite its small size.

Compatible with RODE Connect App

The VideoMic GO II is compatible with RODE Connect, RODE's free podcasting and streaming software. This permits up to four VideoMic GO IIs (and other compatible RODE microphones) to be connected to a pc, with full control over the microphone's input level, access to the high-pass filter, high-frequency boost and pad, and studio-grade audio processing, including the legendary APHEX Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects, as well as a compressor and noise gate.
