Rode Wireless GO Overview

  • 1Description

Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, this Rode Wireless GO Kit lets you pair your Wireless GO system with TRRS-enabled mobile devices, such as certain iPhones or iPads, so that you can capture high-quality audio while recording video. As such, it's useful for run-and-gun styles of filmaking and news-gathering—styles that increasingly rely on mobile devices.  

Use the Wireless GO system to transmit/receive crystal-clear audio over distances of up to 230'. The Wireless GO makes use of secure, Series III 2.4 GHz with 128-bit encryption, ensuring a reliable transmission every time. Use an external microphone with the transmitter, or use the transmitter itself as a microphone—one is built right into the unit.

You'll note the Wireless GO's receiver gives you a TRS output, making it compatible with many recording systems. However, smart devices such as iPhones and iPads sport TRRS connections.

It's only an extra "R", but inside this redundant letter resides a potential headache of connectivity issues. Luckily this kit solves these issues by providing you with a Rode SC7 3.5mm TRS to TRRS Adapter, thereby obviating any problems.

  • Rode Wireless GO Compact Wireless Microphone System (2.4 GHz)

    Confidently and quickly run and gun in the world of wireless audio with the Rode Wireless GO, an incredibly compact true wireless microphone system offering secure Series III 2.4 GHz transmission and easy operability for mobile journalists, videographers, and vloggers of any experience level. The system is ready to go at the press of a button; you can focus on getting the shot knowing that the Wireless GO is delivering broadcast-quality audio at a range of up to 230 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.

    Capture top-notch audio quality even if you don't have an external mic; the Wireless GO is a complete system comprised of a miniature clip-on transmitter with a built-in, broadcast-grade, true wireless omnidirectional microphone capsule, a miniature clip-on receiver, and a slew of accessories—everything you need to get up and running in the field. Clip the transmitter onto your subject's clothing or belt, clip the receiver near your recording device, then connect the receiver's output to your recorder's input; whether you use the transmitter's convenient and high-caliber integrated mic or hook up your own lavalier (such as a Sennheiser 3.5mm jack–equipped lav), you're assured to achieve clear, crisp, intelligible audio.

    Out of the Box, Onto the Set

    Designed with stunning simplicity and efficiency in mind, the Rode Wireless GO offers near-instantaneous functionality out of the box for your next news shoot, video project, or interview. Power up, press a button to pair, then GO!
    Mobile journalists, videographers, and vloggers will appreciate the Wireless GO's pocket- and bag-friendly portability. With the transmitter and receiver each weighing just one ounce and measuring approximately 1.7 x 1.7 x 0.7 inches, the subject and camera operator will forget they're even there!
    Clip the miniature transmitter to clothing, attach it to a belt, or slide it in a pocket; use it as a lavalier mic (no need for a separate mic), or operate it as a traditional bodypack transmitter with your preferred external lav mic (available separately).
    Thanks to the receiver's minute form factor and integrated clip, it provides the flexibility to be easily mounted on a camera, in a sound bag, or to a mobile device. Its bright, high-contrast display shows battery status for the receiver and transmitter, audio level, signal strength, and more.

    True Wireless Microphone Ready for Run-and-Gun

    Equipped with a high-caliber, pre-polarized, omnidirectional lavalier built into the transmitter's compact housing, the Wireless GO delivers broadcast-quality audio without demanding an external microphone.
    The internal capsule's omnidirectional polar pattern ensures reliable audio pickup even if mic placement is less than ideal, and the 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range naturally attenuates sub-bass tones such as rumble and boominess; your subject's voice will be captured with clarity, intelligibility, and consistency.

    Grab a Mic and Go

    Already have a top-of-the-line external lav? The transmitter packs in a 3.5mm TRS input with plug-in power, so you can connect most 3.5mm jack-equipped lavalier microphones such as ever-popular Sennheiser lavs, and still enjoy the convenience of the Wireless GO.
    The 3.5mm TRS external mic input passes wideband audio from 20 Hz to 20 kHz along to the internal mic preamp, which provides robust dynamic range and requires no manipulation of settings or parameters.

    Sonically Solid and Secure

    Like Rode's popular RODELink wireless systems, the Wireless GO 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 just works!
    Courtesy of Rode's optimized transmission algorithm, the Wireless GO empowers you with a range of up to 230 feet, and bolsters signal dependability to mitigate drop-outs in crowded short-range environments such as retail stores, malls, office buildings, and hotels.
    Rode Series III 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; it automatically gives you a strong signal no matter the scenario.
    Note: 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.

    Additional Features

    The receiver's 3.5mm TRS output sends a mic-level signal, making it compatible with an array of devices such as DSLRs and portable audio recorders.
    Low, medium, and high (0 dB, -6 dB, and -12 dB) receiver gain settings allow simple and effective optimization of signal levels.
    View transmitter and receiver battery levels on the receiver's bright, high-contrast display.
    Operate up to eight systems simultaneously for more complex setups.
    Includes SC2 right-angle 3.5mm TRS coiled cable for compatibility with DSLRs. Plug into your smartphone or tablet via an SC7 TRS-to-TRRS cable (available separately), or snag a VXLR adapter (available separately) for hookup to an XLR-equipped video camera or audio recorder.
    Internal lithium-ion polymer batteries offer up to seven hours of battery life to handle long shoots.
    USB Type-C ports for battery recharging, powering via external USB battery packs (available separately), and firmware updates.
    Easily recharge over lunch and dinner breaks—go from empty to a full charge in just two hours.
    Includes two USB Type-C to USB Type-A cables for simultaneous charging the transmitter and receiver.
    Includes two fur windshields to minimize noise from wind and rustling clothes.

Rode Wireless GO Reviews

Wireless GO Compact Wireless System Kit for Use with Mobile Devices is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Small enough to alway have in the bag! Have tested and used on 3 jobs. Works great. Does not have the range that my Audio Technica wireless, but good enough more many uses. Charge lasts at least an hour and a half of continuous use. (perhaps much longer, but that is the longest that I have tested so far.) The real advantage is that I didnt always pack my other AT branded wirelesses, unless I was planning to use. The one now permanently lives in my GH5 bag so that it is always available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I need! Ive waited for something like this for many years. Super simple to setup and use. Simplicity is the key for me and it sounds great as well with its included mic. Small, efficient, light and the great price. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely Good! This is certainly no Lectrosonics or Axient/Shure, but Im seriously blown away at the audio quailty, RF performance, size, and overall performance of a mic at this price point. Seriously guys, this is dirt cheap.  I had a unique situation where I had to create several mobile closed captioning units for a large event with multiple sessions happening at the same time. I was able to deploy these units to each hearing impaired individual, they would clip the transmitter onto the presenter, and I used the SC7 cable to get the receiver into an iPod Touch with Zoom, which then streamed the audio over to the remote captioner.  It worked flawlessly. We have a heavy 2.4Ghz environment, right in the middle of downtown Austin and never had a single dropout or any interference.  The battery life is great, and the build quality is great for the price point. The use of USB-C instead of Micro USB is the cherry on top. Its also great that you can plug a different Lav or whatever can be adapted into 3.5mm into the Tx. I only wish there was more granular gain control for the input, but once again, for the price, I cant complain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy wireless audio Just tried out my purchased Rode Wireless Go system. It seems to work as advertised and provides an easy way to achieve wireless mic audio. Very impressive. I have recommended it to my colleagues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for bloggers I bought it to pair with my DJI Osmo Pocket. It keeps things small, which I wanted and gives me lots of options to  plug lavalier. Take note. This is a 2.4 GHz mike, same as your home wireless system. It works for 30 feet as long as the TX and RX are facing each other.  It’s a great product. Buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!  best lav in its class. . .easy to use. Beautiful.  Make sure to use the cords w black ends w DLSRs and the cord with the one gray end w smart devices like iPads or iPhones.  Cant say enough good things about this new gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity itself In the famous words of Steve Jobs, “it just works.” Simple, solid, and even inside with obstructions I have been pleasantly surprised by the range. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product. Looks amazing. I tested and is very quality audio. But Im worried about the battery in the future, after 2 , 3 years of use.

Yes, the Rode Wireless Go can be used with iPhone XS Max. You will need to use the Rode SC6-L interface. This will not only allow you to connect one or two systems to your phone, but also has a headphone output for monitoring.

Can you connect multiple receivers to a single transmitter for multiple-mic configs or would one need to purchase TWO kits and somehow combine them in order to achieve this? (The opposite use-case of Michael's question below)
Asked by: Andrew
Due to the digital nature of these mics, 1 transmitter can only connect to 1 receiver. If you had multiple people in need of being mic'd, you'd need a system per person. If you are trying to send 1 transmission to multiple receivers, you would need to use a UHF based wireless system.

Can you connect multiple transmitters to a single receiver?
Asked by: Caleb
No. This is a peer to peer system which means each receiver can only be linked to one transmitter at a time.
