Featuring the same revolutionary acoustic design and annular line tube technology as the VideoMic NTG and NTG5 professional shotgun microphones, the VideoMic GO II can run off plug-in or USB power. No batteries are required to operate it and with no complicated switches or controls, it is simple and straightforward to use. When used in USB mode, the 3.5mm port functions as a headphone output for zero-latency audio monitoring and playback, essentially turning the VideoMic GO II into a fully-featured USB mic.

The VideoMic GO II weighs only 89 grams and measures just 150mm in length, making it small enough to be taken anywhere. Its rugged all-metal body comes with a professional-grade shock-mount and high-quality windshield included. Users can also take advantage of additional  features via the RØDE app suite: RØDE Connect, RØDE Central and RØDE Reporter. Click here for more information.
