Announced in April, Røde’s new Wireless GO microphone system has seen a very positive response. It’s the world’s smallest digital wireless microphone/receiver combination, and while you can use just about any 3.5mm TRS microphone you like with it, Røde has created one specifically for it.
The new Røde Lavalier GO is a tiny lavalier, similar in size to their smartLav+, but with a 3.5mm TRS connector, instead of the TRRS found on the smartLav+. It contains a “Broadcast-grade” 4.5mm omnidirectional condenser capsule with a Kevlar-reinforced cable.
Although designed for the Wireless GO, the Lavalier GO will work with any recording device with a 3.5mm TRS mic input that supplies plug-in power. This includes Røde’s Rødelink range of products. It’s also compatible with smartphones and other TRRS devices using the Røde SC4 adapter.
