Rode has announced their new Rode Lavalier II microphone. It’s the latest iteration of Rode’s premium lavalier microphone first introduced around 2010. It comes with a new low-profile design that not only differentiates it from its predecessor but pretty much every other lav on the market. The new design should make it much more discreet and easier to conceal underneath clothing or other items.
The new microphone boasts “broadcast-grade sound quality” with a flat frequency response and omnidirectional polar pattern. On the other end of the cable is a 3.5mm locking TRS connector, letting you screw it into standard lockable TRS sockets and it comes with a premium accessory kit including pop filter, furry windshield, mounting clip, coloured ID rings and a zip case.
