New And Improved
You’d be hard pushed to find a more compact and versatile wireless microphone solution than the WIGO (or Wireless Go) II, which is an all-round upgrade to the original WIGO. The WIGO II operates in the 2.4GHz range and utilises state-of-the-art Series IV digital transmission tech, which has an impressive range of up to 200m. This powerful spec provides 128-bit encryption and outstanding stability in dense RF environments.
Easy To Use
The main part of the system consists of the receiver and the transmitters, which feature a built-in omnidirectional condenser mic. Getting the receiver and transmitter paired up is automatic and the whole process is lightning-fast - under three seconds.
The WIGO II is a dual channel system, which means you can use it as a single-channel wireless mic or record two sound sources at the same time. Whether you prefer to use the transmitter as a clip-on mic or a belt pack for a headset/lavalier mic, the WIGO II has you covered.
The sound quality of the Rode WIGO II wireless system is top-notch, with a natural and crisp quality. A huge advantage of this system is its ability to reduce background noise and lift the voice above ambient sounds, an essential feature when recording in bustling environments.
WIGO II Has You Covered
The WIGO II has the ability to record over 24 hours of audio on-board, which can be a lifesaver if you experience any audio issues such as dropouts. You can alternate between stereo and mono recording, with the ability to individually record each channel or combine them. This feature provides you with flexibility before entering the post-production process. Another frustration-averting feature is the Safety Channel, which records a -20db backup in case the main one distorts.
You wouldn’t believe the sheer amount of power that Rode have packed into these units at first glance, as they boast a highly compact size. Combined with the included carry pouch, transporting the WIGO II system is a breeze. The WIGO II comes with two USB-C cables, so you can charge a receiver and a transmitter simultaneously. Once fully charged up, the in-built batteries can work for up to 7 hours of use. There’s also a handy power saver mode for those longer sessions.
Thanks to the 3.5mm analogue TRS output and USB-C/iOS digital audio outputs, the Rode WIGO II system is universally compatible with mobile devices, computers and cameras.
