Product description as follows
The Rode Wireless Go is the world's smallest professional quality wireless microphone system. With both the wireless transmitter and receiver weighing in at 31 grams each, this wireless system goes unnoticed by presenters and causes minimal fuss when added to your travelling kit. Able to transmit audio wirelessly up to 230 feet using the secure Series III 2.4GHz transmission, the Rode Wireless Go is great for filmmaking, content creation, vlogging and streaming, and all manner of presentations.

The Rode Wireless Go can transmit high-quality audio from the built-in condenser microphone, or with a lavalier microphone attached via the 3.5mm TRS input. The dual-purpose clip-mount of the receiver means it can easily be clipped onto jackets and other clothing, as well as slipping in securely into your camera's cold shoe. The Receiver can be plugged into your camera or a recorder directly, via the 3.5mm TRS output.

    Looks good but a tad expensive for what I need… Does anybody have any recommendations for a good quality but cheap alternative (doesn't need to have more than 2 meters range)

      Wired shotgun mic, go with the Takstar ($40). Lavaliers get expensive but the Rode wireless ($400 or so), is quite nice.

        Thanks for the suggestion. Do you have a suggestion for anything smaller - I'm recording on mobile with a DJI Osmo 2 mobile (understand I'm likely to have to rig it up with Velcro etc)

          Rode’s Video Micro is probably the smallest you can get with decent audio, I think you can get it for around $60 on eBay.

      Do you need a mic or a transmitter? If a mic, what kind?

  •  

    It's a good system, extremely compact and good value. I use it on my Nikon Z6 and Ninja V. But the Rode mic is nowhere near as good as the equivalent Sony (ECM-77BMP).

      But the Rode mic is nowhere near as good as the equivalent Sony (ECM-77BMP).

      This Rode mic is a microphone, wireless transmitter, wireless receiver, and rechargeable batteries for both for $240.
      The ECM-77MBP is only a wired microphone with no wireless portion that costs $370.

      How is the Sony equivalent to the Rode?

      •  

        The inbuilt Rode mic that is in the Rode Go transmitter is good but limited in many features that the Sony UWP sytem allows. It's apples and oranges and priced accordingly. The ECM-77 is used in broadcast television and drama all over the world. The tiny Sony lavalier head can be hidden in clothing and hair. The transmitter has powerful menu options. A similar Sony based system like the UWP-D11 package is four times as much as the Rode. But for run-and-gun DSLR use, I prefer the Rode with the Rode lavalier mic option. (+$79 @ DJ City) As I mentioned in my previous post, it needs some audio post to brighten it up.

          Yeah exactly, hence my question - how is the Sony equivalent to the Rode as you said?

          They're made for different uses and have very different price points. Of course the Rode would be nowhere as good (not just sound quality but mounting flexibility as well) as a mic that costs more than 50% - for just the mic capsule itself. :)

            @eug: I was referring to the optional Rode Lavalier Smartlav mic as "equivalent" in design and function to the Sony, not the inbuilt Rode mic. I probably wasn't very clear in my post.

            I have the Rode SmartLav lavalier which I use with the Go transmitter. I'm not a big fan of pinning the whole Rode transmitter (with the built-in mic) to a subject's jacket in an interview. If I'm shooting a commercial or high-end corporate, I'll use the Sony every time.

              Oh right, yeah that makes total sense now. :)

              Yeah, the form factor is kinda bulky for that sort of use. It'd be fine for casual YouTube videos, but I too wouldn't be clipping that on anything more formal.

              I had the Rode Filmmaker wireless kit which I sold recently as I didn't use it much thanks to the extremely bulky beltpack. I went back to the rock-solid Sennheiser ew100 packs, but for casual videos the Rode looks so much more convenient as it's clip-and-go. 2.4GHz reliability is another issue though!

    Adding to my comment, the Rode mic is a little muffley in the high end, but with some extra EQ in post, it's more than acceptable.

    Would using a Bluetooth transmitter receiver work?
    Plug the mic into the bluetooth transmitter, connect to bluetooth speakers?

    How easy would this be to plug into android phones? i.e. receiver->adapter->usb C->pixel 2xl

    The listed price of this item is $299.95. What's the cheapest thing I could buy with it to be eligible for TRS?
