Product description

Style Name:Frustration-Free Packaging

Product Description

The RØDE NTG2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.

Its full frequency response, low noise and audio transparency make it an ideal film, video, and voice over microphone, while its low weight (161gm/5.7oz without battery) makes it an ideal boom microphone.

In addition to the native 20Hz-20kHz frequency response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.

The NTG2 operates either from a AA (1.5V) battery or P48 phantom power which can be supplied by professional cameras, audio recorders and power supplies. The battery power option makes the NTG2 ideal for scenarios where the camera does not supply phantom power such as DSLR video.

The WSVM windshield is supplied to minimise light wind noise and plosives during recording. The optional 'DeadCat' furry is recommended for outdoor applications.

The RØDE NTG2 shotgun microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

I normally save up to buy the best equipment I can afford, rather than buy twice and regret it. So it was with some trepidation that I purchased this for my Sony PCM M10 (see my review of that here http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R2D959ADS1DAY6/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#R2D959ADS1DAY6

Well, I can say that I don't regret the purchase. I have other rode mics which are all excellent value for money and quiet. This mic is *brilliantly* directional and sounds good up to a couple of feet away from the unit. It is also very very quiet when using the AA power, so I always use the on-board power (a switch would have been nice rode!) and I may get some kind of grip for it to reduce on board handling noise (all mics of this type suffer from that). The unit just feels very solid and well made. The xlr pops in with a really strong click and the screw tube for the battery is very good - although I wouldn't like to keep screwing and unscrewing that part of the assembly, it requires a gentle touch - and given that you wouldn't want to leave the battery in when not in use, it's the weakest part of the equation.

That aside, this is extremely good value for money, a nice punchy sound - quite warm, perhaps a bit of EQ after, but then again, all my mics need my personal preference EQ. I think it's the best mic on the market under £400.

This is sort of a industry standard budget mic now. Everyone owns it or another in the series I can see why it is a good mic but it has its flaws. I have worked as a sound engineer for over ten years and I like this microphone in certain situations but then there are better mics too (although this is my go to mic now due to its price!).
The mic has a bit of pick up from behind which can make it bad for indoors as it picks up some reflection, it's still acceptable and many other mics have this lobe effect so not a huge deal but something to think about. This mic has a very smooth sound without too much treble which I have found to be the case with the Audio Technica in the same price range. The only other mic I have heard which beats this one is the Sennheiser MKE600 which is only about £40 more. The Sennheiser has a power switch whereas the Rode NTG2 does not meaning to power it off you have to take it out of the mount/blimp you are using twist off the casing and take out the battery which is a bit annoying but I live with it. The Sennheiser has a low cut switch which the NTG2 does not and better overall sound quality. One thing I found with it though was it seemed to pick up interference worse than the NTG2 but I didn't test this theory, just experienced less overall using the sennheiser.

The NTG2 is pretty much the only mic to buy around this price range that I really trust, go a bit more and get the Sennheiser if you can but the Rode is very nice and gives professional sounding results if you know what you are doing. The Audio Technica's seem to have too much sibilance and I would be worried about having to correct it all in the edit.

For who wants to start to make videos with an excelent sound quality, this is your best choice. The best mid range shotgun mic for an afordable price. Works good as external mic to cameras, but can also be used with a boom pole, to have a good sound quality when you were in small movie production. Can be used with the Zoom H4N to get the best of this microphone. It's the best choice for who is starting with movie production.

As I am sure everyone who has bought one of these in the past, then I am going over old ground. Really good sound but you need to add a powerful pre amp or you won't get very loud sound from the NTG2, I use it with a Zoom H4n which hasn't got good pre amps, so I needed to add a fethed (triton audio) which gives you 20db of clean sound boost, this gives you the proper sound you should get from this mic. Superb audio quality only from Rode.

For years, I used a couple of Beyer shotgun mics for filming which were brilliant. Of course, they were very expensive but `you get what you pay for'. When I looked for a new mic the budget didn't stretch to the £500 - £800 mark so decided to buy the Rode having been impressed with the brand in the past. I am not kidding, I prefer the Rode! It handles sound beautifully, is extremely directional while eliminating unwanted noise and performs faultlessly in many challenging conditions. Yes, there is handling noise so you have to be a little careful to mount it in such a way that this doesn't interfere with you recordings, but that's a small issue and common with more expensive products too. Comes with a foam sock, mount and ten year warranty...which is amazing when you think about the cost you're paying. I've always considered mics an inexact science as there are so many variables. But this Rode mic proves that broadcast quality is available for £150 and I would, without hesitation, buy another. Just a note...buy the NT2 if you can. For the small additional amount, the battery option gives true flexibility.

This is a fantastic shotgun mic, the sound quality is good. The highs aren't to harsh and it gives very natural sounding dialogue. I would recommend saving up a bit more and going for the NTG3 which is far superior but for the price this is a great mic. Be wary of what recorder you pair it with, don't use it with a Zoom H4n, it just doesn't provide enough gain for the mic, even with it at 100.
