RØDE has introduced a brand-new addition to its range of compact wearable microphones. They say that the Lavalier II is a premium lavalier microphone that is ideal for the most demanding audio and video applications. A spokesperson told us, "Boasting a revolutionary low-profile design, superior sound quality and professional features, it offers the ultimate performance for everything from broadcast applications and filmmaking to all kinds of content creation."
Here's the details direct from the company...
KEY FEATURES OF THE LAVALIER II:
REVOLUTIONARY LOW-PROFILE DESIGN
The Lavalier II features a revolutionary low-profile design that sets it apart from all other lavalier microphones. Utilising state-of-the-art capsule technology and a unique form factor, the Lavalier II can sit flush against clothing and other mounting surfaces. This makes it incredibly discreet, giving users more freedom and versatility when mic'ing up themselves or talent. It also features an innovative mounting clip that is ultra-compact, and a flat cable that is neat and unobtrusive, making threading it through clothing a breeze.
SUPERIOR SOUND FOR SUPERIOR CONTENT
The Lavalier II delivers broadcast-grade sound suitable for a range of recording applications. It has a very flat frequency response and will capture rich, detailed audio with incredibly low noise. Its omnidirectional polar pattern picks up crystal-clear sound from all directions, meaning the Lavalier II is very forgiving when it comes to placement.
The Lavalier II offers outstanding performance for everything from broadcast applications and filmmaking to content creation, livestreaming and even podcasting. It pairs perfectly with a wide variety of audio devices, including the hugely popular RØDE Wireless GO II and newly released AI-Micro, and features a 3.5mm locking connector for use with professional wireless microphone systems.
PREMIUM ACCESSORY KIT
The Lavalier II comes with a premium accessory kit. This includes a high-quality pop filter and mini furry windshield for recording outdoors, the compact mounting clip (which includes easy cable management slots), a set of coloured identification rings for keeping track of microphones in multi-mic setups, and a handy zip case for keeping the Lavalier II and accessories safe, neat and organised.
