There are many ways to record audio of someone speaking. You could simply point a microphone at them, use an external microphone mounted on a camera, use the built-in microphone on your phone or camera, or if you want to be more professional and capture the best quality possible, lavalier microphones are the way to go.
However, if you want a lavalier microphone that’s very discreet, then you might be interested to learn that Rode has announced their new Lavalier II microphone. While the company’s lavalier microphones have always been small and somewhat discreet, Rode is taking things to the next level with the Lavalier II by using a low-profile design that will help it sit flush against clothing.
The company has also opted to use a flat cable design that will also help hide it in clothing as it can stay flat against the user’s body. The microphone itself has an omnidirectional pickup pattern and has a flat frequency and “broadcast-grade sound”. It will also play nicely with Rode’s Wireless GO II and AI-Micro interface, making it perfect for on the go usage if you’re vlogging.
The new Rode Lavalier II is also pretty affordable where it is priced at $99, half the price of the original Rode Lavalier, so it could be worth your consideration if you’re looking for a new way to mic yourself up while on the move.
