Fresh on the heels of DJI announcing their own wireless microphone and recorder system with their Mic 2, RØDE (the more established name brand in the audio recording space) has countered with an update to their already popular RODE Wireless ME audio recording system.

Now, the RØDE Wireless ME is actually already on the market. However, the audio gear manufacturing company has just released a new dual transmitter version of their wearable microphone system, making it even more appealing to on-the-go filmmakers and content creators looking to get audio from multiple sources.

So, let’s look at this newly updated offering from RØDE and explore how this Wireless ME with dual transmitters system can auto-control your audio levels and help you out on the fly.

The RØDE Wireless ME with Dual Transmitters

As mentioned above, this new RØDE Wireless ME is just an update to an already existing product to add dual transmitters. The original RØDE Wireless ME is a streamlined and easy-to-use wireless microphone system designed for vloggers, content creators, and mobile journalists to help quickly and confidently incorporate hands-free wireless audio into their productions.

The Wireless ME system combines well with any smartphone or mirrorless camera setup and will undoubtedly provide much better quality audio than your built-in options. It’s also very easy to use and features some impressive specs itself.

Features at a glance:

  • For Interviews, Vlogs & Podcasts
  • Clip-On Transmitter/Mic with 3.5mm Jack
  • Dual-Channel Receiver with Built-In Mic
  • Includes Cables for Camera/Mobile Device
  • Easy Setup, Intelligent GainAssist
  • 7-Hr Rechargeable Batteries + USB Power
  • Powerful Features/Customization via App
  • Includes 2 Furry Windscreens
  • 328' Line-of-Sight Range

The Wireless ME boasts secure Series IV 2.4 GHz digital transmission at a range of up to 328 feet and easy functionality with its easy-to-see LEDs where you can monitor everything about your audio as your record.

The Battle for Wireless Audio Solutions

It’s very interesting that this new update from RØDE is coming out right now, as it is on the same day as DJI’s announcement of their Mic 2 system. Truth be told, these are very similar audio recording products that both appear to be quite solid.

The dual transmitters will be a nice upgrade for the Wireless ME as it will counter the Mic 2’s offering and similarly allow content creators the flexibility to record multiple subjects at once. That could be for interviewer and interviewee, or just more dual on-camera hosts — which is becoming a thing.

It’s also interesting that, like many camera manufacturers, both RØDE and DJI are doubling down on these smartphone-style content creators as a target demo. This market space is growing as a new generation enters the content world and is learning this business of video production on their own.

Seeing the audio landscape evolve like this, with devices that are not only powerful tools but also aesthetically pleasing, has really made me rethink my audio solutions. I feel like I should no longer hide my audio equipment in the shot, be it narrative or interview, and instead embrace the new design language as part of my visual style.

Whatever your approach, creatives are definitely spoiled for options.
