RØDE has announced a limited edition dual transmitter version of its popular Wireless ME microphone. The dual Wireless Me kit will be available as part of the company’s limited edition white collection, with the choice of Black or White color schemes for a limited time.
Known as the ultimate grab-and-go wireless microphone, the RØDE Wireless ME limited edition dual set features two transmitters and one receiver. The Wireless ME incorporates RØDE’s state-of-the-art Series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission, ensuring universal compatibility with cameras, smartphones, and computers. Other notable features include the RØDE’s revolutionary GainAssist technology, which uses intelligent algorithms for real-time audio level control. Gain Assist makes setup effortless and ensures pristine audio quality across various recording applications.
Uniquely, the Wireless ME is equipped with a built-in mic on the receiver, enabling simultaneous recording from both in front of and behind the camera. This versatility makes it an ideal choice for interviews and voiceovers in video content. And through the addition of a second wireless transmitter, content creators can mic-up additional talent for recording sound on interviews, live streaming, and more.
The option of going with a white version of the Wireless Me is also beneficial as a discreet solution when working with talent who typically wear lighter coloured clothing – from wedding videographers to business professionals – or creators who simply prefer a white aesthetic. Much like the black model though, RØDE has still opted to put a bold logo in an inverted color on the units so they stand out on screen. Therefore, users will still have to use some gaffer tape to cover on the either color. In spite of this, the option should be a welcome one for wedding videographers, or those who have invested in some of RØDE’s previous limited edition white gear including the RØDECaster Duo, PodMic, PSA1+ and NTH-100.
Scheduled for release for the RØDE Wireless Me Dual Limited Edition is set for Spring 2024 at a retail price of $199. Existing Wireless ME users don’t have to worry that RØDE has sold them out for jumping the gun on the original Wireless Me, however. The company sells transmitters piecemeal for approximately $90. Unfortunately, like the original Wireless Me, RØDE has no plans to offer a charging case, and specifically state that the Wireless GO II charger case that the company sells online will not work due to slight dimensional differences. However, there are third-party charging cases available for about $50 on Amazon. But be sure the Wireless Me models can fit.
