The Lavalier II is Rode’s new clip-on microphone for broadcasting, film and content creation. With a linear frequency response and an omnidirectional characteristic, the inconspicuous mic should perfectly match devices such as the Rode Wireless GO II and AI-Micro.

The Rode Lavalier II could become a go-to clip-on microphone for broadcasting, video production, or similar purposes. According to the manufacturer, the microphone offers a 6mm capsule with a particularly flat frequency response. It also has a compact clip for discrete attachment to clothing. The flat cable should also help hide the lav inside your precious garments.

The technical data provided is quite impressive for a mic that weighs 9 grams. According to Rode, the Lavalier II offers a linear frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, a signal-to-noise ratio of 67 dB, and a dynamic range of 79 dB. The maximum sound pressure level is given as 106 dB SPL RMS (1% THD). The connection is made via a 3.5mm jack locking plug. The Lavalier II is powered by plug-in power (1.8–5 V).

As expected, the microphone is supplied with an extensive set of accessories. In addition to a pop filter and a fur windscreen for outdoor use, there are four colored rings in the scope of delivery to clearly identify several microphones. The microphone clip is also included, as is a zippered transport case.
