With the current announcement of the DJI Motion 2 digicam, we noticed DJI not solely announce one other new product but additionally enter into a totally new sector for the corporate. Microphones. Sure, they launched the DJI Wi-fi Microphone Package. Priced at $329, DJI actually feels assured that it may well dangle with one of the best and is definitely slightly bit dearer than the favored customary by which all different microphones of this sort are judged, the $300 Rode Wi-fi GO II.
On this video, Stewart Carroll places the 2 programs towards one another in a reasonably in-depth comparability that lasts nearly 23-minutes. He covers among the distinctive options that the DJI Wi-fi Microphone Package has over the Rode Wi-fi GO II and vice versa. He additionally goes by way of every of the units to check the options that they each comprise to see how properly they actually examine and if the DJI is well worth the asking value.
All through the video, you’ll hear the audio switching between the 2 microphones as he talks about and demonstrates the assorted programs, and each of that are excellent, though the DJI does supply a handful of distinctive options that the favored Rode providing doesn’t – thus the marginally dearer value level. Options just like the charging and pairing case – one thing that you may solely get for the Rode from a third celebration – a touch-screen show on the receiver, particular person achieve controls over each transmitters and simpler smartphone connectivity that doesn’t require you to purchase a separate cable.
The Rode does maintain its personal with regards to one function, although. It has attenuation to assist scale back the sign from microphones that run slightly sturdy to stop clipping. That being stated and as Stewart demonstrates, you shouldn’t expertise clipping with both of those items in the event that they’re arrange appropriately.
One function that they each have is the power to document your audio straight into every transmitter. You don’t have to fret about sign dropout or crappy mirrorless digicam preamps since you’re bypassing all that utterly. Simply document within the transmitter and sync in put up. The DJI does make this course of rather less painful, although, as you’ll be able to plug the transmitter straight into your pc and it’ll see it like another USB storage machine and you may drag all of your information over directly. With the Rode, it’s a must to undergo a person interface that solely allows you to obtain one file at a time manually, which is able to get very irritating in case you have numerous clips to sift by way of.
Nonetheless, not one of the variations between them are dealbreakers for me with both machine. However, to my ears (with Sennheiser HD25 studio headphones), I do favor the sound of the Wi-fi GO II.
Which do you like the sound of? Or do the options win over sound high quality?
