Multi-Powered Shotgun Microphone
The RØDE NTG2 is a lightweight condenser shotgun microphone, designed for professional applications within the film, video, television and production industries.
Its full frequency response, low noise and audio transparency make it an ideal film, video, and voice over microphone, while its low weight (161gm./5.7oz. without battery) makes it an ideal boom microphone.
In addition to the native 20Hz-20kHz frequency response a selectable high-pass filter at 80Hz is available, which will prevent low end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.
The NTG2 operates either from a AA (1.5V) battery or P48 phantom power which can be supplied by professional cameras, audio recorders and power supplies. The battery power option makes the NTG2 ideal for scenarios where the camera does not supply phantom power such as DSLR video.
The WSVM windshield is supplied to minimise light wind noise and plosives during recording. The optional 'DeadCat' furry is recommended for outdoor applications.
The RØDE NTG2 shotgun microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

Well I was double checking something on the rode site when they had this announcement plastered over the top. From Rode website
"Important information about purchasing from Amazon in the US. RØDE Microphones does not authorize Fulfilled By Amazon. We have purchased counterfeit RØDE products using Fulfilled by Amazon and highly recommend that you only purchase RØDE products from authorised dealers. If you purchase any RØDE microphone from an unauthorized dealer via Fulfilled By Amazon you will not receive any US warranty or technical support."
Amazon gave me a refund even though I didn't have the original box and it was over 90 days after my purchase. They were great about it, but still was leery of the fact I may have spent so much money for a fake.
Today I got my mic in (ordered from B&H) and the change was noticeable. I got good levels at a much lower input level on my Zoom H4N, hiss was much less and the audio sounded fuller. I had a fake mic for sure.
Amazon did right by me, but still felt like I need to give a warning!
I love the quality of the microphone when there is no hum. It sounds pretty good. I will keep it at 3 stars until Rode return my inquiry and inform me if this is how the mic is or if there may be some defect/repair option available.
Why is one pin of the XLR connector longer than the other two? is this normal?
Yes, this is perfectly normal and is a design feature of the RØDE microphone.
The ground XLR pin (pin 1) is designed to be slightly longer than the other two pins. This is to ensure that when an XLR is plugged into the mic XLR socket the first pin that comes into contact is the ground pin. This feature is implemented in all RØDE microphones to protect the microphone circuitry from a static electricity short that could potentially damage the microphone circuitry.
It came with everything. The clip holder, for a mic stand. The USB charge cable. The Sticker.
Plus opportunity for 10 year warranty, upon proper registration. Zipper case.
The one Con: you need to plug in the mini USB into the "blind hole". While I understand the cavity protects the
mini USB, plugging it in, is awkward. Because you need to properly align the plug to the receptacle, at the bottom of the XLR plug. But this is the proper location for such a plug, and not a deal breaker,to plug It in and charge it. Then 3 green LEDS blink 1-2-3, while charging. But what a beautiful Microphone. And not overly long, unless you demand something less than 10.94 " Just under 11 inches long. The audio quality is Immortal as well. Your basically getting a $1000 microphone for about $300. Making it hands down, Best in Class.
That being said, be advised it took over hour to charge it, on my computer USB port.
I use this in conjunction with my Zoom H6 which has beautiful preamps. The sound is amazing. The quality is superb. I am super happy with this as I know how to use it 'correctly' and have gotten superior results over any other mic I've used in the past. I also use this with the RODE Blimp to cut out all wind noise.
Used correctly, this can match the NTG3 quality and results. Save the money and buy this with the RODE Blimp and still save $100

However - this microphone is superb. It's a short shotgun and despite its length it's still highly directional and will pick up sounds from pretty far away. The noise floor is low - it's good enough for most applications. It's not absolutely clean but it's more than decent enough for most applications. As ever if you need to wind in lots of gain to amplify low levels, you'll get some self-noise that you might need to EQ away but at normal levels, it's very acceptable.
Overall this is a good product at a reasonable price point. The NTG4 needs phantom power so make sure your kit can power it otherwise you'll need an outboard phantom power supply or to upgrade to NTG4+
I think one would be better off with NTG, Deity D3, and especially Synco MIC D2, and a few others (worth spending extra money).
All in all a good mic, but there are better options out there. If you do buy it, you won't regret it too much, but if you can be bothered, look for other options.
What you get is 10 years of warranty and everything that Rode as a brand stands for. You get high freq. boost (useful), low pass filter (sometimes useful) and 10dB pad (which I have no use for).
What I don't like is that there is no option to switch the battery off completely - it will turn on when the phantom power goes away and it will stay on until discharged - that is annoying.
I like that the power LED goes from green to blue when phantom power is on. The build quality is also good. So all in all, it is a great mic with good sound, but if you need great sound and don't care about other benefits, look somewhere else.
It came well packaged with a standard foam wind shield with the Rode logo printed on it and it came with a nice zipped pouch to store it in too. The Rode NTG-1 is phantom power only and the NTG-2 has the option of being battery powered. This is a pro-mic and if you're into pro video work, then this mic is essential to complement your videos. You'll need to buy the cable separately, depending on length required.
The mic lasted me 1 year and 10 months then it no longer worked. They are very delicate items, however, the do apparently have a repair service which I've not yet looked into and could do without the extra cost.
As will all microphones if you are attaching it to a boom pole as I have done handling noice gets transferred to the microphone if you do not use a a shock. With a shock mount sounds perfect. And 10 year rode warranty can't go wrong.
This is my first real good microphone and it provided clear record of my motorcycle's exhaust. For once, I didn't have to post process the audio.
