Rode NTG-2 Battery or Phantom Powered Condenser Mic Review

Condenser Shotgun Microphone

Rode NTG-2 Battery or Phantom Powered Condenser Mic is a lightweight shotgun condenser mic which offers professional quality audio recording both indoors and outdoors. It also offers clean and clear audio output.

It can produce an annoying humming sound at high volume. The mic tends to pick up handling noise as well. It is important to have the mic at the right distance: too far and it won’t pick up sound well; too close and the sound will be too muddy. Also the battery life is not great.

While the mic is durable, yet lightweight and easy to use with decent audio, it has a problem with bass in a loud environment. As a shotgun mic it is not bad at all and gives reasonably natural sound. It also has a super-cardioid pick-up pattern.
