According to RØDE, the system comes in two parts. First, there’s the receiver, which it calls RX. Then, there’s the transmitter, which it calls TX. The two parts work together to create tons of quality sound in a package that’s super tiny.
The receiver is incredibly tiny, measuring only 44mm x 45.3mm x 18.5mm and weighing just 31g. The transmitter is similar in size, coming in with dimensions of 44mm x 46.4mm x 18.5mm and weighing just 31g.
It can serve as a quick and easy clip-on microphone with its built-in omnidirectional condenser capsule, or it can act as a tiny wireless transmitter for a lavalier microphone.
The transmitter is meant to be easy to carry around since it’s so tiny. When compared to most other transmitters on the market, it’s absolutely tiny. It’s designed to sit on a camera’s shoe mount or clip onto an article of clothing, which makes it quite versatile for a wide range of shooting situations.
