Overview

Super-quiet and very versatile!

The RØDE K2 is a premium valve condenser microphone featuring dual 1” gold-sputtered diaphragms. Infinitely variable control of the polar pattern from omnidirectional through cardioid and bidirectional/figure-8 provides the freedom and flexibility to excel in any recording situation.

High-performance specifications (including a maximum SPL of 162dB) are combined with the character and subtleties of the legendary mics of the 1950s to provide a microphone that not only provides world-class vocals, but is perfectly at home recording a wide range of instruments both up close or in a wider "room" capacity.

The RØDE K2 microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry-leading 10-year warranty.
