Great video mic
Andrew NeroH, 04.11.2017
Very easy to use. Just pop an AA battery inside, and it'll last weeks without needing a change.
I found this mic to be a little too sensitive when recording outside and you wish to avoid parasite sounds. I didn't find it as directional as I wanted it to be, but it didn't stop me from getting the results I wanted from it.
It sounds clean as hell for inside scenes and it captures transients perfectly. I'd buy it all over again and would recommend it if you need to work on a film project.
Again, a great product from Rode.

Amazing microphone
G-Evans, 28.04.2018
Even though its not the top of the line model rode do in terms of shotgun microphones, i was amazed how good this micophone is.

Paired with the zoom h6, and a rode boom pole this is great for audio recording. It can pick up even the faintest whipser from where you are aiming while not picking up much sound from elsewhere. I can barely hear any noise floor with the microphone, and the range you can get out of it is amazing. You just have to be careful to not forget you've set it for picking up very quiet sounds and nearly deafen yourself when you make a noise.

Foam cover doesn an okay job at cancelling wind noise but deadcat addition is useful for if you need to use the mic where you have harsh outdoor conditions.

Very good
jodolittle, 15.12.2020
I've got a number of Rode mics as well as a number of others from other manufacturers (Shure, Sennheiser, Marantz and others). In general, the Rodes are a great mic, although some of the technical refinements built into the sennheiser are not as well developed in the Rodes. But then, I payed 5x time price for the Sennheiser, which I dont regret. Where the Sennheiser 8070 stands out is its telescope like pick-up and isolation of sound at very long distances coupled with high tolerance to all sorts of climatic conditions - eg storms. In any but those extreme conditions, the Rodes would be my go-to choice. In other words, the price-performance balance of the Rode is extremely attractive.

Excellent Shotgun mic for the price
Jay237921, 14.06.2018
I purchased the Rode NTG 2 from Thomann a while ago. I have been using this microphone for my location recordings, dialogue, and foley as well as sound effects recordings. The built quality of this microphone is really robust and solid which makes it durable. I can say it's a great mic at a good price, the phantom?powered NTG2 is moisture resistant, robust and known for balanced sound and good value. There is a hi-pass filter switch which you might find useful if you are recording on location and want to filter out unwanted frequencies.
In a nutshell, this is a great microphone wich decent performance for the price. I recommend buying this microphone.
