— Isn’t this the best audio test

that you’ve ever seen in your life, Kyle?

Come on!

Having a wireless audio
solution when creating videos

is arguably the most convenient
way to capture audio,

because you’re not using any cables,

you simply plug it in and go.

But with its convenience,

oftentimes came the cost.

And when getting a
wireless audio solution,

it usually costed a pretty penny.

That’s why when the Rode
Wireless GO came out,

it was really cool,

’cause at $200 you were able
to get quality wireless audio

that you could rely on.

However,

Deity has now made their version
of a wireless lav solution

that is cost effective and feature packed.

That’s why in this video,

we’ll be putting them head to head

to see how they sound in
comparison to each other,

the price, what you get in the bag,

as well as its features,

to see which one you should go with

when leveling up your
audio solution, let’s go.

You gotta just press record.

Hey, what’s up?

It’s Omar El-Takrori with Think Media,

and this channel is
all about the best tips

and tools to help grow your
influence using online video.

And so we talk about what
is the best gear to do so

whether it’s audio visual or lighting,

as well as some strategy

to help grow your YouTube
influence as well.

So if you’re interested,

make sure to hit that subscribe button,

but let’s jump right into some tests.

So now we’re going to do
a more real life test.

And I got both mics going at the same time

and important to note that
whatever mic I’m using,

you will see at the bottom of the screen.

But I definitely wanted
to do like a one take

different scenario thing.

So right now there’s a slight
breeze going on outside.

You know,

Kyle is filming on the camera

and let me know what you think

it sounds like in comparison.

Also, I don’t,

I have the lavaliere use
because I think that that’s

what Deity wants you to use.

Granted, they include it in the case.

And so this is the audio
test of the lavaliere mic.

In this scenario,

you can notice how like the
Rode is just a lot more bigger,

but you know,

if you’re outside and
you’re doing outside stuff,

because that’s what outside people do,

this might be something you
might want, you know, there’s,

there’s an AC unit going kind
of a couple of houses down,

but this is what it sounds
like outside in a backyard.

And we’re just gonna walk on in.

Maybe you do real estate,

maybe you’re doing walkthroughs of things,

but this is what it sounds like

in a kitchen slash living space.

And so we got it going.

This is, there’s a fan going right now.

I don’t know if that’ll affect the audio,

but now I’m pretty, I’m
pretty far away from Kyle,

maybe like 20 feet or so,

but this is what we’re getting
in a situation like this.

If you’re a solo creator
and there was a loud car

that just ran by,

what is this like a frigging people,

wind blowing at 2:00 PM in the afternoon,

but real life tests.

So there’s a guy running. What is that?

A leaf blower? — [Cameraman
Kyle] a motorcycle or something?

— A motorcycle or go-ped
who has go-peds nowadays?

There’s actually an echo-y room

that doesn’t have much furniture.

So let’s see how it does with echo.

But like I said, if you’re
in real estate or something,

this could be great,

but this is a good test
that might benefit you.

So very echo-y living space,

and so this is what it
sounds like on the Deity mic

in a fairly echo-y area.

And this is how it sounds
with the Rode Wireless GO one,

in a fairly echo-y area.

But this is a more real life test.

I want to do one more test
that I think will be fun,

because I’ll do a test

that actually requires
a little more action.

We’re going to go to the golf range,

and we’re going to hit some
golf balls. Let’s get it.

All right. If you didn’t
know, I, as of late,

I have taken up golf.

We may not be in a golf, at a golf range,

but Kyle’s backyard got
a nice little turf spot,

but we’re switching between
the two mics and I just wanted

to do something with movement.

I might even do some burpees
cause if you’re into fitness

and things like that,

but I’m going to grab
me a nice little wedge,

because we wanna, we want to
get some real life tests here.

So I’m gonna, I’m gonna swing.

You can see the mic at
the bottom of the screen,

judge my form if you golf.

That went into the neighbor’s
yard, but whatever.

Alright, next mic test.

And you can see here,

the way it clips on the Rode
is kind of like impractical,

which I love the lav for that reason,

but let’s see how this mic sounds,

when I hit and do some movements.

That one stayed in with the
twirl. I dropped the club.

Now, I’m ready to do
some freaking burpees,

because maybe you’re into
fitness or maybe you dance.

And maybe you want to
do like Tik Tok stuff

where you want to be
like, yo, check me out.

We’re going to do burpees.

So now I’m just going to do five burpees.

And then we’re just going
to switch the audio,

so that you can get…

isn’t this the best audio tests

that you’ve ever seen in
your life, Kyle? Come on.

So that is an audio test of some movement,

if you’re ever in Vegas, let’s go golfing.

Now, if you haven’t
shared your thoughts yet,

let me know down in the comments,

what you thought between these two

and be sure to check out

the links down in the description below.

If you want to look at more features

in regards to these mics,

you can check those out.

The Rode Wireless GO comes in at $200,

and the Deity Pocket
Wireless comes in at $170.

So it is $30 cheaper to go with the Deity.

And these do both come in black and white.

Now, although the Deity is $30 cheaper,

you’re actually going to get more hardware

and things with the mic itself,

which is really on a value standpoint,

murders the Road Wireless GO.

Because when you buy the Deity at $170,

you’re going to get the
mic, two different cables,

one USB-C to USB-C as well
as a USB-C to 3.5 millimeter,

which allows you to also
use with a smartphone,

which is super nice.

You’re going to get a nice,

hard carrying case to put it all in,

a USB cable to charge,

a deadcat to put on top of the lav

to protect it from wind.

And you also get a lav

as well that you could clip on your shirt.

And so, although you can use
this lav mic all by itself,

the fact that they actually
included a lav in the kit

really blows this out of the value water.

Because the Road Wireless GO at $200,

doesn’t come with much.

It comes with a soft carrying case,

USB charging cables, and
a deadcat. And that’s it.

And then if you wanted to
do anything else with this,

you’re just going to
have to accessorize it

and pay extra money
for all the things that

Deity includes in the package.

It’s also important to note

that if you are a smartphone creator,

that they actually have a mobile kit

that comes with a little stand

as well as a phone
clamp that holds the mic

and you can use it as a
shotgun or wireless mic,

but that comes in at $200.

So legit,

if you really wanted
to just get everything

all in one package,

the Pocket Wireless Mobile Kit

is incredible for the value at $200.

So as far as the value department,

when it comes to comparing these mics,

the Deity definitely takes the cake,

because what an incredible price point

for a wireless audio solution

and you get the fricking lav, bro.

Now I do want to make a notable mention

that the Rode Wireless
GO II has been released

and does have incredible features

like the ability to use this as a USB mic.

However, the road wireless
GO II comes in at $300

and does have some
features that might offset

what you get with the Deity.

We have a video on the Rode Wireless GO II

if you want to check that out,

but because they’re so similar in price,

it just makes sense to compare these two.

Now let’s talk about some
similarities and differences

between these two mics.

Both do have a 3.5 millimeter input.

However, the Deity Pocket
Wireless has a screw adapter,

which definitely makes it more secure

when you lock in a lavaliere solution

and is a pretty cool pro feature,

in my opinion, for something
that is fairly affordable.

But the Rode Wireless Go
does not have that option.

And so if there’s any tension pulled,

you could disconnect the mic.

And I know this has happened
for a lot of creators,

as well as ourselves here at Think Media,

that has happened once before,

because I don’t like putting
this mic on my shirt.

It’s really big.

And even though the Deity
is a little bit smaller,

it’s just nice to clip
a lav on your shirt,

as opposed to these thick little guys

that can clip on your shirt.

Some people do it,

but I would just prefer to
use a lavaliere solution.

The Rode does have a longer
battery life up to seven hours,

where the Deity has a
five hour battery life.

However, the Deity does charge
up faster than the Rode,

and so to get a complete
charge on the Deity,

it’s a little bit more than half the time

it takes to get the Rode fully charged,

which is cool to know.

They both take USB-C to charge,

which is nice and convenient

and both receivers have display screens.

However, I do like that
Deity added this nice little

quirky feature where
you can flip the screen.

So depending on how you
Mount this onto your camera

or whatever device,

you can flip it so that
it’s readable regardless

of what side you are on the mic.

Now, as far as performance goes,

you’re going to get very similar results

being that they both have a
frequency type of 2.5 gigahertz

and a range of about give
or take 65 to 70 meters,

with the Rode being more closer to 70

and the Deity being closer to 65.

But either way,

these are both great mics to use

as wireless audio solutions.

And I think they’re
also beginner friendly,

because they’re both plug and
play options in regards to

just being able to turn them on,

clip them on your shirts and
then start recording videos.

Now I think hands down, just on paper,

Deity knocked it out of
the park with this mic.

And if I were to choose between the two,

I would just go with the Deity

because of all that
you get in the package,

the ability to use this
as a USB mic, you know,

if you’re doing live
streams or zoom calls,

you’re just getting a mic
that you can do a lot with,

when many of these features are unlocked

on the Rode Wireless GO II,
which is a hundred dollars more,

but you still don’t get the lav,

you still don’t get the nice carrying case

and things like that.

And so I really think Deity

knocked it out of the park with this,

and their Mobile Wireless
Kit for just $30 more,

I think is very competitive because

you’re getting everything you need

if you’re a smartphone creator,

but if you’re going to use a mirrorless

or DSLR to capture your video,

you could still use the
same mic kit that comes

in the mobile kit for that reason.

I just love when brands think
about the creator journey,

because we want people to
invest in lighting and mics

and gear that lasts,

especially with how fast
things are being upgraded,

but something like this will
last you years and years

and years, if you just pay the
upfront cost of 170 or $200,

which I think is just super cool.

And so shout out to Deity for making this,

I would consider it the
Rode Wireless GO killer.

In my opinion, specifically the
Rode Wireless GO one killer.

But I would love to know
your thoughts on this mic

and how it compares to
the Rode Wireless GO.

And if you want to check
out the review video we did

on the Rode Wireless GO II,

which I believe is a different
mic because of its features.

And you can check that out by clicking

or tapping the screen.

And I can’t wait to see you
in a future video, peace!
