Very satisfied despite skepticism

Paul3364, 12.04.2015
I am YouTuber and bought me the microphone to have a good sound in videos. But I was surprised. The sound is very good and therefore, it is a bit more bass, everything sounds even more pleasant. But do not be frightened. It is not just bass, no ... It also has a good center and nice height and what convinces me that it is not so a quiet (ultrasound) at the recordings where, if one has sensitive ears has such an unpleasant beep.
Depending on the use, the noise is even completely gone. I have already spoken at 36 ° in the shade people from 6 meters away and it sounded still clear and comprehensible, and the Nebengeräusche have not noticeably disturbed despite the distance.

I take with the Zoom H4n and an XLR cable on and in Stamina mode one can also record very long (at least 5 hours). The handling is simple but I still had to exercise in the correct volume to take, since one sings a light rustling. But it does not really matter. And in a video is not noticeable, since the television loudspeaker itself just as loudly rushing;) with good headphones and loudspeakers you can hear it already more clearly but everything in the normal range.

The Death Cat is not particularly expensive, but until now it has failed only once in strong wind at sea. But it did not sound, much more the wind blowing into the microphone swallowed my words, but you could understand me.

I have times looked as the option with the battery is and I must say if one with an XLR -> jack on a mobile phone wants and a battery in the micro, then one can make with good sound.

For music the micro is also not GOOD very well but it can already keep up, especially since it does not take any smack of the mouth when opening, one has in the singing already a finished song without noise noise.

Conclusion:
+ Price performance is so good at this microphone that you really can not complain for the good sound.
+ It weighs nothing and the processing is really top.
+ You do not have to use 48 Volt to take up with the micro.
+ Noise is not heard depending on the application.
+ It still works at hot and cold temperatures.
+++ distance: I can hear from the 5th floor with the Zoom H4n to 100% volume the people on the street talking. Sure, since noise rustles it loud, but that it so far so precise works is really 3+ points worth: D

- No switch, so battery out if one uses one.
- Use only with a spider, you can hear all that is connected to the micro.

+/- The high pass filter did not show me any difference and I would not know what I need it, too


Clear purchase recommendation for amateur and amateur filmmakers! I would also use it as a professional to save 500EUR;)

Cheapest Richtmikro, which one can recommend

beiti, 05.11.2011
I use the NTG-2 mainly for Videoton with Mikrostativ or Angel. Compared to a t.bone EM9600 it is better by lengths; The sound is more balanced and it rushes considerably less. The very high output level also allows low-noise recordings with consumer camcorders, whose microphone preamplifiers are often not the best. However, the NTG-2 is too large and heavy to be mounted sensibly on today's usual 400-gram camcorders; It will be used separately.

Significantly more expensive directional microphones like the NTG-3 sound above all in the heights even more finer, but with the NTG-2 it can already get along well. In this price class it is unrivaled.
