Noticeable hiss.

10 October 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this as my first real-ish shotgun mic, after using the Video Mic Pro on a boompole. The VMP had no effective way to mitigate wind noise, so I got the NTG2 to use with a Blimp, which could probably withstand a hurricane.
  • Cons: Hiss

Good. Not great.

  • Excerpt: Sound is good. No power switch so you have to remove the battery when not in use between gigs. You should anyway for long storage, but it's a pain when one uses it as often as I do.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Limited Functions

Zoom NTG2

4 September 2015
  • Excerpt: From what we have seen, this is a nice mic for the price. It does lack sensitivity when used with a Zoom h4n. Recorder volume has to be at or near max. This is a preamp issue on the Zoom, however, and doesn't reflect on this mic at this price point. Good buy for the $$.
  • Pros: Clear Sound
  • Cons: Limited Gain With Zoom H4

Very good, but low gain

  • Excerpt: I have used this mic for 3+ years. I am glad I got it. It has done a great job for my company in a myriad of production environments. However, I am wanting something better. Once you realize what a GREAT shotgun mic can sound like, you will want to upgrade.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Low Gain

Eats Batteries

  • Excerpt: I've only had this thing a little while and I can't figure out why yet, but this thing absolutely eats batteries. The sound quality is great but we went through 16 batteries in 2 hours of videos using this with an H4N.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight, Versatile

Low volume with Zoom H4N via xlr Input

Andrew, B&H Photo
3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I buy this NTG-2 mic and use it with the Zoom H4N. For some reason, the output volume when using xlr input is quite a bit lower than the 3.5 mm input (i.e. low-impedance XLR output to high-impedance 1/8") Using Phantom power does help to increase the output volume.
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality

Tape needed to avoid noise

PY, B&H Photo
1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Decent shotgun mic for the price. However, you'll need to use tape (gaffer / electrical) to eliminate the noise at 3 place : - High pass filter switch needs to be covered - Battery compartment - XLR connexion
  • Pros: Cheap, Compact, Easy To Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Noise
