JOBY Wavo Pro, Pod & Air Announced

JOBY has announced a new lineup of flagship audio products for pro, on-the-go and desktop creators and streamers called Wavo. The new Wavo series consists of 2 new camera-mount shotgun microphones, a Lavalier microphone, a 2-person wireless system, a desktop USB microphone, and some accessory kits.

Wavo PRO Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphones

JOBY has two new Wavo PRO Camera-Mount Shotgun Microphones, these are the Wavo PRO DS and the Wavo PRO.

Both options have been designed for on-camera applications if you are using mirrorless hybrid cameras. The Wavo PRO DS and the Wavo PRO are powered via built-in rechargeable batteries, which JOBY claims can last up to 60 hours on a single charge.

Wavo PRO

Even though both the PRO DS and the PRO use the exact same audio components, the PRO comes with some additional features such as active noise cancellation and controls over EQ and other settings that can be made via a companion app. The PRO also features an external TRS input so you can input a second microphone.

The PRO also features an activatable safety track that helps you avoid distortion, and LEDs show audio levels and battery status. It has analog (3.5mm TRS) and digital (USB Type-C) outputs that make it compatible with an immense variety of recording devices. Other additional features include a three-stage gain control (0, +10, or +20 dB).
