Design and features

With its black, matte finish, you can’t help but fall in love with this sophisticated microphone. The Wave:3 comes with a built-in stand with a padded base. While it has a steel grille, a portion of the mic is made out of plastic which makes it lightweight and portable.

On the front side of the mic is a multi-functional button for adjusting the mic or audio mix, headphone volume, etc. This can be seen through the LED lights on the face of the Wave:3. The back has a USB-C plug and a 3.5mm headphone output while up top is a capacitive mute button that silently disengages mic input.

Inside the Wave:3 is a condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern and a pop filter to make sure that no unnecessary sound would be captured in the audio. The mic has a 24-bit resolution and a maximum sample rate of 96kHz, which provides that crystal clear sound. For moments where you get a little bit excited, Wave:3 soothes the sound waves with its Clipguard technology that only allows a maximum of 115 decibels. This prevents the fluctuation of the volume while streaming or recording.

The mic also comes with a software called Wave Link for audio control. It can accommodate up to 9 audio channels, making a recording or mixing a live stream of one’s voice blend with any background music or sound effects easier. If you’re planning to invest in good streaming gear, the Wave:3 will definitely give you more bang for your buck at $159.99.
