Why settle for crappy audio? To complement its line of Gorillapods and other mounting devices, Joby now sells high-end microphones for shooting video, podcasting, or performing interviews. Some of these mics are quite customizable, while others are more plug-and-play.
First up is the Wavo PRO, Joby’s flagship camera microphone. At $300, it features onboard noise reduction, a dedicated sound management app, front and back LEDs for level monitoring, and an additional mic input that’s perfect for handheld or shotgun microphones.
Joby is also offering the mid-range Wavo PRO DS shotgun mic, which costs a respectable $250 and features integrated audio level LEDs, plus a simple plug-and-play design. And then there’s the $250 Wavo AIR, a wireless microphone kit for when you need to sit in front of the camera (Wavo AIR comes with two lavaliere mics and a wireless connector).
For audio streamers, Joby now offers the Wavo POD. It’s a $100 large-diaphragm USB-C condenser mic with a headphone monitoring jack, a free pop filter, and a mountable design for boom arms or GorillaPods.
And when it’s time to run an interview, Joby now sells a Wavo Lav PRO wired lavaliere mic. It features an integrated windscreen, a long 3.5mm connector (perfect for pairing with the Wavo PRO camera mic), and a magnetic clip design.
Joby’s new microphones are now available on the company’s website. I should note that these aren’t the most affordable camera, podcasting, or interview mics around, so you may want to wait for the reviews to come in before you pull the trigger.
Joby now sells budget, mid-range, and high-end microphones for shooting video, streaming, or conducting interviews.
