CORSAIR Elgato WAVE:3 Microphone Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2020-06-18

WAVE:3 is easy to set up and comes with a long-enough cable for most applications. If you are a streamer or content creator, the Wave Link application will come to help by providing a lot of virtual sources for you to work with and thanks to the included hardware 3.5mm mini Jack, you can enjoy lag-free monitoring with your favorite headphones. WAVE:3 does also provide a nice white LED display in front, for easily modifying the current settings via the dial, while the Mute button can be accessed in an instant, given its capacitive nature.
