Packed with special options such as active noise reduction, a secondary mic input for interviews, and app-based sound management from your smartphone, the JOBY Wavo PRO shotgun microphone presents an advanced and highly flexible solution for capturing clean and impactful speech to your camera, computer, or mobile device, whether you record YouTube videos, daily vlogs, or audio for indie films. Run it for up to 60 hours on the internal rechargeable battery or power it indefinitely via USB; the Wavo PRO can easily hang for a week's worth of shoots and still have plenty of operating time left before a recharge is needed.

With many pro-level features such as gain, pads, filters, and parametric EQ (all accessible via the companion app), an activatable safety track that helps you avoid distortion, and LEDs showing audio levels and battery status, the Wavo PRO helps you elevate the sound quality of your productions without slowing you down or requiring additional processing in postproduction. Plus, its analog (3.5mm TRS) and digital (USB Type-C) outputs make it compatible with an immense variety of recording devices.

Wavo PRO vs Wavo PRO DS

The Wavo PRO features most of the mechanical and electronic components built into the Wavo PRO DS, and adds some advanced functions such as active noise reduction, digital app-based sound management, and an external secondary mic input. This not only gives content creators a clean and punchy sound, but also let's them dive deep into audio settings and refined adjustments.

Built for Demanding Creators

The compact shape and aluminum construction testify the JOBY ambition to provide premium products for the most demanding creators, to match high-end mirrorless cameras with functional, performing, and well-built accessories.

App-Based Sound Management

The dedicated Wavo PRO app (iOS and Android) offers full control and remote monitoring of your sound from your smartphone. Dual mode EQ appeals to both entry-level and pro users, and settings—parametric EQ, pads, filters, and more)—can be customized and shared with others.

Active Noise Reduction

ANR (active noise reduction) technology done with onboard processing cleans sound on the go. This special function removes self-generated structural noise from the mic, yielding a more professional sound.

Secondary Mic Input

The side-panel 3.5mm input lets you add an external mic (in stereo mode) such as the separately available Wavo Lav PRO, creating an ideal interview setup with one lapel mic and one shotgun mic recorded to separate channels on the same device.

Onboard Gain Adjustment

A three-stage gain control (0, +10, or +20 dB) aids in getting a great recording level to any camera.

Safety Track Recording

Distortion can ruin a perfectly good take. So, the Wavo PRO provides an activatable safety track mode. Ideal when recording two channels (left and right) on your device, the safety track mode routes a duplicate of the main mic signal at -10 dB to one of the channels. Even if the main channel distorts, the secondary channel will be clean.

USB or Battery Powered

Forget about changing batteries. The Wavo PRO can run for up to 60 hours (50 hours with active noise reduction engaged) on its internal USB-rechargeable battery. Alternatively, it can be powered via a USB connection to a power bank or laptop computer.

Analog and Digital Outputs

Connect the mic's traditional 3.5mm TRS analog output to the mic input of your camera, DSLR, or camcorder using the supplied TRS cable. Or use the USB Type-C digital output when you want to record straight to a computer or mobile device equipped with a corresponding USB Type-C port.

Rycote Lyre Shockmount

A high-performing Rycote Lyre shockmount absorbs vibration from stand/pole/camera handling to produce a clean, broadcast-ready sound.

Included Accessories

In addition to the 3.5mm TRS camera cable, the Wavo PRO is supplied with a USB Type-C cable for charging and computer connectivity, a foam windscreen that reduces "rustling" noise from light wind, and a furry windshield for outdoor wind protection.

[I received this product in exchange for my honest review.] As a tech and cameras lover, I am always looking for different things that help improve my day to day with cameras, and this shotgun mic exceeded all my expectations! The lightweight, the sound quality, the noise cancellation all are high points in what makes this microphone so great! I will definitely be using it in my future projects/vlogs!

JOBY TAKE THE WHEEL!!

[I received this product in exchange for my honest review.] So I finally decided to take the next step within my Content Creating journey and got myself this fine tuned machine. This upgrade is definitely worth it. It has a sleek yet sturdy build to it which adds extra flavor to your camera. Plenty of accessories are included which equips you for all scenarios. One of my favorite features are the GREEN Light ON/RECORDING indicators located in the front and back of this unit. Having that the reassurance of knowing that when that Green Glows, it means you're good to go! Finally, I had to mention it's impressive NOISE CANCELLATION feature! The importance of a feature like this to someone who creates content in the hustle and bustle Manhattan arena is undeniable. JOBY has knocked it out the park with this one!

Great sound, worth the price

I received this product in exchange for my honest review. I am a news reporter and was looking for a shotgun mic for my outdoor recording in NYC (tons of street noise!) Even though the JOBY Shotgun was in the higher range of my budget, I wanted to give it a go, mainly to test the noise reduction feature. (I wasn't satisfied with the different mic one I previously owned) After using it for a couple of weeks, I think it is worth the high price since it does a fantastic job with noise reduction, and a great quilty too!

Disappointing Mic

I bought this for the smaller form-factor and potential of being better than my past Rode mic, but this mic was a huge disappointment. It would randomly run out of charge w/o any warning, and after a week of use it started getting major cracking & popping while recording. I was hopeful on this product, but it's garbage. Going back to Rode.

5 stars for this shotgun mic

Wow! This microphone really exceeded my expectations. The noise reduction is a game changer from my previous microphone. Especially since I love to volg outside. It's always been challenging trying to reduce any sort of low frequency sound, but the ANR solved this issue. Also the compact size and sterdy feel is amazing considering I like to travel light. I'm super excited to use it at my next gig!

Avoid this product and go with something else...

By Matthew

Where to start. I bought this product 2 months ago and have been giving it my honest try and there are too many critical things that I cannot overlook to recommend it. Here are the cons: 1) Faint clicking noise in the audio recordings: I have tried two cameras with multiple gain settings (GH5ii/ZV1) adjusting the onboard camera gain settings and the mic itself (ANR active/inactive) and I can't get it to go away. If it weren't for this I could stomach the other shortcomings but clean audio should be priority number one. 2) Sometimes mic wont turn on: There are some instances where I found that the mic will straight up not turn on. I have found that the auto on/off feature that turns the mic on/off when the camera power is on/off is the culprit. If you cant turn your mic on with this enabled you have to plug in the mic and charge it and turn on the mic from there to get it working again. I encountered this issue shooting in the field and the mic was rendered useless for that shoot. Now I am left just leaving the auto on/off feature completely disabled to avoid this issue. 3) Bluetooth connectivity is awful: A lot of the video reviews that are still up mention bluetooth connectivity being finicky. I thought maybe it was user error but for the life of me I cannot get the phone app to connect to the mic. It will maybe connect after 5 times if I am lucky. This is the only way to turn on/off the active noise cancellation. I will try resetting my phone, turning bluetooth on and off on my phone, turning the mic on and off and then turning on bluetooth. For a million dollars I could not even say I could make this mic connect two my phone two times in a row successfully. There are some pros after all of this but these should not matter due to the fact the first 3 issues make this product un-buyable but here they are. The sound is actually decent (sans faint clicking), I like that you can input another audio source via 3.5mm jack and record on the second channel (main reason why I bought this mic), and the battery from what I can tell lasts a decent while. Other than that go with something else.

Great for outdoor use!

I recently started to record a Pilates and wellness vlog so I can upload them to youtube. I got a DSLR camera for it, but the sound quality from the camera sounded far and pretty noisy since I do teh vlog mostly outdoor. Adding the JOBY shotgun mic fixed it! My voice sounds even and smooth. I wish that mic was good for an iPhone too ( I received this product in exchange for my honest review) Adding the JOBY shotgun mic fixed it!

Is there any information who helped JOBY to develop the mic since they are not famous for making sound gear previously?
Asked by: Sergey
JOBY can now count on a variety of sister companies, recently acquired that strongly empower our technology potential and know how. In particular, Rycote has been a key R&D partner in developing ANR, but they do not use this technology for their products. It is JOBY co-developed with Rycote.
