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.

JOBY WAVO PRO Reviews

Great sound, worth the price

By Ayn
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-17

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!

Great for price point

This is a great compact shotgun. I was impressed with how lightweight it is, that really makes a difference when you start adding all your accessories to shoot, cage, lenses, monitors etc. It's beginner friendly and is perfect for content creators/self-shooters to take their sound level up.

Pretty Good Quality

By Danielle Eliska

When I first took the Joby out of the box, I was surprised by how light it was. I ran a few tests with the mic before deciding to take it on a shoot-one with background sound and one without. I feel like this mic does a pretty good job condensing background noise, but there will be a slight hiss underneath the test recordings-a little too much for my taste. I downloaded the Joby Wavo Pro app (use Bluetooth to connect) and played around with equalizer, but the hiss was still present. It was the same in a quiet setting. BUT, if you play with it in an audio program, you may be able to damp it down even more. I would say don't make a habit of doing it in post. Try to find ways to make the mic work for you in production or find another mic to suit your needs. The mic charges pretty quick and holds a good charge. I went out filming twice on two different occasions for tests and made sure it was fully charged. Overall, it gets the job done. It's affordable, light weight, compact and easy to rig up. Nothing complicated at all. Depending on your sets needs, you can def use this for any personal creative content work. If you're hired for a gig, I'd go in another direction.

Amazing sound quality!

I love how compact and efficient this mic is. I was able to pick up incredible sound without all the background noise in various settings. I can't wait to get filming on future projects with this product. I definitely would suggest to anyone who is in production to give it a try!

Disappointing Mic

By Kyle

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!

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.
