Whether recording YouTube videos, daily vlogs, or audio for indie films, the JOBY Wavo PRO DS shotgun microphone presents a flexible, yet user-friendly solution for capturing clean and impactful speech to your camera, computer, or mobile device. Run it for up to 60 hours on the internal rechargeable battery or power it indefinitely via USB; the Wavo PRO DS 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 and bass roll-off switches for optimizing signal quality, an activatable safety track that helps you avoid distortion, and LEDs showing audio levels and battery status, the Wavo PRO DS helps you elevate the sound quality of your productions without slowing you down. Plus, its analog (3.5mm TRS) and digital (USB Type-C) outputs make it compatible with an immense variety of recording devices.

Wavo PRO DS vs Wavo PRO

The Wavo PRO DS features most of the mechanical and electronic components built into the Wavo PRO, but foregoes some advanced functions such as active noise reduction, digital app-based sound management, and an external secondary mic input to ensure simplicity for content creators who don't feel ready to dive deep into audio settings and refined adjustments, but still need a punchy, clean sound.

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.

A Simple Mic with Essential Controls

Even though the Wavo PRO DS was designed to maintain simplicity, it contains onboard switches for essential settings including a high-pass filter to reduce rumble and a three-stage gain control (0, +10, or +20 dB) that aids in getting a great recording level.

Safety Track Recording

Distortion can ruin a perfectly good take. So, the Wavo PRO DS 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 DS can run for up to 60 hours 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

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 DS is supplied with a USB Type-C cable for charging and computer connectivity, plus a foam windscreen that reduces "rustling" noise from light wind.
