Elgato Wave:1 Microphone Review
Peter Donnell / 2 weeks ago
Packaging & Specifications
The specifications of the Wave 1 are pretty decent, offering a 17mm Electret microphone with a 70-20000 Hz frequency response. It runs at a 28-bit resolution with a 48 kHz sample rate. Honestly, it should sound pretty fantastic just based on that alone. However, I suspect it’ll be the trick software that will give it the edge on the competition.
The box is nicely designed, compact and durable. It’s pretty heavy too, albeit I suspect that’s mostly the microphone.
Around the back, you can see a little bit of a teaser on the mixing software as well as a few features of the microphone. It’s nothing we haven’t covered so far though.
In the box, you’ll find… A BOX!
In the box in a box, you’ll find a bag, and ANOTHER BOX!
In the bag and box in the box and a box, you’ll find… A MICROPHONE AND CABLE. It’s very well packaged and honestly, I think Elgato could ease up on the use of materials here.
