Elgato Wave:3
Elgato fleshes out its streaming range with a great USB mic

SINCE CORSAIR ACQUIRED the Elgato brand back in 2018 (yikes, that feels like a long time ago now), it’s been slowly expanding the options for would-be streamers. We imagine trade has been strong recently, as more people have sought to make some cash while confined to their homes as a pandemic ravaged the outside world. Starting with Elgato’s original selection of docks and capture cards, Corsair expanded into streaming decks, lighting, and even green screens. The Wave:3—one of Elgato’s two shiny new microphones—was the next logical step.

Yes, that’s how it’s stylized. Not the Wave 3, or the Wave: 3. This microphone has demanded that we repeatedly print the :3 emoji all over this page of Maximum PC, and we’re furious about it. But weird punctuation aside, this is a serious addition to Elgato’s streamercentric selection, whether you’re an aspiring Twitch gamer or an educational talk streamer.
