Reg. $90+ $70

Amazon is now offering the Elgato Wave:1 Cardioid USB Condenser Microphone for $69.99 shipped. Regularly $99 on Amazon and $90 directly from Elgato these days, this model started life closer to $130 and is now matching the Amazon all-time low we last tracked during the Prime Day festivities. It features a condenser capsule with cardioid polar pattern designed to focus in on the voice directly in front of it alongside 24-bit/48kHz digital analog conversion and the brand’s proprietary Clipguard tech to protect your recordings from harsh distortion. It comes along with a desktop stand and a boom arm adapter as well as access to the Wave Link app that includes control over eight other audio sources and features 2 independent mix paths.
