Elgato Launches Wave DX Dynamic Gaming Microphone

Elgato, a leading provider of hardware and software for content creators, today announced the launch of Wave DX. A premium XLR microphone with proven dynamic capsule technology, designed in close collaboration with Lewitt Audio, Wave DX works with any XLR preamp or audio interface to produce studio-quality sound right out of the box.

Built from the ground up to reproduce accurate vocals without colouration, Wave DX captures pure audio to make it easier than ever for creators to shape their sonic signature with effects and EQ. The wide cardioid polar pattern picks up lifelike lows and detailed highs and suppresses unwanted background noise. An internal pop filter reduces pops and hiss caused by plosive speech sounds, while the steel construction reduces internal noise artifacts and protects the capsule. A removable logo can be mounted to the left or right of the mic and rotated to look straight on the camera, while the included mono mount prevents a connected XLR cable from jamming.

“After the groundbreaking release of Wave:3, we wanted to create a high-quality yet accessible dynamic microphone that sounds incredible,” said Julian Fest, SVP and GM of Elgato. “Because it’s an analog microphone, Wave DX fits into any XLR setup. But plug it into the Elgato Wave XLR interface and you have a complete broadcast setup powered by Wave Link mixing software, VST audio effects and Stream Deck control, bringing your entire streaming or podcasting setup together. It is this mutual compatibility that makes the Elgato ecosystem so powerful, and we are excited to expand our audio lineup with Wave DX.”

Combined with the Wave XLR microphone interface (available as a bundle at elgato.com), Wave DX integrates with Elgato’s powerful Wave Link software mixer, allowing creators to mix their microphone feed with multiple audio sources, create submixes and create third-party VST effects, including EQ, compression or reverb. Makers with GeForce RTX GPUs can also take advantage of NVIDIA Broadcast integration, which enables AI-powered noise and room echo cancellation effects that dramatically improve audio quality. Like all Elgato software, Wave Link integrates perfectly with Stream Deck to give you instant, tactile control over your entire audio workflow. Wave XLR also makes controlling Wave DX easy thanks to a silent capacitive mute button and multifunction rotary knob, while Elgato’s acclaimed Clipguard technology prevents sound distortion when the input level peaks.

Investing in a new broadcasting setup can be a challenge. To make things easier, Elgato offers special launch bundles that include the full XLR experience so you can get started right away: Wave DX, Wave XLR, Wave Mic Arm and an Elgato XLR cable.

Whether you’re just starting out or looking to upgrade, Wave DX allows you to sound professional and turn your setup into a powerful broadcast studio.

Elgato Wave DX is readily available through the Elgato and CORSAIR global network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Elgato Wave DX is backed by a two-year warranty and CORSAIR & Elgato’s worldwide customer service and technical support network.
