When you think of Joby, you might think of the company’s tripod products, such as the GorillaPod which gained a lot of fame thanks to vloggers who appreciated the tripod’s ability to wrap its legs around objects for better angles, perspectives, and so on. However, it seems that Joby is expanding its product lineup with new microphones.
The company has announced a handful of new products that include the Joby Wavo Pod, the Wavo Pro, and the Wavo Air. Starting with the Wavo Pod, this is a microphone that seem to be targeting users who are looking to create their own podcasts or stream and might be looking at other microphones like the Blue Yeti or the Rode NT-USB.
It features an upright design with support for a boom arm, and offers 24-bit/48KHz sampling and comes in at $100, making it a more affordable alternative. Then there is the Wavo Pro which also has a Wavo Pro DS variant. This is a microphone aimed at mirrorless camera users and can attach to a camera via the hot shoe mount.
It supports a secondary 3.5mm mic input and visual monitoring through an accompanying iOS and Android app and is priced at $300. Last but not least is the Wavo Air, a $250 pair of 2.4GHz wireless lavalier microphones with a pair of transmitters for users who want to be able to record and stream audio without having to deal with cables or wires.
