Review: Elgato's NEW Wave Microphones

Elgato recently announced their entry into the Microphone world with two new microphones: The Wave:1 and Wave:3.

Designed with professional Lewitt Audio technology, both microphones boast a number of leading edge, audio technology combined with Elgato's Wave Link software and integration with the Stream Deck.

I received both of these microphones to test and compared them against similarly priced microphones to gauge the difference. I put all my thoughts, along with a detailed test of their new Wave Link software, in this weeks video.

One of the oldest games is also one of the fastest-growing on Twitch. Chess is quickly rising in popularity due to 5x US champion, Hikaru Nakamura, coaching some popular streamers.
