Since Corsair owns Elgato, you can often find good deals on Elgato's products through the Corsair website. For example, today you can get the Elgato Wave:3 USB condenser microphone on sale for a new low of $59.99 as a refurbished device. That's a huge discount compared to the new version of the mic, which is currently going for $150 on Amazon and only drops to around $120 when it does go on sale. This price is even better than a deal we shared a couple weeks ago when Corsair had the refurb Wave:3 on sale for around $72. This deal includes free shipping even though ordering from Corsair usually requires a $79 minimum for that, and it is also covered by a 90-day warranty as a refurb product.
Jez Corden reviewed the Wave:3 mic and gave it 4 out of 5 stars with a Recommended badge. He said, "Elgato's first foray into condenser microphones is an impressive one, sporting great sound and built-in production features well-worth checking out."
With the Wave:3 you get a condenser capsule that has a tight cardioid polar pattern, which is really important for content creators. That cardioid pattern is great for picking up speech while also negating sounds coming from directly behind it. The tighter the pattern the more focused it is on your speech instead of the clicky clack of your keyboard or sounds coming from your speakers.
You can even load up the Wave Link app and get some advanced controls for your new mic along with seven other audio sources. You can even create two independent mixes. Elgato's proprietary Clipguard tech prevents distortion, too, and helps you sound great all the time.
