While WayV’s performance was undeniably impressive, fans’ attention was captured by another intriguing detail. On social media platforms such as X (formerly Twitter), images of the boys waterproofing their microphones at Waterbomb went viral. It was soon noted by netizens that the covers used on WayV’s microphones were actually condoms. This topic quickly spread across online community forums.


Since Waterbomb is a water music festival, it appears the staff members of SM Entertainment chose to protect the equipment by wrapping the microphones with condoms. This revelation amused fans and caused some to blush.


However, this practice is not uncommon in the music industry. In fact, many artists use this method. In addition to preparing waterproof gear, crews often take extra precautions. Using condoms is one of the simplest ways to safeguard electronic devices when they are exposed to constant splashing during a performance. This also ensures the safety of the artists, as it prevents any direct contact with the device in case of an electrical leak.
