Company's pro audio division used its AES booth to show off three new mic prototypes designed for professional studio and home recording applications.

Sony Electronics’ Pro Audio Division used its AES booth #848 to show off three new Hi-Resolution microphone prototypes.

Designed for professional studio and home recording applications, the new hi-res mics are capable of extended frequency response to 50kHz.

The side address mic, C-100 is optimised for vocal use, while the two end address models (one cardioid: ECM-100U and one omnidirectional: ECM-100N) are ideal for instruments. All three models feature a body structure that prevents acoustic vibration, a high frequency response up to 50kHz and high sensitivity.

C-100 hi-res mic (side address) includes:

•Two-way structure incorporates capsules with variable directivity that deliver a wide frequency response of 20Hz to 50kHz

•Selectable pick-up pattern (Omni/Uni/Bi) supports a wide variety of recording applications

•Two-part metallic body structure succeeded from the C-800G microphone prevents acoustic vibration resulting in low noise and clear sound

•Low-Cut filter eliminates low-frequency noise and proximity effect

•-10dB pad switch provides added headroom

ECM-100U and ECM-100N hi-res mic (end address) includes:

•Ultra-compact with a choice of two models: Uni-directional (ECM-100U) or Omni-directional (ECM-100N)

•Flat and wide frequency response (20Hz to 50kHz) ideally suited for high-res recording

•Low-Cut filter eliminates low-frequency noise and proximity effect

•-10dB pad switch provides added headroom

The new mics expand Sony’s High-Resolution Audio line, complementing the company’s full line of professional audio technologies including the MDR Series of headphones, wireless microphone systems, and portable field recorders.
