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.
