Product Description

Sony ECM-680S

 is an MS stereo shotgun, electret condenser mic, perfect for a broad range of field production and broadcast studio applications. It provides excellecnt sensitivity, low inherent noise and a flat-and-wide frequency response, incorporating newly developed microphone capsules.

For the ECM-680S mic, its switchable operation between a highly directional monaural mode and stereo mode is the most distinguished feature. Monaural mode offers highly directional sound pickup, while stereo mode delivers natural and spatial sound. The MS microphone signal is internally decoded and it provides L and R (stereo) outputs. The ECM-680S mic is supplied with a XLR-5-pin to XLR-5 pin cable for use with 5-pin XLR input equipped camcorders. The optional K-1504 cable should be used when connecting it with camcorders having two 3-pin XLR inputs.

Excellent Sound Quality
The ECM-680S mic makes use of the Mid-Side (MS) technique that offers natural stereo sound and excellent localization. Equipped with newly developed large diaphragm mic capsules with bi-directional characteristics, it delivers superb sensitivity and extremely low inherent noise.

Stereo and Monaural Switchable
This mic can operate in stereo or monaural (uni-directional) mode, which allows it to be used in both EFP and ENG applications. Stereo mode is ideal for capturing environmental sound with natural sound quality, while monaural mode is ideal for clearly capturing voice and sound from a distance. These modes can be selected from the switch on the mic or from compatible Sony professional camcorders. The LED on the mic lights up when it's set to stereo mode, to easily notify the user that operating mode is currently selected.

Flat-and-Wide Frequency Response
The ECM-680S mic has a flat-andwide frequency response (50 Hz to 20 kHz (stereo)/40 Hz to 20 kHz (monaural)) in both stereo and monaural modes, and will provide sound reproduction that is extremely smooth and natural.

Built-in Low Cut Filter
The built-in two-position (M,V) low cut switch provides a simple method of reducing the effects of undesired ambient noise.

Compact and Lightweight Design
The ECM-680S mic has been designed to be a compact yet high-performance stereo shotgun microphone, ideal for camera mounted use. It measures only 9 7/8 inches in length and weighs less than 4.9 oz, maintaining good balance and mobility.
