Sony ECM-MS2 Electret Condenser Microphone is a compact on-board mic designed for handheld camcorders. The compact 5.39" (137mm) length prevents the microphone from inadvertently appearing in view and allows for easier transport.

The ECM-MS2 offers both stereo and mono operation, increasing the versatility of this microphone. It allows, for example, for one channel to record environmental sounds, while the second channel is captures voice on a second microphone. This makes the microphone very well suited to applications such as news gathering and documentary shooting on location.

A cable tie is supplied with this microphone to fasten the unplugged mic cable during mono operation.

Reduce External Noise

The ECM-MS2 microphone's metal body enhances audio performance by blocking vibration, resonance, and RF noises.

Electronically Balanced

This mic provides an electronically balanced output operation on 48V standard external power (it accepts 4 to 52V).

Stereo & Mono Operation

The ECM-MS2 offers mono operation when stereo is not required, simply by cutting off the power supply to the right channel. This capability is useful for recording environmental sounds with one channel, while the other channel is being used with an additional wireless microphone system.

Professional Quality Sound Reproduction

The ECM-MS2 delivers professional-quality natural sound reproduction. It has a frequency response of 80 Hz to 20 kHz (stereo) and 70 Hz to 20 kHz (mono), excellent sensitivity of -32 dB (stereo) and -36 dB (mono), and an inherent noise level of less than 25 dB SPL.

Windscreen Protects from Contact Noise

The supplied feather boa like windscreen suppresses the strong wind noise typical of harsh-climate operating conditions.
