Sony ECM-678/9X Shotgun Condenser Microphone

Manufacturer: Sony Pro Audio

Item #: ECM-678   •   MFG #: ECM-678




The Sony ECM678 is a short shotgun, electret condenser-type microphone, which delivers outstanding sound performance in all field production and broadcast studio applications. It is also well-suited for use on Sony professional camcorders such as the HDV Series, DVCAM Series, and XDCAM Series. The ECM-678 offers excellent sensitivity, low inherent noise, and extreme durability. Its highly directional response allows clear voice pick-up even in the most demanding of environments, while the built-in low-cut filter switch helps to reduce unwanted pop and wind noise encountered in the field. With its high performance and durability, the ECM678 microphone is the perfect choice for quality-critical sound-acquisition applications. It features a 40 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and is 9.9" Long.

Superior Sound Quality
The ECM-678 is equipped with a newly developed microphone capsule, which delivers a superb sensitivity of -28 dB (0 dB=1 V/Pa.) and an extremely low inherent noise of less than 16 dB SPL. This provides the clearest pick-up of even the faintest sounds at long distances.

Flat-and-Wide Frequency Response
The ECM-678 microphone has a flat and wide frequency response (40 Hz to 20 kHz) and will provide sound reproduction that is extremely smooth and natural.

Compact Design
The ECM-678 has been specially designed to meet the needs for a compact yet high-performance shotgun microphone. The result is a highly directional microphone that is only 250 mm in length.

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

High Durability and Reliability
The vibration-resistant mechanism of the ECM-678 offers high durability and reliability, making it suitable for the harshest environments encountered in the most demanding of sound-acquisition scenarios.

Did You Know....... many top record producers, when recording vocals, will use a dynamic mic for up close vocals and a heavily compressed shotgun mic about five feet away. It's true! The dynamic mic not only captures part of the final sound, but is also useful for giving the artist something to focus on, keeping a fairly consistent position relative to the shotgun mic. Have a shotgun mic on hand for your next vocal could be the goldmine you've been seeking!
