    C-80 - Overview

    Sony C80 is a uni-directional condenser microphone suitable for vocal/voice recording. Inheriting the microphone capsule used in the C-100 and using the same material as the C-800G for the diaphragm, this microphone inherits the essence of the predecessors. The dual diaphragm configuration suppresses sound characteristics changes with distance (proximity effect), enabling stable recording/distribution. "Noise Elimination Construction" succeeded from C-800G/C-100 prevents acoustic vibration resulting in low noise and clear sound.

    Excellent Sound Quality
    A powerful and rich mid-low frequency range provides vocals and voice recordings with a core sound and presence.

    Dual Diaphragm Configuration
    The dual diaphragm configuration realizes stable recording/distribution by suppressing sound characteristic changes with distance (proximity effect).

    Noise Elimination Construction
    The two-part metallic body structure succeeded from the C-800G/C-100 microphone prevents acoustic vibration, resulting in low noise and clear sound.

    Low-Cut Filter
    The low-Cut filter switch helps eliminate the low-frequency noise and proximity effect.

    Pad Switch
    An -10dB pad switch on the microphone provides added headroom and minimizes distortion caused by transient peaks.
