Sony ECM-100U Uni-Directional Hi-Res Microphone

The Sony ECM-100U Hi-Res Microphone is a uni-directional condenser microphone designed to perfectly capture the raw sound of instruments. Providing a powerful studio and live tool for recording instruments of all types, the ECM-100U provides flat frequency response from 20Hz up to 50 kHz. This fits into Sony's ethos of Hi-Resolution audio products.

The ECM-100U uses a two-part metallic body construction originally used in the famous C-800G studio mic to prevent acoustic vibration and self-noise, resulting in perfectly clear sound.

The mic is fitted with a low-cut filter ideal for reducing low-frequency noise and giving you an option to reduce LF as a result of the proximity effect. There is also a -10dB pad switch for added headroom where necessary.
