Excerpt: When it's working, it sounds great. The problem is, we use this product 10+ hours per day for live news broadcasts, and they are not robust enough. We have had 5 caps go bad in just as many months. Never seen anything like it. Costing us a lot of money to have to replace on a regular basis. I'm going to dish out more money this time for the Sanken mic in hopes that it will have a longer life.
Excerpt: This mic is for my slot-in wireless package used on my Sony F800. The build is good, audio is nice and clean, it's not too directional so you can place the mic in hidden clothing areas and point it in a convenient direction. If you have a few extra bucks, i'd recommend going for the Sanken model over this one.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Quality Construction
Summary: This is kind of the standard location lapel mice. Not much to say except it works great! Of note, I also have a Sony ECM-NV1 short shotgun for a camera mic and I use for a boom in studio and both mics have very similar sonic qualities... they are easy to cut between.
Summary: The Sony ECM-77(B), 44B, and 88, condenser Lapel Microphones have been the industry standard since i can remember and are used by broadcast professionals around the world. What makes the ECM'S stand apart is their ability to reproduce voice and instrument naturally without coloration, holding true under high SPL and with little distortion. The ECM feedback rejection is less then you would expect for an Omni-directional pickup pattern.
Summary: I&apos;ve used these mics before at my local public access and they deffinately get the job done! They do get some noise issues occasionally, but for the most part they have been clean every time I've used one.
Excerpt: I already owned two ECM-77Bs when I bought this one from Adorama. It was to replace a Sonotrim lav that has been nothing but trouble. I really liked the audio characteristics of the Sonotrim, but it was unreliable, more sensitive to interference, and often just failed to operate. The ECM-77B is rugged, small, delivers superb sound quality and is easy to maintain. In my experience, there is no other lavaliere mic I would recommend.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: Great purchase! Ive been looking for a good mic for a while, and having worked with this model for years I know they usually work perfect. Ive already done a job with this and the audio came out great. The client was pleased and that's always a good thing.
