Summary: This is a good step up from the on-board microphone you are probably replacing this with. It is simple to use. Plug it in, choose the 90° or 120° setting, do your sound check to set your levels on your recording device and you are ready to go. This uses a single AA 1.5 volt battery for power. It connects to your device using a 3.5mm stereo plug. If you buy it used be sure it has the foam windscreen.
Summary: I've been very pleased with it. I have a Kodak Zi8 pocket video camera that I use to record my wife and I playing folk tunes to upload to YouTube and this mic greatly improved the sound quality. I use a desktop mic stand and place it on the floor a couple of feet in front of us with the direction set to 90 degrees rather than 120. When using my cheap video camera it's hard to judge this mic's potential, but for what I'm using it for, it's great!
Summary: Good afternoon, I have bought east microphone Sony ECM-MS907 Condenser Cable Consumer buys to Microphone thinking it that from my writing-desk podria to record the conferences of my professor. Lamentably I have not been able because the microphone is not used for this. I am disappointed.
Summary: Bought it for Class Room Lecture recording for my Wife. Plug it into the Sony Mini Disc Player/Recorder, MZ-8xx. I did the recording in my quiet bed room with normal and raised voice like in the class room environment. It recorded, but when I play it back it was very faint. I can bearly hear anything. Plug it in to my laptop mic and tried recording it. Same thing. It's probably good for other environment. But it certainly not meant for Lecture recording.
Summary: This is the second time I have purchased this microphone. I re-bought it after 7 years of consistent use in a vocal studio. (The first died of over-use) Until now, it was used primarily with a sony mini-disc recorder which, I love! The sound quality is very good, especially considering the size and price. I would occasionally get feedback in extreme ranges (high C's etc.) but overall I am very pleased with this product.
Summary: I used this microphone togehter with minidisc player (MZ-RH1) primarily for recording piano recitals, and the results are overall quite satisfactory. The windscreen functions well to filter out any air movement (I set the mic up in a room with strong fan/AC). The recording sounds clear and crisp with no noise pickup. The battery life is very good: battery is still running strong after >50 hrs of use. The option of 90/120 degree pickup angle is also a nice feature.
Pros: Good for instrumental recording, great accessory for MD/DAT, good battery life (with regular AA battery),
Cons: The plastic casing, battery compartment and stand look very cheap, range is only 100-15,000hz
Summary: I use this mic for piano recitals and get excellent sounding results. The sound is realistic and the stereo imaging is very good. It feels durable and can probably survive being dropped. Combine it with a MD recorder that has mic input and it’s perfect for personal recording sessions on a budget. I highly recommend it.
Pros: Great for recording instruments. Pickup pattern can be set to 90 or 120 degrees for recording instruments distant or near. Battery life indicator. 1.5m (5 ft.) cord. Durable.
Cons: 100 – 15,000 Hz. Not really a weakness, as this mic sounds excellent and the price is right. There are mics with wider frequency range but they also cost more.
