Sony Hits the Hi (Res) Notes at AES

by Sony Pro Team 10/18/2017, in Press, Sony Professional, Production, Faith Solutions

Sony Electronics’ Pro Audio Division (booth #848) is showing prototypes of three new Hi-Resolution microphones. Designed for professional studio and home recording applications, the new Hi-Res microphones are capable of extended frequency response to 50kHz.

These new models build on Sony’s legendary studio microphone heritage and continue its recent development of Hi-Res audio products.  The side address mic, C-100 is optimized for vocal use, while the two end address models (one cardioid: ECM-100U and one omnidirectional: ECM-100N) are ideal for instruments.  With a body structure that prevents acoustic vibration, a high frequency response up to 50kHz and high sensitivity, the new microphones offer unrivaled sound quality.

C-100 Hi-Res Mic

C-100 Hi-Res Mic (Side Address) – Ideal for Vocal Applications

  • Supports Hi-Res Recording (~50kHz)in an ultra-compact package
  • Two-way structure incorporates newly developed capsules with variable directivity that deliver a wide frequency response of 20Hz to 50kHz
  • Selectable pick-up pattern (Omni/Uni/Bi) supports a wide variety of recording applications
  • Two-part metallic body structure succeeded from the C-800G microphone prevents acoustic vibration resulting in low noise and clear sound
  • Low-Cut filter eliminates low-frequency noise and proximity effect
  • -10dB pad switch provides added headroom

ECM-100U Hi-Res Uni-Directional Mic

ECM-100U and ECM-100N Hi-Res Mic (End Address) – Ideal for Instrument Applications

  • Ultra-compact with a choice of two models: Uni-directional (ECM-100U) or Omni-directional (ECM-100N)
  • Flat and wide frequency response (20Hz to 50kHz) ideally suited for High-Res Recording
  • Low-Cut filter eliminates low-frequency noise and proximity effect
  • -10dB pad switch provides added headroom

ECM-100N Hi-Res Omni-Directional Mic

The new mics expand Sony’s High-Resolution Audio line, which has included a complete series of solutions designed to ensure that the latest generation of music enthusiasts can enjoy Hi-Res digital music with the type of sound quality available on LPs and CDs.

These new products complement Sony’s full line of professional audio technologies including the MDR Series of headphones, wireless microphone systems, and portable field recorders.
