    It doesn't work!

    Comments about Sony ECM-F8 - TableTop Boundary Condenser Microphone:

    I put a battery in, and connected it to an oscilloscope to see if it generates any signals while I talking to it. I set the oscilloscope to most sensitive, but no luck, no any signals! I connected the scope to my other microphone, LM101S, which I just got recently, it worked perfect! So I returned Sony one.

    I use this mic in an observation booth--requires a lot of gain on the preamp; sound quality is nominal but it works.

      Comments about Sony ECM-F8 - TableTop Boundary Condenser Microphone:

      I purchased four of these to use in a conference room setting for skype etc. but found that they had a smaller range (gain) than the built-in laptop mics. I also wasn't clear upon purchase that they required batteries since the "electret" design typically uses a permanently charged dielectric material. Ended up purchasing boundary mic directly from [...].
