Sony ECM-719 - Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone

B&H # SOECM719 Mfr # ECM719
No Longer Available

The Sony ECM-719 is a stereo electret condenser microphone designed for use with small portable recording devices such as MiniDisc and DAT recorders. The microphone features an attached microphone cable that terminates to an L shaped 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo mini-connector. The stereo microphone accurately reproduces signal while maintaining the true stereo imagery of the incoming audio. This makes the ECM-719 a suitable option for recording outdoor ambiance, lectures, performances etc.

The electret condenser capsule can be powered internally using an LR44 battery or externally when used with compatible recording devices. A Voice / Music switch enables the user to choose the desired character and the small, unobtrusive, lightweight profile is convenient when traveling or recording on location.

Stereo Unidirectional Capsule
The unidirectional (cardioid) stereo element accurately captures incoming audio as represented within the stereo field. The unidirectional polar pattern reduces noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone.
Table Surface or Clip-On Mounting
The microphone can be clipped to clothing or mounted on a table for interview style capturing.
2-Way Power Options
The ECM-719 can be powered internally with an LR44 1.5V battery or externally when used with compatible recording devices.
L-Shaped Connector
The cable terminates to a stereo L-shaped 1/8" (3.5mm) mini connector. The L-shaped design creates less bulk when using with small, portable recording devices.

    Comments about Sony ECM-719 - Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone:

    This microphone seems to fit the bill for what I need, i.e. doing 2, 3, or maybe 4 person interviews around a desk or table with everyone on one side facing the camera. Testing it out I found that it might pick up a 60Hz hum - which definitely was worse when I added the 25 foot extender to the cord - but when I filmed a lecture I gave this noise/hum was much less noticable, and using Adobe Preimere Elements I got rid of it all with a Noise remover preset filter. (Preimere Elements has 4-5 different noise reduction effects.) As others have noted, the ON light only blinks when it is first turned on so it is easy to forget to turn it off and thus the battery can be dead the next time. (I picked up a 3-pack of batteries.) Also, the instructions say that the light will be dim if the battery is low - but since it only really blinks it is hard to know if it dim or not... This probably means I'll replace the battery more frequently, i.e., every 30-50 hours of use even though it says the battery should last 100 hours.

        Comments about Sony ECM-719 - Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone:

        Though it looks a little bulky for a clip-on microphone, it is lightweight and works well for use with a HD pocket video camera. Is a STEREO mic which is required for use with my video camera. We use for recording interviews as part of short educational or informative films. The cord is a bit short and buying an extension cable is worthwhile.

          Comments about Sony ECM-719 - Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone:

          I purchased this microphone for our investigators when they record interviews. At [$] bucks we were all a bit skeptical regarding the performance. This microphone picked up the interview without flaw. The whispered side conversations came out crystal clear much to the surprise of the investigators! After hearing the results of this unit we purchased this model for all our investigators and saved a considerable amount of money.

          Small microphone, big sound

          By Ray Hosler

          from San Jose, CA

          Comments about Sony ECM-719 - Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone:

          I have used the microphone for voice recording of podcasts and it does a good job. The fidelity/bass is not quite what you'll get with a professional arrangement, but it's darn good.It uses a standard Sony LR44 (or equivalent) 1.5 volt battery.Note that some microphones require battery power to operate on some digital recorders. I found this out the hard way. The voice and stereo music settings give performance characteristics suited to the type of recording you make. The on/off switch is located at the front in a convenient location. Just don't forget to turn it off when you're not using it. The only indication it's on is a tiny red light that comes on when started. The light immediately shuts off after switched on.Four feet of cable seems like plenty.
