      We use these microphones for weekly scheduled webcasts of our product presentations and product launches. These webcasts are initially presented live, but are recorded for internal on-demand viewing. The Sony microphones have great sound quality and are very small so they are not distracting to the viewer. I have never had an issue and these microphones are easy to use for our sometime novice guest presenters. I believe it is better to pay a little more money for a product that is going to provide good quality and last for a long period of use.

      This is my field lav.

      I like it for its durability, long cable and epic battery life.
      Its sonic characteristics and quality are acceptable but don't compare favorably with comparable units from Sonotrim, Voice Technologies or Tram, specially in terms of price.

      Additionally, their accessories are also pretty pricey.

      Overall, a satisfactory mic, but you are paying a premium for the SONY name.

        This is a great lav mic that has been around forever and always gets the job done. I was a little disappointed that they have altered the case for the one I have had since the 90's. The old packaging was ba better design

          Comments about Sony ECM-77B - Miniature Omni-Directional Lavalier Mic:

          I have been using the ECM-77B for 3 years since I have been working in the news industry. I recently bought one myself for independent projects. It is a powerful microphone that grabs great sound. Unless you're in a room where the A/C is disrupting (usually the subject's voice will overpower the outside noise) the microphone captures great audio from a subject or interviewee. Make sure you have a double A battery when you use it; I forgot it at a shoot once and even though it still captures audio, it would've been much better to have it.

              We mainly use it for interviews, as principal mic or when there's too much ambient noise to use only a shotgun mic. The ability to either run with battery or the cam's phantom power is appreciated. We always carry it in the camera case!

                  I bought this mic as a second mic for my video production business. My main lav mic was the Sony ECM-77B, which I've had for years. It provides great sound for interviews. I recently had a shoot where I needed to mic two people so I bought another ECM-77. This mic is definitely durable and lasted much longer than the wireless mic I owned. I use it with my Canon XF300, powering it thru the camera's phantom power. Excellent mic, worth it's cost.

                        I was using a wireless lav in a hotel conference room and for some reason I was getting interference. Fortunately a fellow videographer had this lav, so I purchased one for my next gig. I won't use wireless now unless the job requires it. This thing is foolproof and the sound is clear.

                              I've use the ECM-77B for broadcast journalism, documentary filmmaking, and have even used it for off-camera voiceover work. Totally solid build quality, small and inconspicuous to use, and the sound is flawless. It's worth mentioning that the semi-hardshell padded case it comes with is a huge perk of the mic - it keeps this little guy safe when you're schlepping around gear to & from shoots, projects, etc.

                              I've had my Sony 77B's for 20 years. They have been through hurricanes, ice storms, and snowstorms. For 10 years I was a network news photographer and did numerous live shots and all day coverage for a cable network. My 77's NEVER failed me. I've got Trams that are susceptible to RF interference. When the Tram fails, I know my 77 will save the day. Time to replace them as the wires are starting to fray near the capsule.

                                We use these for our TV shoots on our closed circuit TV broadcasts.

                                The sound is near perfect, they take wear well, and are reliable.

                                We've used these small mics in our TV studio for years. They so small yet have great sound quality. They are very durable and completely reliable.

                                  Added this Sony microphone to my field gear. Easy to set up and use with the XLR inputs on my camera, delivers great audio every time. Small mic head does not stand out when clipped on lapels in interview shots or is easily
                                  hidden beneath clothes. Comes with multiple clips for varied use.

                                    This is a great mic for the price. The small size of the mic capsule makes it nearly invisible to the camera and it sounds great. While I also like the MKE2 it's hard to justify the expense when this one works great. Replacement windscreens and clips are pricey. Overall a great product.

                                      Comments about Sony ECM-77B - Miniature Omni-Directional Lavalier Mic:

                                      I originally purchased this mic about three years ago and have used it for about 30-40 interviews. The sound quality is outstanding, even with people who tend to speak quietly. I recently purchased a second one since I was running in to shoots requiring two interviews in a single shot and I wanted the audio to match.

                                      The mic cord gives you plenty of length so you can position the camera a decent distance from your subject. Nice and clear audio, voices sound very natural. Great mic, can't complain.

                                          We use these microphones for weekly scheduled webcasts of our product presentations and product launches. These webcasts are initially presented live, but are recorded for internal on-demand viewing. The Sony microphones have great sound quality and are very small so they are not distracting to the viewer. I have never had an issue and these microphones are easy to use for our sometime novice guest presenters. I believe it is better to pay a little more money for a product that is going to provide good quality and last for a long period of use.
