      Comments about Sony ECM-678/9X Shotgun Microphone:

      I've used sennheiser, IMO, this is just as nice, at a better price. Low noise, wide range... Picked up a near whisper, crystal clear, at nearly 50ft. AMAZING!

      Also, VERY DURABLE.

      Bottom Line: This is THE BEST FOR YOUR MONEY!!!
