The Sony XLR-K3M is a dual-channel digital XLR audio adapter that allows you to connect microphones and other audio sources to cameras equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe. Released alongside the a7R IV, which benefits from its built-in digital audio interface, the adapter is able to produce its best quality by delivering a digital audio stream directly to the camera through the Multi Interface Shoe. Other Sony cameras with the standard MI Shoe can still make use of the microphone as there is a selectable digital/analog output.

The XLR-K3M features two XLR-1/4" combo mic/line inputs with 48V phantom power, and a 3.5mm stereo input with plug-in power, all with individual level controls. Intuitive controls make the adapter easy to use right out of the box. An ECM-XM1 shotgun is included so you can immediately start recording your YouTube videos, Facebook Live streams, and interviews, at home, in the studio, or on the go.

Digital Sound with Low Noise

When connected via the Multi Interface Shoe of a compatible camera that features a built-in digital audio interface, the audio signal is directly transferred to the camera in digital form so that no degradation can occur. A simple switch also provides compatibility with a wide range of cameras using an analog interface.

Effective Controls for Clear Sound

Controls Include: Record level (Auto/Manual), record level link (Input 1-Input 2), attenuator, and low-cut filter (100/300 Hz).

Mechanical Noise Suppression

An advanced shock and vibration suppressing design effectively minimizes low-frequency and handling noise, which can degrade audio quality. The absence of connecting cables, when used with a compatible MI Shoe, also means that no noise can be transmitted to the microphone mechanically via cables and connectors.

Cable-Free Connection

Simply clip the microphone into the Multi Interface Shoe on a compatible camera for direct power and audio connections without the need for extra cables or batteries. Sony's Multi Interface Shoe offers intelligent connectivity and control for a variety of accessories, providing maximum flexibility and mobility.

Flexible Setup

An MI Shoe extension cable is supplied, giving you the flexibility to position the XLR-K3M to accommodate professional rigs and camera cages.

ECM-XM1 Shotgun Microphone

An ECM-XM1 supercardioid monaural microphone and a fur windscreen for wind-noise reduction are supplied.
