Sony ECM-DS70P overview

  • 1Description

The Sony ECM-DS70P is a low-profile stereo microphone for use with portable recorders with compatible stereo 3.5mm input jacks. Utilizing electret condenser capsules, the microphone features a unidirectional stereo pattern for capturing sounds situated squarely in the left or right channel, minimizing surrounding sonic activity and enhancing the quality of vocal or instrumental solo/ensemble performances. It uses plug-in power and thus requires no battery.

At 10g, the stereo microphone is lightweight. It can connect directly to the 3.5mm input jack of your device, though its supplied 3.3' microphone cable gives you flexibility in placing the microphone in various environments. Its gold-plated plug ensures optimal conductivity and minimizes extraneous noise.

    Sony ECM-DS70P reviews

    ECM-DS70P Portable Stereo Condenser Microphone for Devices with 3.5mm Stereo Input Jacks is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm happy with it I recently used this Sony microphone for recording a piano class rehearsal with my minidisc recorder. Hey, it sounded pretty good. It has fairly good stereo separation. There is some hiss, but the signal is clear enough to retain some hi-fidelity quality about it. Does it sound like a professional mic? Probably not. But it serves the semi-professional/hobbyist's needs. This mic will help me get through until I can afford the Zoom H4 recorder. Problems Encountered: I haven't encountered any problems with this yet. Previous Equivalent Items Owned: I have owned several low-end microphone for portable recording. This is better. Items I Recommend: Mini-disc recorder

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I should have bought Rode Video Micro I bought this for DJI OSMO based on the tests/reviews I saw on Youtube. I didn't look at Rode Video Micro at all as I thought it will be quite expensive considering the quality and result that Rode has. Unfortunately I was wrong. Rode Video Micro costs $1 than this and has probably 2x or 3x quality over this mic. Pros: - Mic was so small - Just a bit better sound quality than built-in DJI OSMO mic. Cons: - For that price, I should have gone with Rode Video Micro, which is cheaper and gives 2x - 3x quality - although it's a bit bigger and require extra mount. Well... don't waste your money, get the good one! am off to get Rode VMicro now :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony ECM-DS70P Sony ECM-DS70P works perfectly with Zoom H2n digital recorder once you turn on Zoom's mic phantom power setting. audio quality is every bit as good as Zoom's internal mics. I use this mic for voice recording where it is better to move recorder up to one meter away from recording position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for the buck Bought this to use an external mic for my GoPro HERO 3+. Use it to catch better audio on my car while driving at speed. Along with a 'dead cat' windscreen, it works very well! Compact, versatile in ability to mount it, and very importantly, doesn't require an internal power source.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever and efficient As a professionnal journalist, it is not always easy to get good recordings from a small pocket recorder, specially when this one is on a table. With the Sony mike, I can lay the recorder flat and the mike vertically, which works fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good sounding micro mic for minidisc I use this mic to record gigs and rehearsals for my band. Its portability is perfect for this application, as well as for getting decent recordings at concerts etc. You can clip it to a hat.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected from Sony I was disappointed as I have used Sony products for years. I bought this mic to go with my Kodak Zi8 as I had heard that the Zi8 internal mic was not that good. That is not true. I wish now I had waited until I tried the Zi8 first before I bought the mic The internal mic has a better sound then the Sony and I now use only the internal mic which has better bass and excellent overall reproduction. Maybe I just got a bad Sony.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from effective as a lavalier This mic is good for closeup work, including lavalier. It does not pick up well from a subject 8 or more feet away.
