Sony ECM-44B Reviews
I've used this mic for the last two years, one of the most reliable pieces of gear and has always gotten me quality sound. Always good to have in the bag with an XLR cable to extend the range a bit, I'll take it over a wireless unit whenever I can.
Best mic in this price range
Best microphone in this price Range. I use it frequently during productions with severals hosts either for the show or for stand ups for my web-series. Reliable quality and with the brand name.
Good mics but is too sensitive
Like one review said, one or even 3 feet away from the mic tip you can hear a loud noise if you touch the cable.
Great mic, well built, durable
This is a workhorse mic. Great sound, well built. I use these everyday doing depositions.
much noisier than they used to be
get a lot of noise from the wiring just below the mic. It's very weird. Too late to return. will use as mic of last resort i guess.
Added item to our inventory
We needed another mic to compliment our inventory for our studio. We had several of these and they worked well. Ordered them and was amazed that it was delivered the next day. Thank you B&H!!
A Must-Have For Your Audio Kit
This is an old-school mic but it's reliable and gives you good piece of mind when it comes to capturing audio. Make sure you have a good/secure XLR cable, have a fresh AA battery in the lav, and you are good to go. You don't have to worry about any possible interference from a wireless mic and it'll be a good backup to your boom mic. It's hard to beat a hardline lav mic like this and it's a must-have in my opinion.
In my 35 plus years of working in Legal Video this microphone has always been in my work gear. It is my go to microphone. This will be by far will be your most important arsenal in your sound kit.
