Sony ECM-88B Electret-condenser Microphone

The Sony ECM-88B is a miniature omni-directional electret-condenser microphone ideally suited for quality-critical applications in broadcasting, theater and field production.

This lavalier mic achieves high-sensitivity and has a flat-and-wide frequency response.

The ECM-88B offers extremely low handling noise with unparalleled high sound quality.

The ECM-88B comes with a DC-78 power supply and it has a cable length of 8.2 feet. This model is best suited for wired lav mic applications.

However; with the DC-78 power supply disconnected, the ECM-88B's 4-pin (SMC9-4P) connector can also be used with Sony WRT-822B and WRT-8B wireless mic body-pack transmitters. Other ECM-88 Series models include: the ECM-88BC; supplied with a 4-pin connector (SMC9-4P) optimized for wireless mic use (cable length 3.9 feet); the ECM-88BPT pigtail version (without connector), and the ECM-88FPT beige-colored pigtail version (without conector).
