High-quality digital sound, both indoors and outdoors

High-quality microphone capsules for clear voice recording

Despite its compactness and light weight, the ECM-S1 is equipped with three large-diameter (14 mm) microphone capsules that provide clear, high-quality sound recording with a flat frequency response, particularly in the low-mid-range voice band, while suppressing noise. Great sound quality makes a huge contribution to the overall impression made on viewers by well-produced video.

Low intrinsic noise levels deliver clear sound

The low intrinsic noise and wide dynamic range of the microphone allow clear capture of even low-level sound. Designed for streaming, the microphone is tuned particularly to capture the rich textures of the human voice near the mouth clearly and naturally.

Directivity selectable to suit the scene

Three directional sound capture modes are provided: Uni-directional, Omni-directional, and Stereo. A switch on the side of the microphone allows the user to select the appropriate directivity for the current scene or usage situation.

Noise-suppressing filter functions

A digital noise cut filter removes persistent background noise, and a low cut filter on the microphone side reduces unwanted low-frequency sound from wind, air conditioning, and vibration. Less noise reduction is needed post-production, improving workflow efficiency.

Pop guard to suppress popping noise

A pop guard is included to prevent the annoying popping sounds that can occur due to vocal plosives when the microphone is placed close to the speaker's mouth, allowing vocals, narration, and other audio to be recorded under optimal conditions.

Compact, lightweight, and easy to operate

Suitable for long hours of outdoor shooting

The receiver and microphone each have built-in batteries. The receiver can be used continuously with direct power supply when connected to the camera's Multi Interface (MI) Shoe or to a PC or other device.

Improved flexibility in audio recording through wireless transmission

Bluetooth 5.3 (Bluetooth Low Energy) and a LC3plus codec provide low power consumption, low latency, and high sound quality. Communication is possible at up to 150 m when there is a good line of sight, for flexibility in outdoor microphone placement.

Supports a variety of mounting and attachment methods

The microphone can be attached to a stand during recording, and the angle of the microphone can be adjusted back and forth. Alternatively, the 1/4" thread on the bottom of the microphone can be used to mount the microphone on a tripod, or a conversion adaptor can be used to attach the microphone to a boom arm

A wide range of options with cameras and peripherals

Multi Interface (MI) Shoe for minimal audio delay and cable-less power supply

Connecting the receiver to a camera from Sony that supports the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe, such as one of the α™ series digital interchangeable-lens cameras or vlog cameras, eliminates the need for a separate cable to supply power or to provide the audio interface.
