Audiofanzine FR's review (Sony - ECM-NV1)

By Audiofanzine FR, 26/10/2008
(Originally written by Dom Brunet/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Compact shotgun microphone, originally form the Sony DVCAM PDX10, PD150 and PD170 cams.
Condenser electret, +48-V phantom power
11.8" cable with Neutrik XLR connector included!
High-quality wind screen provided!
This mic has been conceived for cams.


It's a good compact shotgun mic. It's ultra-light due to the plastic body!
The sound is rather smooth and the mic gives wonderful results for voice recording.

moosers's review (Sony - ECM-55)

The Sony ECM 55 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone that is designed for use in the recording studio.  It has an XLR cable connected to it and has an omnidirectional pick up pattern.  I've only used the mic in the studio, but it is suitable for live recording as well for simple live sound.


I've only used the Sony ECM 55 a handful of times, but I've used it in a variety of situations.  I first used it a few years ago, but I'm not in love with this mic so I haven't used it all that often.  I like the way that it sounds for some things, but for me it only works for on a limited number of applications.  I do like using it for acoustic guitar and other acoustic stringed instruments, but I don't like it so much for drum overheads or anything drum related.  It has a pretty crisp sound quality for more mid range instruments like the acoustic guitar, but for things that need a bit more detail on the high end, it doesn't sound as good in my opinion.  Having the cable attached to it is both a blessing and a curse because while it comes in handy sometimes, it can get in the way other times.  Sony definitely makes some good products, and the ECM 55 is one of them, but I've certainly heard better small diaphragm condenser microphones for this price and to me there are more options out there.  The price is quite reasonable, but to me the mic could sound a little better because there are other mics out there that sound better for the same price.  All in all, the Sony ECM 55 is a nice mic at a nice price, but definitely shop around a bit before buying.

jasbo555's review (Sony - ECM-909)

By jasbo555, 13/12/2009
I actually signed up to this site, purely, initially anyway, to share my experience of using the ecm-909 microphone. After having spent £150 on a microphone , i wasnt too impressed.....i was looking for a microphone i could feel very comfortable with and confident with. After looking through a junk shop on a day out with my wife ...i noticed an old sony cassette recorder....with the aforementioned ecm-909 microphone. I asked how much they wanted for the mic. I was told £3......and took it not knowing the quality of the mic but knowing that sony only do maybe the mic could be useful. The mic is so good that i have gigged in many different environments, and can honestly say that it is brilliant....suits me perfectly not only for live but also for recording......its a great little mic.....and have yet to hear anything come close to my Roland ac 60 amp with the sony ecm-909 microphone....i write my own stuff and have a baritone voice.....there is a lot of depth in the mic which suits me sound is quiet acoustic...similar to jackson browne (hope i spelled it right ?) or the eagles acoustic in short, i would highly recomend getting your hands on one of these babies......although you might have to search !


Only comment on this section i can make is that the quality is brilliant........but i did have to solder a cable to the wires to adapt it to XLR
