About the Sony ECM-680S

The Sony ECM-680S is an MS stereo shotgun, electret condenser microphone, ideal for a broad range of field production and broadcast studio applications. Incorporating newly developed microphone capsules, the ECM-680S offers excellent sensitivity, low inherent noise and a flat-and-wide frequency response. The most distinguished feature of the ECM-680S is its switchable operation between a highly directional monaural mode and stereo mode.

Monaural mode provides highly directional sound pickup, while stereo mode delivers natural and spatial sound. The MS microphone signal of the ECM-680S is internally decoded and it provides L and R (stereo) outputs. The ECM-680S is supplied with a XLR-5-pin to XLR-5 pin cable for use with 5-pin XLR input equipped camcorders. The optional K-1504 cable should be used when connecting the ECM-680S stereo shotgun with camcorders having two 3-pin XLR inputs.

Sony ECM-680S Features

  • Excellent Sound Quality: The ECM-680S uses the Mid-Side technique that offers natural stereo sound & excellent localization. Equipped with newly developed large diaphragm microphone capsules with bi-directional characteristics, the ECM-680S delivers superb sensitivity & extremely low inherent noise
  • Stereo and Monaural Switchable: The ECM-680S can operate in either stereo or monaural (uni-directional) mode, allowing it to be used in both EFP and ENG applications. Stereo mode is ideal for capturing environmental sound with natural sound quality
  • Flat-and-Wide Frequency Response: The ECM-680S microphone has a flat-and wide frequency response (50 Hz to 20 kHz (stereo)/40 Hz to 20 kHz (monaural)) in both stereo and monaural modes and will provide sound reproduction that is extremely smooth and natural
  • Built-in Low Cut Filter: The built-in two-position (M,V) low cut switch provides a simple method of reducing the effects of undesired ambient noise
  • Compact and Lightweight Design: The ECM-680S has been designed to be a compact yet high-performance stereo shotgun microphone, ideal for camera mounted use. It measures only 9 7/8 inches in length and weighs less than 4.9 oz, maintaining good balance and mobility
