The Sony ECM 88BC is a miniature condenser, lavalier microphone with a 4-pin Hirose connection. The 4-pin connector enables use with Sony WRT-822B and WRT-8B bodypack transmitters. The capsule is 3.5 x 3.5 x 16.8mm, allowing natural-looking concealment on stage or camera. The electret condenser element uses a dual-diaphragm mechanism, resulting in high sensitivity.
The microphone provides a flat, wide frequency response (20Hz to 20kHz) resulting in a natural sound reproduction, capturing in great detail. The water resistant design assures durability from the elements as well as moisture caused by sweat in stage applications.
