Sony ECM-MS907 Microphone ECM-MS907 Microphones

The ECM-MS907 one-point stereo microphone was created for the advanced amateur to make instrumental recordings. Ideal for usage with MiniDisc Walkman and DAT portables, or any number of recorders on the market, the ECM-MS907 features a one-point stereo design, mid/side (MS) capsules with a switchable pickup angle, an Oxygen-free Copper (OFC) mic cable and a gold-plated stereo miniplug.

Created for the advanced amateur to make instrumental recordings.

One-Point Stereo Design
Enjoy full stereo recording with one small electret condenser mic. Perfect for live shows, single instruments, field recording, and anything else you want to point a mic at.

Mid/Side (MS) Switch
This allows you to select the pickup angle between left and right channel--choose 90 degrees for a single voice or instrument, or 120 degrees to pick up many voices and instruments, arranged across the stage

OFC Cable and Gold-Plated Plug
Both the Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) cable and the gold-plated plug provide maximum performance and minimum noise.

Ideal for Portable Digital Recorders
With a wide dynamic range to complement digital recording systems, the ECM-MS907 is ideal for modern flash, DAT, MD, and other recording devices. It's L-shaped stereo mini-plug is standard on most.

Low-Profile Design
The ECM-MS907 features an inconspicuous, compact design for easy portability, with a triangular shape that fits comfortably in the hand.

Mid/Side (MS) capsules
The ECM-MS907 features mid/side capsules for natural stereo panorama. The Mid capsule picks up monophonic sound while the Side capsule picks up left/right difference sound--subtracting and adding the two capsule signals yields separate left and right channels (this permits electronic adjustment of pickup angle).

I have used the ECMMS907 to fill about 150 mini discs since I bought it three years ago. It runs lovingly on one AA battery (unlike it's watch-battery-dependent predecessor) and allows for two polor patterns 180 and 90 degrees. The casing of the unit is rugged. It includes wind screen, travel pouch, stand clip, and four foot cloth encased cable. I have been able to record everything from street musicians to Dave Bruebeck concerts.

In pro audio it isn't considerd cool to like Sony gear as it often uses digital tricks to achieve a bogus sense of higher fidelity, but Sony electronics are bulletproof and work exactly as designed until you lose them or back them over with your car. That said...

Lots of people I have spoken with purchased this microphone thinking they could jack into the 1/8" input on thier laptop computer and get desirable results. This might work if your microphone is inches away from a blaring guitar amp, but won't do well with amient recordings or speaking as the output gain is far too low. Most people are not happy in this situation.

Overall, worth every penny. Perhaps there is a modification out there to improve the output gain.

The other reviewers wrote some great info about this Microphone. Some drawbacks are the relatively bulkyness of this unit as compared to others.
The sound quality is sufficiently clear when recording, but is not sensitive enough to satisfy the most demanding users such as musicians or professional reporters. As the other reviewers have said, you need a relatively loud source as there is no sensitivity switch or zoom feature. It does have the 90-120 degree switch, so you can toggle the range depending on what you are recording.
This microphone is very compatible with many different devices. MD is the best though.
Here's one MD player recorder that I know has the microphone jack and works great with this microphone:
'Sony MZ-NF810CK Net MD MiniDisc Recorder with Car Kit'
However, don't be fooled. Not every MD player has the appropriate Mic Jack. Double Check the technical documentation to make sure. Units that definitely do not have it are:
'Sony MZ-NE410 High Speed Net MD Walkman Recorder'
Notice the deceptive "Recorder" moniker in the product name. Don't be fooled! Very few MD "recorders" actually record with a microphone!
Not sure about these:
'Sony MZ-NF610 High Speed Net MD Walkman Recorder'
'Sony MZ-N510CK NetMD Walkman/Recorder with Car Kit'
'Sony MZ-N505 Net MD Walkman Player/Recorder'
Do your research before purchasing any MD player. All in all, this is a good value and pretty good quality for a digital microphone.

I use the MS-MS907 microphone on a weekly basis. My main use of this microphone is to record lectures and it does a good job of it. Of course microphone placement is the key to a good recording but the MS907 provides a good pickup at this price point. It operates on a single AA battery and is highly efficient with energy consumption. Another feature I like about this microphone is that it provides two pickup pattern (90degrees for an individual speaker and 120degrees to accomodate a chorus).
I would recommend investing in either a minidisc recorder or a MP3 recorder.

I purchased this microphone to record piano playing in my living room via the Griffin iMic to my Mac iBook using the software "WireTap Pro" version 1.11. I have mounted the Mike on the side of my grand piano, where the wall curves. I have made very good recordings, and I am happy with the unit and it's price. I didn't find the recordings to be as good when I attempted to record from some distance away from the piano. Recording from close up and adjusting the sensitivity in the software to avoid distortion seems to be the best way to accomplish my purpose. The unit seems to be a cost-effective solution for my kind of use. I have given it a 4/5 rating although I purchased it with little knowledge of the field overall, and I am not able to make any comparisons.

This has been a wonderful microphone for me. I heard it as the microphone used on the cd The Kitchen Tapes by Lori McKenna. I asked other fans what microphone she used, because I loved the stereo sound she got. They told me this was the microphone she used, and I bought it. I use it with my minidisc recorder when I need to record my live performances. I've found that the best way to use this is to set it on the floor between my feet, using a low profile microphone stand from Musician's Friend. Low profile is the name they give it. While you're ordering, get their spring clip microphone holder to hold this microphone. For my best results, extend the low profile stand all the way, clip in the microphone, and face it away from you. Now point it straight up, and you'll get a nice recording of your singing and playing, while capturing the ambience of the room. This setup doesn't overpower the microphone, thus it doesn't engage the limiter to chop down the sound. If you use the setup I've detailed, you'll get a nice recording, and if you need to hear how this sounds, go to [...] type in Lori McKenna, and listen to the samples of the Kitchen tapes in high-fi, and you'll hear how good this microphone sounds.
