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.
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).

Top Customer Reviews
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 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 would recommend investing in either a minidisc recorder or a MP3 recorder.

I would have preffered the microphone that came with my Sony Midi recorder but this does the job. Just appreciate the fact that I was able to find one that works.Published 10 months ago by May Sloan
It picks up sound (voice and piano) very clearly for my Mini-disc recorder. Other musicians have seen me use this microphone and commended they have the same one.Published 17 months ago by angeliclark

I don't think the sound quality is so impressive. It is a little too small. the wire is thin. Not so easy to change battery.Published 21 months ago by Larry
