Sony Unveils New Clip-On Wireless Microphones for Cleaner Audio Capture

The ECM-W3 and ECM-W3S feature high signal-to-noise ratio microphone units for clearer audio pickup. They also incorporate new noise cancellation technology to effectively eliminate background interference through digital signal processing.

A low-cut function further reduces ambient low frequency sounds like wind or AC unit hum. The compact transmitter weighs around 17g, while the receiver is approximately 25g.

Bluetooth 5.3 with LC3+ encoding enables robust wireless performance. Battery life reaches about 6 hours on the transmitter and 18 hours on the receiver. A safety track mode records dual audio channels at different levels.

Digital USB-C and 3.5mm outputs provide connection options to cameras, smartphones, and computers.

The ECM-S1 wireless streaming microphone houses three large 14mm condenser mic capsules. It offers the same noise cancellation and low-cut capabilities as the clip-on models in a versatile form factor weighing 157g.

The 25g receiver connects directly to Sony cameras with a MI shoe interface. It can also output pristine 24-bit/48kHz digital audio via USB-C. Total battery life reaches approximately 13 hours.

An integrated volume control knob and LED monitoring round out the ECM-S1’s toolset for streamlined audio capture.

All three new models will be available in early October.
Pricing is set at $469.99 for the ECM-W3 dual channel microphone, $349.99 for the ECM-W3S single channel, and $419.99 for the ECM-S1 wireless streaming microphone.
