Superior Sound Quality
The ECM-680S uses the Mid-Side (MS) technique that offers natural stereo sound and excellent localization. Equipped with newly developed large diaphragm microphone capsules with bidirectional characteristics, the ECM-680S delivers a superb sensitivity of -28 dB* (stereo)/-32 dB* (monaural), and extremely low inherent noise of less than 20 dB SPL (stereo/monaural).
* 0 dB=1 V/Pa

Mono/Stereo 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, while monaural mode is ideal for clearly capturing voice and sound from a distance. These modes can be selected from the switch on the microphone or from compatible Sony professional camcorders*.

The LED on the microphone lights up when the ECM-680S is set to stereo mode, to easily notify the user that operating mode is currently selected.

* Stereo and monaural modes can be switched from the Sony HDW-F900R CineAlta™ camcorder, HDW-790 HDCAM™ camcorder, and PDW-F350/F330 XDCAM™ HD camcorder

Flat & Wide Frequency Response.
The ECM-680S microphone has a flat-and wide frequency response (50 Hz to 20 kHz (stereo)/40Hz to 20 kHz (monaural)) in both stereo and monaural modes, and will provide sound reproduction that is extremely smooth and natural.

Compact & Lightweight
The ECM-680S has been designed to be a compact yet high-performance stereo shotgun microphone, ideal for camera mounted use. It measures only 250 mm (9 7/8 inches) in length and weighs less than 140 g (4.9 oz), maintaining good balance and mobility when mounted on a range of Sony professional camcorders.
