Introducing the ECM-B1M.
The versatile microphone with 3 pick-up patterns.

In this microphone review, product specialist Harn Jian introduces the ECM-B1M, and shows why it is the only microphone you’ll ever need.

Whether you’re doing a vlog, interview, or a documentary, the ECM-B1M is perfect for a variety of situations.

Advanced digital signal processing makes it possible to offer three switchable directivity patterns in one versatile microphone: super-directional, unidirectional, and omnidirectional. Eight high-performance microphone units work with a newly developed beamforming algorithm to provide extremely sharp directivity that effectively rejects off-axis sound. All of this is achieved in a remarkably compact microphone that is only 99.3 mm (4 inches) in length.

When connected via the Multi-interface Shoe of a compatible camera that features a built-in digital audio interface, the audio signal is directly transferred to the camera in digital form so that no degradation can occur. A simple switch also provides compatibility with a wide range of cameras using an analogue interface.

Simply clip the microphone into the Multi-interface Shoe on a compatible camera for direct power and audio connections without the need for extra cables or connectors. Sony’s Multi-interface Shoe offers intelligent connectivity and control for a variety of accessories, providing maximum flexibility and mobility for Alpha system shooting and more.
