5.0 out of 5 stars A steal at the price!, 9 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Sony ECM-MS907 - Stereo Condenser Microphone (Electronics)
I have three digital recorders - Zoom H4, Marantz PMD 671 (both have rather poor mic pre-amps) and a couple of expensive condenser mics. Recently, I bought the brilliant Sony PCM D50 digital recorder which is simply out of this world! I've tried two examples of Sony's recommended microphone for this recorder, the MS-957. Don't waste your money. They were both as bad as each other! Seriously, you'll be sending it back because the noise floor on both mics I sampled was dreadful. The good news is that their semi-pro version of this mic, the MS-907 is sensational! NO background noise whatsoever. True, clean, accurate un-coloured sound ... and at less than half the price of it's costlier sibbling! Never mind the sales talk - trust your ears. If you are looking for a really good, battery powered "plug-in-power" electret mic for a digital recorder - the MS-907 is a steal! I record for a living - both in my home studio, but mostly in some of the best London studios around Soho ("Look Around You" narrator and "Papa" Dolmio in those pasta sauce TV commercials etc.) so I know what kind of sound these serious studios can produce. Plugged into a good digital recorder, the MS-907 can really hold it's own with the "big boys." This is now the only mic I use and if it got broken, I'd buy a new one tomorrow. Simple but brilliant mic. Can't recommend it highly enough.
