Sony is launching a new microphone aimed at studio voice recording, vlogging and podcasting.
The C-80 is a uni-directional condenser microphone that inherits the technology of the Sony C-800G and C-100 microphones.
Its key features include:
- Utilising the microphone capsule derived from the C-100 and the two-metal body construction used in the C-800G.
- Dual diaphragm configuration suppresses sonic changes with distance (proximity effect) and allows more stability in the vocal recording process.
- “Noise Elimination Construction” developed for the C-800G/C-100 prevents microphone body acoustic vibration, resulting in low noise and clear sound.
“The C-80 takes advantage of the Sony heritage in professional audio, providing users with an introductory model that incorporates all the high-end professional features,” said James Leach, category head, Sony Europe.
“With unrivaled sound quality and thoughtful construction, the C-80 is a great addition to any audio enthusiast’s microphone collection and a perfect complement to Sony’s full line of professional audio technologies,” he added.
The C-80 will be available in Europe from November 2022.
