Sony Unveils New Microphone For Studio Recording

News Image
Sony has unveiled a new microphone for studio recording, the C-80, a uni-directional condenser microphone ideal for vocal/voice recording, instrumental recording, vlogging and podcasting.

This new product inherits the technology of the Sony revered C-800G and C-100 microphones, making high quality sound even more accessible.

Key Features of the C-80 include:
• Utilizing the microphone capsule derived from the C-100 and the two-metal body construction used in the C-800G, the C-80 inherits the essence of these two industry standard models.

• 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.

Sonic Characteristics of the C-80 include:
• Tight and rich mid-range capture provides a vocal sound with a clear core and presence, allowing vocals to stand out even when mixed with other instrumental sounds.

• Realistic reproduction of the characteristics of an instrument, such as the sound of guitar strings and the resonance of the body.

• Natural and clear vocal recording is achieved by suppressing boomy low frequencies and noise when close to the microphone.

"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."

The new C-80 will be available in Europe from November 2022 and joins the Sony lineup of Professional Audio products including the MDR Series of headphones, and wireless microphone systems such as UWP-D Series and DWX Series.
