Sony ECM-CS3 Tie Clip Microphone
This tie-clip mic has a definite advantage over others in that it has a stereo mic system. This means it has a microphone at each end of the main body (that's 2 mics in one!).
The clip itself is rotatable by 360°, so it can be clipped horizontally to a pocket or just to a t-shirt. Or, if you rotate the clip, it can clip nicely to vertical items like your tie or shirt slit (where the buttons are).
The audio is nice and clean sounding with no hiss or crackles.
The lead is 1m long and has an L shape, 3.5mm plug at the end.
Construction seems good with an aluminium body exterior and a strong black plastic clip.
I've been using this now for around 10 months and love it! Picks up clear audio every time.
