I was recently on the hunt for a new lavalier microphone that I could use for this channel, and after evaluating a bunch of different options – I landed on the Sony ECM-44B wired lavalier microphone.
My specific need is related to audio that I’m recording for various unboxing reviews and other “off computer” work. For my main audio when recording voice over work on the computer, I’ve been using a Blue Yeti USB microphone (which I REALLY love).
Up until this point I’ve been using a Rode VideoMic Pro directly attached and plugged into my Canon 6D Mark II for recording audio… I think that it does get really good sound, but you really have to be directly in front of the camera in order to get the best sound from it – and I’m usually a bit off axis so have been wanting something a bit different.
I have a Zoom H6 Handy Recorder that I also want to use a bit more, and haven’t in the past because I was lacking a quality XLR based lavalier.
Long story short, I got the Sony ECM-44B.
In this video I do an unboxing and quick sound test. I may need to do a little more tweaking on the recording settings to see if I have everything 100% correct.
