Sony's new ECM-322BC and ECM-322BMP headset microphone systems are designed for highly sensitive and clear sound pickup in live sound, house-of-worship, corporate and educational applications.
"These new models represent our most advanced stage of headset microphone design," said Paul Foschino, senior marketing manager for professional audio at Sony Electronics. "Lightweight, extremely comfortable and inconspicuous, these systems were created to provide A/V presenters, lecturers, ministers and educators with state-of-the-art hands-free capability."
The ECM-322BMP system is also available in a UWP-X5 headset/wireless package which includes a body-pack transmitter and a plug-in wireless tuner module. These wireless tuner modules can be plugged into Sony's "all-in-one" SRP-X700P and SRP-X500P digital powered mixer/amplifiers, which can each accept two UWP Series tuner modules.
Additionally, for multi-channel systems the new Sony MB-X6 tuner base can accept a maximum of six wireless modules.
The ECM-322BC headset mic system features a four-pin connector for Sony's WL-800 Wireless Series and is planned to be available in July at a suggested list price of $165.
The ECM-322BMP headset mic system has a 1/8-inch connector for the UWP Series Wireless and is planned to be available in July at a suggested list price of $150. The UWP X5 Headset/Wireless Package, including the ECM-322BMP headset, UWP body pack transmitter and URX-M1 tuner module, is also planned to be available in July at a suggested list price of $699.
