SONY C80 Uni-directional condenser microphone suitable for vocal/voice recording. Inheriting the microphone capsule used in the C-100 and using the same material as the C-800G for the diaphragm, this microphone inherits the essence of the predecessors.

The dual diaphragm configuration suppresses sound characteristics changes with distance (proximity effect), enabling stable recording/distribution. "Noise Elimination Construction" succeeded from C-800G / C-100 prevents acoustic vibration resulting in low noise and clear sound.


  • Large 25mm microphone capsule emphasises the presence of sound.
  • Dual-diaphragm structure suppresses proximity effect for stable recording and broadcast.
  • Precision resin backplate, for reduced acoustic impedance and high sensitivity.
  • Rich mid-range characteristics ensure a precise vocal pickup.
  • Extended low-end and natural sound provide a realistic reproduction of instruments.
  • Switchable low-cut filter reduces the pickup of low-frequency and ambient noise.
