The ECM-673 is a short shotgun, electret condenser-type microphone, which delivers excellent sound performance in field and studio production applications at an affordable price. This microphone is also tailored for use with HDV type camcorders.

Superb Sound Quality
The ECM-673 offers an excellent sensitivity of -36 dB (0 dB=1 V/Pa) and a low inherent-noise level of less than 17 dB SPL. This allows the microphone to be used for clear voice pickup, even in noisy working environments.

Flat-and-wide Frequency Response
The ECM-673 microphone has a flat-and-wide frequency response (40 Hz to 20 kHz) and delivers extremely smooth and natural sound reproduction.

Compact and Lightweight Design
The ECM-673 has been designed as a highly directional, compact, and lightweight short shotgun microphone. It measures only 200 mm (7 7/8 inches) in length, and weighs just 135 g (4.76 oz), maintaining good balance even when mounted on compact camcorders.

High Durability and Reliability
The vibration-resistant mechanism of the ECM-673 offers high durability and reliability, making it suitable for the harsh environments that can be encountered in field sound-acquisition.

Built-in Low-cut Filter
The built-in two-position (M, V) low-cut switch on the ECM-673 provides a simple method of reducing the effects of unwanted ambient noise.
