Grammy-winning engineer Todd Whitelock reviews the Sony C100 microphone:

Incorporating double microphone capsules and a noise elimination structure originally employed in the C-800G microphone, the C-100 delivers a broad frequency range of 20 to 50,000 Hz and excellent reproduction of vocal and musical qualities. The condenser element of the C-100 microphone provides a selectable pick-up pattern (Omni/Uni/bi-directional) for various recording applications.
