Sony C-800G Large-Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone

Capture every nuance of any voice or instrument across the full frequency range in stunning detail with the Sony C-800G large-diaphragm tube condenser.
The use of a rigorously selected vacuum tube gives the Sony C-800G microphone its superb sonic quality, particularly at high frequencies and with exceptionally low noise levels. With a wide dynamic range and ability to resolve subtle sound detail, the sonic quality is expressed as rich, natural, and sensitive with an outstanding response to fast transients.

Selectable directivity

The C-800G provides electronically selectable directivity, either omnidirectional or uni-directional, for maximum flexibility and control over pickup angle.

Advanced cooling system

The first microphone in the world to incorporate a built-in thermo-electric cooling system employing a semiconductor device, heat pipe, and heat sink, which greatly contribute to the low noise and low distortion characteristics.

Critical vocal recordings

The C-800G is particularly suitable for critical vocal recording in recording studios and movie and video post-production houses, where sound clarity and nuance are essential.

High sensitivity

With a high sensitivity of -32 dB/Pa, this microphone can capture subtle nuances at high frequencies with low noise levels and minimum distortion.

AC power supply unit

The AC-MC800G power supply unit is supplied as part of the C-800GPAC1 condenser microphone package.
