Omni-directional flat shape lavalier microphone

The ECM-FT5 is an easy-to-hide flat-shape Electret condenser lavalier microphone delivering excellent sound reproduction in a stylish, ultra-miniature unit. It is also water-resistant and supplied with useful accessories, such as a tie-clip, taping mount and windscreen, making it ideal for a variety of applications where a discreet microphone system is required.

Two versions available

The ECM-FT5BC is supplied with a Sony 4-pin connector (SMC9-4P), for use with DWX and WL-800 Series wireless systems. The ECM-FT5BMP is supplied with a Sony 4-pin (SMC9-4P) connector for use with UWP Series wireless systems.

Flat shape makes it easy to hide

The slim 4.9-mm profile of the ultra-miniature ECM-FT5 is designed to be easily concealed under clothing, and its sleek contours help prevent noise pick-up from garments.

Professional quality sound reproduction

The ECM-FT5 has a frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz, sensitivity of -43 dB and an inherent noise level of less than 26 dB SPL.

Windscreen

A small windscreen is used to suppress strong wind noise.

Durable metal body blocks interference

Unique to Sony, the metal body of Sony’s ECM-FT5 offers increased durability and improved audio quality by blocking vibration and resonance. Another advantage of the metal construction is it shields the microphone, blocking RF noise interference.

Water-resistant design

A moisture repellent screen covers the microphone aperture to help prevent sweat and dampness from entering the case.

Tie clip and taping mount for attaching to clothing

A tie clip attaches the microphone to clothing by clipping on a pocket, button-hole or other suitable parts of a garment. A taping mount can attaches the microphone directly to the fabric’s surface.
