This year, Sony released three new “high-resolution” microphones for the first time since their 1992 release of the legendary Sony C800G, a studio mic famous not only for its amazing detail and top end, but also for its hefty price tag. Of the batch, the most anticipated new release for us has been the Sony C‑100, an LDC vocal mic that follows in the footsteps of the C800G, but for a fraction of the price.

As a 2-way large-diaphragm condenser, this thing is gorgeously detailed. Upon first listen, it delivers fast transients and transparent clarity on every source it’s put up against! Stay tuned for videos featuring the C‑100 as we get to spend some quality time with it at Sound Pure Studios, and give us a call at (919) 682‑552 if you’d like to take it for a spin with our free Try Before You Buy demo program.
