Question about Sony ECM719 Consumer Microphone

1 Answer

Sony ecm 719 doesn't aseem to be working properly

I bought a stereo sony ecm719 off ebay.
When I connected it to my computer and recorded some music from speakers near the computer I noticed it was not good quality and sounded really strange. The computer also seems to indicate that the mic recorded in mono. I did not get a battery with the mic so have bought one and will try this to see if it changes the problem.
Should this mic without plug in power and without a battery still be able to pick up something or nothing.
I am worried cos I need the mic for a concert in 2 weeks and may not be able to get it replaced.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi kollydogg

The mic you purchased is a condenser type that requires either a battery(you now have), or a sony power supply. Without it, I would expect it to not do much at all. The specs look ok on it. Good for bootlegging concerts :)

I have a Sony MZ-M200. I want to transfer live recordings that I have made of my concerts on MD to CD. I can load the recordings into the computer. How do I then burn them onto a blank CD?

You would have to use the Sony MiniDisc software to burn them as a standard CD. A better solution is to buy an actual stand-alone stereo "CD Recorder" and go from the MiniDisc player to the CD Recorder and it will record directly, including track marks if you make it a digital dub! Check into getting a Phillips audio CD recorder, and Sony still makes a stand alone CD recorder as well.

How do i connect my blackberry curve to the sony mex 2500. Bought of ebay,no operators manuel. Regards


1.) Turn off Stereo with the upper left button.
2.) Press and hold the EQ button just below it. the BT symbol will turn off, keep holding it, it will turn on, and then flash. when it flashes it is in pairing mode.
3.) go to connections/ Bluetooth on your phone and search for it. it will show up as XPLOD.
4.) the pairing code is "0000" enter and it will tell you connected xplod

to listen to music make sure it is in BT Audio, Also call quality is not that great, but it is an awesome unit to listen to some slacker/pandora over Bluetooth!!

My Sony dual tape deck does not record in stereo anymore.

Oxide deposits on heads can restrict audio transfer to tape. You may need to do a deep cleaning of record head. Depending on how much deposits are on heads may need no more than alchohol and Q-tip. Be sure to clean erase head and drive roller. Afterwards, try recording, then use headphones in jack on recorder to check for recording on both channels. If this works, problem is not in rest of equipment set up. If you still need help, email me
