Question about Sony ECM-MS907 Professional Microphone
It is only 7 months old. It used to work wonderfully. Now it does not. To be able to get any play back recording at all I have to place the volume to the maximum (while recording) and speak at 5 cms from it. The battery is ok.
Just in case you have having the same problem as me....
The reason why my microphone was giving mixed results was because I was using the wrong setting. The microphone slider says "90 degrees" and "120 degrees." I assumed that these angles refered to the area that the microphone picked up. So for a single narrow sound source, like my voice, the narrower, 90 degrees setting seemed appropriate.
Now that I have looked at the manual I see it is the reverse (weird but true. Perhaps the angles refer to the angles that the microphone ignores completely under each setting?).
I have been recording my voice. I noticed that sometimes the sound was good and other times the sound level was too low. I think that the reason is because sometimes I inadvertantly set the microphone to the 120 degree setting, which picks up my voice well, while at other times I set the mic to the 90 degree setting which attempts to pick up sound from a wider area, giving the central source less prominence.Setting the microphone to the 120 degree setting cured my problem. I hope it cures your problem too.
