Audio Quality is a Disappointment
from Centerville, UT on 3/19/2011
After using Sony's acclaimed ECM-MS907 for more than 5 years, I ordered the Sony ECM-CS10 to use for audio journal keeping while on the road. When it arrived, I compared the audio quality of its recordings to that of my MS907. In spite of its pleasing aesthetics, I found it to be a sad disappointment!!! The ECM-CS10 is a very noisy microphone with an audio quality far inferior of what I would expect from a Sony mic. (I wonder whether this is because it is a plug-in-power mic). I have since used other lapel style microphoes (mono only) and have found their quality to be far better than this microphone.
Convenient Built-in Stand

slide a button and two legs extend from one arm of the clip., Very clever stand
Small, convenient to use to get stereo recordings with some models of digital recorders. (those that lack built-in stereo mikes).
