C-80

The Sony C-80 Microphone is a two-way condenser microphone, the latest member of the C-Series family. The C-80 provides a fixed cardioid polar pattern and is at home both on vocal duties and a wide variety of instruments.

Utilising a dual diaphragm design, the C-80 suppresses unwanted proximity and maintains the same noise-eliminating housing from its big brother, the C-100, and its overseas cousin, the C-800G.

  • Excellent Sound Quality

    Powerful and rich mid-low frequency range provides vocals and voice recordings with a core sound and presence.

  • Dual Diaphragm Configuration

    Dual diaphragm configuration provides stable recording by suppressing sound characteristics changes with distance (proximity effect)

  • Noise Elimination Construction

    Two-part metallic body structure succeeded from C-800G microphone prevents acoustic vibration resulting in low noise and clear sound.

  • Fixed Polar Pattern

    The C-80 microphone is a fixed Cardioid design for use in most major applications.

  • Low-Cut Filter

    Low-Cut filter switch helps eliminate low-frequency noise and proximity effect.

  • Pad Switch

    A -10dB pad switch on C-80 microphone provides added headroom and minimises distortion caused by transient peaks.
