Sony Electronics announces the ECM-W2BT wireless microphone and the ECM-LV1 compact stereo lavalier microphone


The microphones provide high-quality and stable audio recording for vloggers, YouTubers and video creators


Sony Electronics has just released two new microphones, the ECM-W2BT Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe compatible wireless microphone and ECM-LV1 compact stereo lavalier microphone, to allow content creators and vloggers to increase the sound quality of their content.

The ECM-W2BT wireless microphone is capable of recording low-noise digital sound by connecting the receiver to a camera1 equipped with a digital audio interface compatible Multi Interface Shoe. The digital audio signal output from the receiver can be recorded directly on the camera body without an external audio cable.

The wireless microphone system is capable of recording high-quality audio with lower noise and a stable connection, enabling Vloggers, YouTubers and video creators to pair the ECM-W2BT with the ECM-LV1 stereo lavalier microphone and one of Sony’s cameras[i], with digital audio compatibility. 

The ECM-W2BT has been completely redesigned for high sound quality using an advanced omnidirectional mic capsule to capture clear sound recordings from any direction. The ECM-W2BT also allows audio recording flexibility by increasing the stability of the wireless connection between microphone and receiver, even with obstacles or in crowded environments with additional wireless activity, so clear audio can be recorded during street performances, product reviews, food reviews, and travel vlogs. In locations with good visibility, communication is possible at up to 200m, significantly increasing the flexibility of audio recording. The newly adopted Qualcomm® aptX™ Low Latency[ii] codec also provides both high-quality audio recording and low latency.

The ECM-W2BT wireless microphone promotes creative freedom thanks to its various sound recording functions. Three sound pick-up modes – MIC mode, MIX mode and a new RCVR mode – allow the user to record sound and ambient sound based on their desired preference.

The ECM-W2BT mic supports stereo audio input with an external 3.5mm stereo mini-jack to allow for stereo sound pick up, so it can be used in combination with the stereo-capable lavalier microphone, such as the ECM-LV1 compact stereo lavalier microphone, as an unobtrusive microphone that can easily attach to the subject’s clothing and record sound with increased realism. Since the receiver is equipped with 3.5mm audio output, the ECM-W2BT can also be used with camera models that are not equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe.

For challenging recording environments, the ECM-W2BT wireless microphone includes an attenuator function. Content creators can select one of three attenuator levels depending on the volume of the sound source to record excessively loud sounds at a lower volume or amplify quieter sounds to record louder audio. The ECM-W2BT also includes a windscreen to reduce wind noise, which is especially helpful when recording outdoors. A battery assist function is available, for a longer operation time, via the power supply from the camera’s Multi Interface Shoe, which allows the receiver to operate for up to nine hours[iii]. For easy reference, the ECM-W2BT includes a LINK lamp to notify the user of the status of the communication between the microphone and the receiver and a POWER lamp to easily check the remaining battery charge. The ECM-W2BT comes with a connector-protect holder-cover for the Multi Interface foot of the receiver, which can be used to carry the receiver and microphone as one unit. It can also be used as a microphone stand, for stable microphone positioning during interviews or other stationary uses.


The ECM-LV1 compact stereo lavalier microphone also allows for high-quality sound pick up paired with a compact design for easy carrying and convenience while shooting. The ECM-LV1 includes a windscreen for additional noise reduction, and the 360-degree rotatable clip allows, for horizontal attachment to a necktie, or vertical attachment to a pocket, with the microphone attached at the same angle.

Pricing and Availability

The ECM-W2BT wireless microphone and the ECM-LV1 Compact Stereo Lavalier Microphone will be available in South Africa soon.
