Sony C-100 Hi-Res Condenser Microphone

Side-address studio condenser microphone incorporating advanced microphone technology making it compatible with Hi-Resolution Audio
MFR# C100

Product Description

The Sony C-100 Hi-Res Condenser Microphone is a two-way condenser microphone, compatible with Sony High-Resolution Audio, featuring an extended frequency response from 20 Hz up to 50 kHz. Sony has designed the C-100 with Hi-Resolution Audio in mind, using advanced technology and housing developed from the C-800G to allow for incredibly wide frequency range and low self noise. The C-100 is suitable for critical vocal and instrument recording in recording studios, as well as live and broadcast situations.

Incorporating newly developed double microphone capsules and noise elimination structure, originally employed in the C-800G microphone, the C-100 delivers a broad frequency range of 20 Hz to 50 kHz and excellent reproduction of vocal and musical qualities. The condenser element of the C-100 microphone provides a selectable pick-up pattern (Omni/Uni/Bi) for various recording applications.

Features:

  • Excellent Sound Quality: Two-way diaphragm structure realizes both broad high range and resonant mid-low range and gives great vocal presence
  • Wide Frequency Response:The C-100 microphone has a broad frequency response (20 Hz to 50 kHz) and provides superb sound reproduction quality for High-Resolution Audio
  • Noise Elimination Construction: Two-part metallic body structure succeeded from C-800G microphone prevents acoustic vibration resulting in low noise and clear sound
  • Switchable Polar Patterns: The C-100 microphone features switchable uni-directional, omni-directional and Figure-8 polar patterns for various recording applications
  • Low-Cut Filter: Low-Cut filter switch helps eliminate low-frequency noise and proximity effect
  • Pad Switch: An -10 dB pad switch on C-100 microphone provides added headroom and minimizes distortion caused by transient peaks.

Love it. Use it for rap, melodic rapping, great sound quality! Running it with the Apollo Quad MkII to my Macbook Pro. 0 complaints!

I prefer this mic to u87 in so many circumstances. Thank you sony for introducing a remarkable, super defined and affordable mic. I love it, my clients love it. Sounds great compared to all the classics. Sometimes I’ll even use this over a c-800 in sessions. Travel is super easy with this as there is no need for a power supply. The 8” pelican type case fits in my backpack easily.. love this mic.

By Kyle B on January 10, 2020

Amazing ok vocals! Wow! Compare this to your favorite mic on audio test kitchen to see how it sounds. No bias just lovely.

By Olaf on December 23, 2019

I really wanted to hate this microphone because it isn’t a C800, but for rap vocals this does better than anything I’ve tried for less than $3500.

Can sound slightly atonal with certain singers if too compressed when tracking.

Constantly getting “hey, what mic is this!?” with vocalists I’m working with for the first time.

Sounds great tracking with light compression and a deesser, doesn’t do well through a super baked series of compressors on the way in.

Can sound slightly atonal with certain singers if too compressed when tracking.

Surprisingly incredible as a drum room mic through as much tube gear as you can get in the chain.

Me and C100 have made friends.

Amazing mic!! I compared it to everything in the Vintage King LA mic room, about 50 high end mics, and it has that cut through the mix sound of the $10,000 C-800G. Love it!

By Scottsdale M on August 28, 2019

I’ve tried this mic on pretty much anything, from vocals to strings, horns, percussion. It just works on everything, great versatile performance for the price.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
