Sony announced the Stereo Microphone STM10 at MWC last week. This unique accessory, which is compatible with the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet, allows you to capture rich detailed audio. Sony says that the small recording device is simple to set up, fitting straight into the Xperia Z2’s 3.5mm headphone jack (5-pole audio connector).
The aluminium STM10 has a high sensitivity stereo condenser microphone with a 90° tilt function so that you can point the mic to the main sound source. It sounds like a nice accessory to have for family and party clips, although we are curious to see how much of a difference it actually makes versus the Xperia Z2 mic. The Sony STM10 Stereo Microphone will launch in early April at a price of £39.99 in the UK.
