The 907 is a cheaper mic that sells for $70. . of the two mics that are set in this patern The sony 907 and the 957, the 907 seems to have a wider stereo immage but the 957 has a higher SPL and will take more of a pounding. The sony 957 makes a great live outdoor mic. I have used it to record fireworks and it does it well with no over loading.
