The CS907, which is the one I have and thus may be similar to what you're 
looking at is a good deal less sensitive than is the DS-70P.  Also, be aware 
that the DS-70P has no wind protection to speak of.  The DS-70P operates on 
power to nic.  What this means is that the recorder must transmit a small 
amount of power to the microphone through it's cord for it to work.  The 
DS-97, which I suspect is similar to the DS-90 needs a battery of it's own 
because it cannot take advantage of the power to mic feature.  IF it's 
classroom recording you want to do however, I'd go with the DS-70P.

Subject: [bct] Sony ds70p microphone or cs90 microphone?

Hi everyone-
I have definitely decided on getting the olympus ws-320 as my recorder
for doing audio reviews, recording classes, music or hopefully just
about anything.  I also thought it would be nice to have an external
microphone to help with class recordings or other things as well.  In
looking on amazon, i found the ds70p which i also heard marries review
of on bct and it looks quite good.  it's also only $35 on amazon as well
in the used section and around $20 on ebay.  Now i was also looking at
the cs90 microphone and that one seems even better but it is a little
more expensive.  It also runs on a battery, why is that and can it
easily be replaced?  Also, if i get one of these mics, would i need the
sound professionals bineral in ear mics as well?  I was looking at those
too.  I'm not really sure what to get since this is all new to me.
Thanks and regards
