It seems I'm the only person who doesn't understand why Mic out port on Sony ecm-xyst1m external microphone doesn't work with headphones, while having the same jack.
I bought that one and first thought it is broken, but at service they told it is not supposed to be used with headphones. I tried to google the topic but it seems nobody even care about that. At the same time very similar microphone from Sony, just wireless - Sony ECMW1M does have headphones output.
Taking into account that A6000, A6300 and even A6500 cameras doesn't have headphones output as well, that sounds like a really stupid design from Sony.
What's the point of having all those switches on sound recording if you can't hear what is being recorded?
