a6000 audio

I'm trying to understand how to get sound into this camera.

So far, I'm aware of:

  1. built-in mic
  2. Sony ECM-XYST1M - camera-mounted stereo mic with adjustable pickup pattern
  3. Sony ECM-W1M - wireless lavalier system with built-in mic which apparently also has a 1/8" jack for external mics
  4. Sony XLR-K1M - $800 2-channel XLR adaptor bundled with a shotgun mic
  5. independent external sound recording devices which need to be synced in post-production

From the dpreview review, it appears that there is no volume control, no way to turn off automatic gain control, and no headphone output.

Have I gotten all that right?

Is there anything else I should be aware of?
