Condenser Microphone

Condenser microphones are highly sensitive microphones that are ideal for acoustic instruments, ambient recordings, and vocals. Unlike Dynamic microphone, condenser mics require phantom power to function. This helps to also improve sensitivity and sound output for cleaner more accurate sounds. Used in both live and studio applications.

Condenser Microphones are most commonly used in a studio environment and are designed specifically for picking up all surrounding noise. A condenser mic typically features a thin plastic film, coated on one side with gold or nickel, and mounted very close to a conductive stationary back plate. An external power supply applies a polarising voltage to the diaphragm by an external power supply. This voltage can also be conducted by the charge on an electret material in the diaphragm or on the backplate.
