What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone will connect directly to a 3.5mm socket on devices such as portable audio recorders so that setup is quick and easy. A condenser microphone is ideal for recording podcasts or interviews to be transmitted or played back later on.

What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all the audio of an instrument or voice. Using battery power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has an omni-directional polar pattern which means it can pick up audio from any direction. This will allow you place the microphone centrally – on a table, for example – allowing you to record easily without having to adjust the microphone. Easily capture audio from different directions, such as a two-way interview or round table discussion, without adjusting any equipment.

how far from a person speaking at regular volume would this pick up, we need to set up a temp conference room ( committe around a table ) and wish the public to hear the discussion. the room is approx 12mt x 8mt and the table is 8mt x 4mt. 

Asked by: cabby
This would be impossible to answer as it would vary based on the person's voice, background noise, the acoustics of the room and so on. based on your room measurements and presuming a committee of approx 10 people you would likely want 3 - 5 of these.
