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 of the audio of an instrument or voice. Using battery power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output – but they can be more sensitive to loud sounds.
What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone is fitted with a dual-cardioid polar pattern, which means it is more sensitive to sounds at the front of the microphone and less sensitive at the back. The pickup is based in one direction, which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound and gives it a high resistance to feedback.
What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone is designed to be used as an external microphone, with a camcorder or a portable voice recorder. This will allow you to capture higher quality audio, as the microphone can be used in a different location to the camera or recorder – such as in a mic stand or handheld. So whether you are recording an interview, making a demo tape for an audition or recording notes via dictation, the audio quality with be significantly improved using this external microphone compared to the built-in microphone.
