In order to reach a large number of people while talking, there will be important for the use of the microphone. This device collected sound and amplified it. Though all microphones capture sounds, there are different kinds of a microphone with varying operating capacities and principles. The more commonly used microphones nowadays are dynamic microphones.

In order to reach a large number of people while talking, there will be important for the use of
These microphones use a coil of wire which is attached to a stationary magnet, or moving diaphragm. When sound hits the diaphragm, it moves in such a way that it makes the magnet to infer a current in the coil because of its motion. Then, this current is amplified and also converted as a digital signal or stored as an analog sound signal. Condenser microphones use the concept of capacitance, and they are more kind of complex. On the other hand, dynamic microphones do not need to be operated by any power. Thus they are passive. The electrical current is being processed quickly after it has been produced by the coil and sent to the recording device.

Microphones turn sounds into an energy signal. There are different kinds of microphones; however, the vast majority of microphones today can be grouped into two major categories: the condenser and dynamic microphones. The following are the differences between the condenser and dynamic microphones: a. DEFINITION: Condenser microphones are commonly used in studios to pick up sounds with great detail and accuracy. They capture high frequencies are used for delicate vocals. The critical thing to note about this process is that condenser microphones are delicate and are used to pick up and amplify more delicate sounds.

On the other hand, Dynamic microphones work best to record loud, and hence they are used for live performances, capturing strong signals and for powerful vocals. b. MODE OF OPERATION: Condenser microphones capture high frequencies with a light-weight membrane (referred to as the diaphragm) suspended by a fixed plate. Sound pressure against the diaphragm causes it to move, which in turn creates electrical output. In contrast, dynamic microphones use a wire coil inside the receiver to amplify signal picked up by the diaphragm. c. EXAMPLES: The following are examples of essential condenser microphones: Neuman U87, AKG C414, and Telefunken U47. While the following are examples of crucial dynamic microphones: Shure SM57, Shure SM58, Electrovoice RE20, and Sennheiser 421 II.
