Why Choose a Dynamic Over a Condenser?
Dynamic Mic Characteristics

  • Minimizes room noise – perfect for sonically untreated rooms
  • Smooth audio capture with classic warm broadcast sound
  • Robust construction with no external power requirements

Condenser Mic Characteristics

  • Extremely sensitive – picks up the subtlest sounds in any environment
  • Very articulate audio with a detailed high-frequency capture
  • Requires external power to operate (phantom or battery)


How Does a Dynamic Mic Work?
Dynamic microphones use a diaphragm connected to a coil of wire that surrounds a magnet .

The diaphragm is moved by changing sound pressure. This moves the coil, which causes current to flow as it moves through the magnetic field. An electrical signal is then sent to your recording device or speakers which records or amplifies the audio.

Dynamic microphones are extremely durable and can handle very high sound pressure levels (SPL).
