I hope this is helpful for your projects.
|acoustic sensitivity||mechanical robustness||best usage||misc notes|
|dynamic microphone||LOW |
(lazy mass of the induction coil has to be set in motion by the sound waves)
|MEDIUM||uncontrollable conditions |
-> outdoor recording
|condenser microphone||HIGH |
(thin condenser membran is very sensitive and easily bendable)
(and very prone to humidity)
|ideal results in controllable conditions |
-> studio recording
|requires a power source (phantom power, +48V)|
|electret condenser||MEDIUM||EXTREMLY HIGH||good for very rough conditions |
-> eg difficult tv reports)
|requires no phantom power |
can be built very small ->"bug"
