Definitions for "Condenser Microphone"
Condenser is another word for capacitor. This microphone uses a charged capacitor to pick up the sound from the air and convert it into an electrical signal.
A type of microphone which picks up sound via a thin, flexible diaphragm placed in proximity to a metal plate - as opposed to the rigid diaphragm-and-coil system used by dynamic microphones. Condenser mics are very sensitive, especially to distant sounds and high frequencies. They have to be powered, which can be achieved by batteries, but for professional use a 48V DC Phantom Power supply is provided from the console via the balanced mic cable.
A type of microphone that uses an electrostatic diaphragm rather than an electromagnetic one. Generally, the microphones have a much better frequency response.
