Condenser microphones - A tutorial

Neville Fletcher

Abstract


The operation of several types of condenser microphones was analyzed. The microphones analyzed included standard omnidirectional measuring microphones, simple cardioid microphones and studio microphones with adjustable response pattern. The physics underlying their operation was discussed and the approach to a detailed analysis using electrical network analogs was also outlined.
