How to Choose A Home Microphone?

- Aug 07, 2018-

Condenser microphones are basically better than dynamic microphones in terms of sound quality and sensitivity. Condenser microphones can record more harmonic elements and more details, so professional studios basically use condenser microphones for recording. However, if your environment is not good, such as the environment is noisy, the room has an echo, the use of condenser microphones will have the opposite effect, it is easy to record noise and echo, and this is a terrible thing. Therefore, if the environment is not good, the use of dynamic microphones is more suitable than condenser microphones, and even the headset electret is more suitable.

(1) If you are singing, in order to get professional quality recording effects, you can of course choose professional large diaphragm and medium diaphragm condenser microphone. But the premise is that your room decoration must meet certain recording acoustic requirements, such as no background noise, no obvious echo.

(2) If you are recording voice (radio drama, dubbing, podcast...), if you have the conditions, you can choose a gun-type small diaphragm condenser microphone for dubbing. They are generally super-pointing, which can easily record your voice without being easy to record background noise. However, their recording of the song is slightly inferior to the large diaphragm condenser microphone described above.

(3) If the room conditions do not meet the acoustic environment requirements, and you have no conditions to improve the room decoration, we suggest you choose a dynamic microphone. Dynamic microphones are much less sensitive to ambient noise and echo than condenser microphones.
