What Is the Frequency Response of A Microphone?

- May 14, 2018-

The frequency response refers to that when the microphone receives different frequency sounds, the output signal will amplify or attenuate as the frequency changes. The ideal frequency response curve is a horizontal line representing the characteristics that the output signal can truly represent the original sound, but this ideal situation is not easy to achieve. In general, the frequency response curve of a condenser microphone will be flatter than that of a moving coil. The common microphone frequency response curve is mostly high and low frequency attenuation, while the high frequency is slightly amplified; low frequency attenuation can reduce the interference of low frequency noise around the recording environment.
