Why Is Critical Distance Important for Determining Where the Microphone Is Placed?

- Jul 24, 2018-

If a microphone is placed at a distance from the speaker's critical distance or further, the sound quality of the speech will be poor. This poor sound quality is often described as "reverberation," and "the sound of the bottom of the barrel." The speaker's words will be difficult to distinguish, because the reflected sound overlaps with the speech sound and the speech sound becomes blurred.
