Understanding Mic Specs
At Shure, it's not only our passion to make great microphones, but also to ensure you know how to use your Shure mic for a particular purpose. That's why we've put together a four part video series that lays out the basics of how microphones work and understanding microphone specifications.
In Part I, we discuss the Operating Principle – how dynamic and condenser microphones work. Understanding these concepts is essential to choosing the right microphone for singers, presenters, or instrumentalists.
