Understanding Mic Specs, Part 2

Davida Rochman | February 29, 2012
Last week we launched a video series to help our blog readers understand how microphones work and discussed the Operating Principle in Part I.

In Part II, we define Frequency Response—the range of frequencies a microphone can reproduce—and explain the differences between mics with flat response vs. shaped response. Watching the video will help you make better choices when buying microphones and will also ensure you understand how to get the best results.
