  1. capacitor microphone

    A capacitor microphone, also known as a condenser microphone, is a type of microphone that uses a capacitor, or condenser, to convert acoustical energy into electrical energy. It consists of two plates with a voltage between them; one plate is movable (acting as the diaphragm which vibrates in response to sound pressure), while the other plate is fixed. The variation in distance between the two plates caused by the diaphragm’s movement changes the capacitance, generating a corresponding electric signal. These microphones are commonly used in professional recording settings due to their high sensitivity, accuracy, and ability to capture a wide frequency range.
