  1. capacitor mike

    A capacitor microphone, also known as a condenser microphone, is a type of microphone that uses a capacitor (condenser) to convert acoustic energy into electrical energy. It comprises of two plates with a voltage between them; one plate is fixed, while the other plate moves in response to sound waves. This movement changes the capacitance, creating an electrical signal that replicates the original sound. Capacitor microphones require a power source to maintain the electrical charge between the plates, which can be provided by a battery or phantom power from an external source. These microphones are often used in studio situations due to their superior sound quality and sensitivity.
