Dynamic Microphone
Operates on the principle of
electromagnetic induction
Ribbon Microphone
Also based on
electromagnetic induction
Condenser Microphone
Operates on the principle of
Rode NT-1

Directional Response
A microphone’s sensitivity at various angles

Shure SM57
Rode NT-1
Royer R-121
Rode NTG-2
Rode NT2
Frequency Response
The changes in a microphone’s output over the audible frequency range
Rode NTG-2
Neumann U-87
Shure 520dx
Transient Response
How quickly a microphone’s diaphragm will react
Proximity Effect
An increase in low frequency response when a microphone is within 1 foot of the source.
Only with directional mics!
Shure Beta 58a

Microphone Dynamic Range
Equivilant Noise Rating (ENR)
A microphones electrical self noise. Measured in dB SPL.

Maximum SPL
The loudest signal a microphone can handle until distortion. Measured in dB SPL.
