The Pros and Cons of Buying a Microphone

Should You Buy a Microphone?

Microphones are an important piece of equipment for any musician or vocalist. They allow you to sing and play your instrument in a way that is true to the original sound, without the distortion caused by speakers or other audio equipment. However, there are many different types of microphones on the market today, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.

One type of microphone is the dynamic mic. These are usually best for live performances because they can handle high sound pressure levels without distortion. They also have a wide frequency response and better transient handling than condenser microphones do. However, they tend to be less sensitive than other types of mics on the market today, so you may need to turn your amp up more or speak closer to it in order to get a good enough level from them.


One drawback with this type of microphone is that if you bump into one during an energetic performance, there’s a chance that either the coil might break or its diaphragm will move around too much – which could cause feedback as well as other problems with audio quality.

If you don’t want a dynamic mic, condenser mics are also an option. They can be better for low sound pressure levels because they have a wider range of sensitivity and lower self-noise than other types of microphones on the market today do. That means you don’t need to turn up your amp quite as high or speak so close to it in order to get good enough audio quality from them, which is especially great if you’re working with limited space like when recording certain instruments or vocals into your laptop – though that may take some getting used to since there’s more room for error when using this type of mic.

One downside associated with these kinds of microphones is that they tend not work well outdoors due to wind noise and lack protection against weather conditions.
