Why are Low Impedance Microphones Better Than High-Imp. Microphones come in a variety of types based on a variety of factors. For example, there are "dynamic" microphones that use a magnet and coil to convert sound waves into electrical signals by exploiting the physics of magnetic fields; there are "condensor" microphones that use a DC voltage source and a capacitor to convert sound waves into electrical signals by exploiting the physics of electric fields. However, there is another factor that leads to a split into two groups: high-impedance microphones and low-impedance microphones. (In principle, any mic can be high- or low- impedance regardless if it is a dynamic mic or a condensor. .. however, high-impedance condensor mics are not very common at all). We'll see below what defines a low-imp or high-imp mic. If you search on the web for information about microphones you'll see most sites advising to get low- imepdance microphones because they are better (they cost more though). These sites will usually state
