Audio & Hifi: Dynamic microphone Video Guide

in this device the term dynamic refers to a special form of electromagnetism. A similar system is used in a bicycle dynamo. If an electrical conductor moves in a certain magnetic field, an electrical current is induced directly.

A dynamic microphone is a microphone that uses electromagnetism to convert sound into an electrical signal. The microphones are divided into two subtypes: an immersion coil microphone and a ribbon microphone. A voice coil microphone has a transparent plastic diaphragm on the rear side, under which there is a voice coil which is located in a gap of the permanent magnet. These microphones have a simple design. The construction of a loudspeaker is very similar. When the sound waves hit the membrane on the back of the device, the membrane and the voice coil move in rhythm. Due to the movements in the magnetic gap, some current is conducted into the coil. A microphone is already available. The sound is simply converted into an electrical signal voltage. Such microphones are often used on a stage. They are very robust and do not require any operating voltage. For this reason, diving coil microphones are very accident-proof.

In a studio, condenser or ribbon microphones are used. Although these microphones are not quite as robust, they offer a higher sound quality. An electromagnetic induction is also used as a functional principle in a ribbon microphone. Instead of a diaphragm, a wire coil is used with this type of microphone. Very thin aluminium strips are used for these devices. The membrane itself serves as an electrical conductor and vibrates in a magnetic gap. An aluminium ribbon has a much lower mass than a membrane with a wire coil. The sound waves can thus be tracked much better. A single electrical conductor can only generate a low signal voltage

For this reason, ribbon microphones are always equipped with an up transformer such as a transformer. It can be used to multiply the signal voltage of the ribbon. A factor of 30 is often used for this purpose. The sensitivity in the range of the output voltage in relation to the sound pressure normally remains under the voice coil microphones. For a ribbon microphone it is advisable to always use a first-class preamplifier. This amplifier should be able to work with low noise even at high gain. Ribbon microphones are bidirectional. This means that the sound arriving from the front is just as strong as the sound arriving from the rear. A sound arriving from the side cannot sufficiently set the ribbon in motion. Ribbon microphones are much more fragile than other microphones. For this reason, they must be treated with some caution. A small disadvantage is that they only offer limited treble reproduction. For this reason, the microphones are only used for special tasks where the brilliant highs are not quite so important. The microphones can be used, for example, to pick up a guitar amplifier. Modern ribbon microphones have an integrated amplifier. This allows the output level to be increased quickly and easily.
