Polar Patterns
The polar pattern of a microphone determines how sensitive it is to receiving sounds as they arrive at different angles.
Super-Cardioid
Transducer Type
The transducer type is the manner in which the audio signal is converted into an electrical signal.
Dynamic
Address
The configuration of the capsule determining on which side the microphone is sung or spoken into.
Top
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
50 - 16,000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
94 dB
Output Impedance
This is the amount of impedance that the microphone allows.
290 ohms
Power Requirement
Condenser microphones require an external power source to operate. Typically a +48v DC charge commonly refereed to as Phantom Power.
None
Connection Type
This is the manner in which the microphone connects to the source unit. For wired microphones, this is the connector that directly connects the microphone to the mixer (or other input source unit). For wireless microphones, this is the connection that connects the microphones receiver to the mixer (or other input source unit).

What I Expected

February 10, 2012

Clean sound. Solid piece of equipment. I have total confidence that the mic won't go out on me in the middle of a song. I purchase it after reading other reviews, I am not disappointed. My only regret is that I didn't get the wireless mic.
