To close out our four part video series, we'll be discussing a microphone's Electrical Output.  When selecting a microphone, it's important that the mic is compatible with the electrical characteristics and the physical connections of your audio mixer, recorder or computer. If it isn't, you may experience problems, such as humming, buzzing or no audio at all.

Watch Part IV of our "Understanding Microphone Specifications" series, as we help you learn the importance behind a microphone's sensitivity, impedance and wiring configuration. We'll also cover phantom power and share specifications that only apply to condenser mics.
