What is a Dynamic Microphone?
A dynamic microphone is what you see used at live performances, church sermons and most any event that takes place outside of a recording studio.
There’s a very good reason for that. Two, actually.
Dynamic microphones are less sensitive to sound, in a good way.
Imagine being at a wedding ceremony and all you can hear is the bride’s bawling mother coming through the PA system.
The second reason is that dynamic microphones are way more durable than other types. They can withstand rough handling, and that has to do with the way the diaphragm picks up sound. We’ll discuss different microphone types in a future article.
So if you’re using your microphone outside of a recording studio, especially in front of an audience, you’ll definitely want to be using a dynamic mic.
What you’ll love about this Dynamic Mic
Solid, cool to the touch and surprisingly eye-catching, this dynamic microphone is sure to get the job done right, every time.
Hold the dynamic mic in your hand and you’ll feel its weighted, professional grade construction right away. This is not a toy microphone.
The built in windscreen reduces the impact of plosive consonants and wind noise. Plosive consonants, or simply plosives, describes the pushed air that letters p, t, k, b, d and g make when pronounced, and can create a popping noise in some lower end microphones.
You have enough to think about when making your presentation or delivering your sermon. Wondering if your voice will be heard by everyone should NOT be one of them.
You’ll need a cable to use your wired dynamic microphone.
Maybe you already have one.
Maybe you need a new one.
And if you don’t have one of these cables already laying around, this isn’t an optional add-on. It’s a requirement.
Normally, a gold plated fifteen foot heavy duty TS to XLR cable will cost you about $20.
But you’re getting it absolutely free, already included inside your microphone’s package. With the male quarter inch end of the cable, you’ll plug right into most PA systems and be ready to go.
Nothing extra to buy, no mandatory accessories sold as “optional” add-ons.
Perfect for lead vocals and spoken word applications
Get it in Chrome, Rose Gold or Arctic White.
Each color looks great.
Each color will get the job done right.

It’s a creative solution to stop the mic from rolling away from you.
The aluminum mesh casing protects the windscreen, which in turn reduces ambient noise from entering the diaphragm.
Did You Know:
What’s a polar pattern?
A polar pattern describes how well a microphone will “hear” sound from various directions.
Simply put, it describes the mic’s directionality.
You’ll choose a polar pattern based on how you’ll be using your microphone. Are you using it for a speaking engagement in a noisy setting, or do you plan on recording podcasts in a quiet room?
The most common patterns are cardioid, super-cardioid, and omnidirectional.
I’ll make a full write up about this in the future, but for now, just know that the microphone on this page has a super-cardioid polar pattern. It offers the narrowest pickup range, and therefore the greatest rejection of ambient sound. They’re also feedback resistant.
