Dynamic broadcast microphones are more durable than condenser broadcast microphones, but they do not produce as clear of a sound. Condenser broadcast microphones are more sensitive than dynamic broadcast microphones, but they can be damaged more easily.

Lavalier Microphones

Lavalier microphones are small and discreet, making them perfect for use in theatre productions. Lavalier microphones clip onto the performer’s clothing and transmit their voice directly to the microphone. Lavalier microphones are typically condenser microphones, and they produce a clear sound.

Tabletop microphones sit on a table or other surface and transmit the sound of the performers directly to the microphone.
