Today, the development of studio condenser microphones mainly aims at expanding its dynamic range, besides smoothing the frequency response and improving the directional characteristics. It will be demonstrated that the inherent noise of microphones can be decreased by means of reducing the acoustical resistance of the transducer. Furthermore, it will be shown that handling sound pressure levels can be drastically improved by transducers incorporating a symmetrical push-pull design.
