Determine if the DM-70S is a dynamic microphone, condenser microphone, or another type. Each type has its own characteristics and is suitable for different applications.
The polar pattern determines the microphone’s sensitivity to sound from different directions. Common polar patterns include cardioid, supercardioid, and omnidirectional. Consider the polar pattern that suits your intended use, such as capturing sound from a single source or capturing sound from all directions.
The frequency response indicates the range of frequencies the microphone can accurately capture. Consider the specific frequency range and how it aligns with your intended use, such as vocal recording or instrument capturing.
Professional microphones are designed to withstand regular use and provide durability. Look for features such as rugged construction, shock mounts, and high-quality materials.
Check the microphone’s connectivity options to ensure compatibility with your recording or sound reinforcement setup, such as XLR or USB connections.
