If you're serious about audio quality, you want to ensure you get a decent microphone for your work. However, in microphones, 2 main types exist, that of condenser microphones and dynamic microphones, but what exactly is the difference and which one should you get?

Condenser microphones capture audio in a far greater frequency band and tend to be of much higher audio quality, however, they are not as simple as a plug and play setup. Condenser microphones are incredibly sensitive and need to have a suitable recording environment with sound dampeners and no external noise in order to capture audio well. Condenser microphones are ideal for recording studio setups.

Dynamic microphones on the other hand capture a more limited band of frequencies which is ideal for recording sounds on location and outdoors. Dynamic microphones usually are used together with a windsock or "dead cat" to muffle out wind noise.
