Condenser

A condenser microphone is a type of microphone characterized by an electrolyzed ultra-thin fixed plate. This type of microphone excels at capturing very quiet or delicate audio and has the widest frequency response curve of any microphone type. They vary in cost from $30 to over $10,000.

They can be either USB or XLR, and sometimes they can even be both.

Due to their sensitivity, condenser microphones often need substantial room acoustics treatment to get the best sound from them.
