Above picture shows how the capsule is fixed in the microphone. The capsule is glued on the top of the handle. After the glue dries out, it forms a rigid joint, and the capsule is covered with the ball grill. This is the conventional art of microphone assembly. However, the situations as follow are inevitable
To effectively improve the situations above for a better user experience, it is necessary to fit the shock absorber between the capsule and the handle for a quality microphone.
When the user holds a microphone, speaking or singing, the turning and shaking gestures easily vibrate the microphone. Since it’s a rigid joint between capsule and handle, the vibrations directly transmit to capsule and thus results to inevitable noise and further affects the sound quality.
Some microphones are designed with switches. The motion of turning on/off leads to noise coming out due to the vibration.
Bad habits of using microphones like violently shaking and tapping, or even make it fall to the ground will not only produce unpleasant noise but also might damage the capsule and the microphone.
The microphone handle is made of rigid materials, such as plastics and zinc alloys, so easily to have vibrations while touching, turning and shaking it. As it’s a rigid joint between the capsule and handle, the capsule would inevitably produce unwanted noise.
