Dynamic microphones are the often preferred option for those who are preparing outdoor broadcasting events such as concerts, speeches and even weddings. The main reason for dynamic microphones to be so popular with them is the fact that they are very well suited to allow easy handling for users even in the roughest environmental conditions. In other words, they are much sturdier and come fully equipped with the ability to do a better job than their ribbon element and condenser counterparts.


Dynamic microphones consist of several important internal components. One such component is the diaphragm that is located within the cartridge of the microphone. The diaphragm is the part responsible for the sound pickup. As sound enters the microphone, the diaphragm vibrates and converts the vibrations in to electrical signals that are then sent to a transformer. Then the electrical signals are sent through the cable in to a receiver than passes them on to an amplifier or PA system.


In dynamic microphones the most important component is the diaphragm. Just like every other piece of electrical equipment, it is possible for dynamic microphones to also malfunction due to many reasons. For instance, it is possible that a considerable impact could manage the intricate wiring within the microphone or to cause damage in the diaphragm. For instance, if one of the dynamic microphones is to be dropped and rolled down a stair case (or face a similar set of repeated impacts), it is possible for the positioning of the diaphragm to be altered. This can cause the sound pick up system to send out distorted and warped sound in to the PA system and cause disruption to the planned event. Sometimes, the diaphragm of dynamic microphones can even be unbalanced so that it is unable to move in any way and thus sound pickup can be ceased. Impact is the worst enemy of dynamic microphones as it can cause all sorts of complications even if the diaphragm is unaffected. However, in the event of high voltages coursing through the microphone, there is a slight possibility for the internal wiring to be damaged. Although impact cannot actually do much harm to the wiring, poor repair jobs and high voltage electrical currents can do some definite damage.


Although it is possible for owners to repair damages to dynamic microphones to a certain extent, it is best to let a professional handle the more serious injuries. For instance, in the event of diaphragm displacement, it is best to allow sound equipment professionals to take a look and repair the gadget rather than to attempt the repair yourself. As mentioned earlier, dynamic microphones are rather sturdy and good to use in many occasions, but poor repair jobs can cause complications later.
