There are roughly two types of commonly known vocal microphones. The first one is a condenser microphone, and the second is a dynamic microphone.
The dynamic microphone generally costs less than 100 dollars. The condenser microphone usually costs more than 500 dollars.
The sound quality of a condenser microphone also depends on the quality of a pre-amplifer. This is because you need a pre-amplifier to supply the power to the condenser microphone.
A condenser microphone is of superior quality in comparison to a dynamic microphone, and can really pick up and duplicate the sound of an individual’s natural voice. On the other hand, it is also easy to pick up other noises as well.
However, if an individual can use the noise well in conjunction, they can showcase and use the noises to enhance and blend well with their voice.
The most common way is to use the voice’s ability to produce a raspy or hoarseness effect when singing.
If you leak a little air while singing when you use the condenser microphone then your voice will still sound rich and that leaking of air sound will not be picked up or noticed by the microphone.
However, if the amount of breath is too much and/or the leaking air makes a gasping sound, the microphone will pick it up (making it noticeable) and your singing voice will not sound as good.
Note:If you cannot control the amount of leaking air when singing, please try the following to gain more control: Stick out the lower portion of your jaw to pull the genioglossus muscle. Then, move the hyoid bone and the larynx to a more forward position. The obturator muscle and the dilator muscle will widen, making it easier to control the amount of exhalation going through vocal folds.
If you try to stick out your lower jaw too much or too far, the muscles are extended and become stiff, and will negatively effect your vocalization. Always be careful and aware to what degree you are applying to your muscles when extending or contracting.
