The condenser microphone Avisoft Bioacoustics CM16/CMPA provides a good compromise between sensitivity and flatness of the frequency response. It consists of an externally polarized metalized film diaphragm and a metal back plate. The capsule is replaceable in order to handle the relatively low durability of the thin diaphragm. This microphone model requires an additional 200V polarization voltage that is supplied by the UltaSoundGate base units. An optional USB-powered heating module can prevent condensation when the microphone is being used in the field.
