Microphones and Phantom Power

Robert Katz Leave a Comment

From: Edward Woodhead

My comments are: I have a sony ECM-999PR electret condenser microphone and recently purchased a Rode NT1. The Rode requirers phantom power to work. Is it safe to use phantom power with an electet condenser microphone?

Hi, Edward. I don’t know the Sony model. If it came with a professional “Cannon” XLR connector and if it specifies balanced low impedance output, then it will not be harmed by phantom power.

Hope this helps,
