Comparing MEMS and Electret Condenser (ECM) Microphones


Perhaps you remember the marketing campaign from a few years ago with the phrase, "Can you hear me now?" More and more devices being designed today, from wearables to home assistants, are being asked to "hear" their environment. The correct microphone makes it possible for applications to accurately capture almost any sound, with the two most common technologies used for constructing microphones being MEMS and electret condenser. Although the two technologies work on similar principles, there are many use cases for choosing one over the other. With that in mind, we will review MEMS and electret condenser microphone basics, compare the differences between the technologies, and outline the advantages of each solution.
