WORLD'S FIRST MICROPHONE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first microphone?
A microphone is a device for
converting acoustic power into electric power that has essentially similar wave
characteristics. Microphones convert sound waves into electrical voltages that
are eventually converted back into sound waves thru speakers. They were first
used with early telephones and then radio transmitters.
In 1876 Emile Berliner invented the world's first
microphone, inspired by the just invented telephone, he was looking for a way to
improve upon it.
Berliner managed to impress the Bell Telephone Company and sold them the patent
after Alexander Graham Bell invented the first useful microphone much to the joy
of Disc Jockeys everywhere.
