Handling Noise

A specification for quantifying the sensitivity of a microphone to movement and shock. Handling noise is expressed as an equivalent sound pressure level as is a function of the construction of the microphone. This is an often overlooked concern when choosing a microphone as there can be vast differences in handling noise between two otherwise similar mics. Some manufacturers actually employ internal shock mounting devices to reduce handling noise.
