Hi guys, I am thinking of working on a new project and am curious as to what the dB range and sensitivity of the bootlegMIC is, and if there is any way to improve both. Thanks :)

i dont know what the exact dB range is, but i think its something like 110dB or so, maybe 120dB. the sensitivity is completely unknown. the datasheet for the capsule might help, but that is for a different wiring. you can make a small test rig with earbud hadphones and tubing. put the earbud in one end of the tubing, and the mic in the other. you can then get relative measurements. if you have a microphone capsule or dB meter that is calibrated, you can then test your rig and get absolute measurements.
