  • Patent number: 4456796
    Abstract: A partition wall is held in contact with a back electrode on the opposite side from a diaphragm, and a fine acoustic path is formed in at least one of the contact surfaces of the partition wall and the back electrode. The acoustic path communicates with a sound hole made in the back electrode and a sound hole made in the partition wall. The velocity component of sound reaching the back of the diaphragm is controlled by the fine acoustic path.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4281222
    Abstract: An electret diaphragm is housed in a case, a back electrode is disposed opposite the back of the electret diaphragm, a damper cloth is disposed in contact with the back of the back electrode, and a terminal plate is placed behind the damper cloth and connected with the back electrode. The back electrode, the damper cloth and the terminal plate are held by a tubular back electrode holder. The back of the back electrode holder is closed by a printed circuit board to define a rear compartment in the back electrode holder, and an impedance converter is disposed in the rear compartment. A sound hole is made for intercommunication of the rear compartment with the outside to achieve unidirectional directivity.

  • Patent number: 4236051
    Abstract: In an electret microphone in which an impedance conversion element housing chamber for an impedance conversion element is provided on the side opposite from an electret diaphragm with respect to a back electrode in a capsule, an isolating metal plate is disposed in the impedance conversion element housing chamber in spaced relation to the back electrode to define between the isolating metal plate and the back electrode an air compartment which is pneumatically isolated from the impedance conversion element chamber.
