Yamaha's own press release states that they're condenser mics. Yamaha's manual stresses the importance of connecting the mic cables before powering on the unit (which is a concern due to the phantom power being on TRS jacks, which don't implement ground-first connections). Telling someone that these are dynamic implies that you can use the mic in situations that you can't (connecting it to an iOS device, connecting it directly to a powered speaker). And just in general, it's important to be right about the information available to people.Yes, because everyone assumed they were condenser mics (as previously mentioned). Many reviews are wrong. One of the biggest audio magazines in the world has a different glaring error in a recent review of an electronic drum kit. These things happen all the time. That doesn’t mean that the magazines are correct though. I’d be very happy to look at your in-depth analysis of the EAD and pass it on to Hamamatsu. I have one question though - what does anyone have to gain from saying they are dynamics?
I'll ask again for anyone to show a video of these mics working without phantom power. I can record one showing them not working, then suddenly turning on when phantom power is applied.
Also, that image looks much more like condenser diaphragms, and not the coil + magnet present in a dynamic
