Microphone Recommendation


Wanted to get a recommendation on a small microphone to buy for an
Android BeagleBoard project.

Thank you!

the audio in jack on the Beagle boards is line level. Whatever mic you
choose needs
a preamp to get it up to that.

If you want a mic preamp 5V powered use MAX9810.

The MAX9810 datasheet suggests it's a replacement for the FET in the microphone cartridge. Can it be used driven by the microphone with no voltage going to the FET by just using the mic as input to it?

Ahhhh! sorry I've confused the reference.
You have to use MAX9812 not the MAX9810.

I'm using it and it is perfect to work with BB.
