My beginner’s electronics book has now started to teach me about microphones, specifically Electret microphones.
While searching the web for more info, I stumbled upon an article where the author mentioned that when a microphone has high impedance it is critical to keep the cables connected to the microphone as short as possible or else the signal would degrade significantly.
I have been trying to make sense of such statement but so far I have failed miserably. No matter how I think about this I can’t imagine why a cable with such small impedance compared to a microphone’s huge impedance would matter at all.
Could someone please help me undestand this phenomenon?
In case it helps, here is a link to the YouTube video where this is mentioned.
