S1 Pro  This information is applicable to the S1 Pro system

This list will be of interest mainly for S1 Pro system owners. Microphones with higher sensitivity will tend to sound louder than those with lower sensitivity. While sensitivity is not an indicator of quality or gain-before-feedback, it can have an impact on how loud the microphone sounds through the S1 Pro system.
