Microphones originated from the 19th century, with the first practical carbon microphone being invented by Thomas Alva Edison. A breakthrough in the 1930’s then introduced the dynamic microphone, which has a lower distortion level than the carbon microphone and come with a variety of features, being used mostly for on-stage performances. Microphones work by taking sound waves and converting them into an electric signal, using electromagnetic induction.
