(Cl. 179—122)
This invention relates to a microphone having
a pressure compensation chamber which elimi
nates the changes in tension caused in the in
terior of the case by the in?uence of the ambient
temperature. To this end, the operating dia
phragm and the carbon chamber of such micro
phones are arranged in a closed chamber of the
case, the chamber being de?ned by a sealing dia
phragm from the operating side and by a ?exi
wall of the chamber I9 as well as to the inner
wall of the edge I5 of the case 4, bent at right
angles in order to attain a completely air-tight
seal of this portion of the case chamber. Since
the protective wall ‘I with its portion II extends
at the rear side of the case 4 up to the opening
for the contact nipple I3’, the hollow space I6 be
hind the ?xed electrode 2 is also protected against
moisture by the intermediate wall II. The cup
shaped member II of the ?xed electrode 2 is not
in direct engagement with the latter, but only
with the felt ring I4 so that a path of communi
cation I8 from the space I6 behind the electrode
2 to the pressure compensation chamber I9 prop

It has been found that this chamber must be
tested for air-tightness, which entails connect
ing a testing device to the chamber. This is ac
complished according to the invention by pro
viding the chamber of the case enclosed by the
sealing diaphragm and the water-tight protec
er is thereby provided, which path enables
through the openings 20 arranged in the electrode
cup-shaped member II a free access of air from
the one space to the other. The hollow space I 5
is closed in the central portion of the rear wall
of the chamber for the air-tightness, said open
ing being accessible from outside and capable of 20 of the case by the contact nipple l3. This con
tact member is provided with a bore 2I which is
