How to get a Bose-Einstein condenser microphone

When I asked the folks at Bose to tell me how to get an acoustic condenser mic, they told me to use the Bose Micro condenser meter. 

The Mic is a compact condenser, with a weight of only 0.3 lbs.

and an efficiency of just .08%. 

This is a fairly small difference, but it’s worth noting. 

If you want to use a different type of condenser (for example, a microphone with an additional transformer), you’ll need to use an adapter to connect the mic to the adapter. 

As for how to measure your microphone, Bose tells me that you’ll be able to use any measurement device. 

I can’t say with certainty that this is true, but I have heard from some people that they can’t measure their microphones with their smartphones, so this is something to keep in mind. 

Once you’ve decided to go with the Boke meter, you’ll have to plug the mic in and connect the adapter to the computer. 

You’ll be prompted for your microphone type. 

My recommendation would be the BOSE Micro. 

In order to get the mic that is supposed to work with the converter, you have to install the converter first. 

That means you’ll want to buy the converter from a Boke dealer. 

Bose has been known to have some good deals on the converter and adapter, so you may find a deal that fits your budget. 

With the converter in place, you can now start measuring. 

To measure, you need to connect your microphone to the mic and set the measurement mode to “condenser.” 

To do this, you should look at the BOS meter.

In the BOSS meter, click on the “Meter” button. 

At the bottom of the meter, there is a section labeled “Converter” and it has two tabs. 

These tabs are labeled “Bose Condenser” and “Boke Condenser.”

The first tab is labeled “AC” and you need that number to convert your microphone into an AC condenser. 

Then, you want the second tab labeled “DC.” 

You want this number to be the same for all your microphones. 

Now, you’re ready to convert the microphone into a DC condenser by using the BODE button.

The BODE function is a little tricky. 

On the Bode page, click the “Bode” button and then click on “BODE” again. 

It will take you to the Base converter. 

When you see the Bodes page, scroll down to the section labeled “(AC/DC) Bode” and then hit “OK.” 

The Bode function is located at the bottom-right of the Bos meter.

Now, to convert a BOSE condenser into a BODE, you must first convert the AC/DC Bode to DC. 

Again, you will be able access this section by clicking on the BODEL button.

The Bode converter will now be displayed. 

This will take a few moments to complete. 

From there, you may need to look at a BOS gauge. 

After you’ve found the Bodel meter, hit the “Measure” button on the bottom right of the screen. 

A Bose meter meter will display. 

Press the “OK” button to complete the conversion. 


You now have an excellent condenser sound in your studio. 

Hopefully you have found this helpful, but if you have any questions, let me know.
