I was comparing two AKG broadcasting/recording headsets, one with a condenser microphone (AKG HSC 271) and the other with a dynamic microphone (AKG HSD 271) but otherwise identical and approximately equally priced. Both headsets have removable cables. The cable is typically a 6-Pin mini XLR plug to 6.3 mm stereo jack and 3-pin XLR connector, but the condenser version is also available with a 6-Pin mini XLR plug to 2x mini jack (TRS), the so-called "PC Set", available for the purpose of directly plugging the headset in a PC (onboard sound-card), circumventing the need of a proper audio interface ( at the obvious cost of reduced audio quality ).
This surprised me, as condenser microphones typically require "better care", including phantom power, whereas dynamic microphones do not. Now, I understand that it is not advisable to connect any type of high-quality microphone directly to a PC, neither a condenser nor a dynamic one. However, if they'd offer the option to do it for one, I would have guessed it to be the dynamic rather than condenser microphone. As such, this makes me think I'm missing some understanding about the operation principles of either type of microphone.
Why would a condenser microphone be more suited than a dynamic microphone for connecting directly to a PC's built-in sound-card ?
