    The portion of a microphone that is mechanically moved by sound waves. The resulting interaction with a backplate or moving coil (depending on the microphone type) allows the conversion of sound energy to electrical energy. This energy eventually gets to a loudspeaker or headphone, where a roughly equivalent reverse process takes place as the cone moves in response to the electrical signal and produces sound energy.
