The article offers information on the troubleshooting a microphone. It states that to assure that a good circuit design is not compromised, manufacturers use connectors making an automatic pin-1 to chassis connection. This is done by using the shortest and lowest impedance connection possible that should be mechanically authentic to ensure long-term performance.
