Default Measurement Mic question

I'm looking into getting a cheap measurement mic to setup a flat response for my car stereo.

I was looking into the dayton IMM-6 one that plugs into the phone, but saw the EMM-6 isn't much more. I figure this may be a better mic setup and will be easier to use with a stand.

I did see it has an XLR connection though. Can someone please educate me on how people plug these in to test? Can you plug them into your laptop using an adapter? or am i better off just getting the IMM-6? is there much difference in the mic itself?

Thanks in advance

There is no cheap measurement mic.

There is an amount of qualifying mic with a price tag of several hundred dollars, and specialized software which is sold for several hundred dollars too.

The miniDSP PMIK-1 could be what you are looking for Comes with individual calibration.

I am using the UMIK-1 and did some comparisons with professional B&K Measurement Mics and its really good for the price.

kind regards, Daniel

You will get wildly different response if you move a few centimeters apart in a car.
