This article describes an ECM microphone preamplifier circuit. Schematics can combine text look better grasp of this principle. Two transistors should be low noise types. In the original circuit, I used to be a BC650C ultra low noise devices. These transistors are now hard to find but  BC549C  or BC109C are a good alternative. This circuitry is a self-bias and to its quiescent operating point at about half the supply voltage at the emitter end of the transistor. The electret condenser microphone (ECM) contains a very sensitive microphone element and an internal FET preamplifier power supply in the range of 2 to 10 volts DC, is therefore necessary. The right of the ECM is also available from Maplin Electronics. 1 k resistor limits the current microphone. 2 k2 This resistor should be increased if the supply voltage exceeds 12 V DC is not used if the microphone into a dynamic. Output impedance is very low, suitable for driving cable distance of 50 meters. Therefore, the shielded cable is not necessary.

The noise response of the amplifier measured across the 10k load is shown below. Please note that this plot was made with the mic insert replaced by a signal generator.
