Two application areas of microphones are discussed, those for precision measurement and those for hearing instruments. Silicon microphones are under investigation for both areas, and Danish industry plays a key role in both. The opportunities of silicon, as well as the challenges and expectations, are discussed. For precision measurement the challenge for silicon is large, while for hearing instruments silicon seems to be very promising.
