    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. They are completely different microphones, although the ATM250 is the replacement for the ATM25. The ATM250 is also larger that the ATM25.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Dynamic Microphones, such as the ATM250, do NOT have a Max SPL specification. This is because dynamic microphones (a.k.a Moving-Magnet or Moving-Coil Microphones) can handle as much Sound Pressure Level (SPL) as one will throw at it. Again, Dynamic Microphones, not limited to A-T product, do not have a Max SPL specification, because they can handle all the SPL you will give it.

    Thanks!
