 As stated above, the first problem is **powering the microphone** itself, because generally we will use an **electret** one. It is a **common practice** to provide the power on the same line of the microphone signal, so **requiring just two wires** for both power (from the device to the mic) and for signal (from the mic to the device). The power, also called //bias current//, is generally in the range of **2.5** to **5.0 volt**. As stated above, the first problem is **powering the microphone** itself, because generally we will use an **electret** one.

-FIXME: How much current ​is provided in our test? Is the current always present or switched-on only at jack insertion?+On a Xiaomi Mi A1 smartphone, which has a **TRRS 3.5 mm jack, CTIA standard**, we measured a bias current ​of **2.19 volt** between ​the microphone (sleeve) and the ground (ring).
