The sensitivity setting helps adjust for different noise environments and different camera sensitivity settings.For loud sound circumstances or if connecting to a camera with extremely high input sensitivity the sensitivity setting would need to be set to the normal sensitivity (ie: left position). For extremely quiet sound circumstances or if connecting to a camera with low input sensitivity the sensitivity switch would need to be set to the high sensitivity position (ie: right position).
