    Hi wayneh, I know what dB is, but I don't understand Sensitivity (dB) in this content. I can understand dB is a reference unit, but in this content, what is it reference to? I know dBm is reference to 1mW for example.

    And I am still not sure what Sensitivity means in this content, Does that mean the minimum signal it can pick up is -50dB? These are the stuff that I want to know.

    You should try Googling "microphone sensitivity", you'd find the answer pretty quick. The reference is 1 Pa, which is 94dB SPL.
