It makes little sense to use any air microphone under water. There are
special underwatermikes on the (lab)market, but you can make your uwn using
piezodisks (sort of a contact mike) sealed with epoxy rosin.
Sonar type underwater mikes is what I have used a lot. They work excellent
but require special demodulation circuitry!
