What is the most cost efficient working class pressure microphone for low amplitudes for sounds up to 10 kHz?

All of PCB’s 1/2'' and 1/4'' microphones have a flat frequency response from 4 Hz to 10 kHz.  Model 377B11 is a 1/2" pressure microphone.  This is the most cost effective option in the pressure response category for test and measurement quality microphones.
