    is it the higher the impedence the better the mic?

    not necessarily.
    the higher the impedance, the shorter the cable you'll need to get an accurate signal through...
    a lot of mics have similar versions in high and low imp. for the same cost...or a switch
    you can also get an external converter roughly 15 USD...but not sure i'd trust them.

    peace,
