The sensing element is usually a piezoelectric ceramic material such as barium titanate, lead zirconate, or lead metaniobate. Piezoelectric hydrophones are high-impedance devices and signals may be passed through preamplifiers or impedance-matching transformers before transmission through the streamer to the recording instruments. Compare geophone.
