Sensor for what? The microphone is all the 'sensor' you need.

An inexpensive electret capsule will do very well. You need to
understand how to power it and extract the signal. You will also need a
simple op-amp amplifier and a simple diode rectifier to feed the LM3916.
Actually, that is a pretty rare beast; the LM3915 is a bit easier to get
and will do just as well. The National Semiconductor data sheets and
application notes are excellent for these devices.
