How long do Microphone last?

The electret element used in a microphone loses “sensitivity” and will age with time. It greatly determines the lifespan of a microphone.

A 10-year-old microphone would have lost less than 1dB of sensitivity. Thus, a life span of roughly 30-40 years can be expected from a microphone given you maintain it well.
