Application

Live Vocals

Video / Broadcast / ENG

Microphone Type

Condenser:

Lightweight, sensitive diaphragm. Precisely and smoothly captures sound nuances. Powered by battery or phantom power supply.

Polar Pattern

Cardioid:

Picks up the most sound in front of the microphone and some from the sides. Less susceptible to feedback in high volume environments.

OmniDirectional:

Equally sensitive to sound from all directions, but cannot be "aimed" to isolate one area.

SuperCardioid:

Screens unwanted sound sources. Ideal for individual instruments in a multi-microphone setting, or single sources in noisy environments.

Frequency Response

Tailored:

Smooth, extended response. Tuned to accentuate specific types of instruments or voices.
