Cardioids

Colette
The cardioid is the most popular type of directional microphone. It combines the highest level of audio quality with optimal suppression of rear-incident sound. SCHOEPS cardioids have a directional pattern that remains the same at all frequencies.
The range of applications for cardioids is unlimited. They are used for speaking voices as well as for instruments and vocal soloists.
