Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones used in recordings. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all of the audio of an instrument or voice. Using power directly from your phone, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.
What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has a cardioid polar pattern which means it is more sensitive to sounds at the front of the microphone and less sensitive at the back. The pickup is based in one direction which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound as well as having a high resistance to feedback.
What would I use this microphone with?
You can connect this microphone directly to any Apple product with a lightning connector. The mic uses a cardioid pattern to pick up audio from whichever direction the microphone is directed in, isolating background noises from the recording. This feature makes the microphone suitable for field work such as conducting interviews in public. It also has a 6.35mm input, allowing you to record an electronic instrument such as a guitar as well as vocals. This means you can record your performances for posterity, for publishing online or for an audition.
