The polar pattern of a microphone is a way to describe the direction it "hears" - although some microphones pick up sound from every direction, most have a design that aims at a specific area. This way, background noise isn't picked up as much, and the resulting sound is clearer and more focused on the intended source. Of all the possible patterns, there's no doubt that cardioid is the most popular: this pattern listens to an apple-shaped space directly in front of the microphone, which makes it a fantastic choice for vocals, instrument miking... and, of course, the recording cardioid condenser microphones found here in this section.

Even in the recording booth, some stubborn background noises may stick around, and a cardioid mic helps eliminate those. Plus, this polar pattern really shines in live recording settings, where its rejection of sounds from behind gives it the ability to cancel out the audience so only the performer is heard. Most microphones in this category have a cylindrical shape like the MXL 990 Condenser Microphone with Shockmount or the Neumann TLM 102 Condenser Microphone, but you'll find specialized exceptions such as the Audio-Technica PRO 45 Cardioid Condenser Hanging Mic, which is designed to be suspended from above for ensemble recording. Other specialties include tube mics like the MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone, and models designed especially for instrument recording, such as the Shure Beta 181/C Instrument Mic.

With so many styles and variations to choose from, one thing is for sure: getting the best results means finding the right mic to deliver them. So when you start browsing the selection of recording cardioid condenser microphones, it's definitely worth your while to think about where, what and how you'll be recording - those factors will make all the difference in determining which mics to consider. And once you have a good idea of what you need, narrowing down your options with the sidebar will help you pick out your ideal microphone in no time.
