The cardioid (unidirectional) microphone is so named because of its pattern of sensitivity, which is roughly shaped like a heart when drawn out on an axis. This means most of the sound a cardioidmicrophone picks up comes from the front of the mic, while minimal noise is picked up from the rear and only marginal noise is picked up from the sides. This type of sensitivity pattern makes the cardioidmicrophone useful in myriad situations, including but not limited to situations in which several mics are being used at one time, live performances, and certain recording purposes. Thecardioidmicrophone is designed to pick up one sound well, with other ambient noises fading into the background. A cardioidmicrophone is particularly useful for live sound, such as concerts. It can also be used as a vocal mic for presentations, public address, and other situations that require a vocal mic. The cardioidmicrophone is also a good choice for recording concentrated sounds such as vocals and instruments. Other situations in which acardioidmicrophone may be used include household applications, such as online chat (skype, msn etc). The microphone picks up primarily the speaker's voice while eliminating other ambient noise, such as background conversation & television.
