Our PRO head with supercardioid recording pattern is designed for recordings in noisy environments. As its directivity is even higher than the cardioid’s, it optimally rejects side-generated sound and filters even extremely loud ambient noise. Thus, it ensures crystal clear recordings through excellent and natural frequency response. The supercardioid pickup pattern suits best for interviews in loud surroundings like major events, e.g. sporting events, motor sport races or concerts. A windscreen is recommended when used outdoors and it should be noted that recording quality will be heavily impacted by the adjustment of the microphone towards the sound source. Using our supercardiod microphone head, there is no common proximity effect of directed microphones due to the high-pass-filter that is found inside the iXm recorder’s LEA Engine. LEA achieves a perfect balance of frequency ranges.
As a dynamic microphone capsule, the head is characterized by its sound converter components’ ruggedness, especially at high sound pressure levels. Thus, its recording pattern is less sensitive in higher frequency ranges compared to an electret microphone head. In comparison the dynamic head’s sluggish membrane leads to different sounding recording results.
