Hyper-cardioid defined.


Hyper-cardioid (or super-cardioid) is a microphone that picks up sound from the front, none from the side and a little from the rear. Hyper-cardioid mics are good for isolating musicians on a stage - for example if you have two beatboxers next to each other and you don't want the microphones to pick up sounds from the other beatboxer. e.g. Shure Beta58.
