Microphone polar pattern diagrams

The microphone polar pattern diagram is used to show the sensitivity of a microphone to sound arriving at its capsule from different directions. They are primarily used by microphone manufacturers and displayed in a microphone's manual or technical specification.

They can help us decide whether or not to purchase a microphone, and also to determine the best microphone to use for a recording.
