The Dixon high-end microphone is ideal for gaming, streaming, podcasts, voice-overs and vocal recordings. It offers 4 polar patters, which include Cardioid, Stereo, Bidirectional & Omnidirectional.

BIDIRECTIONAL records from both the front & the rear of the microphone, ideal for recording a duet or a two-person interview. OMNIDIRECTIONAL picks up sound equally from all sides of the microphone. It is best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of a room. This compact microphone delivers high-resolution audio quality and reduces any unwanted background. The USB plug & play design means that there is zero hassle with driver software. All you need to do is plug in the microphone and get ready to record.
