The Go Mic provides excellent audio quality for capturing voices and instruments, the ease of plug-and-play USB connectivity, an ultra-compact form factor that's ready to travel, and the ability to mount to a laptop or stand upright on a tabletop.
The Go Mic is a detailed sounding condenser microphone with two pick-up patterns. In "cardioid" mode the Go Mic will primarily capture sounds in front of it, and reject sounds to the sides and behind the mic.

This is useful when you want to capture multiple people or musicians around the microphone.
