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. In "omni-directional" mode, the Go Mic will capture sound evenly in a 360 degree sphere around the microphone. This is useful when you want to capture multiple people or musicians around the microphone.
There are many applications that greatly benefit from having recording studio quality audio. It's an excellent choice for podcasters that want to record their voices with broadcast clarity. Video production people can easily achieve excellent results creating voice overs with the Go Mic. Musicians will be able to capture studio quality audio when inspiration strikes, and anyone utilizing Skype, iChat, or voice recognition software for recreation or business purposes can be confident that the other party will hear their message as clearly as possible.
