They can be used to suppress and control acoustic reflections, ambiance, noise, and leakage during vocal and instrument recording.

The mic features a 1.1" dual-diaphragm external-bias condenser capsule with figure-8 and omnidirectional polar patterns. It can be used for capturing audio in a wide range of applications such as recording studio vocals, voice-overs, choirs, orchestras, guitars, and more.
