Proximity Effect in a Cardioid Microphone as a Function of Azimuth Angle

  • John M. Eargle


Because the cardioid pattern consists of both omnidirectional and dipole components, it will exhibit varying amounts of proximity effect depending on its angular orientation with respect to the sound source. For example, at 90° off-axis, the dipole component is 0 (see section 79) and there will be no proximity effect.
