Shotgun microphones

Have you heard about shotgun mic? Sounds interesting right?! I haven’t seen one so I searched the internet to check what shotgun mic looks like and what’s its use. Based on my research, these type of microphones are the most highly directional of microphones. They have small lobes of sensitivity to the left, right, and rear but it focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds. It produces clear sound perfect for reporting, interviews, dubbing, live sound reinforcement, and recording applications.

Here’s a sample of shotgun microphones.
