Handheld Microphone

image
The quintessential handle with a sphere on the end is the handheld mic. Hold it in your hand, or set it in a microphone stand.

Uh oh: Here comes the variety and the eye glazing “But which one?” part. There are different sound pickup technologies: Dynamic and condenser.

They can be omnidirectional or directional (cardioid), and hypercardioid, picking up a narrower area in front of the microphone.

Use two of these set on stands to capture the speech of two people.

Advantages:

Different patterns for different situations

Disadvantages:

Can be somewhat obtrusive
