    I guess the question ought to be refered to someone at akg for example . Maybe they'd have to admit they had no idea really they just figured it looked cool at the time

    Second guessing the mic engineers at AKG.

    I think we could segue right into an extraterrestrial conspiracy theory from here...and never miss a beat.

    Now that would be a bit of a stretch, Miro.
    However, I did earlier come to the conclusion that 'capsule strangulation' was the cause of my lousy recordings.

    That's as conspiratorial as I'll get.

    It's both, everything matters in acoustics. The Oktava 219 is known to have a bad basket/weird resonances. The Apex 460, I think I read, has terrible comb filtering from the head basket. One of the Gefell head-on-a-stick mics is basically the same a u87, save for the shape of the housing, which reflects differently than a u87 body.

    Dynamics too, Shure and Beyerdynamic and EV all offer the same capsules in different housings and windscreens. It changes the frequency response.

    The only logical shape for most mics, is the LDC pencil. Baskets all add some form of weirdness.

    Not for figure of eight, of course.
    MB Pro, FF400, MKH816, AKG C451-C1/CK8, NT1, B5, MD21, Korg RC168, DEQ830, ADA8000...

    I know that movie ref.....

    The answer to your question lies in the engineering graphs of the polar responses of a particular mic (any one that is provided with this)

    Learning to read these graphs can give you an insight as to how a mic can perform although most graphs are taken off of responses in anechoic chambers. Which no one records in.

    But really...learning what your mics can or cannot do is a basic in engineering.
    Chord with this, Teddy......
