When Greek linguists came up with the word “kardia” to represent “heart,” we’re pretty sure they didn’t foresee the impact of the cardioid microphone on the recording world. Yet, all these years later, the heart-shaped polar pattern remains dominant. It’s an incredibly important factor in how engineers capture sound in studios, live venues and beyond.
So we thought, since it’s Valentine’s Day, there’s no better time to celebrate our favorite polar pattern than the present. And we’ve come up with something special to show your love for both cardioid condenser microphones and Soyuz year-round. Meet our limited edition cardioid heart pin!
Extremely limited to an edition of 300, the cardioid heart enamel pin measures 1.5″ in width and 1.23″ in height, features a single rubber clutch and comes on a full color backing card. Created by Detroit-based artist Megan Dekok, this design takes the cardioid polar pattern’s namesake and amplifies it to a whole new level with big red heart vibes. And with our classic Soyuz diamond logo at the center, you’ll let everyone who you love.
