The most common polar pattern for dynamic microphones is cardioid. A cardioid polar pattern primarily captures sound from the front of the microphone, and rejects sound from the rear and side of the capsule. This makes a dynamic microphone ideal for a live vocal microphone, or on any source you want to have the highest possible isolation. Dynamic Microphones are also commonly available in hyper cardioid and super cardioid polar patterns such as the Gefell MD 110 or the Sennheiser E609. Both hyper and super cardioid microphones are extremely directional at the front of the mic, but pick up small amounts of signal from the rear of the microphone. This could be used in a recording studio to capture the direct signal in front of the microphone, but also capture a little bit of the room behind the capsule. Although uncommon, some dynamic microphones are available in omnidirectional and figure-8 polar patterns.
