The Rycote HC-15 is a hypercardioid short shotgun microphone designed for a wide range of applications in cinema, TV, ENG, live broadcast, sound design, studio and field recording.

The HC-15 combines a moderately directional polar pattern with extremely low self-noise. This provides some level of off-axis rejection and isolation with a precise sound quality to match, making the HC-15 a great all around mic for many recording environments.
