The e1002 has a single capsule for the single supercardioid polar pattern, and the e2002 employs twin capsules for producing three patterns, including supercardioid, omnidirectional and figure-8.
The e3002 features a large 1.1-inch diameter externally biased, dual-diaphragm capsule for producing three polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional and figure-8.
