Which type of microphone is best equipped to capture eating sounds?


I am wondering which type of microphone this girl used to make her videos.

I tried condensor hypercardioid but it still doesn't sound as clear and loud.

2cardioid condensor fine for fish or poultry, M-S with a condensor and ribbon combo is best for red meat and roast veggies, (depending on season) country breakfast, etc. desserts can be tricky, i usually use a pair of 421s in X-Y configuration with a high gain preamp and hope for the best. – Tyler Stone – 2019-02-14T05:53:43.917

Cardioid condensor which is most likely positioned just out of frame.

Usually the best mics to capture very localized sounds are the so-called "shotgun mics", condenser microphones with a Super-Cardioid polar pattern, like the Rode NTG-2.
