Oh yes, so not discontinued after all! Does 'pre-polarised condenser microphone' mean it's not a true omni i.e. it won't reach properly low frequencies?
"pre-polarised" is another way of saying "electret" - it has nothing to do with the polar-pattern.
The ME 62 is a true omni and the directionality at high frequencies is normal and is only due to the blocking effect of the body.
For the money, it's a nice mic.
