In microphones, a term used to describe the sensitivity and directionality of a microphone. A more sensitive microphone will have a very narrow pick-up pattern and is said to have a high reach, meaning it's able to pick up sounds from a greater distance because of it's more narrow pickup pattern (compared to using other microphones with different pick-up patterns (polar patterns) at the same level.)
