From ModMic's webpage:

"Omni-directional microphones have no ports in the back of the capsule and will pick up more sound from the room when compared to uni-directional capsules. "Why would I want this?" you say. Omni-directional mics generally have a flatter response curve and better represent the true sound of what's being recorded. They are less likely to 'pop' with plosive sounds and do not exhibit the proximity effect (bass gets much louder as the capsule gets closer to the source) like the uni-directional capsules do. "
