I am not sure that these have four mics, all I have ever seen is with two mics, but nevertheless, - Yeah, the sound is a bit funny, but you can get used to it. I wouldn't say they are omnidirectional, but rather somewhat directional, as the mics are forward facing. I have used them for sports but never for hunting, but I would still say if you learn how to "work'em" it should be possible. Now, I got to be honest and say that I have never done any hunting in my life, but applying my skills as an engineer I would say that it should be possible to use them for hunting.
