The bass response of all directional microphones is increased as the signal source - your voice - comes closer to the mic capsule. This is called Proximity Effect and it becomes apparent at a range of one foot and increases as the distance of mouth to mic decreases.

For speakers or singers with high or thin voices, proximity effect can boost the bass, filling out the sound. - source Shure Notes
