The New OD505 Active Dynamic and OC707 Handheld Condenser Microphones Bring Studio Performance to the Stage
Vienna, Austria – Austrian Audio announces two new microphones that bring their acclaimed studio-quality microphone experience and technology to new handheld vocal mics that are designed for live performance.
The OC707 is a rugged vocal microphone with a die-cast body and true condenser technology for superior sound on stage. Developed and built in Vienna, the OC707 contains a small-diaphragm condenser capsule with a frequency response optimized for the human voice. The capsule is handmade in Austrian Audio’s facilities in Vienna. Its combination of low self-noise (19 dB SPL) and high sound pressure level (150 dB SPL) results in an impressive dynamic range, creating a vocal microphone that has all the important characteristics of a studio mic but can withstand the rigors of everyday stage use.
The OD505 is an Active Dynamic microphone that combines the advantages of a dynamic stage mic with the sonic refinements of a condenser microphone. This outstanding vocal microphone achieves nearly the same sensitivity as a condenser mic due to its state-of-the-art dual capsule design where the bottom capsule is phase-inverted and passively switched. Combined with a switchable 2nd order high-pass filter and the Open-Acoustics-technology, noise from handling, bumps, and stage rumble are effectively eliminated.
