Austrian Audio has announced two microphones that promise to bring the company’s studio-quality microphone expertise and technology to new handheld vocal mics for live performance.

The new microphones use Austrian Audio’s Open Acoustics Technology, which allows sound to enter the capsule almost entirely unimpeded from all sides. Contact points between the mounted capsule and the enclosure are reduced to a minimum, allowing for an open and natural sound without any coloration. The reduction of sound-reflecting surfaces in the vicinity of the capsule ensures that the signal source is reproduced as resonance-free as possible while advanced materials and sophisticated mechanics reduce unwanted vibrations even further. Supercardiod, respectively cardioid, polar patterns with excellent off-axis rejection along with breakthrough design ensure maximum suppression of feedback.

Austrian Audio OC707The OC707 is a rugged vocal microphone with a die-cast body and true condenser technology. Developed and built in Vienna, the OC707 contains a small-diaphragm condenser capsule with a frequency response optimised for the human voice. Its combination of low self-noise (19dB SPL) and high sound pressure level (150dB) 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, achieving nearly the same sensitivity as a condenser mic due to its dual-capsule design where the bottom capsule is phase-inverted and passively switched. Combined with a switchable second-order high-pass filter and Open-Acoustics Technology, noise from handling, bumps, and stage rumble are effectively eliminated.

‘We are proud to say that the OD505 and OC707 are Made in Austria, guaranteeing world-class quality and sustainability,’ says CEO, Martin Seidl. ‘Only the highest quality materials and techniques are used in design and manufacturing and our testing is performed in our own anechoic chamber in our Vienna facility.’
