Austrian Audio OC707 cardioid condenser stage vocal microphone includes a switchable low-cut filter, clear sound, and is ready for challenging stages.
With each capsule hand-built in Vienna and measured and tuned in the in-house anechoic chamber, OC707 is a vocal handheld microphone that has all the important characteristics of a studio microphone – yet can withstand the rigours of everyday stage use.
Austrian Audio’s proprietary Open Acoustics Technology 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. Furthermore, the reduction of sound-reflecting surfaces in proximity to the capsule ensures that the signal source is reproduced as resonance-free as possible; advanced materials technology and sophisticated mechanics reduce unwanted vibrations.
More on the capsule:
The OCC7 condenser capsule was developed in Vienna and is the heart of Austrian Audio’s small diaphragm microphone series. Inspired by the legendary CK1, the newly developed capsule takes on the heritage with the benefits of the classic and the demands of today. Shaped by the past, built for the future. The capsule’s three micron thick gold-coated polyethylene naphthalate (pen) diaphragm is much more robust than conventional Mylar alternatives.
OCC7 capsule has an impressive linear frequency response. It sounds natural and open, and even at extreme volumes it is neither harsh nor sharp. The mids and highs are always smooth and are not overemphasised.
