Handmade in Vienna and subject to the strictest quality assurance processes, the OC7 and OD5 instrument microphones come with some special features in typical Austrian Audio fashion.  

To simplify the positioning of the instrument microphone, Austrian Audio's engineers have developed a suspension system for the microphone basket that allows a 220° rotation of the field. This allows the microphone to be precisely aligned to the sound source or according to personal sound preferences without having to awkwardly adjust or loosen the microphone stand.

Both the OC7 and OD5 also utilise Austrian Audio's Open Acoustics technology.  Following the principle of free-field optimisation, both the microphone basket and the suspension of the capsule are designed to avoid acoustic interference. The Open Acoustics approach also allows rear sound to pass through to the capsule, resulting in an extremely precise cardioid characteristic. Called "linear cardioid" by Austrian Audio, this directional pattern ensures that sound coming in not only from the front, but also from the rear or side, sounds good and undistorted. This ensures that even the sometimes unavoidable crosstalk from other instruments sounds good.

A very versatile instrument microphone, the OC7 and OD5 will find many uses. Perfectly suited for use on drums; with the DPH12 Drum Holder; it’s also superb on guitar amplifiers, as well as in front of wind instruments.
