The OD505 Dynamic and OC707 Condenser both feature Austrian Audio’s Open Acoustic Technology, a proprietary design that ensures the capsules are as free-standing as possible (and highlighted by the recognisable ‘gap’ below the capsule in the industrial design!)
The benefit? By reducing the contact points of the capsule and the mounting, as well as eliminating unwanted reflections that can be caused by the housing, the Open Acoustics design results in a pristine, natural and resonance-free sound without any colouring.
The new OD505WL1 has recently been used by Matt Bellamy of Muse on their ‘Will Of The People’ stadium tour. Monitor engineer Matt Napier, part of Carolan’s team confirmed this in a recent interview with FOH Magazine “When Matt performs in front of the P.A., he switches to an Austrian Audio OD505, which has great rejection and keeps the vocal sound as clean as possible.”
The OC707 is another incredible vocal microphone for live or studio use. This time, it is a Cardioid condenser microphone offering an alternative ‘flavour’ to the OD505, where the delicate sound of a more sensitive capsule is required. Despite housing a condenser diaphragm, the OC707 is a rugged handheld Microphone with minimal handling noise, due to the many design features Austrian Audio have incorporated. Now, this too has a wireless option thanks to the release of the new OC707WL1, providing artists with studio quality sound in a live performance together with freedom of movement around the stage.
