True Condenser Vocal Microphone
Now we turn our attention to the OC707. Whilst it may look like the OD505 on the outside, the same can’t be said for what’s inside. The OC707 is a true condenser microphone, and at its heart is the Austrian Audio OCC7 condenser capsule. The OCC7 takes its heritage from the legendary CK1 capsule, but with a modern twist. This brand new purpose built capsule has been designed to meet the demands of today’s musicians and engineers. Its gold coated polyethylene naphthalate diaphragm (just 3 microns thick) is far more robust than conventional mylar alternatives and provides an impressively linear response over a large dynamic range.
This specialised capsule gives allows every nuance of the vocals to cut through a mix with ease. What's more, the sensitivity of the capsule doesn't come with increased handling noise, thanks to a number of design choices to keep unwanted rumbles and knocks at bay. Contact points between the enclosure and the mounted capsule are kept to an absolute minimum. You’ll also find the same 2nd order low cut filter to remove unwanted low frequencies. It can also help to reduce the ‘proximity effect’ (low end boost) that can occur when the sound source and mic diaphragm are close to each other.
The number of reflective surfaces and materials in proximity to the capsule have been kept to an absolute minimum to eliminate resonances within the OC707. This also ensures that sound entering the capsule isn't impeded or deflected All these features allow the clearest possible path from sound source to capsule, and reduce unwanted noise from the signal to give the best possible sound.
The OC707 is a truly magnificent handheld condenser, allowing the performer or the engineer to get studio quality sound on stage (or indeed in the studio if you prefer!) It’s also a microphone to look at if you work with voice over, podcasting or radio broadcast for exceptional voice capture. Just like the OD505, the OC707 also comes with the OCH1 Mic Clip and MSC1 Microphone Case.
