"In the OC18 and OC818, Austrian Audio have combined old-school expertise with clever innovation to deliver really special large-diaphragm studio microphones at a compelling price."

The Austrian Audio OC18 is an essential precision microphone featuring a classic cardioid pick-up pattern, whilst the Austrian Audio OC818 features multiple patterns, dual outputs for recording its forward-facing and rear-facing capsules independently, and optional Bluetooth wireless control. Both feature a beautiful new handmade ceramic CKR12 capsule and are reviewed in the latest issue of Sound On Sound magazine.

"What really matters is the core sound of the mic, and Austrian Audio have used their traditional electro-acoustic expertise to create something a bit special here."

"Their achievement is even more impressive considering the price at which they’ve brought these wholly European-made mics to market, with no hint of compromise in the design, the build quality or the sound."

"The OC18 and OC818 aren’t just great microphones for the price: they’re great microphones, full stop."
