Austrian Audio OC707 & OD505 Stage Microphones Austrian Audio has introduced two microphones – the OC707 and OD505 – that bring its studio-quality microphone technology to new handheld vocal mics designed for live performance .
The OC707 is a rugged vocal microphone with a die-cast body and true condenser technology . It contains a small-diaphragm condenser capsule , handmade in Vienna , with a frequency response optimized for the human voice . Its combination of low self-noise ( 19 dB SPL ) and high sound pressure level ( 150 dB SPL ) results in a larger dynamic range , creating a vocal microphone that has the important characteristics of a studio mic but can withstand the rigors of stage use , according to the company .
The OD505 is an active dynamic microphone that combines the advantages of a dynamic stage mic with the sonic refinements of a condenser microphone . It achieves nearly the same sensitivity as a condenser mic due to its dual-capsule design where the bottom capsule is phase-inverted and passively switched . Combined with a switchable second-order high-pass filter and the open-acoustics technology , noise from handling , bumps , and stage rumble are effectively eliminated , the company says .
