Austrian Audio SKU: SP-NAUS015
The handheld OC707 True Condenser Vocal Microphone brings professional sound quality to both studio and stage. Capturing every nuance of your performance through the world-renowned Austrian Audio craftsmanship, your voice will delight your audience.
Designed to capture the dynamics and subtleties of the human voice, the OC707 blocks out unwanted noise from the outset, while giving your voice a great depth of volume. The OC707 lets the vocal cut through the mix, clear, detailed and natural. The well balanced sound also offers an excellent, reduced proximity effect which is advantageous to every performance. The unique tonal characteristics of your voice are preserved throughout.
Austrian Audio has succeeded in creating a vocal handheld microphone that has all the important characteristics of a studio microphone yet can withstand the rigours of everyday stage use. The combination of low self-noise (19 dB SPL) and high sound pressure level (151 dB SPL) results in an impressive dynamic range.
The OCC7 small-diaphragm capsule with true condenser technology, developed and built in Vienna, is the heart of the microphone. The capsule's three micron thick gold-coated polyethylene naphthalate (pen) diaphragm is much more robust than conventional Mylar alternatives.
Austrian Audio's proprietary Open Acoustics Technology allows sound to enter the capsule almost entirely unimpeded from all sides. Contact points between the mounted capsule and the enclosure are reduced to a minimum. Furthermore, the reduction of sound-reflecting surfaces in proximity to the capsule ensures that the signal source is reproduced as resonance-free as possible; advanced materials technology and sophisticated mechanics reduce unwanted vibrations. Care was also taken to achieve maximum suppression of feedback.
This intelligent design also reduces the microphone's sensitivity to physically-induced sound, such as handling noise and shocks. The switchable 2nd order high-pass filter further enhances these features and can be used for sound-shaping, an effective tool against excessive proximity effects.
We are proud to say that the OC707 is "Made in Austria; this is your guarantee of world-class quality and sustainability. Only the highest quality materials and techniques are used in the design and manufacture of the OC707, and all our testing is also performed in our Vienna facility where 'only the best will do'.
