Austrian Audio OD5 / OC7

OD7 OC7

OD5

With the OD5, Austrian Audio introduces an active-dynamic microphone optimised for use on instruments.  
Handmade in Vienna and subject to the strictest quality assurance processes, the OD5 instrument microphone once again comes with some special features in the usual Austrian Audio manner. 
Most noticeable is the «Swivel Joint» mechanism. Technicians are familiar with the problem of microphone stands that are screwed on too tightly and can hardly be reached in the forest of stands. Once you finally get them loose, they lose their position completely – and that’s just because you wanted to change the microphone angle by a few degrees.  
To simplify the positioning of the instrument microphone, Austrian Audio’s engineers have developed a suspension system for the microphone basket that allows a 220° rotation of the field. This allows the microphone to be precisely aligned to the sound source or according to personal sound preferences without having to awkwardly adjust or loosen the microphone stand. Various annoyances such as microphones falling over or fingers pinched on the microphone stand are now a thing of the past.  

OD7
With the OC7, Austrian Audio releases a true condenser microphone with the
popular OC sound, which is specially optimised for use on instruments. 
Handmade in Vienna, Austria, each OC7 undergoes rogorous quality control before it is shipped. The heart of the new microphone is the OCC7 small diaphragm capsule, also handmade in Vienna. In-house development and manufacturing results in perfect tuning for the respective recording application. 
Characteristic of Austrian Audio, the OC7 is not just another instrument microphone, but comes with some special features. 
The most striking feature is the «Swivel Joint» mechanism. Technicians are certainly familiar with the problem of microphone stands that are screwed on too tightly and can hardly be reached in the forest of stands. Once you finally get them loose, they lose their position completely – and that’s just because you wanted to change the microphone angle by a few degrees. 
To simplify the positioning of the instrument microphone, Austrian Audio’s engineers have developed a suspension of the microphone basket that allows a 220° rotation in the field. This allows the microphone to be precisely aligned to the sound source or according to personal sound preferences without having to awkwardly adjust or loosen the microphone stand; frustrations such as microphones falling off or fingers pinched on the microphone stand are now a thing of the past. 
Precise directionality is a prerequisite for the targeted alignment of a microphone. The OC7 uses Austrian Audio’s well-known Open Acoustics technology.
