After struggling with a particular artist to find the right microphone to really capture the nuance of the voice, a friend had pointed me towards Austrian Audios live vocal mics, the OD505 and the OC707. As soon as I tried these capsules in a shoot out against many other professional manufacturers, it became clear that the OD505 was everything I was after. It had detail while being incredibly functional in reducing stage bleed. Now the OD505 and OC707 live as go to's for vocalists in a live environment. Austrian Audio are a brilliant company with high quality products as well as customer service that stands out in the current market.
