Since the mic’s right in front of you, how it looks is important, too.
The OC818’s curves give off a soft and gentle vibe and they look really nice, too.
I remember trying out these mics for the first time at NAMM 2022 like it was yesterday, they naturally captured the low end in my vocals, which is something i am always looking for! As well as a mic that is sensitive enough for my Voice Acting jobs but can also handle my loud belting. I track vocals using my Hi-X60 Headphones, which provide the clarity I need and just enough isolation for the outside world.
We love the OD505, because it is very responsive and has lots of power. Our vocals sound enhanced and crisp, making it a great stage mic.
Austrian Audio are a really cool company—trying to push the limits of good audio with tried and true technology, but also taking a lead in developing new and exciting ways to process and create sound. Im excited to hear what they have to offer in the future.

The OD505 on singers are simply smoother and more voluminous than the competition. Austrian Audio mics always deliver that big studio sound, even on stage!

The Hi-X60 allows you to monitor space as you imagine it in an immersive mix. And the Hi-X65 accurately reproduces even range/phase shift/noise in stereo and mastering.
I tested lots of different microphones for my specific case until I found the OD505. I tried pretty much every quality live vocals mic including expensive headset mics, but none of them were as good as the OD505.
