“I love Austrian Audio. The quality of their products makes me feel so confident whenever I’m in front of the mic. I can count on my sound being clear and clean. Even besides the products, the company is run by such great people. The OC18 has quickly become my favorite microphone that I have ever recorded with.”
In fast paced situations, especially where acoustics are far from ideal, its important to have tools that I can trust and rely on. Austrian Audio deliver every time. Through there impeccable manufacturing and great design I can always get an amazing sound with their mics. And mixing in loud environments is made much easier with the Hi X closed back range of headphones, I use them on every job
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.
Hi-X65 has an excellent design, but its standout feature is the exceptional fit! I’m also pleased to see the large ‘L’ and ‘R’ markings on the inside. I don’t usually wear headphones much, but when it comes to finishing work or while on the move, Hi-X65 provides the same impressive audio experience as my trusted speakers. It’s truly reliable.
The OD505 was a gift from a friend that introduced me to the Austrian Audio family. I use it as my main live microphone and the OD303 as a backup ever since I first tried it back to back vs another microphone I had been using for years. The difference was remarkable and I find that I have more longevity in my touring abilities since I made the change. I would 10/10 recommend to any metal vocalist with a touring schedule..
Dave Natale put the Austrian Audio Mics on my amps when he started with us. I have been so impressed with the sound of the OC18 on my Magnatone amps live, that I had to try them in my studio as well. I’m blown away by the detail and warmth. An absolute classic.
