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.
With the OD505 vocal mics we have best experiences regarding sound and minimal spill over with our very loud stage sound. Also on our US tour in 2022, many engineers were very interested in what we used to create our great sound!
I still love to use real instruments like my beloved upright piano! The CC8 pair I got is so well-matched that the stereo imaging is insane: XY or ORTF always a pleasure! Loving the midrange also perfect for coustic guitars!
The 818s are absolutely stunning! Not only they sound incredible on pretty much any source but they give me extreme flexibility to shape my sounds after the recording through PolarDesigner and Stereo Creator.
