Austrian Audio Open Acoustics On Shure

Interchangeable wireless microphone capsules released


28 April 2022

Austrian Audio has made a name for itself in recent years with its unique Open Acoustics technology. This makes exceptionally open and transparent sound possible. Now the authentic Austrian Audio OC Sound is accessible to even more artists with the new OD505 WL1 and OC707 WL1 Wireless Microphone Capsule for Shure radio systems.

Specifically tuned to the human voice, the OC707 WL1 provides great volume and allows all the subtlety and detail of the vocals to stand out in the mix without anything being overemphasised. The microphone’s proximity effect has been optimised so that it can be used to the singer’s advantage in any performance, retaining the character of their voice at various distances from the mic and with changes in mic technique.

Advantages of the Open Acoustic Design:

  • Perfectly formed supercardioid over a wide frequency range
  • Superb feedback characteristics
  • Reduced susceptibility to pop noise thanks to the innovative pop noise diffuser
  • No change in the sound and in the feedback behaviour when gripping directly on the microphone head grille
  • Excellent control over the proximity effect

The OD505 WL1 is a great performance partner for any artist, whether lead or backing vocals. It’s natural tuning and strong signal quality provide a solid foundation to bring out the strengths of any vocalist with minimal tweaking required. In many live situations, ambient noise is a big problem. That’s why a supercardioid was chosen as the directional characteristic for the OD505. This focuses on the voice, so drums or other loud instruments on stage are not additionally amplified through the vocal microphone.

OD505 WL1 – EU249/GBP229/US$299 RRP
OC707 WL1 – EU399/GBP359/US$479 RRP
