Austrian Audio OC16 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone - Studio Set

Large diaphragm condenser microphone studio set featuring Austrian Audio's Open Acoustics technology, extremely robust build qulaity, and handmade CKR6 ceramic capsule

MFR# 20002F10100

Product Description

The Austrian Audio OC16 is the all-rounder condenser microphone your studio deserves — and for a shockingly affordable price. The OC16 combines the much-lauded OC series with the first installation into Austrian Audio’s “Open Condenser” large-diaphragm microphone series. The result is an open, natural, detailed sound with the utmost versatility, meaning the OC16 can brilliantly capture a wide range of instruments, like acoustic guitars, wind instruments, drum sets, vocals, and more. Because the OC16 was engineered to optimize speech intelligibility and quality, it’s also an excellent choice for podcasting, streaming, and online conferencing.

Austrian Audio’s “Open Acoustics” technology allows the OC16 to identify and eliminate acoustic interference within the microphone. By ridding itself of phenomena like standing waves and unwanted reflections, the OC16 boasts a distinctive, clear, and natural sound. The OC16 was constructed with a very precise cardioid pattern, so it’s excellent at effectively suppressing background noise, right down to your laptop’s fan. To add more value to the bundle, the OC16 comes with a practical soft case and an elastic spider suspension.

Like other microphones in the OC series, the OC16 touts an “Open Acoustics” design and is bolstered by Austrian Audio’s patented CKR ceramic capsules, which the manufacturer crafts by hand and tests individually in Vienna. By using ceramics instead of the usual brass, Austrian Audio has engineered a capsule more consistent than its competitors, which adds to the OC16’s longevity and stability. Additionally, the OC16’s low-cut / high pass filter eliminates both unwanted bass frequencies and the “proximity effect,” doing away with the heightening of bass frequencies when the mic is placed close to the sound source. Its high sound pressure tolerance even means that the OC16 can be used in front of loud sound sources without risking distortion.

So don’t wait! Order this Austrian Audio studio mic from Vintage King Audio today!

FEATURES:

  • Low-cut/High Pass Filter: 40 Hz to eliminate the lowest interference frequencies, 160 Hz to counteract the so-called 'proximity effect' - a bass boost that occurs when the microphone is positioned very close to the sound source
  • The microphone's flat design in combination with a low weight allows miking and precise alignment even in hard-to-reach places
  • The CKR capsule is suspended in the microphone at three elastic points keeping interference from structure-borne noise to a minimum, making it possible to use the microphone without a suspension stand
  • The OC16 can tolerate sound pressure of up to 148 dB SPL and can therefore be used without risk of distortion even in front of very loud sound sources
  • Includes suspension mount and case for ultimate protection in the studio and during transport

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
