Large-diaphragm condenser microphone with multiple polar patterns, spider mount, mini XLR, mic clip, windshield, case

The new viennese original
Engineered and manufactured in Austria, The OC818 is Austrian Audio's premier, professional, large diaphragm microphone. Its high sensitivity, low self-noise and ability to handle everything from a whisper to extreme SPLs make it the most advanced microphone for studio, broadcast and live applications. As the unique ceramic capsule design is so consistent, any OC818 is match-paired with any other OC818, and when in cardioid mode, it can also be match-paired with any OC18, its affordable, smaller sibling.

The heart of the OC818
CKR12 Ceramic Capsule

    Two of these arrived just in time to do a live recording of an audio play, 9 actors on stage. Got a chance to compare - not direct A/B comparisons but enough to recognize the qualities. Other mics on stage were AKG C414 (TLii and ULS), Neumann TLM 103, Audio Technica 4080, ADK 3Zigma Lol 67. Read more
