With the OC16, Austrian Audio introduces a brand-new microphone in the "Open Condenser" large-diaphragm series equipped with Open Acoustics technology. The transparent and natural sound of OC microphones, which has been highly praised by the press and users, is the result of the combination of the patented CKR capsule and the "Open Acoustics" design approach developed by Austrian Audio. The OC16 has an extremely robust build-quality and is equipped with the CKR6 ceramic capsule - handmade in Vienna. Inspired by the sonic qualities of a much-loved microphone legend, our engineers focused on technological advancement and innovation when developing the CKR capsule. Newly available materials such as industrial ceramics are used: A highly insulating material that has the same mass and acoustic characteristics as the brass originally used, but at the same time, is far less error-prone in production and therefore more consistent for manufacture and product longevity and stability. Each and every one of these handmade CKR capsules is tested and measured in-house before leaving the factory. Austrian Audio's proprietary "Open Acoustics" technology eliminates acoustic interference, such as unwanted reflections and standing waves, within the microphone. The result is the well-known, open and natural Austrian Audio OC sound. In addition to the CKR capsule and the Open Acoustics technology, the OC16 microphone delivers with further aspects and features: Low-cut / High Pass Filter: 40Hz to eliminate the lowest interference frequencies. 160Hz to counteract the so-called 'proximity effect' - a bass boost that occurs when the microphone is positioned very close to the sound source. Design and weight: The microphone's flat design in combination with a low weight allows miking and precise alignment even in hard-to-reach places.
