Austrian Audio has announced the OD303, a new dynamic vocal microphone that they say allows singers and performers to get Austrian Audio quality sound without breaking the bank. Here's more of what they have to say about it...
The OD303 focuses on what's important: the best possible sound for your vocal performance. It is well-balanced and open, but at the same time its powerful sound is unparalleled in this price range.
With its rugged construction, the OD303 will withstand daily use in the rehearsal room and also the wear and tear of the road. The die-cast housing is virtually indestructible and the microphone fits comfortably in the hand.
The OD303 also incorporates the legendary Open Acoustic technology of Austrian Audio which delivers an optimally-shaped supercardioid polar pattern across a wide frequency band and with excellent feedback stability.
Sound engineers will greatly appreciate minimum changes in the sound and without increased feedback: Due to the open design, there are only minimal changes in sound and feedback behavior when holding the mic close to the head grille. In addition, the proprietary 3D Pop Noise Diffuser, developed by Austrian Audio, reduces noise caused by explosive sounds such as "T" and "P".
