Austrian Audio – Made in Vienna. Again.

6.11.2019 | Mikrofone

Austrian Audio – gegründet von ehemaligen AKG-Mitarbeitern, hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, den Slogan „Made in Vienna“ neu aufleben zu lassen. Gestartet wurde zunächst mit den Mikrofonen OC818 und OC18, die wir in diesem Beitrag kurz vorstellen möchten.



OC18 – Large Diaphgram Condenser Microphone

  • As per the OC818 but classic cardioid
  • same handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule but single diaphragm
  • factory calibrated bias voltage
  • it’s a classic “Made in Vienna” mic, of course, but stripped down to the essentials
  • every Austrian Audio OC18 and OC818 is within 1dB of each other so any two microphones is a stereo pair!
  • add an OC18 to an OC818 for a spaced pair at any time!
  • debuts Austrian Audio’s Open Acoustics Technology


OC818 – Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Multiple Polar Patterns

Handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule, made to same critical dimensions as the best legacy CK12 capsules we could find, measure, and record

  • multiple polar patterns
  • microprocessor control of polarization voltages
  • 2 different analog high-pass filters with 3 settings
  • 2 different types of analog pads
  • dual out- puts for recording each diaphragm separately
  • debuts Austrian Audio’s Open Acoustics Technology
  • handmade in Vienna, again!
