Austrian Audio OC18 Condenser Microphone Studio Set

The single-pattern sibling to Austrian Audio's flagship OC818, the Austria-made fixed-cardioid OC18 captures clear, natural sound on sung and spoken vocals.

The OC18 is Austrian Audio's affordable large diaphragm microphone; it's a classic cardioid directional pattern with identical acoustic characteristics as its big brother the OC818.

- Consistent Performance:
Engineered and manufactured in Austria, its high sensitivity and low self-noise means it can handle everything from a whisper to extreme SPLs without distortion, making it the perfect choice for studio, live, and broadcast applications. The unique ceramic capsule design is so consistent, the OC18 can be match-paired with any other OC18 or paired with any OC818 set in cardioid mode.

1x OC18 microphone, 1x protective carry case, 1x OCS8 spider mount suspension, 1x OCW8 foam windshield, 1x OCH8 mic clip
