Audix OM7 Dynamic Vocal Microphone
Concert Level Professional Vocal Microphone with Unprecedented Gain Before Feedback
Dynamic vocal microphones are the most popular type of vocal microphone for live performances because of their durability, flexibility, pattern control and cost. Between 1986 and 1989, Audix broke new ground with the OM Series of vocal microphones with VLM™ (Very Low Mass) technology. These microphones received critical acclaim and set new performance records for clarity, SPL (Sound Pressure Level) handling and gain before feedback, particularly on stages with very high noise environments.
Popular with professional performers, live sound and broadcast engineers, Audix dynamic vocal microphones are chosen by artists such as: Alanis Morissette, Of Monsters and Men, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, The Doobie Brothers, Ani DiFranco, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimmy Eat World and Alkaline Trio, to name a few.
The OM7 vocal dynamic microphone is used by professional sound companies, front of house and mixing engineers as well as high profile fixed installations. The OM7 provides unprecedented gain before feedback on concert level stages without sacrificing sound quality. In addition, the mic is very resistant to feedback on extremely loud stages and for performers who tend to “cup” the microphone with both hands.
In order to achieve these extraordinary performance benefits, the OM7 dynamic vocal microphone is designed with an unconventionally low output level (8-10 dB lower than typical dynamic microphones). This low output level acts as a natural “pad” at the capsule in order to maintain high fidelity at the source. The OM7 hypercardioid microphone is best suited for use with high quality mixing consoles which have plenty of head room to compensate for the low gain.
