Vienna, Austria (June 7, 2021)—Austrian Audio has released its new OC18 Dual Set Plus, bundling together a pair of its OC18 large capsule condenser microphones with a variety of accessories.
In all, the OC18 Dual Set Plus kit includes two OC18 large diaphragm condenser microphones with cardioid polar patterns; pairs of OCS8 microphone shock mounts, OCW8 foam windscreens and OCH8 mic clips; and a SB1 stereo bar. A protective carrying case is also provided for transportation and storage of the kit.
A relatively new name on the microphone scene, Austrian Audio opened its doors in 2017 following the closure of the AKG offices in Vienna, starting with a core team of former AKG personnel from management, acoustics, electronics, test and measurement, mechanical design, RF/wireless and software/firmware.
In July, 2021, Real-World Reviewer Rob Tavaglione covered the OC818, citing its “incredible versatility” as he noted that “the 818 is an easy recommendation at a very reasonable $999. Easy stereo-pairing with other 818s and the OCR18 is another big plus that makes these mics a great choice for live show ‘tapers,’ recording ambiences and classical recordists. It seems to me that Austrian Audio is off to a great start and are moving their legacy forward in worthwhile new directions.”
The kit is available in the US for MSRP $1,699.
