Manufacturer's Description from Austrian Audio

The best of two worlds.

The OD505 Active Dynamic Vocal Microphone is designed primarily for the stage, though it is also a very capable microphone for studio application. Uncompromisingly robust, it combines all the advantages of a dynamic microphone with the tonal finesse of a condenser microphone.

The OD505 is the perfect choice for singers, podcasters and radio broadcasters. Its amazingly natural sound makes it very easy to shape and highlight a vocalist’s strengths.

Featuring Austrian Audio’s proprietary Open Acoustics Technology, the OD505 delivers a pristine, natural and resonance-free sound without any colouring.

Made in Austria.


Key Features

ODC50 active dynamic capsule: state-of-the-art dual capsule design for consistent sound and amazing noise suppression

3D Pop Noise Diffusor: specially designed for the OD505, this filter effectively reduces the impact of plosives.

Rugged die-cast body: for the most challenging live environments

Switchable Low cut filter: 120 Hz (2nd order)

Supercardioid: Directional characteristic


The heart of the OD505 - ODC50-SC active dynamic capsule

Making Passion Heard

The active front capsule requires 48V phantom power and, at 4.4 mV / Pa, has almost the same sensitivity as a condenser microphone. With its active circuitry, the OD505’s sound is always consistent, regardless of the internal resistance of the microphone preamplifier or length of connecting cables. The passive lower capsule is polarity-rotated, it senses and eliminates unwanted handling noise.

This state-of-the-art dual capsule design, together with the selectable 2nd order high-pass filter makes the OD505 practically immune to noise such as handling noises, bumps and stage knocks.

The OD505 also includes another Austrian Audio proprietary development: The 3D Pop Noise Diffuser. This filter is specially designed for the OD505 and effectively reduces the impact of plosives.

About Manufacturer

Following the closure of the AKG offices in Vienna, we set out to create something new, challenging, and respectful to our heritage. Opening our doors in July 2017, Austrian Audio was born.

Armed with a wealth of experience and a mission to make passion heard, our team of experts were ready to take on the industry giants by striving to produce products that embody the sound and engineering excellence one would expect from a company with our history.

We started with a core team of 22 former AKG personnel from management, acoustics, electronics, test and measurement, mechanical design, RF/wireless, and software and firmware – and are continuing to grow.

We may be relatively new, but the skill, knowledge, and tradition lives on at Austrian Audio, backed by over 350 years of cumulative engineering experience. And we’re not only focused on heritage: keep an eye on where our journey is taking technology, audio, and us.
