Audix

A great sounding vocal mic for a friendly price.

Designed, assembled and tested in Wilsonville, Oregon, the OM2 is a dynamic vocal microphone used for a wide variety of live, home and studio applications. The OM2 utilizes a tight, uniform pattern, which helps isolate vocals from the other instruments on stage. This provides outstanding feedback rejection and allows vocals to cut through the mix.

Designed with a slight bass proximity and a tailored mid-range, the OM2 has a full-bodied sound on small to mid-sized PA systems while retaining true sound on large or professional PA systems.

With a wide frequency range of 50 Hz - 16 kHz, the OM2 employs a VLM diaphragm for a clear, precise sound with exceptional voice response. The OM2 is manufactured with a precision die cast zinc alloy body, beautiful black E-coat finish, and durable spring steel mesh grill to provide years of rock solid reliability. Includes heavy-duty nylon clip and carrying pouch.

Features

  • Excellent isolation for maximum feedback rejection, helping vocals cut through the mix
  • Warm, full sound optimized for small to mid-size PA systems
  • Handles high SPLs without distortion

    I own 2 Audix OM2s and absolutely love this mic! It has a relatively flat response so it doesnt color your voice and you sound like you! I'm in a gigging rock band that regularly plays to 100-200 people and I use this mic for singing live and for recording in the studio! You can get awesome vocal takes with this mic for recording, its very condenser like in sound in my opinion. Also feedback wise its on par with an SM58, I've never had it feedback on me in a live situation. I gave it a 4.5 though in features because its a little to crispy and treble heavy for using live IF you occasionally yell or scream in your music otherwise its GREAT. I occasionally yell or scream so I'm now using a Sennheiser e835 live which isnt as top heavy and has more warmth. But I still use this mic live and to record. It is absolutely AWESOME in the studio for vocals!

    I'm a singer for a hardrock band. I had the opportunity to use this mic recently for an acoustic show down in Portland, and I must say, I was excited to give it a spin. I'd always heard great things about Audix, although I'm a faithful Sennheiser man, myself.A few songs into the set, I noticed a rather stupid amount of feed back. I was facing the monitors, and I still got feedback, in a quiet, acoustic setting! Kind of ugly.A bit of eq adjustment, however, and we were running. This mic must have a crazy hot output to be getting such squeal in such a quiet setting. It was probably meant to be more of a workhorse for the loud, workingman jam-band.For my purposes, I wasn't digging it. I would take my sennheiser e835 over this humdoggy any day. But I would love to check out the om5, as I've heard amazing things about it.However, if you want an amazing mic at the same price as this here, go to SENNHEISER E835. You will not be disappointed!

      Comments about Audix OM2 Microphone:

      Bought my first Audix OM2 as the stupid deal of the day. Should have been marked SMART Deal of the Day! Incredible mic for the price paid! just ordered my second one. This mic gives great crisp and clear vocals with higher pressure levels than my SM 58s ever could before feedback. A great all American mic made in the USA!!!

        For the price, this is a great mike! Feels good in your hand. Sounds great. And has a real solid weight/feel to it. Had some success with Audix over the past few years. These OM2's seem like they will add to it.

          Comments about Audix OM2 Microphone:

          I purchased this mic because I needed a backup mic while waiting for my Heil PR-22 to get repaired. I didn't want to spend a lot on another vocal mic, but since I play and sing in several groups, I could not get a low quality vocal mic. I also never really liked the sound and response of the tried-and-true SM58, and I prefer a hypercardiod pattern to better isolate my vocals. This mic seemed to fit my criteria, and came well recommended after reading many reviews. While it is no Heil large-diameter capsule mic, it is darn near close! I experienced great reproduction, with my vocals absolutely cutting thru the mix during an open mic night with my 4-pc acoustic-electric group. The OM2 also helped bring out my vocals with my 8-pc soul band, including cutting thru and above the horn section. All without a hint of feedback or bleedover. Although it does exhibit a bit of handling noise compared to my Heil and my ElectroVoice N/D's, it also costs much less, so I'd say it's a fair tradeoff. At this pricepoint, I can't see how anyone could go wrong having this mic in their locker. I know I will definitely recommend this one to all my musician friends with confidence.

            Comments about Audix OM2 Microphone:

            Been using an SM58 for years and even though that is a great mic I have to say that when switching to the OM2, I lost alot of the muddiness and I was able to pull out alot of the mids to acheive a very lifelike reproduction of my voice. I sing through a Bose L1 system and I now feel that my vocal sound is complete.

            Comments about Audix OM2 Microphone:

            This is an awesome microphone, let me just say that before this i used to use the sennheiser e835 which i though was good but this audix OM2 surpasses it. This microphone is extremely clear and durable. I cannot trash on the Shure SM58 because i have not used it yet. Think outside the box people and you wont regret going with this one.

            We have been using 2 audix om2 in rehearsal with my rock band for a month now. We practice in a very small space and the sound tends to bounce alot. This mic has changed the way we hear our 2 singers. Their voices are clear, stand out and the feedback we got from our older mics is reduced to down to almost nothing. Great improvement for us.

            OM2 is the 1 for you

            Comments about Audix OM2 Microphone:

            The Audix OM2 is , IMO, the best pro sound, anti feedback mic I've used. I own a senn. e 815, and 2 e-822's. I compared the om2 to a 58 and the e-835 (which I origally went to go buy). First off, the sm58 is out of the question compared to this mic. I brought home the sennheiser e 835 knowing the OM2 sounded better and had less feedback because it was a sennheiser, and I didn't want to switch brands. I got home and it sounded like the mics I already had. I called the store and drive 23 miles to exchange it the same day for the OM2. It's has the sound and feedback resistance I have been looking for for a long time. I did a dj gig set up in between 2 2x15 cabs cranked up all night, where the sennheiser would have been howling and squeeling, I left this mic on all night with no problem. It cut through the music like cheese. I even turned up the treble all the way to see what it would do, and it slowly started to feed back, same with the lows, and the sound is a sound that does not sacrifice highs or lows, its a full range, warm sound with a clear intelligable smooth creamy mids. (hotter than the Sennhieser and 58 at high volume but you have to almost kiss it)I'm sold on this Audix!
