Clear, Natural and Accurate. For PA Systems and Venues of All Sizes.
Designed, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the OM3 is a dynamic vocal microphone used for a wide variety of live, studio and broadcast applications. The OM3 provides clear and accurate sound reproduction, resistance to feedback and ability to handle very high SPL (Sound Pressure Levels) without distortion.
The OM3 is designed with a tight and uniformly controlled hypercardioid polar pattern which helps to isolate the vocals from the rest of the instruments on stage. With a wide frequency range of 50 Hz - 18 kHz, the OM3 employs a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for a clean and natural sound with exceptional transient response.
The OM3 is naturally attenuated in the lower mid-bass frequencies in order to reduce boominess and handling noise. This, in conjunction with an extremely articulate mid-range, makes the OM3 an excellent choice for PA systems of all sizes. The OM3 is well balanced, comfortable to hold, durable and designed with high standards and tight tolerances.
The OM3 is manufactured with a precision die cast zinc alloy body, black E-coat finish, laser etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, Switchcraft or Audix XLR connector and heavy duty nylon clip.

USER TIPS: The OM3 has a very tight pick-up pattern in order to help eliminate sound from other instruments on stage from "bleeding" into the microphone. For best results, it is important to sing directly into the mic at close proximity (within 2 inches).
When using floor monitors, position the microphone so that it is parallel to the floor.
When using multiple microphones on a live performance stage, allow a distance of 2-3 feet between mics to avoid phase issues.
