The Audix OM3 handheld microphone is a proven utility for capturing vocals and general instruments in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The OM3 is the first microphone in the Audix line to incorporate VLM technology, resulting in exceptionally high output levels and low-noise floor.

The dynamic capsule features a hyper-cardioid polar pattern that effectively minimizes noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the microphone. It's rugged enclosure is designed to withstand the rigors of use on the road. The OM3 is ideal for capturing vocals and instruments with high transient response such as drums, percussion, brass, guitar and more.
