BH #AUOM3S • MFR #OM3-S
Audix OM3S Handheld Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone with On/Off Switch
Key Features
  • Hypercardioid Polar Pattern
  • Dynamic Microphone Element
  • 50 Hz to 18 kHz Frequency Response
  • High Maximum SPL
The Audix OM3S is a handheld hypercardioid dynamic microphone designed to deliver highly directional capture of vocals and instruments in recording sessions and live stage applications. It boasts low handling noise and a hypercardioid polar pattern, which not only minimizes feedback caused by nearby monitors and speakers, but also reduces the pickup of stage bleed and room ambience. The dynamic element's low-mass diaphragm responds quickly to transients and handles sound pressure levels up to 144 dB.

It produces a frequency response of 50 Hz to 18 kHz with a mild rise peaking at just over 100 Hz along with a moderate presence boost above 2 kHz. The gold-plated XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most microphone preamps and mixer inputs, and the zinc alloy body with a dent-resistant steel mesh grille provides road-ready protection and durability. An on/off switch is provided for convenient muting of the mic between speeches or performances. The OM3S was designed, assembled, and tested in the USA, and ships with a microphone clip and carrying pouch.
