Designed, assembled and tested by audix in the usa, the om6 is a dynamic vocal microphone used for a wide variety of live, studio and broadcast applications. the om6 is known for its broad frequency response, full-bodied and articulate sound reproduction, resistance to feedback and ability to handle high sound pressure levels in excess of 144 db without distortion. the om6 is characterized 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 40 hz - 19 khz, the om6 employs a vlm™ (very low mass) diaphragm for a clean and natural sound with exceptional transient response. the om6 response is tailored with condenser-like qualities: a smooth rising response between 2k hz - 10 khz along with a flat and fully extended bass response from 60 hz - 1 khz. this, in conjunction with an extremely articulate mid-range makes the om6 an excellent choice for broadcast and live recording applications. the om6 is well balanced, comfortable to hold, durable and manufactured with high standards and tight tolerances. roadworthy construction includes a precision die cast zinc alloy body, black e-coat finish, laser etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, switchcraftÂ® xlr connector and heavy duty nylon clip.
