HypercardioidAudix OM3

Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone

The Audix OM3 is a handheld vocal dynamic with a Hypercardioid polar pattern.

Like the other OM-series vocal mics, the OM3 uses a durable body made of zinc alloy, coated in black “E-coat” non-glare finish. The grille is a steel mesh, with internal blast filtering.

The published specs for the OM3 are very similar to the OM2; the OM3 has a subtly different frequency response, is slightly more directional at high frequencies, and is more sensitive than the OM2 (2.5 mV/Pa vs. 1.7 mV/Pa).

According to Audix, the OM3 has less proximity effect, a slightly tighter pickup pattern, and more clarity in the mids than the OM2, all of which combine to sound better than the OM2 on large PA systems.

The Audix OM3 is also known as: OM3S.
