The OM2 is a low impedance microphone and should be plugged into the “mic level” input of your console, mixer, or recording device. Please note that your microphone does not require phantom power and will not be effected in any way by phantom power should it be running simultaneously while the microphone is in operation. Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone from the PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud “popping” noise which could seriously damage the speakers in the PA system.
The OM2 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.

Vocal & instrument mic, full, clear sound with slight bass proximity, for small to mid-size PA systems
Designed, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the OM2 is a dynamic vocal microphone used for a wide variety of live and studio applications. The OM2 is known for its clear and accurate sound reproduction, resistance to feedback and ability to handle very high sound pressure levels without distortion.
The OM2 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 50 Hz - 16 kHz, the OM2 employs a VLM™ (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural sound with exceptional transient response.
The OM2 is designed with slight bass proximity and a tailored mid-range, giving it a full bodied sound on small to mid-size PA systems. The OM2 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, Switchcraft® XLR connector and heavy duty nylon clip.
