Austrian Audio Open Acoustics Sound Now Available for Shure Wireless Systems

New interchangeable wireless microphone capsules
unveiled at the PL&S in Frankfurt
Pro Light & Sound, Frankfurt - Austrian Audio has made a name for itself in recent years with its unique Open Acoustics technology, which makes the exceptionally open and transparent sound possible. Now, the authentic Austrian Audio OC Sound is accessible for even more artists with the new OD505 WL1 and OC707 WL1 Wireless Microphone Capsule for Shure radio systems.
OC707 WL1
OD505 WL1
Perfectly matched to the human voice, the OC707 WL1 provides great volume and allows all the subtlety and detail of the vocals to stand out in the mix without anything being overemphasized. The microphone’s proximity effect has been optimized so that it can be used to the singer’s advantage in any performance, retaining the character of their voice at various distances from the mic and with changes in mic technique.
Advantages of the Open Acoustic Design:
  • Perfectly formed supercardioid over a wide frequency range 
  • Superb feedback characteristics
  • Reduced susceptibility to pop noise thanks to the innovative pop noise diffuser 
  • No change in the sound and in the feedback behavior when gripping directly on the microphone head grille
  • Excellent control over the proximity effect 
The OD505 WL1 is the perfect performance partner for any artist, whether lead or backing vocals. It’s natural tuning and strong signal quality provide the perfect foundation to bring out the strengths of any vocalist with minimal tweaking required. In many live situations, ambient noise is a big problem. That’s why a supercardioid was chosen as the directional characteristic for the OD505. This focuses on the voice, so drums or other loud instruments on stage are not additionally amplified through the vocal microphone.
  • Europe: OD505 WL1 €249 - OC707 WL1 €399 RRP
  • UK: OD505 WL1 £229 - OC707 WL1 £359 RRP
  • US: OD505 WL1 $299 - OC707 WL1 $479

Sennheiser introduces the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 – redefining the limits of possibility

Old Lyme, CT, April 26, 2022 – The multi-award-winning MOMENTUM series from Sennheiser introduces a new member to the family. The MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 sets new standards when it comes to sound quality, adaptive noise cancellation (ANC), and wearing comfort. Encased in a design that was defined using high-quality materials and precise workmanship, the earbuds offer a range of technologies and features that take the listening experience to a new level. 



"Our MOMENTUM series continuously succeeds in redefining the boundaries of possibility," said Frank Foppe, Sennheiser True Wireless Product Manager. "The MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 builds on a powerful heritage.  With the Sennheiser Signature Sound,  TrueResponse technology, next-level adaptive noise cancellation and an even better fit, these earbuds are the natural successor of the MOMENTUM series."  

A superior sound experience  
Just like its predecessors, the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 delivers outstanding sound quality, centered around Sennheiser's True Response transducer. Based on dynamic 7mm drivers manufactured in Germany, it produces an immersive stereo sound with deep bass, natural mids and detailed highs. The new Sound Personalization feature provides an enhanced sound experience via a guided listening test to setup the perfect sound for each user’s individual hearing. In addition, the Smart Control App offers a choice of presets and an equalizer feature to tailor the sound to the user’s taste.  

Since the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 was created for everyday life, especially on the go, Sennheiser has specifically improved the earbuds with Adaptive Noise Cancellation which automatically adjusts to your environment. The system continuously observes ambient noise to suppress it in real time. Users who want to be aware of their surroundings to hear things such as train announcements, for example, can deactivate the noise cancellation at the touch of a button, or switch to transparency mode. 

For the best possible synchronization between audio and visual content, the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 also supports a wide range of audio codecs such as AAC, SBC and aptX™ Adaptive, which reduce latency to a minimum. In addition, each earbud now features three microphones that promote crystal-clear call quality, enabling smooth and easy-to-follow video calls. The intuitive touch control of the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3, which users can tailor to their personal preferences, makes it easier to navigate the audio and access voice assistants. 



Exceptional design and extraordinary comfort 
Winner of a 2022 Red Dot Design Award, the new stylish and futuristic ergonomic design enables a long-lasting comfortable fit. The MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 also comes with several silicone pads in different sizes that are designed to fit all ear shapes and sizes. Thanks to its IPX4-certified splash-resistant casing, the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 is made for almost any adventure. Whether it's running in the rain or a strenuous fitness session, the new Sennheiser earbuds deliver a top-class listening experience even under adverse conditions.  

No matter where users of the new MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 may be, a battery life of seven hours – which can be extended to 28 hours using the case – means that users no longer have to worry about finding a power source nearby. And because the high-quality case supports wireless charging, the process itself is easy as it can be.   

Pricing and availability 
The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 can be pre-ordered today and will be available May 10th with an MSRP of $249.95 USD in black, white and graphite.
