Really good for feedback rejection.
Tamtamtam, 17.09.2020
I have been using this microphone live for a couple of years, I would guess at around 70 gigs. It is not the best sounding microphone maybe, but the feedback rejection is really amazing in my experience. It takes some getting used to since you have to be really close to the microphone because of the pick up pattern, but that is why it rejects other sounds on stage. But be sure to practice this, since the pick up pattern is so tight it can actually reject the sound coming from your nose if you have the wrong angle, resulting in a stuffed nose sound.

I use a lot of effects on my vocals and that is why it is important for me to not have any other sounds leaking in to the mic, especially in smaller venues where the acoustic treatment might not be the best and a lot of the out sound gets to the stage as well.

And the build quality is really fantastic, it has been through a lot and the grill doesn't even have a dent.

Like the slim design and the black grill as well, plus it is easy to clean.

Love it
Joanna Jrmr, 18.04.2019
Bought it beacuse of feedback problems in our small rehearsal room. We play LOUD metal and it was impossible for me to push vocals' volume through amps&drums because feedback occured directly (especially with reverb/delay). Also, I was hearing way too much of the instruments through my in-ears monitors.

Now all those problems are solved. I was a bit afraid about that extra gain required, but I don't really have more on the mixer that with my old SM58.
Also, it is very solidly made... and extremely aesthetic. Really love the design: all black, minimalist yet elegant curved lines. Wow!

Hovewer, it really requires some discipline from the singer. The angle has to be stable and I must almost eat the mic ;) but that is not a big price for the comfort of growling as I want.

Totally recommend for metal vocalists.

Very solid mic
Michael1233, 19.06.2016
First things first, this mic is extremely well built. Very solid Audix build quality. The body is weighty, the XLR connection doesn't budge and the grille is very strong.

The clarity is pretty good, but being a hyper-cardioid mic with the capsule very near the grille, you tend to come across a LOT of proximity effect.

This mic sounds great once high passed and processed, but won't sound as good as other stage dynamics straight out of the box.

Good for vocalists with good mic technique, but doesn't sound good on vocalists who swerve on and off axis. The level and tonal change is very dramatic unless axis/distance remain very consistent.

Off axis rejection is very very good and gain before feedback is the best I've seen. Very useful indeed on loud stages.

Dave Rat (live engineer for Blink 182 etc.) has a great video demonstrating the off axis rejection of this mic here >>> >
Overall, I would only recommend using this mic if you are/you are working with a vocalist who understands the principle of mic polarity and proximity effect and is fighting against high stage volumes.

In most cases, you will get better results from an SM58 (less proximity effect and less off axis colouration), but if you are woking with an experienced stage singer with good mic technique on a loud stage - no other mic will do the job better than an Audix OM7.

Died on me after couple of months
17.09.2016
I heard Foo Fighters stopped using these because they aren't very resistant to sweat, well the same thing happened to me. I was satisfied with it and it's sound, until his sound characteristics became much much worse after i guess around 6 months of use on concerts.

so now it sounds very damp and muddy, it's really of no use whatsoever, not even for rehersals. for that i use SM58 that's actually 20 years old and still working fine
