I use this pair of microphones on vocals, cello, guitar and plan to use them on upright and grand pianos after confinement. I find that they capture sources beautifully, with excellent balance and width, as well as gorgeous clarity and detail. My immediate impression following my first takes: clear/smooth highs, full-bodied mids and tight/clear bass. I hesitated for a long time between the OC818, AKG 414, Neumann 103, Neumann 107 and several other models. They are all very good microphones, but numerous online tests made the OC818 a clear winner for me and I am very happy with my choice. This pair doesn't come in a case. If that's important to you, consider buying two separate OC818 mics or contacting AA if you want them out of the factory as a stereo pair in cases. My advice is to listen to a lot of tests of this model and comparable microphones - take breaks and keep coming back to the tests until one model consistently sticks out as your favourite. I strongly recommend the OC818.

Nutze das Mikro überwiegend für Gitarre und Gesang. Sehr ausgewogener, warmer, klarer Klang. Durch die unterschiedlichen Richtcharakteristiken kann man einiges probieren und gestalten, zB beim Satzgesang mit der eigenen Stimme.
Das einzige, was ich mir gewünscht hätte bei einem Mikro dieser Preisklasse wäre eine ordentlicher Metallkoffer, wie man das von anderen Mikrofonherstellern gewohnt ist.
