Austrian Audio opened its doors in 2017 following the closure of the AKG offices in Vienna and set out to create something new, challenging, and respectful to its heritage. The new company started with a core team of previous AKG personnel from management, acoustics, electronics, test and measurement, mechanical design, RF/wireless and software/firmware, bringing 350 years of cumulative engineering experience to the new company.
Making passion heard
At the heart of Vienna is a deep tradition of love for music, which is why at the heart of the company's revolutionary OC818 and OC18 microphones you’ll find an equally passionate commitment to sound and engineering excellence. Nestled within each large diaphragm condenser (LDC) microphone is a carefully handcrafted Austrian Audio CKR12 ceramic capsule, designed and constructed by AA team of experts, right there in Vienna. Making your passion heard is what drives Austrian Audio to create the most exquisitely engineered products available today. Whether you’re a musician, singer, engineer, producer, or performer, AA will equip you with the best-sounding classic tools on the market.
Austrian Audio is also responsible for patents and proprietary technologies in audio, acoustics, transducers, noise canceling, and measurement tools, as well as specialised technologies in the aviation and telecom industries. The company's innovative products and processes are used throughout the world across many vertical markets.
Austrian Audio expertise doesn’t end there. The company also works with select industry leaders on feasibility studies, technology, and full product- development. AA offers testing, qualification, screening, certification, ODM and other development services within our core competencies of acoustics, mechanical engineering, electronics, DSP, software, and test and measurement.
