Countryman H6 Headset Microphone
Countryman Associates introduces the H6 Headset Microphone designed for theater, broadcast, live music performance, and more.
Available in both omni and directional versions, the new Countryman H6 Headset features the same microphone capsule as the Countryman E6 Omni Earset Mic. The new H6 features a capsule at 0.1-inch (2.5 mm) in diameter—roughly the size of a No. 2 pencil lead. The capsule is offered in three sensitivities (7 mV/Pa, 2 mV/Pa, and 0.7 mV/Pa) with 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response.
The microphone employs a lightweight and adjustable headframe. It comes available in four colors—light beige, tan, cocoa, and black—to match a range of skin tones.
The H6 Headset Microphone features a slim, 1.2 mm cable with a break strength exceeding 44 lbs. (20 kg). This interchangeable cable can also be the interface to a myriad of wireless microphone systems. Switching among different wireless transmitter packs is like swapping a cable. The new H6 and its various cables interface to nearly all wireless transmitters, digital recorders, or XLR mic inputs with phantom power.
Pricing & Availability:
The new Countryman H6 Headset Microphone carries a MSRP of $670 (Omni version) and $720 (Directional version). It is expected to become available in late May.
