The Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Microphone is a miniature lavalier microphone for virtually invisible operation during stage performances, video and film shoots, houses-of-worship applications and general public speaking.

The capsule measures only 0.1" in diameter and is resistant to moisture, which allows for placement in hair and on bare skin. In addition, its omnidirectional polar pattern minimizes handling noise, wind noise and plosives (popping), making the B6 a favorite in theater applications.

A wide variety of colors and connections are available for use with various wireless transmitters. This B6 is black and the cable terminates to a 3-pin XLR connector for direct connection to microphone preamplifiers, mixers, etc.

Miniature Unobtrusive Capsule
The miniature capsule measures only 0.1" (2.5mm) in diameter making the B6 virtually invisible and easily hidden in hair, costumes, and props. The B6 is available in various colors that virtually render the entire microphone invisible. For more information on which color suits you best, refer to the Countryman support page.
Moisture Resistant Frequency Caps
Three frequency response altering caps provide flat, bright and very bright high-frequency enhancement. In addition the caps are resistant to moisture caused by perspiration, make-up, humidity, etc.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The omnidirectional polar pattern is most effective in minimizing wind noise, plosives (popping) and handling noise.
Sensitivity Optimized for General Applications
The B6 is available in three sensitivity response specifications. This version is optimized to accurately capture speech without noise and distortion.

      Comments about Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Black):

      As a keyboard accompanist and supporting vocalist, I found it impossible to play my best when glued to a boom mic. I tried wireless but found it clumsy and the sound quality unreliable. Then I found this mic online. Yes, I have to remember not to stand up and walk away when it's clipped on, but it's well worth that effort. This wired lavalier has all the sound quality of a wired handheld and no wireless worries.

      Perfect tool to get the job done

      By Craig

      Comments about Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Black):

      Didn't take long listening to my audio track to realize that I got exactly what I needed in my interview and it sounded exactly like I wanted it to when I was shopping for a lav mic. The results speak for themselves and they don't disappoint.

        I'm an independent video producer, and this mic has been a terrific addition to my kit.

        It's incredibly easy to hide and has great quality sound. I use it with my Zoom (but make sure Phantom Power is on, since the mic doesn't come with it's own power source!), and it's a great set-up.
