The beige version of the Point-Source Audio Series8 Omnidirectional Earworn Microphone (Shure) is designed for live sound reinforcement applications where ambient noise is low to moderate such as for concerts, plays, and public speaking. The microphone fits over either the subject's left or right ear and features a 360° bendable and unbreakable boom with an omnidirectional back electret microphone element. The IP57 waterproof rating helps prevent moisture, sweat, or makeup from interfering with the sound.

The microphone can handle a maximum SPL of 148 dB with a sensitivity of -54 dB ±3 dB (0 dB= 1V/microbar at 1 kHz) and a frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hz. The unit comes with a windscreen, clothing clip, storage box, a 4' cable, and an interchangeable 4-pin mini-connector for Shure.

    Point Source Audio CO-8WS Reviews

    Series8 Omnidirectional Earworn Microphone (Shure, Beige) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible customer service from Point Source I'm writing to comment on the warranty service provided by Point Source. The mic sounds fine - when it works. I ordered 14 of these Series 8 and 10 Series 5 models for our theatre. They functioned fine for a few months, then one by one they all developed a short in the cable just below the ear piece and became unusable. After a LONG negotiation with Point Source customer service (the company president even got involved), they chose to not honor a single warranty on any of the mics. So, buyer beware. You may be getting a slightly less expensive mic than say, a Countryman E6, or the DPA d:fine, but you will pay the price when they all fail and you are left with nothing. Worst customer service I have ever experienced in 26 years of pro audio.
