The black Point Source Audio Series8 CO-8WL Omnidirectional Waterproof Lavalier Microphone (AKG and Audix) is a miniature mic designed to deliver a natural vocal sound for recording and live sound reinforcement applications such as concerts, musical theater, interviews, public speaking, and more. Featuring an unobtrusive mic element only 4mm in diameter, it can easily fit behind a button of the performer's clothing or be hidden in a hairline.

The Series8 CO-8WL's omnidirectional polar pattern allows for a variety of mic placement options as it picks up the voice from all directions equally and doesn't need to be lined up with the mouth. The mic offers an IP57 rating, which protects it against water, sweat, and makeup, commonly harmful to microphones.

The unit comes with a windscreen, cable clip, storage box, and an interchangeable TA3F/mini XLR X-Connector for AKG and Audix wireless systems.

IP57 Waterproof Rating

  • Microphone can be briefly submersed in water up to 3.3", making it resistant to sweat, water, and makeup

Easily Concealed

  • Mic element is only 0.16" / 4mm in diameter and easy to hide in a performer's clothing or hair

Omnidirectional Pickup Pattern

  • Omnidirectional polar pattern picks up voice from all directions equally and doesn't need to be lined up with the mouth
  • Allows for proximity to the sound source to provide ample gain-before-feedback

Interchangeable X-Connector

  • Included interchangeable X-Connector with threaded screw is simple to remove and remains securely in place

Asked by: Nicole
Hi Nicole, Good question! The boom mic on your CO-8WD headset is replaceable but that is with the CO-8WS single ear boom mic without the ear bend. If you would like us to service your headset, our Service Team can help you. Just submit a service request on our website www.point-sourceaudio.com > Contact > Support.
