The black E6 Directional Earset Mic, Medium Gain with Detachable 1mm Cable and 3.5mm Connector for Digital Recorders from Countryman is a vocal microphone with an adjustable boom that weighs less than one-tenth of an ounce. It can be used on either ear for capturing audio and rejecting unwanted sound, feedback, or surrounding noise from stage monitors or nearby speakers in houses of worship, theater, and outdoor vocal and speech applications.

The low-profile, directional E6 Earset virtually disappears against the skin, so performers will forget they're wearing a mic. This version offers medium gain for very loud speaking, such as in theater performances and most vocals.

In addition, the E6 Earset comes with two pattern-changeable protective caps for maximum isolation and gain before feedback. This directional E6 Earset's cable terminates to a 3.5mm connector for direct connection to Olympus DM-420, DM-520, DM-620, DS-2400, DS-40, DS-51, DS-61, DS-71, LS-10, LS-14, Roland R05, R09HR, Sony PCM-D50, PCM-M10, Tascam DR-05, DR-07mkII, DR-08, PR-10, Yamaha Pocketrak C24, Pocketrak W24, Zoom H1, H2, and Zoom H2n digital recorders (sold separately).

Miniature Unobtrusive Design
The Countryman earsets are very small, lightweight, and the least visible headworn microphones.
Rugged and Reliable
The E6's stainless steel boom is tough and can be bent and re-bent many times to fit different performers. It is highly resistant to makeup, sweat, and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps.
Versatile
The flexible boom is easily shaped right on the performers face and available in multiple skin tones. Changeable caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. The caps for the directional earset adjust the pattern from cardioid to hypercardioid.
Excellent Isolation
Easy adjustment keeps the mic in a comfortable position for rejecting unwanted sounds. the Directional E6 earsets provide more isolation and are suitable for houses of worship, theaters, and outdoor events.
Removable Cable
The included removable, quick-swap cable detaches from the actual headset, making it completely replaceable in the event of a short or break. The replaceable cable design makes upgrading wireless microphone systems easy as they are available in a wide selection of connections to accommodate most wireless transmitters.

My beige head worn (ear loop) countryman mic ...

My beige head worn (ear loop) countryman mic started breaking up - static, etc. The problem was in the connection between the cable and the mic. I rotated the part of the connector at the cable back and forth about a half turn, and it made less noise and cleared up after a few turns. Does this connector release from the mic if it is pulled out, or is it not meant to disconnect? I would like to disconnect it if possible and spray the connections with CAIG D5 to clean the connection.
Asked by: Tom
Yes, the Countryman E6 Earset Microphone does have a detachable cable. You can see the mic without the cable in the second photo and the cable is shown by itself in the fourth photo. The cable can be replaced if needed with the Countryman E6 & E6i Snap-on Replacement Microphone Cable (B&H # COE6CT1SR) which has a 3.5mm locking connector that is compatible for use with Sennheiser wireless bodypack transmitters. Countryman also offers replacement cables in different colors and with different connectors.

Will this Countryman E6 with 3.5mm locking ...

Will this Countryman E6 with 3.5mm locking connector work with any wireless transmitter that has a 3.5mm (1/8") input? For example, will it work with the Rodelink Filmmaker Wireless transmitters?
Asked by: Devin
The locking 3.5mm connector on this Countryman mic is wired for Sennheiser, but it will work with the Rode Filmmaker transmitters. Sony wires their 3.5mm mics differently, so this will not work with Sony transmitters. Countryman has many version of their mic models to cover most manufacturer's wiring and technical specifications.

question

How sturdy are these? We are replacing some Apex headsets that appear to be quite delicate, two have failed so far; they have been used and stored very carefully...
Asked by: Tom T.
Strong so far. Our new Senior Pastor has been using this brand for years and speaks very highly of it...hence buying new one for him. I would not recommend for kids being kids. Our guest speakers use same brand but older models (we have 3) and those have held up strong as well all these years. We have only had to replace the earclip once when it was sat on. Company stands behind their product!
