The black B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with Hirose 4-Pin Connector for Sony Wireless Transmitters from Countryman is a water-resistant, miniature lavalier microphone for capturing high-quality audio. It can be used in a variety of applications such as a tie-clip lavalier in interviews, a hair-hidden mic for drama, a water-resistant mic for water sports and hurricane reporting, or simply a small mic to hide in a prop flower vase.

The capsule is resistant to moisture, which allows for placement in the hair or on bare skin, and its omnidirectional polar pattern minimizes handling noise, wind noise, and plosives (popping). Furthermore, a variety of skin-matching colors are available. The B3's cable terminates to a Hirose 4-pin (twist lock) connector for direct connection to a Sony DWT-B01 wireless bodypack transmitter. Additionally, a carrying case, two cable clips, a windscreen, and three protective caps are also included.

Unobtrusive

Looks great when you want to see it, virtually disappears when you don't. The B3 is easily hidden in hair or on costumes, with five colors to match clothing, hair, and skin tones. Use a felt tip marker to color the white caps for near-perfect concealability. Never suffer the hassle and degraded sound quality of under-clothing miking again.

Rugged and Reliable

The B3 is resistant to makeup, sweat, and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps, and works well in hair or on the body. The protective caps are easily removed for cleaning or replacement, and the aramid-reinforced cable gives it world-class survivability.

Refined Sound Quality

The B3 provides high-quality audio with low distortion at SPL up to 150 dB on 48V phantom power. The aramid cable and thin diaphragm combine to offer low handling noise. The flat frequency response accurately captures voice or instruments, and the small size makes the B3 easy to position for ambient noise and feedback rejection.

Versatile

Changeable protective caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. Versions are available for different speaking or singing styles, with high overload capability for recording instruments.

Sensitivity

Standard, for most uses.

The 3 different kinds of Hirose connection are selectable (DS, SO, and SY), and it says "see Description", yet the Description says nothing about these designations. Could you clarify?
Asked by: Dale
Sorry for the confusion. Once you select a given connector, the second paragraph in the "overview section" will specify which transmitters they are compatible with. SN = Sony WRT-805A and UWP Series Transmitters DS = Sony DWT-B01 SO = Sony WRT-28, WRT-820A, or WRT-860A SY = Sony WRT-8B, WRT-420, or WRT-822B I hope this helps

is it good for Rode Wireless GO ?
Asked by: MARAT
I've used int with the Rode wireless GO without issue. The 3.5mm snaps in all the way and there is still a little room to rotate the locking nut. My only issue is that my camera only records on one channel, but the Rode Lav Go mic records on both channels.

I have this mic with XLR connector, I would need to change it to 3.5mm Locking Connector in order to use it with my rode Wireless Transmitter. Is it possible? How?
Asked by: Geovanna
This microphone need 48v and that only runs through XLR cables, the best thing to do in this case is to try to get the same microphone with a 3.5mm without a locking pin to work with the Rode Go systems.

question

Does this work on a rode link system?
Asked by: Ruben H.
Yes. Currently, Rode is using the same exact wiring configuration on the Rodelink that Sennheiser uses in their evolution wireless (EWG3). For this reason, the Countryman B3 Omnidirectional Microphone (B&H# COB3W5BSR) will work with the latest Rodelink Systems.

hi, I'm looking at purchasing the countryman B3 lavalier mics. please between the low and the standard mic sensitives, which among the two is suitable for recording movie dialogues.
Asked by: Cephas
Low sensitivity lavs are generally reserved for subjects with BIG voices like those vocalists in Opera, Rock or public speakers with trained and loud elocution skills. Use the standard sensitivity for film, television, and most general application work.
