Sanken COS-11D Overview

The black Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity and LEMO 3-Pin Connector for Lectrosonics Transmitters is a subminiature lav microphone designed to deliver clear, full-bodied sound and reliable performance, making it a popular choice among industry professionals in broadcast, TV, theater, film, videography, and more. 

Engineered to meet the standards of modern digital wireless microphone systems, the COS-11D is RF shielded to eliminate interference issues and ensure a pristine audio signal. The microphone capsule features a rectangular design that sits vertically, increasing the surface area and allowing this tiny mic to offer a rich, full sound that outperforms many larger models.

The mic's 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response rolls off extreme low end and provides accurate, transparent audio reproduction with a small presence boost in the 6 kHz area for crisp, intelligible speech. With a forgiving omnidirectional polar pattern that picks up sound in a 360° pattern, levels stay consistent, even when the subject turns away from the mic.

A water-resistant mesh screen protects against humidity, perspiration, makeup, bad weather, and other potential on-location issues, while the durable cable is also moisture resistant and built to stay soft and pliable, even after extended use. This version of the COS-11D terminates in a 3-pin LEMO connector and is wired for use with Lectrosonics transmitters. A metal windscreen, holder clip, rubber mount, and plastic case are included.

LEMO 3-Pin Connector

Compatible Wireless Transmitters

  • Lectrosonics bodypack transmitters and recorders equipped with a 3-pin LEMO connector, including the SSM.
  • Third-party wireless transmitters and portable audio recorders equipped to supply 3 to 10 VDC through a 3-pin LEMO connector wired for Lectrosonics compatibility.

Broadcast-Quality Sound and Dependable Performance

Subminiature Mic with a Big Sound

The camera-ready COS-11D features a subminiature capsule that enables the microphone to be inconspicuous and easily disguised in clothing or costumes. The unique vertical diaphragm design offers a clear and natural sound optimized for the human voice.

Normal Headroom for Standard Speech

This version of the mic features a normal sensitivity setting for standard speech at levels up to 123 dB SPL.

Omnidirectional Polar Pattern

The forgiving omnidirectional polar pattern picks up sound from all around the mic and provides a consistent frequency response, even for off-axis sound. This helps supply clear, intelligible speech and vocals, even when the talent isn't speaking directly toward the microphone.

Tough, Water-Resistant Construction for Indoor/Outdoor Locations

The water-resistant front mesh screen provides reliable protection from perspiration and moisture, making the mic a solid performer in all kinds of weather. The rugged cable is also built to resist moisture and handling noise and stay pliable, even after repeated uses.

This microphone requires 48v Phantom Power. You would need to use an active XLR adapter, of which there are many to choose from, or a simple Phantom Power Supply. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/577469-REG/PSC_FPSC0001_48_PHantom_Single.html

Is there an option to connect it to a XLR input camcorder? Also will it work with my phone's 3.5mm headphone port?
Asked by: Jared
A Rode VXLR+ 3.5mm TRS Female to XLR Male Adapter with Phantom Power Converter, BH #ROVXLR, will allow you to plug this mic into a camera with XLR input, which would be able to provide 48 volt phantom power to the mic. To connect this to a smartphone, you would adapt the end to TRRS with a Rode SC4 3.5mm TRS Female to 3.5mm Right-Angle TRRS Male Adapter Cable for Smartphones, BH #ROSC4. The smartphone will power the mic in this case.

Are these locking 3.5mm / &acirc;…›in connections compatible with the Saramonic uwmic9? The wireless receiver has a bit of a lip around the outlet&acirc;€&brvbar;
Asked by: J Perry
Saramonic seems like copy of Sony system so most probably will not work because wiring is not the same. It can be expensive gamble.

I bought this one. I have a question. If i connect sony transmitter this without phantom power, is it operating?
Asked by: lee
The COS-11D requires 3 to 10V of plug-in power, not phantom power. Phantom power is higher voltage of 12 to 48V. The Sony transmitter will supply the proper amount of plug-in power needed for the COS-11D.

No, the Sony wiring of this mic is not compatible with the RodeLink. Here's a Sennheiser wired version of the COS-11D that would be compatible B&amp;H # SAC11WNSETRB.

will this work with an Audio Technica ATW T101 body pack?
Asked by: Joseph
While the Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity &amp; Servo-Bias TA5F Connector for Lectrosonics Transmitters is wired with a TA5F connection also found on microphones wired for Audio Technica, it is not recommended for use with transmitters other than Lectrosonics. The definitively compatible option would be BH #SAC11ANATT5W Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity &amp; TA5F Connector for Audio-Technica Transmitters.
