The cocoa B3 Omni Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with 3.5mm Locking Connector for 15BT and 35BT 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 B3 capsule is resistant to moisture (IP67), 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. This B3's cable terminates to a 3.5mm locking connector for direct connection to 15BT and 35BT Azden wireless bodypack transmitters 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 140 dB for wireless applications. 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.

is it good for Rode Wireless GO ?

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: Luciano
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.

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.
