The tan B3 Omni Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with 4-Pin Hirose Connector for DWT-B01, DWT-G01, DWT-S01, and DWT-V01 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 4-pin Hirose connector for direct connection to DWT-B01, DWT-G01, DWT-S01, and DWT-V01 Sony 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 ?
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.

Which one do you prefer B3 or B6?

Which one do you prefer B3 or B6?
Asked by: Paul
It truly depends on your application. A B6 is great when you need to hide it into clothing or a wig for theater and show productions. B3's great for most standard applications such as interviews, plant mics, etc.

To be used hidden on clothes for film, do i need Standard or low sensitivity?
Asked by: juan
Mic sensitivity is related to how much gain you have to give the mic. A low sensitive mic would need more gain sent to it to get a good audio level, and is used for live stage use, or in a loud environments. The real issue you have to deal with when hiding a mic on clothes is keeping the head of the mic away from fabric rubbing on it. I would suggest a standard gain mic, and then utilize mic mounting solutions, such as the Bubblebee Industries Invisible Lavalier Microphone Covers, BH #BUBBIILC30. or the Remote Audio Foamies Foam Mounts for Lavalier Microphones (Set of 12, White), BH #REUFOAMIEWH. These products will protect the mic, and when properly placed on the talent, can provide the best sound, minus the clothing rubbing.
