Band colors for countryman headset?
Asked by: Anonymous
Countryman designates the sensitivities of the mics in 2 ways, a letter/number combination, and associated band color. They are as follows, W5 = no colored band is for general speaking. W6 = blue band is for very loud speaking, or vocal performance, and W7 = purple band with headroom for the most powerful vocal performance.

question

Hello.I wanted to know if is a TA4F Mini-XLR option for this headset?Thanks
Asked by: NFCC M.
Yes, there are H6 headsets available with a TA4F connector. Please be aware that the connectors are wired for use with specific wireless transmitters, so even if the connector type is the one you need, it may not work with your transmitter. For example, Beyerdynamic, Mipro, Sabine all use TA4F connectors, but the internal wiring of the connectors is different. Please contact us before placing your order and we can help you to select a mic that is compatible for use with your wireless system. You can reach us by phone at 800-606-6969.
