Countryman B6 overview

  • 1Description

The cocoa B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone, Standard Sensitivity, with Hardwired 3.5mm Locking Connector for Sennheiser Wireless Transmitters from Countryman is a very small lav microphone measuring one tenth of an inch in diameter with changeable protective caps, which provide moisture resistance and color options. The mic can be used to capture audio for theater, broadcast, churches, and general lavalier applications.

Built with a low handling noise and rugged construction, the B6 lavalier microphone can be easily hidden in hair or on costumes, or taped to a performer's face. The aramid cable and ultra-thin diaphragm deliver a natural sound while its tiny size makes the B6 easy to position for ambient noise and feedback rejection. The B6's cable terminates to a 3.5mm locking connector for direct connection to a Sennheiser Evolution Series (G2 and G3), ew 100, ew 300, ew 500, or SK 1093 wireless bodypack transmitter.

Additionally, swappable protective caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or match other microphones. The B6 microphone is resistant to makeup, sweat, and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps. These caps can be quickly removed for cleaning or replacement.

Unobtrusive
Looks great when you want to see it, virtually disappears when you don't. The B6 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 B6 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 B6 provides high-quality audio with low distortion at SPL up to 140 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 B6 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.

    Countryman B6 reviews

    B6 Omni Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with Hardwired 3.5mm Locking Connector for Sennheiser Wireless Transmitters (Cocoa) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Exceedingly Poor Design Poor design, notably surpassed by lousy manufacturer customer service. On paper the B6 sounds great, but in practice it flounders. The protective cap, which the mic requires for nearly all occasions, gets stuck inside the windsock (which itself has a tiny plastic structure inside to hold the two together). Once the cap is stuck inside it is nearly impossible to remove & to make matters worse the mic cannot be used inside the B6 windsock without the cap attached (due to the aforementioned plastic structure inside). I tested three black B6 windsocks, all had the same issue. The white B6 windsocks I tested had no problem though.Acoustically the B6 is superb, the size too is unmatched, but unfortunately Countryman have placed far too much reliance on the protective caps to deliver full functionality from the B6 microphone. Where the caps should be on par with the importance of the aerial on your car for instance, on the B6 they are more like the car's windscreen! Yes can still drive without it, but with great difficulty. On a number of shoots I had to give up in the end, that is, rather than keep the client waiting while I attempted to fix the B6 I simply used the original Sennheiser ME2 instead. * You can't use the B6 on the skin without the cap (or risk moisture damage). * You can't use the B6 in the windsock without the cap. * You can't use the B6 outside clothing, outdoors, without the windsock & therefore the cap. The B6 only ships with one flat response cap. Once that's stuck inside the windsock what are you to do?To add insult to injury Countryman do no respond to emails seeking assistance (sent through their own webpage) so you will be left high & dry. I sent numerous requests for assistance... Even then answers to simple questions took weeks. A replacement windsock (which was still faulty) took months to arrange.In the end the problem was resolved with a refund (for two B6 mics), but this took four months, cost me well over $100 in shipping & easily that again in currency conversion fees & exchange rate differences. Avoid the B6 like the plague. Stick with Sanken, Sennheiser or Sony if for no other reason than they answer emails! After the dramas I've had I would not accept the Countryman B6 as gift, indeed I won't be purchasing Countryman ever again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for concealment The B-6 is great little mic when you need to be less then obvious, or just hidden. It has a good sound and is on of the best choices for the film, video nd play world. It is frail and must be handled with care. The cable is very thin and does allow you to hide in hair, etc.
    Date published: 2015-02-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic, WAY better than the kit mic.. This is a great mic and much needed upgrade for the Sennheiser wireless kit. A little small and delicate if you are used to the Sennheiser lavs, but sound MUCH MUCH better.
    Date published: 2011-06-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Own and Use Daily on Indie Films and TV Great sound when mounted correctly and has proven to be of great value in difficult wardrobe situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound a small to hide Great to hide in tie knot.
    Date published: 2014-09-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny, high-quality lag mic This microphone is a tiny lavaliere style designed to plug into a 1/8 mini jack with screw-down connection. It offers great sound quality and, despite its diminutive size, is pretty tough. It comes with several different end caps and a shirt clip. It also includes a nice zippered pouch to store the package. A bit expensive but worth it if you need a small, high-quality lavaliere that will stand up to daily production.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and mighty! After using one of these on another film crew, I marveled at it's small size, big sound and the ability to hide it. As soon as I got home I bought one. I've used this on two client shoots already and the sound is great. Client's love it because the lav is almost invisible while the talent was walking around the set. Next time I need to mic more than one person, I'll probably buy another one - it's that good.
    Date published: 2017-12-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Used for interviews, etc. This thing is great and has paid for itself in just a few days of work that it DIDN'T screw up on. Wonderfully small, completely discreet. Not all the bumps and scratches of my other mics. Great!
