Countryman E6I Overview

The Countryman E6i Omnidirectional Microphone is a miniature earset microphone for virtually invisible operation in stage performances, trade shows, houses-of-worship, auctions, lectures and much more.

The omnidirectional version is most common in applications where feedback issues are not very likely. The microphone can be worn without a windscreen as the omnidirectional capsule provides excellent wind noise rejection.

The E6i is set apart from the original E6 with its softer flexible boom and silicon ear-pads. The flexible boom provides ease of boom adjustability to accommodate multi-user applications.

A wide variety of colors and connections are available for use with various wireless transmitters. This version is beige and features a Switchcraft TA5-Female connector for Lectrosonics transmitters.

Miniature Unobtrusive Design

A miniature omnidirectional capsule is mounted to a low-profile, flexible frame with silicon ear pads. This lightweight, unobtrusive design is available in various colors that virtually render the entire microphone invisible against the skin.

Removable Cable

The included 1mm Diameter Cable detaches from the actual headset, making it completely replaceable in the event of a short or break. The replaceable cable design makes upgrading wireless microphone systems easy, as they are available in a wide selection of connections to accommodate various wireless transmitters.

Omnidirectional Polar Pattern

The omnidirectional polar pattern is most effective in minimizing wind noise, plosives (popping) and handling noise. The flexible boom provides a custom fit for multiple users and close microphone positioning while minimizing off-axis noise. The E6i is also available in a cardioid version for maximum off-axis noise rejection in environments with high feedback and noise.

Sensitivity Optimized for General Speech

This E6i sensitivity response is optimized to accurately capture general speech without noise and distortion.

Countryman E6I Reviews

Can you hear me now?

By Marvin

I previously bought another brand's earset because it saved me a little bit of cash and got great reviews. It was never truly comfortable, always digging in to the top of my ear, no matter much I readjusted the fit. And then the cord malfunctioned. I plugged in a second cord and it worked again but the second cord's plug is frozen and it couldn't be replaced when it inevitably broke. So I decided to go for the Countryman and see if there was any difference. Huge difference! It's so comfortable I don't feel that I'm even wearing it. Sounds great right out of the box. It didn't need any audio adjustments and now I'm a happy camper. It's always been my thing to get the best quality. In the long run it always pays off. I should've listen to my self and go on with the Countryman from the get go. I have absolutely no regrets regarding this is new ear set, other than the money I wasted.

These mics are great for musician/singers that need freedom to see music or the instrument while singing simultaneously. They take adjustment to your ear and should not be shared to preserve their life. They can cause slight discomfort on the back of the eat due to a pressure point caused by the rigid flexible junction if not adjusted just right. For the size of microphone, the quality is exceptional, and the latest generation has a bigger coax cable that feeds the receiver which should be much more durable. For pure singer voice quality, my handhelds have better quality.

E6 head mic is wonderful sounding mic for speech and singing. Much better than a traditional lav.(unless you do not want to see anything, then a lav dressed into the hairline is best. It can make a sound system in a bad environment sound pretty good. I use them mated to Sennheiser wireless system on our pastors. In my early career as a Sound Designer, I used them exclusively on theater productions. I also like that if the cable goes bad you can replace at the ear mic. This opinion is based on ROI. I do like the DPA's, but for the money go Countryman.

Best mic

no more popping from this bad boy. Our privies mics had some serious issues and its nice to be able to now walk around stage without hearing every step crackle on the mic.

This was an excellent purchase

This boom mic was a perfect choice for the fundraiser we conducted in a hotel ballroom. The fidelity of the mic was excellent as we pumped voice through the hotels house system. We paired it with a Sennheiser EW 172 G3-A1 receiver. The mic was comfortable, crisp and clear and had no background noise. Definitely worth the price.

I loved it, until it broke

This unit was everything I wanted-- comfortable, invisible (almost), good sound no matter how I turned my head (I only used it for spoken word). But 13 months after I bought it, only used a dozen times, the tip broke and the sound went down by about 90% (while I was using it). Granted, my sound equipment takes a lot of abuse, in the environment in which I use it, but my other headset is over a decade old with way more use/year. I am hoping this very expensive headset can be repaired, otherwise, it will be the worst investment ever.

More durable

Our new Countryman sounds great, just like the others we've used before. The 2mm cable is more robust and the flexible earpiece stays in position better.

I am familiar with this product as a sound technician at our church, and the facility manager at a conference center. Countryman has a great product... sound quality is great and works well on our Shure wireless system.

Yes it will work. It is a 1/8 locking connector wired for Sennheiser systems. Sennheiser and Rode use the same pin configuration.
