Countryman B3 overview

  • 1Description

The beige B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with 3.5mm Locking Connector for Sennheiser 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 capsule is resistant to moisture, 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. The B3'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, 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 150 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 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.

    Countryman B3 reviews

    B3 Omni Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with 3.5mm Locking Connector for Sennheiser Wireless Transmitters (Beige) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely little lav I'm a professional video guy but not a professional audio guy. I was having issues trying to hide big ole mics that probably shouldn't be hidden (due to size and causing clothing noise because of that). A professional audio friend of mine recommended this mic and I'm so happy that I bought it. Easy to hide, beautiful sound. I couldn't be happier. I bought this to use with my Sennheiser G3 wireless system. I would buy this mic again without a second thought.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Lav workhorse for Live performance Let's be honest: This is not going to compare to a $+ lav mic. But if you put it through the grueling grind of theatrical performances, it's a solid performer for ensemble. I work with MS and HS students and using a -$ mic for great sound that is durable is optimal. Sturdy build.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have work around for the Sennheiser G3 series This makes all our problems with the Sennheiser G3 series go away. The mic head was always too big originally so we got this setup and now we have hardly any issues with concealment, noise rubbing, and quality. I think this is a must have for the G3 series lav mic. I'd also recommend getting some rechargeable batteries for the G3 series so you won't waste away money. As of now, we haven't had any problems that I feel anyone should worry about. We are much happier with this setup then before.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the market Lavalier microphones are one of the most fragile but important components to a wireless systems, Countryman brings durability, packaging and beautiful sound to your picture. Excellent vocal response for speech and a relatively high SPL and adjustable caps for frequency response. I have yet to come by a better lavaliere product to use on location when hiding microphones on actors. Only tip would to be invest in the specialized windscreen caps made for the B3. It is a smaller head then say a Sennheisher/Pearstone ME3 type microphone but the screen CAN be taped on in a pinch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Mic! I bought the B3 as a replacement for my sennheiser ME-2 stock mic, because I do a lot of filming in noisy office environments with air conditioning and ventilation. I am so blown away at how well the B3 performs. It reduced the background noise significantly. In fact I bought a 2nd unit. So worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality reproduction Where to start? Size: The B3 is small enough to be inconspicuous as a lapel mic, and can be hidden in a tie knot or hair. Sound: silky, picks up voices wonderfully without dropping all the room noise. Reliability: the cord is well built, shrouded in a material slick enough to minimize noise. The only challenge I've had has been popping the cap off the top to use one of the two alternates. All in all, it's manufactured, engineered and packaged wonderfully.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good upgrade I bought these as an upgrade from the generic Sennheiser lavs. Much improved sound quality. They are not fantastic in any way, but a good upgrade and well worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Improvment over Kit G3 Mic I got this mic to complement my Senheiser G3 Kit I use mostly as backup or when doing interviews without a soundperson. This mic is a massive improvement over the included lav in my Senheiser G3 kit. The far tighter low end and clarity even when hidden under clothing with the optional high frequency caps. I also notice considerable improvement in handling noise which is always an important consideration with lav's.
