Countryman B6 overview

  • 1Description

The black B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with Hardwired 3-Pin XLR Connector 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.

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, or taped to a performer's face. Never suffer the hassle and degraded sound quality of under-clothing miking again.
Rugged and Reliable
The B6 is exceptionally resistant to makeup, sweat, and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps, and is well-suited to use in the hair or on the body. The protective caps are easily removed for cleaning or replacement, and the aramid-reinforced cable gives it durability.
Refined Sound Quality
The B6 provides professional-quality audio with low distortion at SPL up to 140 dB on 48V phantom power. The aramid cable and ultra-thin diaphragm combine to deliver very low handling noise. The tiny size and natural sound pickup make the B6 easy to position for ambient noise and feedback rejection.
Versatile
Swappable, protective caps allow you to shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. The hardwired XLR connector allows you to interface with other preamps, amplifiers, mixers, and other equipment.
Sensitivity
Standard, for most uses.

    Countryman B6 reviews

    B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Mic, Standard Sens, with Hardwired 3-Pin XLR Connector (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic, great price I'm an independent video producer, and this mic has been a terrific addition to my kit. It's incredibly easy to hide and has great quality sound. I use it with my Zoom (but make sure Phantom Power is on, since the mic doesn't come with it's own power source!), and it's a great set-up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tool to get the job done Didn't take long listening to my audio track to realize that I got exactly what I needed in my interview and it sounded exactly like I wanted it to when I was shopping for a lav mic. The results speak for themselves and they don't disappoint.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small and easy to use We were surprised at how tiny the mic is. It's very good sound quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product! As a keyboard accompanist and supporting vocalist, I found it impossible to play my best when glued to a boom mic. I tried wireless but found it clumsy and the sound quality unreliable. Then I found this mic online. Yes, I have to remember not to stand up and walk away when it's clipped on, but it's well worth that effort. This wired lavalier has all the sound quality of a wired handheld and no wireless worries.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but excellent form factor I use it for location recording for my films. While the white version suited the general clothing for the specific project, I could generally hide it very efficiently in all scenarios. In my setup with Oade Marantz PMD661 super, this microphone is slightly noisier than I would have liked.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frexible!! Maybe world's smallest laverier microphone. This mic has 24 dbA of noise floor, but I think that it is acceptable range in hearing and much higher flexibility than that.
