Any opinions on the Shelved versus Peak frequency ...

Any opinions on the Shelved versus Peak frequency response? Do you find this version works okay behind clothes? Most of what I do will be behind clothes, but not always a lot of clothes. I don't want to buy a mic for every situation. In your opinions is it better to record with shelved and add EQ to the high-end later (if needed) or to record peaked and pull back EQ if needed?
Asked by: Nathan
Countryman describes the difference as follows: "Shelved for normal lavalier use, peaked for use behind clothing." Based on what you wrote you may be better off getting the peaked - as "most" is behind clothes - and you can always EQ back when used in situations where it is not under clothing. It is easier to take out frequencies, than adding missing frequencies. I hope this helps

I am new to audio recording. I heard this requires phantom power. is phantom power the same for most audio recorders? Specifically, I have a Zoom H6. would all I need to do to make the Countryman lapel work is turn on Phantom Power? Or does it require another purchase to give it power?
Asked by: Tony
You are correct that it needs Phantom power. The H6 - and most other recorders that spot an XLR mic input - will provide Phantom power and no additional hardware will be required to power this mic.

question

I have a Sony UWP-D11/14 Bodycap Lav mic. Can I use this mic with my equipment??
Asked by: Fernando
It depends on the input termination you need for your UWP-D11/14. This particular microphone you would be ordering is a full sized XLR so without an adapter it would not work. If you want to order the EMW for your system, check the countryman website or and find the termination you need, then purchase that version. or you can use https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/608518-REG/Sony_EC_1_5BX_EC_1_5BX_3_pole_Locking_Mini_Plug.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/608518-REG/Sony_EC_1_5BX_EC_1_5BX_3_pole_Locking_Mini_Plug.html</a> this adapter also available at B and H and it will work.

question

Is this a stereo mic? My film clip using this mic is audible in only one side of headphones.
Asked by: Anonymous
I think the issue is that you are recording only to one channel (left or right), this is a setting in your camera or recording device. If its a single person, then you want both channels to be using the same mono audio track, if you have two people on the clip, then decide to make them both mono on the 2 channels or alternate the speakers between the two channels. Most likely, you just need to set the camera to record the single input on both channels or in your post editing software, select the audio channel and there should be an option to copy it or reference it for both the left and right channel,
