The black B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Mic, Very Low 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

Very low, mic near user's mouth

No it may not work correctly. You need the ones that are wired with a 3.5mm Locking connector for Sony and the ones that the catalog number ends with SN See item# COB6W4BSN

question

Cananyone tell me how this performs if you have two speakers close to each other? Is there significant mic bleed between two mics in close proximity (like guest/host interview?) And if used over a PA or speaker system, does the PA bleed into the Mic? Thanks!
Asked by: Brian
Two people can be sitting or standing next to each other and there will be minimal bleed. These mics are omnidirectional, but are finely tuned to supress feedback, if P.A. speakers are placed in front of the talent, facing away. I would recommend this pick-up pattern to allow subjects to move their heads back and forth, without volume fluctuating.

Manufacturers wire their mics and packs differently. Call Countryman tech support. They have a human that answers the phone and knows more about their mics than anyone you will find on this forum.

question

is it possible to connect this to a Tascam DR-05 recorder with an xlr to 3.5mmm jack adapter I want to use it in my pocket as a dual system unit. The B6 doesnt say it need phantom but it doesnt take a battery if there is a way for this to work list what I need please .. thanks.. also I have this version already as well as the Tascam?
Asked by: Steve
The Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone with 3-Pin XLR Hardwired Connection will not work into the Tascam Dr-05 with a XLR to 3.5mm adapter. The mic requires phantom power to operate. As an alternative, Countryman makes the EMW lavalier wired for Digital recorders; B&H# COMEMWSFF05B.
