Countryman EMW overview

  • 1Description

The Countryman EMW Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone is designed to reproduce vocals, musical instruments and ambient audio sources with pristine detail and minimal handling noise. The capsule is highly resistant to moisture making it a suitable solution for outdoor use, placement against skin, etc.

Clear audio reproduction with low rubbing and handling noise is a result of the EMW's omnidirectional polar pattern. The shelved frequency response features a smooth +6 dB boost between 2 kHz and 15 kHz. This is the standard response for lavaliers worn outside clothing (lapels, jackets, etc).

A wide variety of colors and connections are available, this version is cocoa and features a 3-pin XLR connection.

Shelved Frequency Response
The EMW is available in three frequency response types and this version features a shelved frequency response that compensates for reflections lost when mounted outside clothing and fabric. The shelved response is standard for lavalier microphones worn on lapels, jackets, etc.
Unobtrusive Miniature Design
The square EMW lavalier is available in various colors that virtually render the entire microphone invisible against the skin. For more information on which color ear-set suits you best, refer to the Countryman support page.
Kevlar Cable
The attached cable is made of a durable, break-resistant Kevlar for rigorous use without shorts and wear.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The EMW is credited with providing pristine audio with minimal handling and rubbing noise, due to its omnidirectional polar pattern.
Moisture Resistant
This square, moisture resistant capsule is ideal for use in humid conditions, on skin, outdoors, etc.

    Countryman EMW reviews

    EMW Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone with Shelved Frequency Response and 3-Pin XLR Connector (Cocoa) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality yet tiny mic at a great price I bought 2 of these and two Tascam DR-40s from B&H. I use them for interviews and they work great. Extremely high quality sound. I run XLR cables from them and monitor the sound during the shoot. I just did an interview of a professional singer. He sang some a few times during the interview- beautiful sound. Does a great job with singing. Couldn't be happier! I made belt clips for the DR-40s so I can use them on two people walking around. Otherwise for an interview I only need one for two people of course. Seems to me to be the easiest, least expensive way to assure you get high quality sound with your video (as opposed to wireless) when a lav mic can be used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SOUND I did a lot of research before purchasing and this wired lav mic was my final selection and I am extremely pleased with the quality of this wonderful product. I did have a question and sent an e-mail to Countryman; they never replied. So, I sent the same question to B & H and in expected fashion, they responded within one working day. Thanks, as usual, B & H !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Great Price I'm using this mic strictly for interviewing on commercial and corporate productions. It is well suited for vocal recording as it has the proper pattern, sensitivity and shelved frequency response. It is well made durable. As with all lapel microphones, especially when hiding them, you have to watch out for clothing russell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic for the pro-am and Tascam DR-4 This is a great mic for the prosumer. The cable is only six feet long, so I purchased a high quality extender. I have this hooked into my DR-40. For doing interviews semi-pro documentary type films, this is a great value. I was hesitant on spending so much, looking at the AT -355 instead. Glad I went with this mic, its worth spending the extra money so I can grow with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size matters This is small and almost invisible for video shoots. It comes with both a white and black mic clip to help hide it. The white could also be painted with easily removable water based acrylic to match an outfit for an important shoot. Sound is awesome too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Noise and Versatile Even though this one is Shelved, I knew I would be putting it under a shirt. I figured with a little EQ, it would sound fine. It did. When I first used it indoors, it sounded fuzzy. My voice emphasizes 100Hz to 900 Hz frequencies. Don't ask my why, it just does. Anyway, that was what contributed to the fuzziness. So, I end up attenuating those freqencies -06dB and it evens out nicely. The curious thing is, that the same mic, mounted in the exact same place, sounds perfectly fine outdoors, without any need to EQ it at all. I like that it can take the rigors of moisture, and even a bit of mishandling (thanks to the kevlar coated lead). I am concerned about inadvertently causoing damage to the face of it, so I store it face down in the viper clip. This way, no chance of damaging the capsule when I handle it. I also like that it's very small, and did I mention the low noise? And the nice sound it creates? I did a lot of research before selecting this mic. You could easily spend twice the amount for a more popular mic, but this isn't high school. Nevertheless, after you do your homework you'll be glad you selected this mic too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mic performs as advertised This omni lavalier microphone is relatively inexpensive and performs well for recording interviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic mic for interviews. I use this mic when filming interviews and it sounds fantastic. Lots of clean headroom for people with loud voices. It also has a low noise floor for adding clean gain to softer voices. Sounds very full without being boomy - and present without being brittle. Comes in a nice case and includes accessories.
