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 peaked frequency response is well suited for compensating for high frequencies that are lost when mounted underneath clothing.

Unobtrusive Miniature Design

The square EMW lavalier is available in various colors that virtually render the entire microphone invisible against the skin,

Kevlar Cable

The attached cable is made of 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.

Countryman EMW Reviews

Great upgrade to the mics in our wireless rigs. Worth it.

The included kit mic in our Sony systems is good. This Countryman makes the system great. The mic itself is incredibly small. Comes with a well designed carrying case with many accessories. Countryman customer service is above average as well. (One of the mic clips was missing from our kit and they sent a replacement immediately after verifying our purchase from B&H.) Definitely worth the money.

Excellent quality

I love this lav mic - the sound is excellent, it has a very small footprint, and the included clips works perfectly. Having used it both for webinars and live talks over large sound systems I can speak to the fact that the sound is full and rich. When I present on a webinar I roll a little off at about 200Hz and it sounds fantastic. Great microphone! Great price!

I've always loved the Countryman EMW lav mics. They have a great response, and reject a lot of the rustling clothing sounds used with the Rycote Undercover systems. I've used these mics in the field for years shooting outdoor television programs (some of the top in the nation). I will say that they get very rough treatment in the field, and tend to hold up well. However, once in a while a mic will go bad due to the mic cable having problems at the 1/8 connector, but as rough as they're treated in some situations, that's entirely understandable. I like that they are mostly weather proof, that's a big thing with me. I've shot in many saltwater and freshwater environments, and have never had a mic fail due to moisture/water. I give these mics a 2 thumbs up.

The best lavalier mic I've ever used or heard.

Perfect for filmmaking, interviews, vlogging or whatever. I've used a lot of mics of all kinds over the years as a recording engineer, producer and filmmaker and in my opinion Countryman makes the best lav mics on the market.

love these

I have been using Countryman Mike's for over 20 years. This mike replaces the old one...it's small and blend with with clothes. Excellent company

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.
