    Countryman Isomax reviews

    Isomax Cardioid Headset Microphone for Shure Wireless Transmitters (Switchcraft TA4F Connector, Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best headset for live singing vocals for price bar none!! I ordered about every headset under $ from @ for my young daughter who sings professionally with exception of this mic which I ordered from B&H. After trying all of them, this Mic blew them all away in sound as well as head fit. Don't waste your time trying all the others out, just buy this and you won't regret it.Also, I called Countryman and spoke with their technical department about W5 in their model number. Don't let the W5 in the model number make you think this Mic is only for speaking. Even though Countryman specs W5 as a speaking Mic on other Mics they manufacture, the W5 in this model number has nothing to do with that spec and they assured me that this mic is not only for speaking but for live performance singing. Also, many Stars use this as their go-to mic for the same reasons I chose it. Google Isomax Dolly Parton and read that article. Thanks to Dolly I knew to buy the cardioid version of this mic instead of the hypercardioid which Dolly tried and sent back electing to go with the cardioid instead. Also, we originally ordered the beige, but returned it for the black. Why? Beige although designed to blend in with the skin and make the mic less noticeable, actually works opposite as intended because people look closer because it is an unusual color and therefore more noticeable. My opinion stick with the black and you won't be disappointed. Can't say enough good things about this mic and B&H service....they're great and continue to set the standard on customer service!!!!After much searching I just ordered this to go with my Isomax headset mic:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/754770-REG/Tascam_TA_1VP_Vocal_Processor_Antares_Auto.htmlWhy B&H is half the price on this unit than everyone else, I don't know! All I know is with a headset you WILL NEED a compressor, especially if you're a singer, because there is no such thing as mic control, it's always there in front of your face and a compressor adjusts the volume automatically as you get louder so you don't blow the audience away. Also, Gate is important to take out your breathing sound while you're not singing or talking. With this Tascam unit you not only get compression and gate you get a lot of very cool effects which are only found on units costing hundreds if not thousands more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ISOMAX We have had an older version of this headset for a long time. So when looking for a new one we wanted to go with a Countryman again. Straight out of the box this sounded just as we expected. If you are in need of a pro headset for a singer type...they are bulletproof.
