Sanken COS-11D Overview

The black Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity and 3.5mm Locking Sennheiser Connector is a subminiature lav mic designed to deliver clear, full-bodied sound and reliable performance, making it a popular choice among industry professionals in broadcast, TV, theater, film, videography, and more. 

Engineered to meet the standards of modern digital wireless microphone systems, the COS-11D is RF shielded to eliminate interference issues and ensure a pristine audio signal. The microphone capsule features a rectangular design that sits vertically, increasing the surface area and allowing this little mic to offer a rich, full sound that outperforms many larger models.

The mic's 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response rolls off extreme low end and provides accurate, transparent audio reproduction with a small presence boost in the 6 kHz area for crisp, intelligible speech. With a forgiving omnidirectional polar pattern that picks up sound in a 360° pattern, levels stay consistent—even when the subject turns away from the mic.

A water-resistant mesh screen protects against humidity, perspiration, makeup, bad weather, and other potential on-location issues, while the durable cable is also moisture resistant and built to stay soft and pliable, even after extended use. This version of the COS-11D terminates in a locking 3.5mm connector and is wired for use with Sennheiser transmitters. A metal windscreen, holder clip, rubber mount, and plastic case are included.

Locking 3.5mm Connector
Compatible Wireless Transmitters
  • Sennheiser: Works with Sennheiser bodypack transmitters equipped with a locking 3.5mm connector, including the Evolution (ew), XSW-D, and SpeechLine (SL) Series
  • Also works with many third-party wireless transmitters and portable audio recorders that are equipped to supply 3 to 10 VDC through a locking 3.5mm connector wired for Sennheiser compatibility.
Broadcast-Quality Sound and Dependable Performance
Subminiature Mic with a Big Sound
The camera-ready COS-11D features a subminiature capsule that enables the microphone to be inconspicuous and easily disguised in clothing or costumes. The unique vertical diaphragm design offers a clear and natural sound optimized for the human voice.
Normal Headroom for Standard Speech
This version of the mic features a normal sensitivity setting for standard speech at levels up to 123 dB SPL.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The forgiving omnidirectional polar pattern picks up sound from all around the mic and provides a consistent frequency response, even for off-axis sound. This helps to supply clear, intelligible speech and vocals, even when the talent isn't speaking directly toward the microphone.
Tough, Water-Resistant Construction for Indoor/Outdoor Locations
The water-resistant front mesh screen provides reliable protection from perspiration and moisture, making the mic a solid performer in all kinds of weather. The rugged cable is also built to resist moisture and handling noise and stay pliable, even after repeated uses.

Is there an option to connect it to a XLR input camcorder? Also will it work with my phone's 3.5mm headphone port?
Asked by: Jared
A Rode VXLR+ 3.5mm TRS Female to XLR Male Adapter with Phantom Power Converter, BH #ROVXLR, will allow you to plug this mic into a camera with XLR input, which would be able to provide 48 volt phantom power to the mic. To connect this to a smartphone, you would adapt the end to TRRS with a Rode SC4 3.5mm TRS Female to 3.5mm Right-Angle TRRS Male Adapter Cable for Smartphones, BH #ROSC4. The smartphone will power the mic in this case.

Are these locking 3.5mm / ⅛in connections compatible with the Saramonic uwmic9? The wireless receiver has a bit of a lip around the outlet…
Asked by: J Perry
Saramonic seems like copy of Sony system so most probably will not work because wiring is not the same. It can be expensive gamble.

Does anyone have experience using the Sanken COS-11D with 3.5mm Locking Sennheiser Connector with the Rode VXLR Pro adapter?
Asked by: Tanya
The Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity & 3.5mm Locking Sennheiser Connector can run off of 3 to 10 V, and the Rode VXLR Pro provides 4 V, so the two would be compatible.

Does this work and lock with the Tascam DR-10L?
Asked by: Shiggy
The Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity & 3.5mm Locking Sennheiser Connector is not advised for use with the Tascam DR-10L, as it requires 3V of plugin power at a minimum and the DR-10L can only provide 2V.

Do Sanken COS-11D for Sennheiser Evo work with ...

Do Sanken COS-11D for Sennheiser Evo work with other Wireless Transmitters like SONY, Lectrosonics etc.?
Asked by: Manoj
The 3.5mm connector for Sennheiser will not work with SONY or Lectrosonics- the connector wiring is different for these, so the connector would need to be re-wired to work.
