Sanken COS-11D Overview

The black Sanken COS-11D Omni Lavalier Microphone with Normal Sensitivity and Locking 3.5mm Connector for Sony Transmitters is a subminiature lav microphone 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 tiny 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 Sony transmitters. A metal windscreen, holder clip, rubber mount, and plastic case are included.

Locking 3.5mm Connector

Compatible Wireless Transmitters

  • Sony: Works with Sony bodypack transmitters equipped with a locking 3.5mm connector, including the UWP-D and DWZ 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 Sony compatibility.

Broadcast-Quality Sound and Dependable Performance

Subminiature Mic with a Big Sound

The camera-ready COS11-D 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 and Vocals

This version of the mic features a normal sensitivity setting for standard speech 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.

I bought this one. I have a question. If i connect sony transmitter this without phantom power, is it operating?
Asked by: lee
The COS-11D requires 3 to 10V of plug-in power, not phantom power. Phantom power is higher voltage of 12 to 48V. The Sony transmitter will supply the proper amount of plug-in power needed for the COS-11D.

No, the Sony wiring of this mic is not compatible with the RodeLink. Here's a Sennheiser wired version of the COS-11D that would be compatible B&amp;H # SAC11WNSETRB.

Can this be used with cellphones? like, can I connect it to the Note 9 for example and use it and microphone for vlogging?
Asked by: Sherif
This, I do not know but I highly doubt it. I say this because I tried using this on my friend's Sennheiser kit and it would not work; seems that this particular mic is designed for Sony UWP and that's it. Kinda disappointing, since it cost so much.

No, Im sorry let me re-ask my question - I already have a UWP system and want to up grade to a Sony UTX-B40 Wireless Bodypack Transmitter. For one, the UTX series has a dual receiver meaning they can take in 2 frequencies, etc, UWPs need individual receivers for each transmitter, but the UTS series too, use TRS mic inputs, just like the UWP series, which can take the Sanken Cos-11 lavs. What would happen if I connected the TRS connector from the Cos-11D into a Sony UTX-B40 Wireless Bodypack Transmitter? Is the Cos11D exclusively for UWP series TRS connectors? (and Sennheisers?
Asked by: James
This particular mic will work with the UTX-B40 transmitter. It will not work with Sennheiser.
