The beige H6 Directional Headset with Detachable Cable and TA4F Connector for Shure or Beyerdynamic Wireless Transmitters from Countryman is a low-profile headset microphone that combines the transparent sounding E6 Earset with a comfortable, lightweight, and adjustable headframe. Weighing less than one-tenth ounce, it can be used for capturing audio and rejecting unwanted sound, feedback, or surrounding noise from stage monitors or nearby speakers in houses of worship, theater, and outdoor vocal and speech applications.

The low-profile, directional H6 Headset virtually disappears against the skin, so performers forget they're wearing a mic. Three sensitivity options cover general speaking to extremely powerful vocals, and four color options allow you to match the H6 to your skin tone for minimum visibility. The H6 features a sealed connector with moisture resistance, a slim cable, and protective caps to adjust the frequency response or pattern between cardioid and hypercardioid for maximum isolation and gain before feedback.

In addition, the H6 Headset is also available as a water- and wind-resistant omnidirectional microphone. This directional H6 Headset's cable terminates to a TA4F connector for direct connection to a Shure AXT100+, BLX1, FP1, GLXD1, PG1, PGX1, PGXD1, QLXD1, SLX1, UC1, ULX1, ULXD1, UR1, UR1M, or a Beyerdynamic TG 100 (gray switch), or TG 1000 (gray switch) wireless bodypack transmitter.

Sweat-Proof Connector
The H6 Headset detaches from the cable with a rugged, tightly-sealed snap connection.
Robust Design
Stainless steel tubing and wire provide maximal durability in a sleek design.
Adjustable Earloops
Both earloops slide in and out to achieve a comfortable and secure fit on the head.
Adjustable Length
The boom slides independently of the earloops to place the mic right at the mouth.
Subminiature Capsule
The tiny 0.1" diameter capsule virtually disappears when worn and delivers natural audio quality. The directional version provides warmth and extreme isolation, while the omni version has a natural response with a minimum of wind or handling noise.
Replaceable Cables
An H6 snap-on 1.2mm diameter replacement cable installs in seconds. It provides a tight seal against moisture, is rugged, and available for almost any wireless transmitter or for XLR inputs with phantom power.
Sensitivity
For speaking and vocals.

question

Band colors for countryman headset?
Asked by: Anonymous
Countryman designates the sensitivities of the mics in 2 ways, a letter/number combination, and associated band color. They are as follows, W5 = no colored band is for general speaking. W6 = blue band is for very loud speaking, or vocal performance, and W7 = purple band with headroom for the most powerful vocal performance.
