Countryman Associates has introduced the H6 Headset Microphone. Available in both omni and directional versions, the new Countryman H6 Headset features the same microphone capsule as the beloved Countryman E6 Omni Earset Mic. The new H6 provides transparent, natural sound pick-up with an extremely low profile capsule at just 0.1-inch (2.5mm) in diameter, roughly the size of a No. 2 pencil lead. The capsule is offered in three sensitivities (7 mV/Pa, 2 mV/Pa, and 0.7 mV/Pa) and with its high dynamic range and flat 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, the new H6 is perfect for a wide range of applications.
The H6’s slim, 1.2 mm cable offers a break-strength exceeding 44 lbs., an attribute that is certain to be appreciated by theatrical performers who must frequently change costumes. This interchangeable cable is also the interface to a myriad of wireless microphone systems. Switching among different wireless transmitter packs is as easy as swapping a cable. The new H6 and its various cables interface to nearly all wireless transmitters, digital recorders, or XLR mic inputs with phantom power.
Prices: $670 and $720 (omni and directional versions, respectively)
