The Countryman E6i Directional Earset microphone provides high-quality voice pickup while rejecting surrounding noise, stage monitors, and feedback from nearby speakers. An ultra-miniature directional element is held close to the mouth by a thin boom and comfortable earpad. The flexible boom of the E6i holds up to repeated rebending by multiple performers. The entire assembly weighs less than one-tenth of an ounce and virtually disappears against the skin, so performers can forget it's there and audiences barely see it. Changeable caps let you select a cardioid pickup pattern for ease of placement, or a hypercardioid pattern for maximum isolation.
Countryman Earsets are the smallest, lightest, and least visible head-worn microphones. The comfortable earpad doesn't interfere with hairstyles, eyeglasses, wardrobe, headphones, or in-ear monitors. The tiny boom and mic element virtually disappear against the face.
The soft, highly flexible boom is easily shaped right on the performer's face. Available in multiple skin tone colors. Changeable protective caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. Versions are available for different speaking or singing styles, with up to 145 dB SPL capability.
Exceptional Sound Quality
Frequency response is better than 30 Hz to 15 kHz with smooth off-axis response and >100 dB dynamic range. Countryman Earsets sound like world-class, full size performance mics while freeing up performers hands and improving consistency.
Rugged and Reliable
The skin-colored, almost unbreakable boom can be bent and re-bent many times to fit different performers. The E6i is exceptionally resistant to makeup, sweat and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps. Caps and cable are field-replaceable without tools.
Countryman Directional Earsets reject 20 dB of off-axis sound, while easy adjustment keeps the mic very close to the mouth at all times. This reduces feedback in meeting rooms or houses of worship, and cuts monitor pickup on stage. The directional earset is ideal for concerts and other high-noise environments.
With other microphones a worn cable requires purchasing a completely new mic. An E6 quick-connect cable can be snapped on in seconds. Miniature 1 mm or 2 mm super-rugged cables are available for almost any wireless transmitter or phantom mic input providing 3V - 48V.
