Protective Cap for B6 Lavalier Microphone
B6 Protective Caps shield the B6 Lavalier from dirt and dust, making it extremely water-resistant. Flat caps do not change the frequency response; Bright and Very Bright caps provide additional sibilance for voice intelligibility.
The B6 lavalier should always be used with a protective cap in place to keep sweat, makeup and other foreign material out of the microphone. The three omni caps each have a different high frequency response characteristic that controls the amount of "crispness" or "sibilance" (response at 15 kHz).
The omni ships with the +4 dB protective cap fitted to the mic. We have found that this cap's frequency response meets the needs of the majority of users, providing a slightly increased response in the 15 kHz range. This will boost the perceived amount of "presence" in your sound, while leaving the lower frequencies unchanged. If you experience problems with high-frequency feedback, you should switch to the 0 dB cap.
Additional protective caps may be purchased individually; please specify color and frequency response characteristic.
