Miniature Moisture Resistant Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone

Overview

Our B3 is essential to any well-stocked pro audio toolkit: it captures the highest-quality audio available in a lavalier mic, with field-selectable HF response caps and extremely low handling noise.

Whether you need a tie-clip lavalier for an interview, a hair-hidden mic for drama, a water-resistant mic for water sports or hurricane reporting, or simply a small mic to hide in a prop flower vase, you'll never run out of applications for Countryman's B3 lavalier.

And that's exactly why we made the B3 so rugged. The cable is protected from stretching by a rugged Kevlar core, and the mic's protective caps are extremely resistant to water, sweat, and makeup.

You'd never expect such a mic to be so affordable, making the B3 one of the highest-value audio investments in your kit.

Unobtrusive
Looks great when you want to see it, virtually disappears when you don't. The B3 is easily hidden in hair or on costumes, with five colors to match clothing, hair, and skin tones. Use a felt tip marker to color the white caps for near-perfect concealability. Never suffer the hassle and degraded sound quality of under-clothing miking again.

Versatile
Changeable protective caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. Versions available for different speaking or singing styles, with up to 150 dB SPL capability.

Rugged and Reliable
The B3 is exceptionally resistant to makeup, sweat and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps and is well-suited to use in hair or on the body. The protective caps are easily removed for cleaning or replacement when clogged with makeup. The Kevlar-reinforced cable gives it world-class survivability.

Exceptional Sound Quality
The B3 provides the highest-quality audio available in a lavalier mic. Low distortion at SPL up to 150 dB on 48 V Phantom Power. The Kevlar cable and ultra-thin diaphragm combine to set a new standard for low handling noise. Excellent rejection of surrounding noise.
