Countryman Associates Inc., a producer of high-quality, miniature microphones, introduces the H6 Headset Microphone for broadcast use and more.
Available in both omni and directional versions, the H6 Headset provides transparent, natural sound pick-up with an extremely low profile microphone capsule, Countryman says. The microphone’s capsule is the same capsule on Countryman’s E6 Omni Earset Microphone, which has been an industry favorite, the company says.
At just 0.1 inch in diameter, the H6 Headset capsule is offered in three sensitivities (7 mV/Pa, 2 mV/Pa, and 0.7 mV/Pa), Countryman says. In addition, the H6 Headset’s high dynamic range and its flat 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency responses enable it available for “a wide range of applications,” the firm says.
As anyone who has worn a headset microphone will attest, a secure, comfortable fit that is not distracting is crucial for a presentation, Countryman says. To facilitate the H6 Headset remaining secure, a lightweight and adjustable head frame is used, the company says.
“The new H6 delivers exceptional audio quality, rugged build quality, superior fit for comfortable, distraction-free performance, and the ability to interface with a wide range of wireless equipment,” says Chris Countryman, president of Countryman Associates. The microphone is available in both omni and directional versions, with the directional version providing a tight polar pattern for excellent isolation from ambient noise and feedback, he added.
