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 its 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.
Offering the same value, comfort, and sound quality of our popular E6i Omni, our E6i Directional Earset is designed for even more gain before feedback in noisy spaces or near loudspeakers.
Our E6i Earset mics are practically invisible to live or broadcast audiences. They're incredibly comfortable for the wearer. They capture sources clearly with excellent rejection of ambient noise and feedback. And their unique snap-on cable extends the equipment life many times over. In addition, the snap-on cable makes the same earset compatible with virtually any wireless mic system, simply by switching cables instead of buying an entirely new mic!
We've mounted our tiniest mic capsule on an even tinier boom that is rugged, flexible, and incredibly lightweight. Silicon padding at the earpiece helps keep the boom comfortably in place, even with glasses or other head-worn accessories. We offer the widest range of boom and windscreen colors to match virtually any skin tone. The more-flexible boom on the E6i is very easy to adjust and perfect when one mic is shared among several people.
What's more, the protective caps change in seconds, provide moisture resistance, and allow you to select between hypercardioid (most popular) and cardioid patterns for on-location fexibility.
It's no surprise that Countryman's E6i Directional Earset is a top choice for any spoken word application with excessive background noise or potential for feedback.
The E6i Omni microphone is supplied with a snap-on cable with specified connector, windscreen, set of two protective caps (hypercardioid and cardioid), set of two collar clips (black and white), and carrying case.
Most Concealable Countryman Earsets are the smallest, lightest, and least visible head-worn microphones. The comfortable earpad doesnt interfere with hairstyles, eyeglasses, wardrobe, headphones, or in-ear monitors. The tiny boom and mic element virtually disappear against the face.Rugged and ReliableThe 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.VersatileThe soft, highly flexible boom is easily shaped right on the performers 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 QualityFrequency 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.Excellent IsolationCountryman 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.Replaceable cablesWith other microphones a worn cable requires purchasing a completely new mic. An E6 replacement cable easily replaces it in less than a minute. Quick-connect miniature 1 mm or 2 mm super rugged cables are available for almost any wireless transmitter or phantom mic input providing 3 - 48 V.
