The Countryman E6 Directional Earset Microphone provides high-quality voice pickup while rejecting surrounding noise, stage monitors, or feedback from nearby speakers. An ultra-miniature electret condenser element is held close to the mouth by a thin boom and comfortable earclip for world-class vocal mic sound with far better isolation than an omnidirectional mic can provide. The entire assembly weighs less than one-tenth ounce and almost 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 E6 Omni, our E6 Directional Earset is designed for even more gain before feedback in noisy or loudspeaker-intensive spaces.
Our E6 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 wind, ambient noise, and feedback. And their unique quick-swap cable extends the equipment life many times over. In addition, the quick-swap 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 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, and each mic can easily be custom-fitted to any wearer. Once adjusted to fit your head, the tough springy boom keeps its shape when stored.
What's more, the protective caps swap in seconds and allow you to select between cardioid and hypercardioid patterns for on-location fexibility.
It's no surprise that Countryman's E6 Directional Earset is a top choice for any spoken word application with excessive background noise or potential for feedback.

Changeable protective caps let you change the directional pattern for maximum isolation under any condition. Sensitivities are available for different speaking or singing styles, with up to 140 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 but the performer has complete freedom.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.
