Point Source Audio Launches “Unsinkable” Earworn Microphone
+- Print Email Share RSS RSS

Point Source Audio has introduced the CO-5w, a new “unsinkable” waterproof earworn microphone outfitted with a special water-protected mic element.

The CO-5w offers omnidirectional polar pattern that allows a 360-degree pick-up of sound, providing a natural blend of voice and ambience.

The design of the CO-5w also lends itself to reduced speech produced “popping sounds” and voice overloads in close mic applications.

“We’re super excited about our ‘unsinkable’ feature,” says Yvonne Ho, vice president of marketing at Point Source Audio. “Of course, we don’t recommend users drowning their wireless packs in water, but now they have a microphone shielded against humidity and water so it can be used almost anywhere.”

The CO-5w waterproof earworn microphone is shipping now, available at pro sound resellers and system integration contractors.

The single-ear version retails for $335 MSRP, and the dual-ear version retails for $425. It is offered in a variety of terminations designed to work with all the most common wireless systems. Standard offerings are immediately available and special orders for custom wiring are welcomed as well.
