Countryman's new detachable connectors for the B6 omnidirectional lavalier microphone.

Countryman Associates announces the availability of an assortment of detachable connectors for the company’s B6 omnidirectional lavalier microphone.

The new detachable connectors address the company’s single most common request: to enable the B6 to quickly and easily switch between different brands of transmitters, recorders, and other audio equipment.

The connectors span more than 400 models of equipment from AKG, Shure, Sennheiser, Lectrosonics, Sony, Wisycom, and many additional equipment manufacturers. The connector types include 3.5 mm, Hirose, TA3F, TA4F/Tiny QG, TA5F, LEMO, and XLR (for use with Phantom powered equipment such as digital recorders and mixing consoles).

Countryman’s engineering team completely reviewed and revised their circuits to ensure maximum B6 microphone performance with each system. Each connector is designed to resist radio frequency interference and the mechanical elements are built tough to survive the rigors of professional use.

Chris Countryman, president of Countryman Associates, comments on the company’s new B6 detachable connectors, “Due to its unusually small form factor, our B6 omnidirectional lavalier has proven to be incredibly versatile. Because of its popularity, we regularly receive requests to make the B6 better able to interface with a wide range of equipment. Now, sound engineers and traveling presenters can take a selection of connectors on the road and know they have everything required to interface the microphone to all types of equipment and tackle any challenge they may encounter. I’m confident these connectors will open the doors to a myriad of new opportunities for our B6 users.”

The new Countryman detachable connectors for the B6 omnidirectional lavalier microphone are available now and are sold individually (MSRP $100).
