The E6 Flex Omnidirectional Earset microphone combines the best of the classic E6 omni earset with the best of the omni E6i. The slim, springy earpad grips the ear securely like an E6, while the new flexible boom improves on the E6i for precise placement, extreme durability, and easy reshaping. As part of the Countryman E6 line, the E6 Flex features swapable reinforced cables, versatile skin tone options, extreme water resistance, rugged construction, and uncompromising sound. It weighs less than one-tenth ounce and virtually disappears against the skin, so performers forget theyíre even wearing a mic. Itís what makes an E6 an E6: the smallest, highest-performance earset in the world.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I choose the right E6 for my application?
The E6 Flex offers a versatile blend of the E6 and the E6i. With a springy, thin earpiece and a flexible
boom, the E6 Flex is faster to fit a new face than any other earset microphone availableóall without
compromising true invisibility and world class sound. The E6 Flex is marked with an orange band.
The classic E6 is a good choice when one person will wear the microphone. Because the boom
is stiffer, once it is adjusted to fit the userís face, it can be stored away, unpacked, and quickly
worn with a minimum of fuss.
The E6i is soft and highly-flexible with a larger silicone rubber ear piece. When multiple users share
a mic, the E6i is a great choice. The soft boom is fantastically durable and the extreme flexibility
makes changing users a breeze.
When should I choose a directional earset rather than an omni?
The omni earset rejects unwanted sound and feedback better than a lavalier almost any way you wear it, so itís
very user-friendly for new and experienced users alike. For situations where there are loud monitors, extreme
feedback or environmental noise, choose the Countryman Directional Earset (marked with a green band).
How do I choose the right color for my skin tone?
In most cases the boom of the E6 will be against the performerís skin. Tan is the most popular color choice,
because it works perfectly for average Caucasian skin tones as well as olive complexions. Light beige works
well in theatrical applications due to its slightly pink undertone, which is also appropriate for extremely fair
skin. Cocoa is the ideal choice for African American skin tones ranging from very light to chocolate, and
black is appropriate for extremely dark skin or for situations where you want the mic to be visible. When in
doubt, a darker option tends to blend better and draws less attention.
Which E6 sensitivity should I choose?
Making a microphone more sensitive to catch soft sounds means it will overload sooner for loud sounds.
Because sound pressure levels vary between individuals and applications, we provide three sensitivities for
the E6 Flex:
The highest gain (W5, no colored band) is for general speaking, such as presentations or sermons
The medium gain (W6, blue band) is for vocals and loud speaking, such as in theater
The most powerful vocals require the least gain mic (W7, purple band) with the highest overload level
Frequency Response : 20 Hz to 20 kHz Operating Current : 500 μA Operating Voltage : 1 to 2 Volts Power Supply Voltage :
+3V with 2.7 kOhm Load
