Countryman Associates E6i Directional Earset

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. Frequently Asked Questions:

When should I choose a directional Earset?

Countryman Earsets offer both omni and directional versions, giving the user some exceptional advantages. 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. Itís ideal for anyone working with a PA system covering a room without stage monitors. For situations where there are loud monitors, extreme feedback, or environmental noise, choose the Countryman Directional Earset (marked with a green band). Itís much smaller and less obtrusive compared to anything else on the market. For more information on directional earsets, see your dealer or download a copy from our web site. Or simply call us if you have a question.

What is the difference between the E6 and the E6i?

We recommend the classic E6 when just one person wears the microphone. Because it is stiffer and holds its shape well, it can be adjusted to fit the userís face, stored away, and quickly unpacked and worn with a minimum of fuss.

The E6i adds a soft, highly-flexible boom and 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.

How do I choose the right color for my skin tone?

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, choose the darker option. Thatís because a mic thatís too light can resemble a scar or blemish, while a mic thatís slightly darker than the background tends to blend much better and draws less attention.

Which 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 with three overload or clipping characteristics.
  • The most sensitive (W5, no band) is for general speaking, such as presentations or sermons
  • The middle sensitivity (W6, blue band) is for vocals and loud speaking, such as in theater
  • The most powerful vocals require the least sensitive mic (W7, purple band) with the highest overload sound level
