    GREAT microphone

    This mic really is the industry standard for headset mics. Not only is it's low profile perfect for on camera, but it also sounds great. One church I worked for use to buy the E6 mic and mount it to a DPA headband because they liked the sound of the E6 over the much higher priced DPA headset mic.
    This mic also stays on the ear MUCH more comfortably that any of the less expensive competitors. The OVER the ear fit allows for great stability with no tape to hold it in place like other mics. Overall, GREAT buy! Used them in multiple churchs and as a freelancer with 2 corporate A/V companies in Orlando, FL (convention heaven)

    Nothing But Trouble

    We've had nothing but issues with this mic. We originally thought,"hey, these other 'knock-off' mics don't sound that good, let's get the best and get a Countryman." So we sprung for a $460+ E6.

    Within months we were having issues with distortion and poor sound quality. I thought maybe our speaker got too excited and hollered a little too loud and possibly overloaded the capsule. Note, we had it placed in proximity to the mouth as suggested by the manufacturer's instructions. I sent it in and Sweetwater sent it through to Countryman. Countryman claimed that we operated it without the "protective" capsule cover, however, we never operated the mic without the "directional hyper-cardioid" capsule. They said the earpiece had to be replaced for $175.

    We got it back and it worked great for a few more months. Then, out of the blue, we started getting loud pops, clicks, and crackling from the mic. It was unusable...again. This time, the issue seems to be emanating from the connection between the earpiece and the cable. We've tried re-seating the connection, tried taping the connection for strain-relief, and even told the speaker to reduce head movement. None of this worked. So now the mic is being sent in for repair...again.

    Sweetwater has provided exceptional customer service throughout all of this. However, I will never buy another Countryman headset mic again. I will also look elsewhere for direct boxes. Countryman has proven to me that they overcharge for a questionable quality product and remains silent on the customer service front (emails sent directly to them remain unanswered).
