The Countryman B3 lavalier microphone offers exceptional audio quality, low handling noise, extreme water-resistance, and unreasonable durability.
The B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone is essential to any well-stocked pro audio toolkit: it captures the highest-quality audio available in a lavalier mic, with field-selectable high-frequency response caps and extremely low handling noise. Whether you need a tie-clip lavalier for an interview, a hair-hidden mic for drama, a water-resistant mic for water sports or hurricane reporting, or simply a small mic to hide in a prop flower vase, you’ll never run out of applications for Countryman’s B3 lavalier.
Looks great when you want to see it, virtually disappears when you don’t. The B3 is easily hidden on the body or on set, with five colors to match clothing, hair, and skin tones. Use a felt tip marker to color the white caps for near-perfect concealability. Never suffer the hassle and degraded sound quality of under-clothing miking again.
Swappable protective caps let you shape the frequency response for different situations or to match other microphones. Detachable connectors allow you to interface to hundreds of wireless transmitters, recorders, and other equipment. Versions available for different speaking or singing styles, with up to 150 dB SPL capability.
Exceptional Sound Quality
The highest-quality audio available in a lavalier mic. Low distortion at SPL up to 140 dB on 48 V Phantom Power. The aramid cable and ultra-thin diaphragm combine to set a new standard for low handling noise. The
tiny size and natural sound pickup make the B6 easy to position for ambient noise and feedback rejection.
Rugged and Reliable
The B3 is exceptionally resistant to makeup, sweat, and moisture when used with the supplied protective caps, and works well in hair or on the body. The protective caps are easily removed for cleaning or replacement, and the Aramid-reinforced cable gives it world-class survivability.
