E2 EARSET

The E2 is tuned for maximum performance with minimum visibility.

 

Features

 

Nearly Invisible

The E2 Earset redefines pure sound in a virtually invisible package that is easier to use than even a lavalier or podium microphone. Like the classic E6 Earset, the E2 rests over the ear, but has a much shorter boom. Its hypercardioid polar pattern provides less isolation than an E6 Omni at the mouth, but with significantly less visibility. With an equalizing circuit built into the audio connector, the frequency response is tuned so you can experience full-bodied bass and precise highs that are warm and natural. The
element, boom, and new sub-miniature connector are all easily hidden on the user’s face; the position near the ear eliminates breath pops and makes fitting quick and easy. This results in the smallest and most discreet professional-quality microphone available.

 

Disappears in Hair

The E2 Earset’s position just ahead of the ear avoids jangling earrings and hides naturally in many hairstyles.

Versatile (EarClip)

The E2 works well with the Earset EarClip to create an extremely low-profile two-ear headset.

Future-Proof

The E2 water-resistant detachable connector makes cable or transmitter changes easy.

Head facing forward

The E2 is worn approximately 5” from the mouth; a typical directional lav is positioned on the chest 8” – 10” away.

The E2 is much better at preserving the bass than the directional lav and will never sound thin or distant.

Countryman E2 and typical cardioid lavalier on the chest, approximately gain matched for the voice band at the mix board.

Head turned to the side

When the user turns to the side, the E2 pickup remains full and accurate. As the directional lav moves off-axis and farther from the mouth, it dramatically drops the lows, distorting the user’s sound. Correcting on the fly greatly increases the chances of feedback.

The E2 is unaffected by head position; directional lavs change their gain and frequency response.

 

FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

 

“We frequently have a lot of child actors. With many children, the boom on the E6 may be a bit long. The E2, by contrast, has a shorter boom and, as a result, works really well on their smaller faces. The audio performance is first rate on both models, so by having the added flexibility of using the E2 with its shorter boom, we can readily accommodate every performer. I find our actors love the Countryman E6 and E2 microphones. They’re very comfortable wearing them, they like the way the mics fit on their faces, and they remain in place very well, so they’re never distracting.”

Options:

Brand/Model
  • Brand is the manufacturer of the wireless transmitter or digital recorder which will be used with the microphone.

  • Model is the model number of the transmitter pack or digital recorder. Choose “Hardwired” for a phantom powered XLR3 connection.
Color

Countryman products come in a variety of colors to blend in with their surroundings:

  • Light beige works well for light and pink skin tones.
  • Tan works very well for Caucasian skin tones as well as olive complexions.
  • Cocoa is the ideal choice for very light brown to chocolate skin tones.
  • Choose Black is the most popular choice for hiding against clothes. Use it for deep brown skin, or on other skin tones when you want the mic to be visible.

When in doubt about a skin tone match, choose the darker option. That’s because a mic that’s too light can resemble a scar or blemish, while a mic that’s slightly darker than the background resembles a shadow and draws less attention. For individuals with facial hair, consider matching to the hair color rather than the skin.

Sensitivity

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:

  • The highest gain (W5, no colored band) is appropriate for general speaking and vocals, and is the most popular option.
  • The less sensitive version (W6, blue band) is reserved for extremely loud vocal applications.

Description

The E2 Earset redefines pure sound in a virtually invisible package, and is easier to use than even a lavalier or podium microphone. Like the classic E6 Earset, the E2 rests over the ear, but has a much shorter boom, with a uni-directional element that provides nearly the isolation of an E6 Omni at the mouth, but with significantly less visibility. With an equalizing circuit built into the audio connector, the frequency response is tuned so you can experience full-bodied bass and precise highs that are indiscernible from an omni mic at the mouth.
