EMW Omnidirectional Lavalier

Perfect underwater or under clothes, the EMW handles handling noise and tackles tough environments.

Configure

Designed for extreme conditions, the EMW's wraparound polymer shell reduces fabric rubbing noise and protects the capsule from shocks and wet conditions. Tailored frequency response options match applications on or under clothes. Perfect for use under protective pads, in watersports, or anywhere the going gets tough.

Minimize rubbing noise

We use a self-lubricating, low friction plastic for the EMW body, and mount the capsule perpendicular to the plane of vibration to minimize rubbing noise.

Rugged cable

Aramid strength members and engineered alloys ensure that our cables provide extreme tensile and flex strength.

True colors

Our colors are precision-matched to theatre makeup shades to blend with a wide range of skin tones and clothing.

Water resistance

Our mics are water-sealed so you can use them in the hair or against the skin under hot theater lights without "sweat-outs".

Color

Learn More

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

Tan works perfectly for average Caucasian skin tones, as well as olive complexions and is a common earset choice.

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.

Black is appropriate for extremely dark skin or for situations where you want the mic to be visible.

White is a versatile choice for light-colored clothing. The white protective caps available for our lavaliers can be colored with felt pens for a custom match to clothing.

For placement against skin, when in doubt, 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 tends to blend much better and draws less attention.

High-Frequency Response

Learn More

The EMW Lavalier is available in three frequency responses, all of which deliver audio quality with exceptional warmth and smoothness.

The “F” (Flat) response provides the flattest possible curve for uncolored reproduction of audio sources such as musical instruments or room ambient sounds.

The “S” (Shelved) response introduces a smooth 6 dB “shelved up” curve between 2 kHz and 15 kHz to compensate for lost facial reflections when the mic is used on the exterior of the body, as in the typical lapel or tie-clip position.

The “P” (Peaked) response provides a sharp 12 dB “peaked” curve at 12 kHz to preserve sibilance and intelligibility when the mic is hidden under clothing.
