H6 Headset

The lowest profile headset microphone in the world, combining pure sound quality and water-resistance with a comfortable, easily adjustable headframe.


The H6 Headset is the lowest profile headset microphone in the world. Combining the transparent sound quality and water-resistant capsule design of the E6 Earset with a comfortable, lightweight, and easily adjustable headframe, the H6 Headset is perfect for houses of worship, theaters, broadcasters, and presenters. The H6, available in both omnidirectional and directional versions, features a new sealed connector with exceptional moisture resistance, a slim and nearly indestructable cable, and three sensitivity options. 

The H6 Headset is supplied with:

  • Detachable cable
  • Carrying case
  • Black and white cable clips
  • Windscreen
  • Protective caps

Nearly invisible

With a diameter of only 0.1” (2.5 mm) — the size of a No. 2 pencil lead — the mic capsule virtually disappears when worn.

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.

Sweat - resistant connector

The mic detaches from the cable using a new connector with a tight seal against moisture.

Brand is the manufacturer of the wireless transmitter or digital recorder which will be used with the microphone. Choose "Hardwired" for a phantom powered XLR3 connection.

Model is the model number of the transmitter pack or digital recorder.

For digital recorders only choose how you would like the mono microphone signal routed:

"Audio on Left Channel" to route the mono microphone signal to the recorder’s left channel.

"Audio on Left and Right Channels" to route the mono microphone signal to the recorder’s left and right channels.

Omnidirectional microphones pick up sound from all directions equally, whereas directional microphones focus more on one direction than others.

For microphones that are used very close to the source -- such as earsets, headsets, and head-worn lavaliers -- the omnidirectional pattern is usually the best option since the proximity to the source provides ample gain-before-feedback.

Directional E2 and E6 Earsets and directional H6 Headsets are marked with a green band.

For microphones used farther from the source -- such as hanging choir or podium mics -- or in situations requiring extreme isolation -- floor monitors or speakers nearby, very loud environments -- choose a directional microphone with a cardioid or hypercardioid pattern.

Omnidirectional microphones pick up sound from all directions equally.

Cardioid rejects more ambient noise compared to an omni while providing a wide front-lobe for flexibility in placement.

Hypercardioid provides the most rejection of ambient noise but has a narrower front-lobe.

Bidirectional or Figure 8 picks up sound equally from two directions, and are commonly used in mid-side recording setups.

The more sensitive a microphone is to soft sounds, the earlier it will overload at loud sounds. We provide sensitivity options based on the intended use, from general speaking to powerful vocals or instruments. "W" sensitivities are for wireless systems; "P" sensitivities are for hardwired systems.

E6 Earset: or H6 Headset For standard spoken word applications, choose the W5. For musical theater, or dynamic presenters, choose the W6. For opera singers, or other extremely loud applications only, choose the W7.

E2 Earset: The standard gain (W5, no colored band) is for almost all applications, including vocals and speaking. The lower gain (W6, blue band) is for powerful vocals requiring the highest overload.

Lavaliers: Choose W4 for standard chest-worn applications, W5 for head miking in a theatre, and W6 for head miking with very powerful vocals--for example, head miking an opera singer--or positioning near the mouth.

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.
