The extremely low-profile E6 Earset delivers beautifully uncolored audio while rejecting surrounding noise and feedback. An ultra-miniature electret condenser element is held close to the mouth by a thin boom and comfortable earpad. Three sensitivity options cover general speaking applications through extremely powerful vocals. Four colors allow you to match the E6 to your skin tone for minimum visibility. The element is available as a water- and wind-resistant omnidirectional microphone or as a pattern-changeable directional microphone for maximum isolation and gain before feedback. The boom adjusts for a custom fit and is available in a classic springy style, the extremely flexible “i” style, or the Flex style providing a soft boom in front and a springy ear section.
The E6 is adaptable to a wide range of applications and is available with many customization options to best meet your specific needs.
If the mic will only be used by one person, choose the classic E6, which has a springy boom—once adjusted for fit, it will continually hold this shape. If many different speakers will be using the same mic, get the E6i with a soft, durable boom designed to be flexed repeatedly. The third option, the E6X, has a springy ear-loop and a soft boom, and is great when a few people will be using one mic.
An omnidirectional (O) Earset rejects unwanted sound and feedback better than a lavalier almost any way you wear it, so it is very user-friendly for new and experienced users alike. It’s ideal for anyone working with a PA system covering a room without stage monitors. For situations where there are loud monitors, extreme feedback, or environmental noise, choose a directional (D) Earset.
The more sensitive a microphone is to soft sounds, the earlier it will overload at loud sounds. The W5, W6, and W7 sensitivity designators correspond to general speaking, loud speaking and vocals, and powerful vocals, respectively. 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.
The E6 earset is available in Tan (T), Light beige (L), Cocoa (C), and Black (B). If you are unsure of the color you need, choose the darker options, as it will be more likely to blend in and draw less attention.
