Countryman H6

I don’t get to play with headset microphones as much but when I do, I totally enjoy it. Well, I guess it’s more about how cool these things are. I had the opportunity to play with the Countryman H6 Headset. This is a headset that you use with your wireless transmitter for singers and presenters. The headset is fairly invisible and it works great with picking up your vocals. The real plus is how comfortable it feels while wearing it. Personally, without even being plugged in, I already felt amplified.

While Countryman says it is, I have not tested how water resistant it is.

However, judging from the build, you can sweat or spill water on it and the internal components will not get wet.

Going back to the look and feel, Countryman says they are the lowest profile headset mic in the industry. After researching a few, it’s definitely one of the lowest.
The overall sound quality is amazing! I’ll test this on some singers next.
