Question about Countryman ISOMAX E6i (E6IOW5BC2) Microphone

2 Answers

Popping over the house speakers.

When we use the Countryman in our church service we are getting a popping sound through the house speakers. We have tried using the flat and crisp response tips with no change. Just isnt as loud with the flat response tip, but neither is the pastor. No difference with loud speaking parts or regular talking. Maybe we have a setup problem. We are using a Shure Model UT1-TF as the base. Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Has it always done this or recently started?
Try to determine if the popping is coming from the words spoken into it, or if you get popping from simply moving the mic and cable around. if you get popping from simple movement, there is a chance that the mic needs to be replaced. We use these in our church, and over the last 6 years I've had to replace about 6 of them...sometimes they go bad in the wire, sometimes inside of the mic. The wires are so thin, excessive use wears them out sometimes. Depending on the model countryman that you are using...I've seen them become disconnected where the mic. meets the wire...some can disconnect here beneath a rubber coupling...if you have this model, make sure that it is properly seated.
If there are no shorts in the mic or cable, and you only hear the popping while speaking into it, you may need to filter out the low end on this channel only (everything below about 120hz - 180hz)...and try using a wind shield to help control this.
Hard to troubleshoot without being there, but I hope this gives you a few good ideas.

    Are you replacing the mic and cable every year? I have an E6 that is giving my trouble I was going to replace the cable first. (because it is cheaper than replacing the mic and cable) I did not realize that the mic could go bad. thanks for the information.

The problem could be an RF issue. If it is..you can install a capacitor across the input lines and solve this. LECTROSONIC.COM has the capacitor, part number SCC330P and a wiring diagram. It will require some soldering. Also I would reccomend having a technician evaluate this and make sure RF is the problem. If the unit is brand new I am not sure what warranty issues you may have with soldering the capacitor in place. Good Luck.

We use a Countryman E5 for our Pastor. We are getting a ocasional crackling sound. I have checked all of the connections and we always start with fresh batteries.


It is common to get a crackling sound from the mic brushing against hairs or fibers on a shirt. Make sure the mic is taped to the face to avoid rubbing against anything.

Get a lot of poping and feed back


Hi, in other not to get feed back, make sure that the monitor speakers are a way from the mic.

Also it depends on the processors your using,Feed Back destroyer, compressor,etc.

That will determine the cause of the feed back.

Notemake sure the positioning ofthe speaker doesn't come to close in contact with themic,cause themic is so sensitive too peak any slight sound around.

Please you can pass your comment and tell me what you have in your setup.

Hope that helps..

Hi We use a Samson UT-5 at my church. Recently it seems like there is static/buzzing noise whenever our priest touches the connector. Is there a connector problem or should we take it to a repair store...


That sounds like a floating ground problem.
The UT-5 is a beltpack transmitter, right? What microphone do you have plugged in to it? We use a Countryman headset with a Sony beltpack, and there are components inside the connector for our setup.


Try unplugging the microphone and see if you can make the beltpack buzz without a microphone. If so, then it's in the beltpack. If not, it might be the mic cable.

We have a problem with what sounds like the mic.


There are so many variables with sound systems, sometimes it's hard to isolate the problem. When I have a problem with the sound system at my church I usually try and force the problem again. In my experience it's usually been the cable that will go bad before the microphone. Try moving the cable around at the end where it plugs into the microphone, if you get any crackling or popping it usually means the cable has a short in it somewhere. Another problem I run into pretty often is that the channel on the soundboard is having problems. Try switching channels and see if the problem comes up again.

The countryman E6 mic caused a loud bang during use.


It appears that the "bang" was the result of a static discharge from the mic boom. I trust it doesn't happen again.

Intermittent "popping" sound through the PA


Hiya, try to isolate the fault first, ( amp, mixer, whatever else is in) Easiest way is to switch of mixer, if still there, then probably the amp if those are the only 2 items in the PA. Once isolated, it might need repair as this often power supply issues. Before sending it in though just make sure all connections, plug wires etc are good as well. Bets of luck

I have no sound from my E6


Check the headset closely around the mic capsule and ear attachment for placing the mic on your ear. This is prone to problems from bending the mic to fit different people. You may find a break in the metal under clear rubber material. Also the cable itself could have a problem. Countryman sells the cable and it unplugs rather easily. There is a junction in the cable that is actually a plug. You can pull it apart there. Be careful as the mic is very expensive. Also countryman provides excellent technical support. Good luck.

A little more info on our poblem


The problem may be resolved by placing a 330 PF capacitor across the mic's two input lines. With countryman you cannot access the mic capsule easliy so it is best to take the TA5F connector apart,( this would be the connector that plugs into the beltpack) and place the capacitor across the two lines. LECTROSONICS.COM has the capacitors and a wiring diagram to help solve this. The part number for the capacitor is SCC330P

Good Luck!
