Sorry to say - but that's really poor advise to suggest placing a capacitor on your brand new mic!!! Don't do it. That will immediately void your warranty. Instead, take your Countryman back immediately to your dealer and trade it in for a Audio-Technica BP892cW-TH. Believe me, the Countryman E6i's are nothing but cheap headaches waiting to happen - then when you try getting them serviced from Countryman Associates, you'll learn first-hand what a real nightmare and expen$ive headache is all about. The Countryman E6i's are both highly over-rated and highly over-priced. Do yourself a favor and get rid of the Countryman while you can. The Audio-Technica is the better solution. You won't be sorry. Good luck.

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!

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..

Static when you wiggle the cable going into the connector (Shure wireless system)

1. You have a short at either the ground or the positive side of the connector.
2. You will need to solder the joint or replace the connector.
this will require you to disassemble the unit.

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.

Popping over the house speakers.

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.

Won't stay in place

the rubber sleve on these mics are made to be adjustable...and you can shape and form these into the best shape for your ear. try forming it into a shape that is more snug around your ear, maybe put it on and then squeeze it a little tighter. Sometimes the arch in the mic. gets places too low and needs to be formed up a little further.
Hope this at least gives you some things to try.
