SOURCE: 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.

You likely broke one of the 4 wires between the circuit board in the pack and the connector for the mic when you replaced the antenna lead. These leads are hard to work on and the solder can pull away. They can appear to be connected and not quite touching... a gentle tug to test each one!!!

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.

Countryman mic getting a noise like a white noise generator sounds but it comes and goes. What can I do about it?


Serious crackle or noise is a different problem, but a lesser, rustling crackle is very common with these mics. If you aren't looping the cable close to the mic, you will run into issues.

What you have to do, is put a small, 1/2' loop in the cable, making sure that the looped part of the cable is touching the initial part of the cable. Affix them so they stay that way throughout your performance/production. The closer you get the loop to the mic, the better.

As a test, take the mic, hook it up to equipment and listen on headphones. Start handling the mic, mainly by rubbing the cable, or rub the cable with various fabrics, listening for the rustle. Then put the loop in it and do the same thing. It is amazing how much more quiet it becomes. Try it with the loop half way down the cable and handle the cable above and below the loop. you can hear the rustling above the loop, but not below.

This model HAS to have that loop for quiet audio.

Countyman E6 "crackels".


Replacement caps are available from countryman directly. The noise is usually indicative of a cable problem. Check the wires where they enter the capsude and at the connector end as well. I believe that countryman has a "refurb" rpogram where they will replace the cable for a nominal fee (much less than a replacement). Caution should be used when storing the mics such that the cables don't get tangled or crimped.

When recording the signal starts out great but then gets very quiet, sometimes there's a high pitch frequency too. Any ideas? It's 2nd hand but has been working fine for over 3 years.


Your capsule is gone, sorry. I've owned 2 NT2s that I bought over 5 years ago. Eventually the capsule goes and that was what happened to mine: "started working-got quiet-unwanted noise"
The first time it happened Rode replaced my capsule for a $50 flat rate repair fee (capsules are $300..what a great co.)
However I recently contacted them about the second one and they no longer have replacement parts.
They did offer to give me a discount on a new mic if I sent the broken NT2 to them for parts.
It's too bad...I love those mics.

Hi, my NT2 has started having massive cuts in volume mid take and also it's generating a very high pitch frequency from time to time. Any ideas? Mike

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!
