Point Source Audio Launches "Unsinkable" Earworn Microphone
Point Source Audio, manufacturer of the one-of-a-kind "unbreakable boom" earworn microphone, introduces their new "unsinkable" waterproof microphone.
The new CO-5w waterproof earworn microphone is the waterproof version of the popular CO-5 that many performers and pastors have come to rely on for years, the company says. The waterproof version combines all the performance characteristics of the CO-5 with a special water-protected mic element to make the CO-5w virtually unsinkable. With 125dB of SPL, this splash proof microphone is ideal for those who speak or perform in outdoor environments such as theme and amusement parks, cruise ships, water parks, zoos, aquariums, or summer camps. Pastors conducting baptisms will discover the CO-5w is impenetrable, even against accidental splashing. The waterproof microphone defends against sweat and steam and can be gently rinsed with water after use to remove stage makeup.
"We're super excited about our 'unsinkable' feature," said Yvonne Ho, vice president of marketing at Point Source Audio. "Of course, we don't recommend users drowning their wireless packs in water, but now they have a microphone shielded against humidity and water so it can be used almost anywhere."
The CO-5w waterproof earworn microphone has an omni-directional polar pattern that allows a full 360 degree pick up of sound providing a natural blend of voice and ambience. The design of the CO-5w lends itself to reduced speech-produced "popping sounds" and voice overloads in close mic applications.
