According to the company, �new detachable connectors span more than 400 models of equipment from AKG, Shure, Sennheiser, Lectrosonics, Sony, Wisycom and many additional equipment manufacturers. The connector types include 3.5 mm, Hirose, TA3F, TA4F/Tiny QG, TA5F, LEMO, and XLR (for use with phantom powered equipment such as digital recorders and mixing consoles).�

Countryman Associates President Chris Countryman said, �Due to its unusually small form-factor, our B6 omnidirectional lavalier has proven to be incredibly versatile. Because of its popularity, we regularly receive requests to make the B6 better able to interface with a wide range of equipment.�

In addition, Countryman has upgraded construction for a tougher and more RF-resistant connector, the company says. The connectors are available individually.
