Novato, CA – Point Source Audio, manufacturer of the original and one-of-a-kind “unbreakable boom” earworn microphone, is making another big splash with their new “unsinkable” waterproof microphone.
The new CO-5w Waterproof Earworn Microphone is the waterproof version of the popular CO-5 that discriminating performers and pastors have come to rely on for years. The waterproof version combines all the reliable 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.” Stage performers and theater actors will appreciate the waterproof microphone to defend against sweat and steam, as well as being able to gently rinse the microphone element with water after use to remove stage makeup—a fitting “wash and wear” feature for this audience.
“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.
