Sanken Microphones is introducing for the first time at AES the new head worn COS-11D HWM, utilizing the same miniature mic used extensively as a lavalier in feature films and TV. This ultra-miniature new generation microphone was designed for hi-resolution audio and is now available for live stage productions, broadcast, and houses of worship.

“Having that same great Sanken sound quality in a head worn mic is an entirely new concept for live performance,” remarked Jim Pace, President of Sanken’s distributor plus24. “The omni pickup makes for very natural vocal sound and the sensitivity minimizes feedback.”

This new compact Sanken mic is ideal for major talent, stage singers, high-profile commentators, on-camera journalists, musical actors, and a wide variety of live performers. The new COS-11D HWM is especially valuable when there is rigorous head movement, while the close proximity of the mic to the vocal source provides consistently exceptional audio with very natural characteristics.

Sanken, known worldwide as an industrywide standard in highest quality professional studio and stage microphones, utilizes an exclusive vertical placement of the diaphragm for a much greater effective area within an extremely small casing. The COS-11D HWM features a front mesh screen which is water resistant, better protecting the microphone from perspiration and cosmetics.

This new Sanken microphone was designed to meet today’s HD audio standards while providing greater immunity to RF interference. The COS-11D HWM incorporates exclusive design advances that deal with both digital and digital/analog hybrid RF wireless transmission.
