Point Source Audio Launches “Unsinkable” Earworn Microphone

Point Source Audio’s NEW CO-5w Waterproof Mic Defends Against Steam, Sweat and Stage Make-up.

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 theatre 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.

Availability & Pricing:
The CO-5w Waterproof Earworn Microphone is shipping now. The single-ear version retails for $335 MSRP, and the dual-ear version retails for $425. The CO-5w is offered in a variety of terminations designed to work with all the most common wireless systems. Standard offerings are immediately available and special orders for custom wiring are welcomed as well.

Point Source Audio Conceives Miniature Lavalier Mic from its Popular Earworn Series

CO-7L Miniature Lavalier Microphone

New CO-7L Can be Cleverly Camouflaged

Novato, CA — Point Source Audio launches the new CO-7L Miniature Lavalier in response to customer demand for a lavalier version of its flagship CO-7 earworn microphone.

The new CO-7L Miniature Lavalier fills a need for speakers in broadcast or theatre production who generally prefer or need an “invisible” option. The CO-7L element is extremely small so it can be cleverly hidden in the hairline, behind a button, or even attached to eyeglasses. It is also water-resistant to be more resilient against humidity and moisture stemming from breath or perspiration.
The CO-7L is a Miniature Omni-directional Condenser Lavalier Microphone that handles up to 140dB SPL, so it should be the choice for actors, broadcasters, presenters, or pastors looking for maximum intelligibility and clean, accurate reproduction. Additionally, the CO-7L is offered in multiple colors to allow matching or blending to hair, skin or clothing.

CO-7L Miniature Microphone

Customers that love our CO-7 Earworn Mic have been asking us for a sister lavalier for quite some time,” said Yvonne Ho, Vice President of Marketing for Point Source Audio. “There are definitely advantages and applications for both an earworn and lavalier; earworn mics are extremely easy to fit, while miniature lavs can be completely camouflaged.”

Availability & Pricing:

The CO-7L is shipping now and retails for $359 MSRP. The Miniature Lavalier is offered in a variety of terminations designed to work with all the most common wireless systems. Standard offerings are immediately available and special orders for custom wiring are welcomed as well.

Popular Standard Offerings:

    CO-7L-AK – wired for AKG, available in Beige, Tan, Black
