Point Source Audio CR-8S

SERIES8 Cardioid Earset Microphone

Model No: CR-8S

The CR-8S is an exceptionally durable cardioid earworn microphone ideal for producing performance grade audio quality that is typically only experienced using a larger format microphone. A cardioid headset microphone will pick up one focused sound from one direction compared to an omni that picks up from several directions.


Cardioid Earset Placement

The CR-8S is a great choice when you need a cardioid earworn microphone to pick up sounds predominately from one direction. No need to force the earset microphone in front of the mouth either – it is designed to rest at the corner of the mouth to maintain its low-profile appearance.

Cardioid Earset Boom Flexibility

This earworn microphone features our renowned “Unbreakable Boom” bendable to 360° without breakage. Because of its pickup pattern, this cardioid earworn microphone is well suited for high noise environments and live productions. The CR-8S earworn microphone can be worn either over the left or right ear, or as a dual earset microphone option giving users four (4) ways to wear it.
