Superb Sound in a New Generation Ultra-miniature Lavalier Mic
● Overcomes digital transmitter RFI
● Water Resistant
● Durable Design
● Great Clear and Rich Sound
● 4 Color Choices
● Improved Moisture Resistance
● Original Vertical Diaphragm Design
● Optimized for the Human Voice
Sanken has introduced the COS-11D, a new version of the popular
lavalier which overcomes digital transmitter RFI (radio frequency
interference).
In today’s wireless transmission systems the microphone must
remain unaffected by new forms of digital transmitter signals. While
the benefits of these new systems are obvious, they present new
challenges in the area of emission protection. In many cases, noise
levels increase and the S/N ratio is deteriorated by the interference
of digital transmitters. Sanken has designed the COS-11D specifically to diminish the instances where interference is an issue.
The new COS-11D joins the COS-11 tradition of providing an ideal
solution for live broadcasting, location recording and studio applications. To provide a wide scope of applications, four colors are
available in the COS-11D series: Black, Gray, Beige and White.

Shotgun Microphone
CS-3e
Mono Shotgun Microphone
Location and Studio Shotgun Featuring Exceptional Off-axis
Rejection
● Unique design combination of line mic array and second pressure
gradient method
● Very sharp pinpoint directivity
● Provides rich human voice characteristics
The CS-3e stands out among shotgun microphones because it
maintains directivity over an extremely wide frequency range,
especially in the low frequencies. Because of its unique design,
the CS-3e is an excellent choice for use in difficult applications,
such as close-to-ceiling positions or locations near a noisy camera.
Even in such challenging situations, the excellent side and rear
rejection of the CS-3e helps to capture only the targeted dialogue
without ambient reverberation problems. The CS-3e delivers sharp
directional sound even in the lower frequencies. Sanken's original
design results in a low proximity effect which facilitates working in
a scene close-up and wide, while producing little change in sound
character.
In the CS-3e, three directional capsules are arranged in a frontback array to combine line microphone performance and secondorder pressure gradient response in a single system. With this
unique design, the CS-3e achieves phenomenal supercardioid
directivity in the lowest frequencies and throughout the full range
in a microphone only 27cm (10 inches) in length. It is significant
that the CS-3e picks up the targeted frontal sound sources with
exceptional clarity over a wide frequency range - even in noisy
ambient environments or in long reverberation spaces - by rejecting
undesired noise and sounds coming from the rear and sides.

● MONO, Normal STEREO and Wide STEREO 3
MODE switchable
● Superb rear rejection at 180 degrees even in low
frequencies
● MONO-STEREO compatibility.
Mono and phantom center have the same sound
characteristics
MONO
In the MONO mode, sharp directivity is maintained
over a wide frequency range for the aimed frontal
sound sources, using the combination of a second
gradient microphone and a line microphone. It is
significant that the CSS-5 picks up the chosen sound
source very clearly even in a noisy ambient situation
or in a long reverberation space.
NORMAL
In the NORMAL mode, the CSS-5 clearly picks up
the targeted sound as well as extremely accurate
stereo localization. STEREO angle is approx. 120
degree.
WIDE
The WIDE mode is designed for stereo recording of
sound effects and environmental information where
dialogue will be dubbed in at a later date. This mode
allows a wider 140 degree stereo width.
Mono-Stereo Compatibility
In stereo recordings, the frequency response of the
MONO summed output often exhibits interference,
or "comb filtering." This phenomenon is caused
by phase differences between the Left and Right
signals. This does not occur in single point recording,
either X-Y or M-S, but does happen with spaced - AB
- microphone stereo recording because of the time
intervals between the two capsules. In the CSS-5,
the three-capsule line array is for frontal pickup, with
its elements arranged vertically along the same axis,
so Mono / Stereo compatibility is superb.
