DPA Microphones: Headset mics unchain melodies12 September 2014
Two headset microphones aim to address the needs of vocal performers who have to move freely without the obstructions of a handheld mic or mic stand.
The d:fine 66 omnidirectional and d:fine 88 directional headset microphones combine the sound capabilities of DPA’s existing 4066 Omni and 4088 Cardioid head-worn units with a new headset mount and flexible ear hooks.
The company claims the d:fine range offers accurate, natural voice intelligibility and very high SPL capabilities, allowing users to speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion.
The new microphones can be moved from left to right ear by rotating the boom and the earhook. Both are also available in dual-ear mount configurations, dedicated for more rigorous and energetic performance applications.
“There is a growing need for durable body worn microphone solutions with excellent sound reproduction for stringent use in live environments and similar settings,” said DPA CEO, Christian Poulsen. “When we launched the d:fine headset microphones we believed that they would define a new generation of headsets. They have certainly met our expectations, which is why we have decided to expand the series with this brilliant solution to give users a broad assortment of styles and features.”
