The 4560 is suited to applications such as sound system documentation, soundscape analysis and sound quality assessment

DPA Microphones is targeting content creators looking to implement immersive audio in their projects with the release of the 4560 Core binaural headset mic. It has been designed to capture what each ear hears so that later, when content is played back through headphones, the listener can experience immersive sound as it would have been live and in person.

The manufacturer states that the 4560’s capabilities are suited to applications such as sound system documentation, soundscape analysis and sound quality assessment, as well as sound for theatre productions and video games.

A pair of DPA’s 4060 Core miniature microphones sit at the ‘core’ of the 4560 headset. They are mounted on two ear hooks located just outside the user’s ear canal, much like a pair of earbuds. They capture the sound being heard by the person wearing the 4560 during a recording, replicating it 1:1. The ear hooks are attached to a flexible headset that can be adjusted to best fit the user’s head. Foam screens are bundled with the microphones for damping wind noise when needed.

DPA product manager René Mørch notes that the 4560 Core binaural headset mic can also be used in applications requiring discretion, as the microphone is so small that it may give the impression the user is only wearing a pair of headphones. ‘This can be very useful for people recording in hostile environments where it is not safe or appropriate to show a microphone,’ he said. ‘But even for normal podcasts, binaural recording provides content that is much more immersive, alive and compelling compared to traditional recording techniques.’

In brief, the 6066 Core Subminiature headset microphone is now available in three colours: beige, black and brown.
