Heads up for DPA
Based on the design of the company’s 6066 subminiature headsets, DPA Microphones has unveiled the 4466 Core Omnidirectional and 4488 Core Directional headset microphones. Featuring the brand’s 5mm round microphone capsule, the latest additions to the series are intended for use in theatre, broadcast, worship and corporate conferencing. With a one-size-fits-all design and adjustable height and boom length, the 4466 and 4488 headsets accommodate small to large head-types. A three-point gripping system – above, below and behind the ear – provides greater security, while the flexible ear hooks offer comfort during extended use.
“Our customers have been asking us to deliver our latest small form-factor headsets with the highly regarded 5mm mic capsules,” commented DPA product manager, René Mørch. “With the purposeful design of our boom and locking system, the headset can accommodate all head sizes with just one boom length. This is even true for the directional option, for which the correct placement is so important. With the addition of the 4466 and 4488, users now have access to a wide array of solutions to meet an even greater variety of needs while also maintaining the typical clear and transparent DPA sound, which produces high speech intelligibility.”
The new headsets share the same interchangeable cable and boom options as the 6066 subminiature headsets, including the 90-degree cable management at the neck. The headset frame, boom and capsule are finished in a non-reflective surface in the company’s standard black and beige options. A brown version will also be available.
