Danish mic manufacturer DPA has debuted the newest additions to its d:fine range – the d:fine 66 and d:fine 88 Miniature Headset Mics – at the 2014 NAMM Show.
“We launched the d:fine Headset Microphones a few years ago and selected the name based on a belief that the microphone would define a new generation of headsets,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones.
“The d:fine certainly did meet our expectations, so we have now decided to expand the d:fine Headset series to include this third solution to give users a broad assortment of headsets and features. Combining the flexibility of our modern d:fine ear mount solution with the sound qualities of the classic 4066/4088 Headsets, fans can choose between a variety of sound handling, size and cleaning options, depending on the intended application.”
Now featuring a total of four capsules, two omnis and two cardioids, and three headset mounts, single-ear, dual-ear and personalised mount, the d:fine Headset Microphones Series offers something for every user and environment.
The new DPA d:fine 88 Directional Headset Microphone and d:fine 66 Omnidirectional Headset Microphone, which is recognized by the rounded capsule/housing of the 4066/4088 predecessors, is intended for use by actors, musicians and singers who require optimal sound and grid cleaning/changing options.
The d:fine Headsets that are recognized by their low-profile flat microphone head are perfect for presenters, speakers or hosts who require minimal visual impact. The classic 4066 and 4088 are for users who prefer a more personal fit to the headset mount.
