DPA 4088-DC-A-B03-LH

The DPA d:fine 4088 Directional Headset Mic is a cardioid headset intended for use in presentation and theatre settings. This version also includes DPA's legendary 4088 cardioid condenser capsule, meaning you can combine the robust performance of the 4088 mic with the modern frame of the d:fine series. Featuring a sleek design and offering pristine vocal clarity, the d:fine is a perfect solution for capturing any speech or vocal part.

With a directional, cardioid pick-up pattern, the mic rejects ambient, background noise to keep focus on sound coming from the mouth, increasing the gain to feedback ratio. It also has a high SPL handling, meaning it will deal with even the loudest of singers without the chance of distortion. It’s design means it can be switch from either the right or left ear, and the adjustable boom means the mic can always be moved into an optimal position.

The mic is available in a variety of boom lengths, colours and connections. Please choose from the above.

This mic is also available with a MicroDot connection. Please see related products.
