DPA Microphones has announced the 4466 Core Omnidirectional and 4488 Core Directional Headset Microphones for use in theatre, broadcast, worship and corporate conferencing.

DPA 4466/4488 Core Headset MicrophoneBased on the 6066 Subminiature Headsets, the new headsets feature the DPA 5mm round microphone capsule in a one-size-fits-all design with adjustable height and boom length to accommodate small to large head types. A three-point gripping system (above, below and behind the ear) ensures a security, while the flexible ear hooks provide 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,’ says DPA Product Manager, René Mørch. ‘With the 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. This includes the 90° cable management at the neck. The headset frame, boom and capsule have a non-reflective surface for unobtrusiveness and ease-of-use for camera crews. The 4466 and 4488 are available in the company’s standard black and beige options, with a brown version to follow.

Pricing for the new headsets begin at €595 (US$770) for the 4466 and €645 (US$840) for the 4488, both with MicroDot connector. For a three-pin LEMO option, pricing is €670 (US$870) for the 4466 and €720 (US$940) for the 4488.
