DPA Microphones introduced new d:fine 66 and d:fine 88 miniature headset microphones at 2014 NAMM, joining the original d:fine as well as the traditional 4066 and 4088 under the company’s d:fine headset microphone family.
With a contemporary look and feel, the new mics carry on the sound capabilities of the microphone capsules from the classic 4066 and 4088, and the features of the modern d:fine mechanics, such as an advanced headset mount and flexible ear hooks.
“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.”
The new DPA d:fine 88 directional and d:fine 66 omnidirectional are 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 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.
