    DPA Microphones has announced the launch of the d:fine In-Ear Broadcast headset microphone, primarily targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio. “By integrating a monitoring component into our d:fine headset design, we have succeeded in combining two parallel systems and creating an easy to use solution that eliminates the need for separate in-ear monitors and headset microphones,” explains DPA product manager… View this story

    What are generally categorized as “miniature” microphones come in three basic configurations: lavalier, headworn and suspended. As someone who does a lot of corporate shows and events, I’ve got quite a bit experience with all three types. Lavalier mics (“lavs”) can be attached to clothing (usually via a clip) or hidden in costumes, hats and even hair (usually for theatrical performances) to pick up vocals without being visually distracting. They come in wired versions but are far more commonly are… View this story

    Point Source Audio (PSA) announced that its SERIES8 miniature microphones have been adopted by the three campuses of Chase Oaks Church of Plano, Texas. SERIES8 headset mics are well-suited to the church community, particularly those with large congregations and physical dimensions to match. Chase Oaks’ expansive campuses made servicing their microphones a growing challenge and expense.  “Our old headsets were continually snapping.  It was very frustrating,” recounts Chase Oak’s Audio Engineer Kevin Sanchez before discovering Point Source Audio’s SERIES8 and… View this story

    Michael DeMartini is a busy musician. As a member of two bands—one, performing dance music of many styles, the other a Polynesian ensemble—he regularly switches among a Taylor 6-string, an Ovation Double neck 12/6 guitar, or a lap steel guitar while also handling vocal responsibilities. By selecting a Countryman E6 Earset microphone for use with a Shure wireless system, he can now change instruments without worrying about getting back to the microphone in time. “Because I’m constantly switching instruments during… View this story

    It’s great to have microphones available that are small enough to hide on the bridge of a violin, on the bell of a sax, or near the mouth of a singer – and yet produce excellent sound quality with sufficient gain before feedback that they can be used for professional sound reinforcement. Headset, lavalier, instrument and other miniature mics have become both smaller and better over the years, to the point where some sound engineers choose them over larger format… View this story
