88 DIRECTIONAL HEADSET MICROPHONE
The d:fine™ 88 Directional Headset Microphone combines the legendary sound of the 4088 Directional Capsule with the lightweight and flexible d:fine™ Headset system. Staying true to the DPA legacy, d:fine™ offers accurate and natural voice intelligibility and very high-SPL capabilities – users can both speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion.
Like all of the microphones in the range, the d:fine™ 88 Directional Headset Microphone offers accurate, natural voice intelligibility and very high SPL capabilities. Users can both speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion. The microphone capsule is also optimized for low distortion as well as humidity resistance.
The d:fine™ 88 Directional Headset Microphone is available with single- or dual-ear mounts. Single-ear mount variants are the quickest to put on and often the best choice when miking needs to be fast and easy. Dual-ear mount variants sit more securely around the head and are ideal for active performance situations.
Available in black, beige and brown, the d:fine™ 88 Directional Headset Microphone has been ergonomically designed to fit comfortably and easily around the head. This mic adjusts to fit any ear size and head shape while at the same time it mounts securely and is hardly visible. By rotating the boom and the ear hook, the microphone can be easily used on either the left or right ear.
Two directional boom lengths are available to accommodate different applications and head sizes: 120 mm (4.7 in), 100 mm (3.9 in).
Designed for professional use, the connector splits the cable from the microphone boom. This allows you to quickly swap broken cables and/or wireless connectors.
