DPA Microphones unveils two new ‘one-size-fits-all’ headset mics

Danish manufacturer DPA Microphones has extended its range of headset mics with two new models.

The 4466 CORE Omnidirectional and 4488 CORE Directional headset mics both feature a one-size-fits-all design and adjustable height and boom length so that they can accommodate different head sizes. 

Based on the design of the company’s 6066 Subminiature Headsets, the new models feature the brand’s popular 5mm round microphone capsule. 

A three-point system that grips above, below and behind the ear is designed to ensure a secure fit, while the flexible ear hooks offer 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,” said DPA Product Manager René Mørch. “With the purposeful 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. Both the 4466 and 4488 are available in the company’s standard black and beige options, with a brown version coming soon.

The 4466 is priced at $770 (€595) while the 4488 comes with a price tag of $840 (€645).
