NAMM 2012: DPA Microphones announces new headset option for d:fine series

Microphone manufacturer DPA Microphones has announced the launch of an enhanced dual-ear headset for its d:fine directional and omnidirectional headset microphones at The 2012 NAMM Show (Booth 6996).

Designed for such applications as active live theatre, music video production and concert sound, the d:fine series dual-ear headset mic is designed to tackle the most rigorous performance situations.

“When we first introduced the d:fine headset microphones series to the live sound market, it was embraced by the industry as a condenser headset that could provide exceptional sound quality in the most challenging acoustic environments with a wonderfully simple and secure single-ear mount,” said Jarrod Renaud, sales and marketing for DPA Microphones.

“With our new dual-ear headset, which is available in three sizes to fit everyone from a 10-year old performer to an adult musician, users can rely on d:fine to stay in place, bringing uninterrupted performance excitement to the audience for live sound and video projects that might include extreme dance and hip hop segments, for example.”

The dual-ear headset for the d:fine headset microphone is aimed at providing optimum performance in the most exacting situations. While the d:fine capsule delivers the sound, through a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20kHz ± 2dB and a maximum peak handling capacity of 144 dB before clipping, the dual-ear headset ensures that the mics will stay in place.

“With the advent of the d:fine headset microphone, the serious band or performing group can now have an ultra-professional head-worn microphone within reach to bring their performance to the next level,” continued Renaud. “With the new dual-ear headset option, the same performers can reliably add increased athletics and dance moves, assured the show or presentation will run smoothly.”
