The d:fine™ 4066 Omnidirectional Headset Microphone offers clean and transparent sound quality with lots of headroom. For years, this has been the chosen headset mic for broadcasters as well as theaters on Broadway and London's West End. This is due to its pristine sound and durability.

The headset construction is unique. You can detach the mic boom from the headset mount to switch it to either the left or right side and then reattach it. Humidity, often an issue in theatrical applications is not a problem. This microphone is constructed with a double-vent protection system and a drop stopper on the microphone boom. Also, the materials inside the mic are water resistant. These design elements make it very difficult for the microphone to fail due to humidity. In addition, the headset surface is matte-gold plated and the ear hooks are covered with a silicone hose.

The microphone’s sensitivity is 6 mV/Pa. This matches the level of the human voice to the general input sensitivity of most wireless transmitters. If powered correctly, the microphone will be able to handle sound pressure levels up to 144 dB SPL before clipping occurs.


Legacy or CORE – the choice is yours

The legacy d:fine™ 4066 has always been, and still is, one of the most clear, consistent and robust miniature microphones you can find on the market. It is known for working across a wide dynamic range as well as exhibiting low distortion across all SPLs. But, if you need to squeeze a little more performance out of your mics, choose CORE. The d:fine™ CORE 4066 gets a 14 dB increase in both THD and Dynamic range: 

Total harmonic distortion: < 1% THD up to 137 dB SPL peak
Dynamic range: Typ. 111 dB

CORE availability

The d:fine™ CORE 4066 Omnidirectional Headset Microphone is in beige with either MicroDot, 3-pin LEMO, TA4F Mini-XLR or Mini-Jack termination.

In January 2018, it will also be available in brown and black.
