The days of broadcast hosts having to fiddle with two parallel systems – one for the mic and one for in-ear communication – are over. Welcome to fantastically natural sound reproduction from our proprietary capsule, crystal-clear in-ear communication, great fit and integrated convenience – all in one good-looking headset.

The d:fine™ 88 In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone, Directional 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 In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone, Directional 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.
 

Setting new standards for the broadcast industry

Already the worldwide leader in headset mics for theater and broadcast applications, the d:fine™ In-Ear Broadcast Series now adds an integrated in-ear monitor to create a broadcast and communication headset with outstanding acoustic performance and feather-light comfort.

The in-ear drivers allow no audio leakage to the microphone capsule. They are easily driven due to their high sensitivity. Two sizes of ear-pads are included to fit most ears.

The cable steer, located at the headset mount, controls the cable run down the neck. You can easily adjust the headset mount size.

These innovative headsets – the first of their kind – are designed for broadcast professionals who insist on superior voice reproduction without compromising on simple setup, minimalistic form factor and daylong comfort.
