Staying true to the DPA legacy, the d:fine™ Slim Omnidirectional Headset Microphone offers accurate, natural voice intelligibility along with its very high SPL capabilities. You can both speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion. The d:fine™ Slim Omnidirectional Headset Microphone is head and shoulders above the competition.

With low noise and high sensitivity, the d:fine™ Slim Omnidirectional Headset Microphone delivers the clearest, most transparent sound available on the headset market. This condenser mic handles up to 144 dB peak before clipping. Due to the mic’s exquisite linear response, low distortion and broad dynamic range, it sounds great no matter what the application.

The d:fine™ Slim Omnidirectional Headset Microphone is sensitive to sound from all directions making the positioning of the headset less critical and can be done by untrained personnel. It is truly a plug-and-play solution for any situation. The microphone boom is available in three lengths, the shorter one to keep out of sight and for handling extremely loud voices.

As with other omnidirectional mics, the d:fine™ Slim Omnidirectional Headset Microphone is generally not sensitive to wind, breathing or handling noise. Nevertheless, intensive protection against pop and wind noise is integrated in the microphone design. Windscreens, a capsule protection cap, a cable clip (to anchor the cable to your clothing) and a color-coded cable clip (offering easy recognition of a specific headset among many) are included.
 

Legacy or CORE – the choice is yours

The legacy d:fine™ Slim Omnidirectional 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 4166 Slim Omnidirectional Flex Headset Microphone 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 4166 Slim Omnidirectional Flex Headset Microphone will be available from April 2018 with:
  • 110 mm boom in beige, black or brown with either MicroDot, 3-pin LEMO, TA4F Mini-XLR or Mini-Jack termination.
  • 90 mm boom in beige, black or brown with MicroDot termination.
  • 40 mm boom in beige, black or brown with MicroDot termination.
