DPA MICROPHONES GIVES LIVE PERFORMERS MORE FREEDOM TO MOVE

At Frankfurt ProLight + Sound 2014 the company will unveil new additions to its body worn d:fine™ Headset and d:screet™ Miniature Microphone ranges.
Artists who like the freedom to dance and sing on stage should visit DPA Microphones at Frankfurt ProLight + Sound 2014 (booth 8:C71) for the very latest in headset and miniature microphone technology.

DPA's new d:fine™ 66 and 88 Headset Microphones are ideal for performers like actors, musicians and singers who need to move freely and don't want to be constrained by a hand-held microphone or a mic on a stand. With the flexible mechanics of the d:fine ear mount and the capsules from the legendary 4066 omni and 4088 cardioid headsets, the d:fine™ range now covers every need.

"We see a growing need for body worn microphone solutions and a need for them to be even more sturdy for the hard use in live environment, musicals, etc. Therefore, we launched the d:fine Headset Microphones a few years ago and selected the name based on a belief that the microphone would define a new generation of headsets,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA. "The d:fine™ certainly did meet our expectations, so we have now decided to expand the d:fine™ Headset series with this brilliant solution to give users a broad assortment of headsets and features. Combining the flexibility of our modern d:fine™ ear mount solution with the sound qualities of the classic d:fine™ 4066/4088 Headsets, fans can choose between a variety of sound handling, size and cleaning options, depending on the intended application."

Shown to the world for the first time at ProLight + Sound, the series of d:screet™ 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphone has a reinforced cable relief for even better robustness and to ensure that people who are not used to handling miniature microphones can use the mic without being afraid of breaking it. For the people who require even more security and where the visual size is of less importance, a heavy-duty version has been made, consisting of a stainless steel housing, a heavy-duty cable relief and a thicker 2.2 mm cable. Both models are exceptionally durable and ideally suited to the rigors of live touring.

"The expansion of the d:screet™ Miniature Microphones series is important for us to meet the ever more demanding needs from the market for a solid workhorse that delivers superb sound under challenging conditions," Christian Poulsen adds. "Apart from the upgraded versions of the d:screet™ 4060 series, we have also made a new d:screet™ Necklace Miniature Omni Microphone that is meeting the request from the market for a mic that can be mounted and de-mounted quickly several times by the untrained talent himself without a sound expert nearby. You don’t have to think about which clothes the mic is to be attached to – actually, being naked is not a problem at all. The d:screet™ 4060 Miniature Microphone is of typical DPA quality and is perfect for reality shows, for example. It has been used for more than a year in the Danish reality show, Big Brother."
