The best sound is close to the source

Headworn microphones, whether on one ear – earset – or two ears – headset, are popular because of their ease of use, amazing sound and flexibility. Once placed on the performer, the microphone sits securely and unobtrusively close to the sound source and allows the user to move freely about without having to hold a microphone in the hand or have a lavalier mic clipped on the shirt. Headworn mics remove the disadvantage of changing color of the sound as the head moves around.

Legacy or CORE by DPA – the choice is yours

DPA's legacy headset and earset mics have always been, and still are, some of the most clear, consistent and robust miniature microphones you can find on the market. They are 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 a mic with CORE by DPA technology.

CORE is a powerful technology at the heart of DPA miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion. From a whisper to a scream, you will experience increased clarity and openness.
CORE is available for select models of our miniature and headworn microphones.

A durable package

DPA headset and earset mics are designed to withstand the toughest of conditions. Our unique Double Vent Protection System allows for a great resistance to humidity and sweat. With a gold-treated diaphragm and microphone housing plus a Kevlar-core cable, our mics are made to endure.

“Durability and ease of use were key factors in our choice of DPA [4288]. These microphones will be used for up to five hours every night, across the entire six month summer season, so they need to be tough and robust to withstand that kind of use."

–  Matt Spence, head of AV for tedgroup


A solution that fits any need

DPA headset and earset mics allow you to meet a wide range of users' needs. You can choose different boom lengths to match the needs of the specific talent. Short booms are often best for louder speakers or situations where the mic needs to be less obtrusive. The flexible headset mounts, available on many variants, will fit any head and ear size. Just by rotating the boom and the adjustable ear-hook, the microphone can be moved from left to right ear, or into the optimum position. DPA headset and earset mics also feature detachable cables for easy replacement.

...best of all, even microphone-apprehensive users were captured consistently and clear; hand a microphone to the same group of users, or stand them in front of a spot or a podium, and I guarantee the results won’t be that consistent or nearly as usable.
