Pantoja first heard about DPA’s in-ear headset mics at NAB 2016. “We’ve had our d:fine™
4288s for close to three years now,” he says. “We like the form-factor of these mics and the inclusion of built-in ear buds. The mics experience the normal amount of wear-and-tear, and we’ve found that they are durable and hold up very nicely, even in wind and light rain. Also, these mics are much better looking than traditional broadcast headsets, and easier to set up than other manufacturers’ microphones. Sound quality has proven to be superior to the previous brands we’ve used, and the mics also mix in the right amount of ambient sound.”
DPA’s innovative in-ear headset microphones are the first broadcast solution to provide superior mic performance with convenient in-ear communication for broadcasters who insist on superior voice reproduction combined with comfort and ease-of-use. DPA’s in-ear broadcast microphone series, which includes the d:fine™
4188 and 4288 directional and 4266 omnidirectional microphones, feature a lightweight and flexible headset mic system and in-ear driver. The unique design of the mic and in-ear ensures there is no audio leakage from the ear to the capsule, and the in-ear audio is easily driven due to the high sensitivity.
