DPA 4088-DL-A-F10-LH d:fine Legacy 4088 Cardioid Headset Mic with TA4F Connector

SKU: DPA 4088-DL-A-F10-LH

A miniature headset mic, the DPA Microphones d:fine™ 4088 is an industry standard, built upon the finest of DPA's experience in microphone design and manufacturing. It's among the best sounding directional headworn microphones available today for performing talent of various sorts. Open, natural, and reliable are words that can truly accurately describe this microphone. The high quality of the microphone itself means that you'll hear the sound of the voice - not the microphone. In acoustically demanding live performance situations where background noise as well as feedback are concerns, the 4088 easily tackles these challenges. This particular model – the 4088-DL-A-F10-LH – is beige-colored with cardioid polar pickup pattern, and features DPA's Legacy technology along with a fixed TA-4F Mini-XLR connector (compatible with Shure, Line 6, and TOA transmitters, all sold separately).

Its smooth and elegant design makes it the most invisible headworn cardioid microphone today. Sound quality, visual elegance, and versatility all blend to transform every show into the performance of a lifetime. The capsule is a pre-polarized first-order pressure gradient transducer, hidden in a small and lightweight housing, with dimensions just slightly larger than DPA's omni capsules.

Its mechanical design is based on the proven build quality of the 4066 headband microphone, and the headband mount is exactly the same, however, the boom is 3 centimeters (1") longer, allowing it to match the need for placement at the corner of the mouth. The flexibility and stability of this construction is unique and unequalled in the market.
