Artists who like the freedom to dance and sing on stage should look to DPA Microphones for the very latest in headset and miniature microphone technology. The d:screet™ 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphone series now has two reinforced cable solutions for enhanced robustness. A new Omnidirectional Necklace Microphone is also being introduced to the d:screet Miniature Microphone line. Also included in their product offerings are DPA’s new d:fine™ 66 and 88 Headset Microphones, which are ideal for performers who need to move freely and don’t want to be constrained by a handheld microphone or a mic on a stand.
To ensure that people who are not used to handling miniatures can use the mics without fear of BREAKing them, DPA is launching the more robust d:screet™ 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphone cable. The company is also introducing a heavier-duty version, which is ideal for people who require even more enhanced security, and for whom the visual appeal is of less importance. It features a stainless steel housing, sturdy 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 increasingly demanding needs from the market for a solid workhorse that delivers superb sound under challenging conditions,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “Apart from the upgraded cables for 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 removed quickly several times by untrained talent without a sound expert nearby.”
With the new d:screet Necklace Microphone, users don’t have to think about attaching the mic to any clothes—even being naked is not a problem at all. The d:screet 4060 Miniature Microphone is of typical DPA quality and is perfect for reality show settings. In fact, it has been used for more than a year in the Danish adaptation of Big Brother.
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 Headset Microphone range now covers every need that may arise for actors, musicians and singers.
“We see a growing need for body worn microphone solutions and a need for them to be even sturdier for hard use in live environment and similar settings,” adds Poulsen. “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. It 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 styles and features. Combining the flexibility of our modern d:fine ear mount solution with the sound qualities of the classic 4066/4088 Headsets, fans can choose between a variety of sound handling, size and cleaning options, depending on the intended application.”
