d:fine Dual-ear Omnidirectional Headset Microphone
- Pristine audio quality
- Dual-ear mounting for active situations
- Minimal visual impact
- Adapts to all pro wireless systems
The DPA d:fine headset microphone has the leading position when it comes to headworn microphones by combining absolute pristine audio quality with unique and simple mechanical solutions along side an extensive accessory line.
d:fine has been ergonomically designed to fit easily and seamlessly. It will adjust to fit any ear size and head shape while mounting securely and hardly visible on both ears. The dual-ear mount is dedicated for more active situations and will be safe in even the most rigorous and energetic performance applications. Just by rotating the boom and the earhooks, the microphone can be moved from left to right ear, or into the optimum position.
The d:fine omni is sensitive to sound from all directions making the positioning of the headset less critical and can be done by untrained personnel. It is truly a plug-and-play solution for any situation. The microphone boom is available in two lengths, the shorter one to keep out of sight and for handling extreme loud voices.
Staying true to the DPA legacy, the d:fine offers accurate, natural voice intelligibility along with its very high SPL capabilities one can both speak and sing with no hint of distortion. This is where DPA d:fine is head and shoulders above its competition.
The omni microphone is generally not sensitive to wind, breathing or handling noise. Nevertheless, intensive protection against pop/wind noise is integrated in the microphone design and windscreens are included. Also included is a capsule protection cap, a cable clip which anchors the cable to your clothing and a color coded cable clip offering easy recognition of a specific headset among many.
A service connector splits the cable from the microphone boom and allows for quick exchange of cable lengths/colors/connectors and is valuable for servicing if a cable is damaged.
Available in black, beige, brown, and lime green, the DPA d:fine is delivered in a neat, professional roadworthy box with room for accessories like transmitters, batteries and more.
The DPA accessory line includes windscreens, power supplies and adapters or cables with fixed connectors (MicroDot, 3-pin Lemo, TA4F mini XLR, Mini-jack).
