ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 20, 2012 — DPA Microphones, the manufacturer of high level reference and headset microphones, is pleased to introduce an enhanced, dual-ear headset for its popular DPA d:fine directional and omnidirectional headset microphones at The 2012 NAMM Show (Booth 6996). Designed to meet the needs of active live theatre, music video production, concert sound, etc., the d:fine series dual-ear headset mic is now ready to take on the most rigorous and energetic performance applications, while delivering the world-class sound quality expected of a DPA microphone. The new dual-ear headset is available in three sizes.
“When we first introduced the d:fine headset microphones series to the live sound market, it was embraced by the industry as a condenser headset that could provide exceptional sound quality in the most challenging acoustic environments with a wonderfully simple and secure single-ear mount,” says Jarrod Renaud, Sales & Marketing for DPA Microphones, Inc. “With our new dual-ear headset, which is available in three sizes to fit everyone from a 10-year old performer to an adult musician, users can rely on d:fine to stay in place, bringing uninterrupted performance excitement to the audience for live sound and video projects that might include extreme dance and hip hop segments, for example.”
In a world that is increasingly video-oriented, from live action reality TV and theatre presentations to sporting events and bands producing videos for YouTube (and everything in between) the dual-ear headset for the d:fine headset microphone provides worry-free performance in the most exacting situations. While the d:fine capsule delivers the sound, through a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20kHz ± 2dB and a maximum peak handling capacity of 144 dB before clipping, the dual-ear headset delivers confidence that the mics will stay in place. Additionally, as the microphone isn't hard-wired into the headset, the cable can be replaced easily and inexpensively. All d:fine models come in beige, brown, black and a fancy lime color and are slim line for a low visibility profile.
“With the advent of the d:fine headset microphone, the serious band or performing group can now have an ultra-professional headworn microphone within reach to bring their performance to the next level,” continues Renaud. “With the new dual-ear headset option, the same performers can reliably add increased athletics and dance moves, assured the show or presentation will run smoothly.”
