DPA 4066 - d:fine Dual Ear Omni Microphone Headband
The DPA 4066 is a lightweight flexible headset mic designed for singers, presenters and actors. With an omni-directional pick up pattern, the mic is optimised to capture vocal parts from every direction, meaning the 4066 condenser capsule can be positioned easily by users of all skill levels, ensuring clear sound every time. The design of the frame allows the mic to be switched to either the left or right side of the face, or disassembled entirely so that the mic boom can be used for other applications.
With high SPL handling of up to 144dB when powered correctly, the mic performs well under loud theatrical voices and powerful singers, leaving no chance for distortion. It’s also compatible with all industry standard wireless transmitters through a wide range of connection adapters makes it possible to use the 4066 with most of the professional wireless systems available, plus 48 V phantom XLR connection.
Also avaliable in a Low Sensetivity/Low DC model. The sensitivity is adjusted to 1mV/Pa and the DC offset in the FET lowered, making matching to systems delivering down to 3 V power supply possible.
