DPA MICROPHONES - Headworn - d:fine CORE series
The DPA CORE series implements new technology within existing DPA capsules, to provide a more defined sound by minimising distortion and expanding the dynamic range. Although originally designed for use with wireless systems in theatre, television and close-positioned instrument applications, the omnidirectional capsules also use 'hermetic sealing' and a 'nano coating' to provide an IP rating of 58 - particularly relevant to on-field sports, where moisture from the body or atmosphere are unavoidable.
The acoustic response of the microphone is selected by the choice of two 'protection grids' supplied with each microphone. The short grid gives a 3dB soft boost at 8-20kHz and is intended to be used when the microphone is mounted on the performer's head. The long grid gives a 10dB boost at 12kHz, intended for chest placement. The grids can be detached from the microphone and cleaned of sweat, make-up etc. with alcohol.
The microphones are fitted with cable terminated in a 'MicroDot' connector. A range of adapters for different wireless transmitters and direct cable connection is available. A range of fixing clips (not included) are also available.
Available in black, brown, or beige the CORE 4066 capsule is configured as a headset with dual ear rests. The omnidirectional pre-polarised condenser capsule has a reduced sensitivity compared to the Legacy 4066 capsule, giving increased dynamic range of 111dB typical, and a maximum SPL of 144dB with a nominal sensitivity of 6mV/Pa. The microphone capsule has a diameter of 5.4mm and has a fixed cable of 1.2m in length and 1.6mm in diameter, for a total weight of 14g including MicroDot connector.
Available in black, brown, or beige, again in a headset configuration with dual ear rests, this capsule has all the audio and physical properties of the CORE 4066 with the exception of the pickup pattern, which in this case is cardioid.
This is available in black, brown, or beige and as headset configurations with either dual or single ear-rests. Both configurations offer boom arm lengths of 110mm, 90mm, or 40mm. The omnidirectional pre-polarised condenser capsule of the CORE 4166 SLIM has the audio properties of the CORE 4066 except that the capsule is of slimline proportions as opposed to the cylindrical properties of the CORE 4066.
This microphone offers the same audio properties as the CORE 4066 however the boom arm is interchangeable. The CORE 4266 is available in black, beige, or brown, with boom arm lengths of 110mm or 90mm. A headset version with dual ear mount, or ear-set version with a single ear mount is available.
This is available in black, brown, or beige and as headset configurations with either dual or single ear-rests. Both configurations offer various boom arm lengths of 120mm or 100mm. The cardioid, directional pre-polarised condenser capsule of the DPA CORE 4188 SLIM has the audio properties of the CORE 4088. However the capsule is of slimline proportions as opposed to the cylindrical properties of the CORE 4088.
This microphone offers the same audio properties as the CORE 4088, however the boom arm is interchangeable. The CORE 4288 is available in black, beige, or brown, with boom arm lengths of 120mm or 100mm. A headset version with dual ear-rests and an ear-set version with single ear rest is available.
These adapters allow DPA miniature microphones to be connected to various radio microphone transmitters or a standard 48V phantom powered XLR connector. Note that the adapters contain circuitry to pass the correct supply voltage to the microphone, so may not be suitable for use with other miniature microphones. Adapters are available for most UHF transmitters. If an adapter is required for a transmitter not listed here, please contact Technical Support.
