3mm of Audio Perfection
CORE Subminiature Microphones are just three millimeters in size but pack the audio power of larger, award-winning DPA mics. What they lack in size, they more than make up for in clarity, consistency and durability - three qualities that really matter.
All-Day Professional Headworn Solution
Beyond this minimized size and maximized sound potential, the d:fine 6066 headset sports a completely redesigned, lightweight headset frame.
Technically advanced mechanical construction
The new one-size-fits-all headset is the most advanced construction on the market. It ensures comfort, even during long-term wear, but does so without sacrificing security. Its form grips gently and snug around the head and is easily adjustable. The spring mechanisms that grip around the ears are gentle, yet firm enough for you to feel secure during your performance. The headset can be easily customized on site to suit individual performers for perfect fit.
2-way adjustable boom
The boom is 130 mm long but can easily be adjusted so that it sits perfectly at the corner of the performer's smile (the optimal placement of a headworn mic). Not only can the boom be extended / shortened, it can be pivoted up and down at a fixed point below the ear (no more bending the boom). An anti-rotating mechanism designed into the boom shape, prevents it from rotating. A sliding lock system ensures that the boom is locked into the desired position. The entire boom can be detached at a point below the ear and moved from the right to left side of the frame. An added service connector at the end of the boom pole is there so the boom and cable can be replaced independently if needed. The serve connector is well-protected by a plastic cover that slides over the gold-plated connectors.
The entire mic is made of stainless steel and is PVD coated, as is the grid that covers the capsule element. This has allowed us to significantly reduce the size of the mic as well as increase its durability. DPA has also added a click function - both tactile and audible - to the mic grid, so you are sure that the grid has been secured properly to the mic housing.
In addition, if you look closely, you might notice that when looking at the microphone housing head on, it resembles the well-known DPA logo grid. The tiny grid holes, combined with the material chosen make this mic extremely robust; able to withstand the tough environments where they are used.
3-point ear grips
The ear grips on the headset consist of amazing technology. Most headsets have either a 1 or 2-point gripping system - resting on top of the ear or below. This headset relies on a 3-point gripping system - adding a support area behind the ear pressing gently inward. This not only makes the headset sit more securely around the head even in jostling situations, it also makes it extremely comfortable to wear even over long periods. Further, the advanced, ergonomic shape of these ear grips conforms to the shape of the head.
90-degree cable management system
The headset has its cable guide directly at the back of the headset frame, so that you can easily organize the cables to run unobtrusively down the back of the performers. The cable guide slides from side to side, so it can be moved out of, for example, the camera view. The special construction also separates the cables from the boom movement, which ensures that cables are not pulled on when the boom is moved. This helps ensure a longer life to the mic cables.
The cable is often the weak spot on these types of mics, but DPA has opted to use the same size cable (1.6mm) as on their 5mm mics. They are extremely rugged, do not become entangled and are equipped with an inner core of Kevlar that withstands rough pulls.
The cable, capsule and boom design, ensure immunity to noisy wireless devices. Headsets are typically connected to a wireless belt pack and DPA offers a comprehensive mix of adapters to suit the many wireless transmitters available. When used with an adapter, the connector is MicroDot but there hardwired terminations to suit the most popular systems from manufacturers such as Shure and Sennheiser. All of these connectors are equipped with a rugged strain relief.
