The 4488 CORE Directional Headset Microphone combines DPA’s renowned 5 mm capsules with CORE by DPA technology and the Red Dot award-winning headset.

These are the most advanced headsets – secure, durable and flexible – for segments including: theatre, broadcast, house of worship and conferencing.

The 4488 CORE Directional Headset Microphone offers an open and natural sound making it ideal for both spoken word and vocal performance applications. It provides excellent off-axis rejection in high-SPL situations. It efficiently suppresses distant sound sources making it perfect for demanding live performance environments where background noise and feedback are concerns. The bass response is designed for optimal linearity at 2-3 cm (1 inch) from the sound source. This means that the bass roll-off will be relatively prominent at a greater distance - a paramount factor when it comes to rejection of background noise and in the fight to avoid feedback.
