DPA 4288-DC-F-F00-LE
dfine™CORE Cardioid Earset Mic, MicroDot Connector, Beige

OUR PART #  4288-DC-F-F00-LE


One of the most clear, consistent, and robust miniature mics you'll find on the market, the 4288-DC-F-F00-LE from DPA Microphones is a cardioid earset mic that's part of their d:fine 4088 Series. However, this particular unit features DPA's recently-developed CORE technology, adding a little more performance to an already exemplary 4088 series. Additionally, this particular model comes equipped with a MicroDot connector, allowing versatile connection options via DPA's flexible adapter system, which enables compatibility with 3rd-party wireless systems on the market. This model comes with a 120mm (3.9") boom which accommodates varying applications and head sizes, and is colored beige.

Note: to complete this microphone setup, you'll need to add a MicroDot-compatible adapter (sold separately). Please refer to items located under the "ACCESSORIES" tab above, or if necessary, contact your Sales Pro for more information.

Its cardioid, directional pickup pattern delivers exceptional off-axis rejection in high-SPL situations, efficiently suppressing distant sound sources, and making it ideal for demanding live performance situations where feedback and background noise are concerns.

The earset type is the fastest to put on and quite often the best choice when miking needs to be quick and easy – e.g.: for conference use. The mic capsule is a pre-polarized first-order pressure-gradient transducer hidden in a small and lightweight housing. Its sleek, elegant design puts it among the most invisible head-worn cardioid microphones in the world, and it's mountable on either the right or left side just by by simply rotating the boom and ear hook.

DPA CORE Technology vs Legacy
One of the most clear, consistent, and potent miniature mic series available, the legacy d:fine 4088 is well-known for working across a wide dynamic range as well as delivering low distortion across all SPLs. And now, CORE technology enables you to squeeze even more performance out of your mics with an additional 14 dB THD and Dynamic range:

  • Total harmonic distortion: < 1% THD up to 137 dB SPL peak
  • Dynamic range, typical: 111 dB
  • Increased dynamic range = Increased workable range
  • Increased dynamic range = Less vulnerable to overload

CORE technology is a powerful technology at the heart of select DPA miniature microphones. It offers minimized distortion; from a whisper to a scream, you'll experience increased clarity and openness. So users will get more flexibility, because a wider dynamic range enables a single mic to capture a wider range of sounds and in more varied applications. Additionally, CORE microphones deliver water and moisture resistance through nano coating and hermetic sealing of the sensitive internal electronics.
