DPA Microphones 4288-DC-F-F10-LE d:fine™ CORE
Cardioid Earset Mic, TA4F Mini-XLR Adapter, Beige

OUR PART #  4288-DC-F-F10-LE


A member of DPA Microphones' d:fine 4088 lineup, the 4288-DC-F-F10-LE is a cardioid earset (single ear) mic that features one of the most clear, consistent, and robust miniature mics you'll find on the market. However, this particular model features DPA's CORE technology (see below) which adds a bit more performance to the already exemplary 4088 lineup. Plus, it also comes with a TA-4F Mini-XLR connector, compatible with Shure U1, UR1, UT1, SC1, SLX1, ULX1, TOA WM4300, PGX1, Line 6 XD-V70L - all sold separately.

This microphone's cardioid, directional polar pickup pattern offers remarkable off-axis rejection in high-SPL situations, with efficient suppression of distant sound sources, all making it ideal for demanding live performance situations where feedback and background noise are concerns.

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. The earset type mic 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.

DPA CORE Technology vs Legacy
One of the most clear, consistent, and potent miniature mic series available, the legacy d:fine 4088 is renowned for working across a wide dynamic range as well as delivering low distortion across all SPLs. 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.
