DPA 4088 and 4099P Headband and Piano Microphones


For vocalists looking to have the freedom of a hands-free microphone, the 4088 is a pre-polarised first order, pressure gradient transducer mike hidden in a small and lightweight housing that has been fitted to a unique headband. All but invisible to an audience, the band sits over the ears and closely loops around the nape of the neck. The open, natural sound quality is typically DPA and very impressive, as the 4088 is able to faithfully reproduce all the characteristics of the human voice without in any way tainting the sound and stamping an identifiable mike sound on the performance.

It is just as capable when it comes to eliminating background noise and feedback. The 4099P model has been developed using the highly successful 4099 series and solves the perennial problem of successfully miking-up grand pianos for live performance. The system makes it easy to achieve a high level of isolation on stage, while at the same time providing clean and transparent stereo sound quality with realistic dynamics. The 4099P includes a pair of sensitivity matched 4099 microphones on goosenecks with magnetic mounts; two DAD6001 3-pin XLR adapters; and an integrated windscreen and shock mount system. The versatile magnet mount and flexible gooseneck means that the microphones can be positioned easily at different angles on the piano frame.
