question

im looking for a Replacement Headset Microphone Cable for this microphone and though i find a few on this website, there are several different ones and i'm not sure which is the correct one, also not shown in accessories tab under this mic which is really strange?
Asked by: Samuel A.
This should help with your DPA d:fine cable replacement. The cable you need is B&amp;H part number DPCH16F00. Also as you know DPA uses a Microdot Termination cable on this mic. So if your old Hirose connector is fine you can just reattach it. If not here is the B&amp;H part number to the microdot Hirose you will need. DPDAD6033

question

The picture shows a left side in-ear monitor (well, actually one in both ears). But, is it possible to only do this in the Right ear? Our pastor has a bad ear on the left side, and the one-monitor model seems to be on the left side.
Asked by: Patrick D.
It is no problem to go to the right ear. The wire that connects the 2 ear hooks swivel along with the boom so you can easily make it go to either side of the head.
