DPA Microphones Core 4188 Overview

The brown d:fine Core 4188 Slim Directional Flex Headset Mic, 120mm Boom with 1/8" Mini Jack from DPA combines the sound of the d:fine 4088 directional capsule and Core amplifier in a lightweight and flexible two-ear headset. It can be used when miking needs to be fast, easy, and where the person wearing the microphone won't feel the presence of it such as in conference, speech, and active live performance applications.

The cardioid polar patterned Core 4188 gets a 14 dB increase in dynamic range than the Legacy version and is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably. It easily adjusts to fit any ear size and head shape while at the same time, it mounts securely and is hardly visible. By rotating the boom and the ear hook, the microphone can be used on either the left or the right ear. In addition, the connector splits the cable from the microphone boom allowing you to swap broken cables and / or wireless connectors quickly. Finally, it includes a makeup filter, four windscreens, ID rings with cover, and a clothing clip.

Exceptional mic

It’s hard to find many reviews of headset mics, but I have to say that all the positive things I heard about the DPA d:fine line are true. The 4188 sounds amazing and especially compared the Crown CM311 and the cheaper Shure WH20 models I’ve owned. The CM311 was so uncomfortable and cumbersome and I could never dial in my sound to get close to studio quality. This is the first time I’ve actually been happy with the sound and feels like it rivals my studio mics. Love the light weight and inconspicuous appearance. I got the 120mm boom and was worried about the length but it turned out to be perfect for getting the mic to the corner of my mouth.
