Achieve immersive and ultrarealistic sound capture for your online content, film and video productions, and podcasts with the black DPA 4560 CORE binaural headset microphone. This moisture-resistant headset mic features two handpicked 4060 miniature omnidirectional microphones attached to two ear hooks for pristine audio quality, low noise, and discreet placement. Both lightweight and flexible, the headset adjusts to any ear size and head shape.

With an SPL rating of 134 dB, the microphone is more than capable of handling anything from dialogue to ambient sounds. The mic can also be used very effectively to capture instruments, making it a flexible tool for cutting-edge music productions. The 4560 CORE is powered by 5 to 10V plug-in power from wireless transmitters and features a modular design using two color-coded Microdot output connectors. The mic is compatible with various wireless microphone transmitters via separately available adapters.

Immersive Sound
With immersive sound being an expanding market, there are many possible uses for the 4560 CORE binaural headset microphone. The 4560 is an appealing solution for applications such as sound system documentation, soundscape analysis, sound quality assessment as well as sound for theatrical productions, gaming, and more.

Online media including Facebook, Google, and others who are making an effort to create more appealing products, including immersive sound could benefit from binaural recording. Film recordists are using binaural techniques to gather content they can use for atmospheric sounds. In addition, podcasts using the binaural technique can provide content that is much more immersive and alive compared to traditional techniques.
Binaural Recording
The binaural recording technique builds on the principle of placing microphones on a human's head. The microphones' position is either just outside each ear canal or at the bottom of the ear canal close to the eardrum. When you reproduce the recording and listen with headphones, the image is very much similar to "being there."

Binaural recordings differ from more well-known stereo techniques because binaural uses two omnidirectional mics positioned close together (as if in a listener's ears) to replicate the sound pickup of the human ear. Stereo on the other hand, use cardioid microphones with a larger space between them.
Handpicked Stereo Pair
The 4560 is made from a handpicked stereo pair of 4060 miniature omnidirectional microphones. With the use of the head and ears as natural spacers/shadows and reflectors, it is possible to create a sonic 3D print of the sound around you. This is based on the theory of the HRTF, which also means that the recorded material must be listened to via headphones or converted to a relevant 3D format that includes the height information.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The 4060 CORE miniature omnidirectional microphones in this headset exhibit an exceptionally accurate omnidirectional pattern and therefore do not need to be aimed directly at the sound source to achieve quality pickup. This pattern also makes it less sensitive to handling noise as well as pop and wind noise. These 4060s handle sound pressure levels up to 134 dB before clipping occurs. This mic is well suited for applications where the sound source is more remote or damped and you need to have a good balance of signal versus noise.
Adjustable Headset
The two 4060 mics are mounted on a flexible, unobtrusive headset, which is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably. The headset adjusts easily to fit any ear size as well as head shape.
Foam Windscreens
Two sizes of foam windscreens are supplied with the 4560 to secure the mics' position in the ears and to offer extra damping of wind noise.
Moisture Resistance
IP58 certified, this headset microphone is resistant to high levels of humidity and water. For optimal performance, the microphone capsule should be kept dry.
