The DPA 4066 Core Omnidirectional Headset Microphone offers clean and transparent sound quality with lots of headroom. For years, this has been the chosen headset mic for broadcasters as well as theaters on Broadway, as well as in many auditorium and lecture halls. This is due to its pristine sound and durability.

The DPA 4066 Core Omnidirectional Headset Microphone headset construction is unique. You can detach the mic boom from the headset mount to switch it to either the left or right side and then reattach it. Humidity, often an issue in theatrical applications, is not a problem. The DPA 4066 is constructed with a double-vent protection system and a drop stopper on the microphone boom. Also, the materials inside the mic are water resistant. These design elements make it very difficult for the microphone to fail due to humidity. The 4066 Core sensitivity is 6 mV/Pa. This matches the level of the human voice to the general input sensitivity of most wireless transmitters. If powered correctly, the 4066 will be able to handle very high sound pressure levels up to 144 dB SPL before clipping occurs.

Connector Options
All DPA headset microphones ship default with a MicroDot connector, but you have options and flexibility with DPA adapters! You are no longer bound to one wireless system. As circumstances change, you can just switch your adapter, instead of incurring the cost of a completely new microphone. When you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality. DPA's miniature microphones work with all leading wireless mic solutions, such as Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Zaxcom and many more. DPA Microphones’ ingenious adapter system is one of a kind in the industry. It protects your investment in fantastic sound for years to come. Just give your Front End Audio sales rep a call and we will be happy to setup your mic with the adapter or adapters you need.
