Buena Park, CA – May 2009… Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician and audio/video professional, and distributor of Da-Cappo Micro Microphones throughout the Americas, is pleased to announce the introduction of the Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone. Ideal for use where the interfacing wireless microphone system remains constant, the new DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone offers the same performance attributes of the original DA12, but with the added convenience of never having to worry about misplacing the cable and adaptor.
The new Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone features a -45 dB sensitivity that is ideal for use with Lectrosonics, Sennheiser Evolution and SK50 Series, and Shure wireless transmitters. Further, the -45 dB sensitivity is becoming the preferred choice for a wide range of audio applications requiring wireless microphones. The perfect choice for theatrical use, the Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired features a longer, 6-foot carbon Kevlar cable for easy concealment within costumes and one of four connectors designed to mate with the aforementioned wireless transmitter systems. In addition to theatrical applications, these microphones are the perfect choice for broadcast and cinema.
Like the original DA12, the new Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone utilizes Da-Cappo’s water-resistant, European designed 2.5 mm diameter Omni-directional capsule that delivers natural sounding, full 20 Hz – 20 kHz frequency response with a rich low end, articulate midrange, and pristine, high frequency performance. The capsule is water resistant and, hence, impervious to perspiration or rain—making these microphones ideal for performers and broadcasters who, for example, must routinely endure the heat generated by stage lighting systems.
The Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone features a hypoallergenic cushion designed to ensure long wearing-comfort. This cushion conceals a flexible, sprung-steel mechanism that may easily be adjusted to fit ears of all sizes. The new DA12 Hardwired ships with a lavaliere style mic clip to secure the cable to one’s collar behind the head and a zippered leatherette microphone case that conveniently and securely stores the microphone, its cable, and the adaptor. A pop filter is also included.
Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology’s National Marketing Manager, commented on the new Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone. “The new DA12 Hardwired delivers the stunning audio performance of the original DA12 while offering simplified use for those who plan on using the microphone with a single brand of wireless transmitter,” said Pusey. “By offering a hardwired version, Da-Cappo makes it that much easier to use this type of microphone as it minimizes the possibility of losing parts required for interfacing with different transmitters. For those customers who plan on using a headworn microphone with a single brand of wireless transmitter, the new DA12 Hardwired is a true plug and play solution.”
The new Da-Cappo DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone is available now. Pricing for all variants (beige and black) of the DA12 Hardwired Earset Microphone is MSRP $530.
