DPA Microphones' 4088 cardioid headband microphone
DPA Microphones will debut its new cardioid headband microphone — the DPA 4088 — at AES 2004 in October.
The capsule is a pre-polarized first order pressure gradient transducer, hidden in small and lightweight housing with dimensions just slightly larger than omni capsules. The low frequency response is designed for optimal linearity at 1 to 1.5 inches distance from the sound source. The result is a bass roll-off that will be relatively prominent at a small distance (in practice no response under 1kHz at only 20 inches). The 4088 offers a tremendous amount of gain before feedback without losing its clarity and definition.
