Legendary Sound - Flexible Earset

DPA Microphones's d:fine™ 4288 CORE Directional Flex (DPA-4288DCFC10E) Earset Microphone (Brown) is ideal for both spoken word and vocal performance applications. It offers accurate and natural voice intelligibility and very high–SPL capabilities — users can both speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion. This mic provides excellent off-axis rejection in high-SPL situations. It efficiently suppresses distant sound sources making it perfect for demanding live performance environments where background noise and feedback are concerns. In high-SPL events, or when feedback is a concern, the 4088 Directional Capsule will tackle these challenges with ease. The bass response is designed for optimal linearity at 2–3 cm (1 in) from the sound source. This means that the bass roll–off will be relatively prominent at a greater distance — a paramount factor when it comes to rejection of background noise and in the fight to avoid feedback. The microphone capsule is also optimized for low distortion as well as humidity resistance.


  • Pristine audio quality
  • Lightweight and flexible
  • Easy mounting to the left or right
  • Minimal visual impact
  • Resistant to humidity

With more than half a century of audio mastery, DPA designs microphones with amazing sound, exceptional consistency, and outstanding durability. Leveraging a history of developing precisely accurate measurement microphones, DPA set about making the clearest, truest pro-audio microphones in the early 1990s. Since 2015, DPA has intensified its focus and research on new product development, leading to advances in concealable miniatures and flexible headsets with minimized distortion and an expanded dynamic range.
