The days of broadcast hosts having to fiddle with two parallel systems – one for the mic and one for in-ear communication – are over. Welcome to fantastically natural sound reproduction from our proprietary capsule, crystal-clear in-ear communication, great fit and integrated convenience – all in one good-looking headset.

The d:fine™ 88 In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone, Directional combines the legendary sound of the 4088 Directional Capsule with the lightweight and flexible d:fine™ Headset system. Staying true to the DPA legacy, d:fine™ 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.

Like all of the microphones in the range, the d:fine™ 88 In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone, Directional offers accurate, natural voice intelligibility and very high SPL capabilities. Users can both speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion. The microphone capsule is also optimized for low distortion as well as humidity resistance.

Setting New Standards For The Broadcast Industry

Already the worldwide leader in headset mics for theater and broadcast applications, the d:fine™ In-Ear Broadcast Series now adds an integrated in-ear monitor to create a broadcast and communication headset with outstanding acoustic performance and feather-light comfort.

The in-ear drivers allow no audio leakage to the microphone capsule. They are easily driven due to their high sensitivity. Two sizes of ear-pads are included to fit most ears.

The cable steer, located at the headset mount, controls the cable run down the neck. You can easily adjust the headset mount size.

These innovative headsets – the first of their kind – are designed for broadcast professionals who insist on superior voice reproduction without compromising on simple setup, minimalistic form factor and daylong comfort.

Choose The Mic That Best Meets Your Needs

The d:fine™ 88 In-Ear Broadcast Headset Microphone, Directional are available in a range of variants, colors and boom lengths:

  • Single-Ear Mount, Single In-Ear: Easiest to fit. Leaves the smallest visual footprint.
  • Dual-Ear Mount, Single In-Ear: Even better mount stability. You can keep one ear open to what’s happening around you.
  • Dual-Ear Mount, Dual In-Ear: Allows for two-channel monitoring from producers or for stage monitoring. A great choice for theatre actors and singers.

*Individual microphone booms and cables are available for the d:fine™ In-Ear Broadcast Series. The modular nature of the mics let you easily choose the best mic/headset combination for your specific needs. Contact your local distributor for other variations and other colors.

Flexible Adapter System

The adapters for wireless systems give you flexible, simple and affordable possibilities. 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 whole new microphone. And when you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality.

The d:fine™, d:screet™ and d:vote™ series of 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.
