DPA Introduces 4560 CORE Binaural Headset Microphone

DPA has launched the 4560 CORE Binaural Headset Microphone that captures — in real time — exactly what each ear is hearing so that those listening on headphones can experience full immersive sound.

DPA said the binaural qualities also appeal to other applications such as sound system documentation, soundscape analysis, sound quality assessment and sound for theatrical productions or gaming.

Jazz and classical musicians have also seen the potential in this mic: recording the sound from the performers’ perspective instead of the audience’s is a completely new way of sharing the artists’ sound experience. The result is an ultimate surround experience.

At the heart of DPA’s new 4560 CORE Binaural Headset is a pair of 4060 CORE Miniature Microphones mounted on two ear hooks and sitting just outside the user’s ear canal (like a pair of earbuds).

This makes it possible to directly capture (1:1) the sound heard by the person making the recording. The ear hooks are attached to a flexible headset that is simple to fit, comfortable to wear and easily adjusted to suit the dimensions of each individual head. Foam screens are supplied with the microphones to secure their position and offer damping of wind noise.
