Rent for $20.00 per day

SKU: R-DPA-20235 Categories: , ,


The DPA 4088F offers an open and natural sound making it ideal for both spoken word and vocal performance applications.It also provides excellent off-axis rejection in high-SPL situations. The microphone efficiently suppresses distant sound sources making it perfect for demanding live performance environments where background noise and feedback are concerns.


• Very Lightweight and virtually invisible on stage.
• Cardiod pickup pattern makes the microphone more directional than other headset microphones for good off axis rejection of unwanted sounds.
