Next-level headset mic

DPA 4466 CORE omnidirectional headset microphone is the most advanced headset microphone – secure, durable and flexible. The 4466 combines DPA's renowned 5㎜ capsules with CORE by DPA technology. This one-size-fits-all headset has a comfortable 3-point grip around the ear and a 90° adjustable cable guide for discreet cable management. The boom length and placement adjusts easily. This omni mic offers clean and transparent sound quality with lots of headroom. The microphone’s sensitivity is 6 mV/Pa. This matches the level of the human voice to the general input sensitivity of most wireless transmitters. When powered correctly, the microphone will be able to handle very high sound pressure levels up to 134㏈ SPL so users can both speak and sing into the mic with no hint of distortion. The max SPL handling is an impressive 144㏈.


  • One-size-fits-all - head sizes and shapes
  • Comfortable 3-point grip - above, below, behind the ear
  • Easily adjustable - frame size, boom length, placement
  • 90° adjustable cable guide - keeps cable out of sight
  • Non-reflective PVD surface on headset frame, boom, capsule
