Based on the design of the company’s groundbreaking 6066 Subminiature Headsets, the new 4466 CORE Omnidirectional and 4488 CORE Directional Headset Microphones feature the brand’s popular 5mm round microphone capsule.

With a one-size-fits-all design and adjustable boom height and length, the 4466 and 4488 headsets accommodate all head shapes and sizes.

Its three-point gripping system (above, below and behind the ear) ensures a greater level of security, while the flexible ear hooks provide continued comfort during extended use. 

The new headsets feature interchangeable cable and boom options with a 90-degree cable management guide at the neck, while the headset frame, boom, and capsule have a non-reflective surface. 

The 4466 and 4488 are available in the company’s standard black and beige options, as well as the recently added brown version.

Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s supercardioid Choir Microphone, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone has been optimised to pick up speech from a distance.

It is available to purchase with a compatible interview kit that includes a lightweight boom pole, a windjammer, a shoe mount, and the brand’s MicroDot cable and transmitter plate.
