DPA CORE 6066 Omni Headset
The capsule of the DPA CORE 6066 Omni Headset is just 3 mm (0.12 in) in diameter, but packs the audio power of larger, award-winning DPA mics. Despite its small size, it is abundant in clarity, consistency and durability – three qualities that truly matter. By shrinking our newly introduced CORE by DPA technology, we ensure you don’t have to compromise on sound to focus on aesthetics.
- Amazing 3 mm CORE by DPA capsules technology
- Renowned DPA sound in a 60% smaller capsule
- One-size-fits-all, headset fits securely and comfortably
- 2-way adjustable, non-reflective boom with locking system
- Unique, comfortable 3-point gripping system above, below and behind the ear
- New 90° cable management constructed to guide the cable and minimize cable breaks
Beyond this minimized size and maximized sound potential, these mics also sport a completely redesigned, lightweight, one-size-fits-all headset that attaches over the ears for maximum comfort. 3-point ear grips with spring mechanisms help grip below the ears and to the side of the head for added security. A 2-way adjustable boom system (length and height) with an anti-rotate mechanism makes this new headset very easy to fit. A new 90° cable management system safeguards the cable and directs it down the wearer’s back, where it can’t be seen.
Between the sound quality and the comfort, once you try it we’re sure you’ll never want to wear another headset mic solution.
The CORE Subminiatures, are IP58 certified. This durability is achieved through a number of defense mechanisms:
- Water-repellant nano-coating of the cover and housing
- Hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic
- Dual gold plating of the diaphragm

Shrinking CORE into a 3 mm
CORE by DPA is a powerful new technology at the heart of our miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion. From a whisper to a scream, you will experience increased clarity and openness.
Prior to CORE, the d:fine™ 4066 Series contained the most clear, consistent and robust headset mics you could find on the market. These mics are known for working across a wide dynamic range as well as exhibiting low distortion across all SPLs.
DPA have taken the amazing CORE technology and shrunk it down to fit into our 3 mm (0.12 in) subminiature mics. This means that, despite their small size, the performance of the d:fine™ 6066 CORE Headset Series is comparable to the 5 mm (0.20 in) miniature capsules that are beloved around the globe.
These sub-miniatures have a lower noise floor than any other 3 mm (0.12 in) capsule on the market and they are better able to capture high sound pressure levels without distortion as well. In terms of technical specifications, the d:fine™ 6066 has a noise floor of only 26 dB(A), which is fully comparable to the 5 mm (0.20 in) DPA miniature capsule.
It’s the only 3 mm (0.12 in) mic that gives you the DPA sonic quality that you know and love.
2-way adjustable boom
The boom is 130 mm long but can easily be adjusted so that it sits perfectly at the corner of the performer’s smile (the optimal placement of a headworn mic). Not only can the boom be extended / shortened, it can be pivoted up and down at a fixed point below the ear (no more bending the boom). An anti-rotating mechanism designed into the boom shape, prevents it from rotating. A sliding lock system ensures that the boom is locked into the desired position. The entire boom can be detached at a point below the ear and moved from the right to left side of the frame.
3-point ear grips
The ear grips on our new headset consist of some amazing technology. Most headsets have either a 1- or 2-point gripping system – resting on top of the ear or (sometimes) gripping below the ear. This headset relies on a 3-point gripping system – adding a support area behind the ear pressing gently inward.
This not only makes the headset sit more securely around the head even in jostling situations, it also makes it extremely comfortable to wear even over long periods. Furthermore, the advanced, ergonomic shape of these ear grips conforms to the shape of the head.
