The DuraPlex DH5 omnidirectional headset microphone is ideal for both speech and performance applications that require durability and minimal visibility. The bendable lightweight headset features switchable boom mounting placement and a neutral clear design to be used with any DH5 color variant. The certified IP57 rated headset can withstand challenging conditions involving sweat and dust for use in theater, corporate events, and TV broadcast applications. Each microphone is supplied with a storage pouch, single tie clip, vocal presence frequency response cap, snap fit windscreen, foam windscreen, and TA4F threaded adapter.
The DuraPlex omnidirectional microphone has been IP57 dust-protected, waterproof rated by extensive internal tests, so you can clean it using distilled water and a mild detergent when necessary.
