The Da-Cappo DA12 Cardioid Earset Microphone, from Hosa Technology, features a European designed and built capsule with a cardioid polar pattern, for applications where high SPL (sound pressure level) monitoring would severely restrict gain before feedback.

The capsule in the new DA12 Cardioid incorporates a sensitivity rating of -51 dB and a maximum SPL rating of 130 dB—making it well suited for vocalists who work in loud performance surroundings. The DA12 Cardioid provides excellent off-axis rejection by using a front-facing capsule engineered to be positioned at the corner of the performer’s mouth. As a cardioid polar pattern offers maximum rejection at the rear of the capsule, the new DA12 Cardioid makes a great choice for performers who might otherwise not be able to achieve the desired level due to feedback caused by floor monitors angled directly at them. The new DA12 Cardioid Earset Microphone achieves performance results comparable to side-address microphones costing much more.

The Da-Cappo DA12 Cardioid features a hypoallergenic cushion designed to ensure long wearing-comfort. This cushion conceals a flexible, sprung-steel mechanism that may easily be adjusted to fit ears of all sizes. Similarly, the DA12 Cardioid features the same adjustable microphone boom and modular cable. The DA12 Cardioid is available in coffee, beige, or black. System packages include a lavaliere style mic clip to secure the cable to one’s collar behind the head, a zippered leatherette microphone case, a cable, a cable clip, and a pop filter. A wireless adaptor is sold separately. MSRP: $477.
