Non-reflective PVD surface on headset frame, boom, capsule
The 4488 is secure, durable and flexible best used for applications including Theatre, Broadcast, House of Worship and Conferencing.

The 4488 offers an open and natural sound making it ideal for both spoken word and vocal performance applications. It provides excellent off-axis rejection in high-SPL situations. It efficiently suppresses distant sound sources making it perfect for demanding live performance environments where background noise and feedback are concerns.
The new one-size-fits-all Headset is the most advanced construction on the market. It ensures comfort, even during long-term wear, but does so without sacrificing security. Its form grips gently and comfortably around the head and is easily adjustable. The spring mechanisms that grip around the ears are gentle, yet firm enough for you to feel secure during your performance. The Headset can also be customized on-site to suit individual performers for a perfect fit.
The headset frame is made of stainless steel and treated with a Physical Vapor Deposition coating that makes it extremely durable. It can tolerate high temperatures and is resilient against impact and abrasion. The entire mic has a pleasant matte look due to the coating, making the entire headset look small and less obtrusive than other headset solutions.
The boom can be extended or shortened, it can also be pivoted up and down at a fixed point below the ear (no more bending the boom) for even more precise placement. 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 the left side of the frame.
The beige and brown versions of this mic are treated with a surface that mimics the colour of the boom and adds a very distinct expression of the entire headset, However, please note that most often a small pop/windscreen is desirable (included) on a directional headset due to its higher sensitivity to wind and pop noise. This is due to the physics of a directional mic.
