CR-8D Headset Microphone

Specifications •• Polar Response •• Frequency Response •• Compare

The CR-8D is a cardioid dual ear headset microphone ideal in applications when there is more than one mic being used, in live performances, and in some recording situations. A cardioid headset microphone will pick up one focused sound from one direction compared to an omni that picks up from several directions. A unique benefit of the CR-8D headset microphone is that the capsule is especially miniaturized and there is no need to force the mic directly in front of the mouth as with other cardioid microphones. The boom of this headset microphone can sit comfortably and effectively at the corner of the mouth so an unobstrusive appearance is easily achieved. Built with our robust "Unbreakable Boom" bendable to 360, the boom length is adjustable as are the earhooks to convert for left or right ear wearing. One user-friendly X-Connector is included with each headset microphone at no additional cost. The smart threaded screw design keeps the headset connector securely in place but is simple to remove and exchange for another X-Connector compatible with any number of wireless systems.

Bendable boom up to 360

The CR-8D is a stellar choice when you need a cardioid headset microphone to pick up sounds predominately from one direction. Our cardioid headset microphone performs best when placed just at the corner of the mouth, which also allows it to maintain its unobtrusive appearance when worn.
