SERIES8Cardioid Headset Microphone
Model No: CR-8D
The CR-8D is a cardioid dual ear headset microphone ideal in applications when there is more than one mic being used in close proximity, in live performances, and in some recording situations where feedback may be an issue. A cardioid headset microphone will pick up one focused sound from one direction compared to an omni that picks up from several directions.
Precise Microphone Placement
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. The boom of this headset microphone can sit comfortably and effectively at the corner of the mouth for an unobstrusive appearance. 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.

SERIES8 microphones are equipped with an interchangeable X-Connector, offering a rapid and inexpensive way to quickly change the microphone wireless termination from one brand to another.
Each cardioid microphone comes with one small and one large size windscreen of matching microphone color. Windscreens help reduce exposure to the element from clothing noise, gusts of wind, and dust particles.
Each microphone is accompanied by a cable clip. This traditional style alligator clip helps provide strain relief to the microphone so that movement of the boom is minimized to ensure a consistent audio level.
Look Who's Singing our Praises
“What sold me on the Point Source mic that is also very important is the extendable length on the boom that allows me a lot of placement choices."
“We found the CR-8D headsets to give the least coloration and the highest gain before feedback. Its sound is much more natural after feedback corrections."
