This boom is a part of the modular d:fine™ Slim Directional Headset Microphone.
The directional characteristics of the microphone is indicated on the flat microphone head with ˄ for directional. This marking should always point towards the mouth.
For discreet placement, you can bend the microphone boom slightly so that the capsule is as close to the cheek as possible. Do not hold the capsule while bending; bend the wire boom, making a smooth curve with your thumb to best fit the profile of the face. To change sides, simply click the boom out of the clips and switch it over to the other side.
Mount a directional mic 2 – 3 cm (1 in) from the corner of the mouth to ensure optimal sound quality compared to an omnidirectional mic that can be placed further away from the mouth.
