DPA microphones have been given a strong supporting role in the new sci-fi blockbuster, Now You See Me – with its new d:fine Headset Microphones being showcased in major scenes in the film.

Chosen primarily for their aesthetic appeal to the art director, who was looking for a modern microphone that could be seen but not held, the d:fines supposedly provided production sound mixer, Danny Michael, CAS, with the crisp, natural audio he needed.

Forgoing the foam windscreen that typically comes with the d:fine, Michael presented the director with the exposed grill version of the microphone.

“In the case of a microphone, the main focus is always whether the sound is ideal for the purpose for which you’re trying to use it,” Michael explains. “Since I rely on it to do good work for me, I certainly want a microphone that has a good voice quality. In the case of DPA, the answer is always simply ‘yes.’ ”

Now You See Me is thriller that tells the story of an FBI team pitted against “The Four Horsemen,” a group of the world’s greatest illusionists – played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fischer and Dave Franco – who pull of a series of heists against leading businesses around the world during their live performances in cities such as Las Vegas and New Orleans.
