DPA Delivers Tiniest Ever Microphone Capsules
DPA Microphones is adding to its d:screet and d:fine ranges by introducing its smallest ever high end pro audio microphone capsule. The d:screet CORE 6060 and 6061 Subminiature Microphones and the d:fine CORE 6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone are three millimeters in diameter — two millimeters smaller than DPA’s existing 4000 series of miniature microphone products.
All three 6000 series capsules are omnidirectional and have a frequency range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz. The d:screet 6060 lavalier has a noise floor of only 24 dB(A), while the d:screet 6061 lavalier and d:fine 6066 headset have noise floors of only 26 dB(A). This is similar to the company’s existing 4000 series miniature mics. All three capsules are available in black and beige and more colors will be added at a later stage.
The d:fine 6066 has a redesigned one size fits all headset that attaches over the ears and has a spring mechanism to help it grip below the ears and to the side of the head for added security. With a fully adjustable boom, this new headset is very easy to fit and has a redesigned cable attachment that allows the cable to run down the wearer’s back, so it can’t be seen.
DPA’s new Subminiature Microphones will officially be available in November and are here.
