DPA Microphones’s new 6000 series marks the Danish manufacturers first 3mm capsules, which are being added to the d:screet™ Lavalier and d:fine™ Headset Microphone ranges…
Here’s DPA with the details:
Alleroed, Denmark. September 14th 2018: In direct response to feedback from the theatre, film and television industries, DPA Microphones is adding to its d:screet™ and d:fine™ ranges by introducing its smallest ever high end pro audio microphone capsule.
Launching in September 2018, the d:screet CORE 6060 and 6061 Subminiature Microphones and the d:fine CORE 6066 Subminiature Headset Microphone are just three millimetres in diameter – two millimetres smaller than DPA’s existing 4000 series of miniature microphone products. While they may be small, they pack a powerful punch in terms of performance as all three incorporate the company’s recently launched CORE by DPA microphone technology that reduces distortion and increases dynamic range.
Kalle Hvidt Nielsen, DPA’s CEO, is unambiguous about this new 6000 series of products, describing them as ‘without doubt, the best miniature microphones DPA has ever made’.
“Giving the market the most advanced technology and the best sound possible has always been DPA’s philosophy and compared to our existing 4000 series miniature microphones, the 6000 series represents a significant step forward.” He says. “Developing these products has been a massive undertaking and the amount we have learned has really strengthened our already exceptional R&D capabilities. We are proud to serve the market with such great tools.”
In terms of technical specifications, 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 colours will be added at a later stage.
The d:fine 6066 also benefits from a completely redesigned lightweight, one size fits all headset that attaches over the ears for maximum comfort 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 also has a redesigned cable attachment that allows the cable to run down the wearer’s back, so it can’t be seen.
