DPA d:screet CORE 6060 Subminiature Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone
The new DPA d:screet 6060 Subminiature Microphone is just 3 mm (0.12 in) in size but contains the audio power of the larger range of DPA mics.
Precision engineering and miniscule optimizations of the capsule technology have created a subminiature that currently outperforms all other mics in their class. The subminiatures have the lowest noise floor compared to any other 3 mm capsule on the market and are capable of capturing high sound pressure levels without distortion.
- Amazing 3 mm CORE capsule technology
- Renowned DPA sound in a 60% smaller package
- Stainless steel, PVD coated mic housing
- Modular adapter system fits most professional wireless systems
Shrinking CORE into a 3 mm
CORE by DPA is a powerful new technology at the heart of our miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion. From a whisper to a scream, you will experience increased clarity and openness.
Now we've taken the amazing CORE technology and shrunk it down to fit into our (0.12 in) subminiature mics. This means that, despite their small size, the performance of the d:screet™ 6060 CORE Subminiature Series is fully comparable to the 5 mm (0.20 in) miniature capsules that are beloved around the globe. These subminiatures have a lower noise floor than any other 3 mm (0.12 in) capsule on the market and they are better able to capture high sound pressure levels without distortion as well. In terms of technical specifications, the d:screet™ 6061 has a noise floor of only 26 dB(A), which is on par with the 5 mm (0.20 in) DPA miniature capsules.
Advanced new mic design
This tiny capsule has a cap that can be removed for cleaning and should be firmly reattached to the mic body with a firm click that can both be felt and heard. The supplied cap corresponds in its nature to the low-boost grid of the 5 mm (0.20 in) versions. Both the mic itself plus the cap are made of stainless steel and treated with a Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating that makes it extremely durable: able to tolerate high temperatures, resilient against impacts and resistant to abrasion. The entire mic has a pleasant matte look due to the coating making the entire set-up look smaller and less obtrusive
The cable is often the weak spot on these types of mics, so DPA have opted to use the same size cable (Ø 1.6 mm (0.06 in)) and the same rugged cable relief as on their 5 mm (0.20 in) mics. The cables are extremely durable, do not become entangled and are equipped with an inner core made of Kevlar that withstands rough pulls.
The cable and capsule design ensure immunity to noisy wireless devices. These mics are typically connected to a wireless belt pack and there is a comprehensive mix of adapters to suit the many wireless transmitters available. When used with an adapter, the connector is by default, MicroDot but there are also hardwired termination options to suit the most popular systems from manufactures such as Shure and Sennheiser. All of the available connectors are equipped with a rugged strain relief.
It’s the only 3 mm (0.12 in) mic that gives you the DPA sonic quality that you know and love.
