DPA d:sign™ 4098 Supercardioid Ceiling Microphones

A complete, supercardioid ceiling microphone solution, which is ideal for mounting from the ceiling of conferences venues, meeting rooms, board rooms and other small to mid-sized spaces.

The Microphone Base fits most electrical back boxes and secures ease of installation. Furthermore, the great off-axis response and the physics of sound level vs distance, makes it possible to cover a small to mid-size room with only one or a few microphones. Read more about microphones in installed systems.

Combined with d:screet™ 4098

With very low noise and a high sensitivity, d:screet™  Ceiling Microphones offer the most clear, transparent, and natural sound available on the miniature mic market. They ensure maximum speech intelligibility regardless of the acoustical environment. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, they sound great in any environment.

The Microphone Base is made specifically to work with the d:screet™ 4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphone. It has an elegant yet unobtrusive design with a white, non-reflective surface and integrated shock mount. The audio cables are an integral part of the Microphone Base unit.


  • Outstanding audio quality
  • Slim, elegant Scandinavian design
  • Highly directional – very isolated
  • High rejection of radio frequency interference
  • Meets the needs of architects, AV consultants, system integrators and installing electricians
