The DP4018F15 Supercardioid Microphone from DPA features a 6" podium boom and is designed for capturing professional-grade audio. It can be used in venues such as live stage shows, broadcast studios, recording studios, public speaking events, and similar scenarios. When used for voice applications, this microphone has a natural response and provides accurate and clear sound. There is a supercardioid capsule for a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response. The supercardioid shape is also frequency independent, providing an identical sound color on all sides. The microphone's rear lobe is minimized for isolated frequencies without peaks and dips. The DP4018 uses an MMP-F amplifier and has a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. It is powered by 48V of phantom power.
