DPA Microphones d:screet Core 4062 Overview

The beige DPA 4062 CORE is a miniature, moisture-resistant lavalier microphone designed for use with wireless systems for broadcast, performance, and theatrical applications. The electret-condenser capsule offers an extremely low sensitivity setting that allows it to handle very loud vocalists, performers, and instruments. The mic delivers crisp, clear, and intelligible audio, while the rugged yet unobtrusive design is well suited to the demands of professional live stage work and presentations.

This version of the 4062 uses DPA's CORE technology to deliver a 16 dB increase in dynamic range and a 16 dB reduction in noise over the 4062 Legacy model. The mic includes two interchangeable capsule-protection grids that alter the sonic character of the microphone. The High-Boost Grid creates a peak at 12 kHz, helpful for chest placement, while the Soft-Boost Grid offers a subtle boost between 8 to 20 kHz, lightly enhancing signal presence to ensure clarity.

With an SPL rating of 154 dB, the microphone is more than capable of handling very loud speakers, vocalists, and presenters. The 4062 can even be used to effectively mic talent during high-volume sporting events such as auto racing where loud engine noise would cause distortion in many other lavs. The mic can also be used very effectively to capture loud instruments including brass, drums, and percussion—making it a flexible tool for houses of worship and live event productions. The 4062 CORE is powered by 5 to 10V plug-in power from a wireless transmitter and features a modular design using a Microdot output connector. Separately available adapters allow you to use the mic with a wide variety of transmitters.

Modular System Featuring Microdot Connector

Compatible Wireless Transmitters

  • Various: Works with various transmitters via a compatible adapter (available separately).
  • The modular design allows you to adapt the 4062's Microdot connector to a wide variety of transmitters simply by purchasing the compatible adapter—saving you the expense of buying another microphone.

Optional XLR Adapter for Wired Applications

The DAD6001 Microdot to 3-pin XLR adapter (available separately) allows you to power the 4062 from 12 to 48V phantom power for wired applications.

A Reliable, Broadcast-Quality Lavalier

Miniature Mic with a Crisp, Clear Sound

The 4062 CORE features a 5.4mm capsule that enables the microphone to be inconspicuous and easily disguised in clothing or costumes. The vertical diaphragm design offers a clear and natural sound optimized for the human voice.

Extremely Low Sensitivity for Very Loud Vocals, Speech, and Instruments

The 4062 CORE features a capsule designed for extremely loud speech and vocal performances at levels up to 154 dB SPL before clipping. This makes the mic well suited to concealment in clothing and costumes during loud sporting and entertainment events. The mic's very low sensitivity is well suited to close-miking loud instruments including brass and drums.

Two Boost Grids Included to Tailor High Frequencies

The pre-fitted Soft-Boost Grid gives a 3 dB soft boost at 8 to 20 kHz range. It should be used when the microphone is mounted on the performer's head as well as in most other applications where you need a natural-sounding mic. Alternatively, the High-Boost Grid introduces a 10 dB boost around 12 kHz for applications where chest placement is preferred. Both grids are made of tough and scratch-resistant anodized stainless steel, allowing them to be detached and cleaned.

Omnidirectional Polar Pattern

The forgiving omnidirectional pickup pattern captures sound from all around the mic and provides a consistent frequency response, even for off-axis sound. This helps to supply clear, intelligible speech and vocals, even when the talent turns away from the microphone.

Tough, Moisture-Resistant Construction

Engineered with a double-vent protection system, the 4062 is certified IP58 for dust and moisture resistance. The rugged 5.9' cable is built with Kevlar strain relief to survive the constant twists, bends, and pulls that are part of everyday use in harsh environments.

Additional Options

This version of the DPA 4062 CORE does not include mounts, windscreens, or clips; they are available separately.

  • The SCM0032-B 2-Way Dual Clip allows you to mount two lavs for broadcasting.
  • The SCM0013-B 4-Way Clip offers a variety of flexible positioning choices for up, down, left, and right mounting.
  • To hide the mic, the DMM0021 Concealer attaches safely and securely to clothing and costumes and is designed to resist clothing and rustling noise.
  • Foam windscreens to reduce breath and plosive noises are available in multiple colors choices to match clothing.
