DPA Microphones Core 6060 Overview

The beige DPA 6060 CORE is a subminiature, moisture-resistant lavalier microphone designed for use with wireless systems for broadcast, performance, and theatrical applications. The tiny, 3mm electret-condenser capsule delivers crisp, clear, and intelligible speech, while being easy to hide in clothing or costumes, making the mic well suited to the demands of professional presentations, theater, and live stage work as well as TV, film, and video productions.

The 6060 shrinks DPA's CORE technology down to a 60% smaller size that still delivers extended dynamic range and extremely low self noise for outstanding sound quality. An included capsule protection grid protects the mic element and supplies a subtle 4 dB soft boost between 8 to 20 kHz, lightly enhancing signal presence to ensure clarity. The cap can be removed for cleaning and attaches to the mic with a firm click that can be felt and heard.

With an SPL rating of 134 dB, the microphone is more than capable of handling most standard speakers, vocalists, and presenters. The 6060 CORE is powered by 5 to 10V plug-in power from a wireless transmitter and features unterminated (pigtail) leads, allowing you to wire the mic for a compatible transmitter or device using the connector of your choice (available separately).

Unterminated (No Connector)
Customizable Wiring
  • Pigtail: This version of the mic features unterminated pigtail leads, allowing for custom wiring.
  • The microphone can be wired to the connector of your choice (available separately) to work with wireless transmitters that are equipped to supply 5 to 10 VDC to power the electret-condenser capsule.
An Easily Concealed Subminiature Microphone Solution
A Crisp, Clear Sound for Professional Applications
Despite the small size, the diaphragm design offers a clean and natural sound optimized for the human voice. The 6060 CORE features a 3mm capsule that is fully comparable to DPA's larger microphones but allows it to be even more inconspicuous and easily disguised in clothing or costumes. The entire mic has a pleasant matte finish for a smaller and less obtrusive appearance.
Soft Boost Grid Included
The pre-fitted protection cap gives a 4 dB soft boost in the 8 to 20 kHz range for added clarity and can be detached for cleaning.
Normal Headroom for Standard Speech
The 6060 CORE features a sensitive capsule designed for standard speech and vocal applications at levels up to 134 dB SPL before clipping.
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.
Reliable Performance
Both the mic and its protection cap are made of durable stainless steel and treated with a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating that allows it to tolerate high temperatures and makes it impact resilient and abrasion resistant.
Tough, Moisture-Resistant Construction
The 6060 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 6060 CORE does not include windscreens or clips; they are available separately.

  • The SCM0034-B 8-Way Double Clip allows you to mount two lavs for broadcasting.
  • The SCM0030-B 8-Way Clip offers a variety of flexible positioning choices for mounting a single lavalier mic.
  • Foam windscreens to reduce breath and plosive noises are available in multiple colors choices to match clothing.

Is there a Sony version of this microphone? I don't see any listing for Sony. I understand that the Sony wireless mic's have a different pin configuration for power.
Asked by: Scott
What you could do is get the DPA Microphones 6060 CORE Subminiature Normal Sensitivity Omni Lavalier Microphone - Black (B&H # DP6060OCUB00) with a Microdot connector, not packaged with any adapter, then purchase the compatible Sony adapter separately. For the Sony adapter, you can use the DPA Microphones DAD6019 Microdot to 1/8" Mini Connector for Sony Transmitters (B&H # DPDAD6019) or the Deity Microphones DA35S Microdot to Locking 3.5mm Adapter for Sony Transmitters (B&H # DEKSMDTDA35S). The DPA adapter is made in Denmark and the Deity adapter is made in China. Both adapters will work to enable compatibility with a Sony transmitter. When purchased separately, the 6060 CORE with the Microdot connector and DPA's Microdot adapter for Sony come out to the same price as the 6060 CORE that comes packaged with the Sennheiser adapter.

Is this just the 6060 w a microdot and the sennheiser adapter or is the sennheiser jack hardwired
Asked by: Patrick
According to the model # 6060-OC-U-B34, it is a hardwired 3.5mm Sennheiser connector, not a microdot connector with a separate Sennheiser adapter.
