DPA Microphones 4004 overview

  • 1Description

The 4004 Reference Microphone from DPA is a high-performance condenser microphone with maximum sound pressure level (SPL) handling and dynamic range during close capturing applications. The high SPL and dynamic range capabilities coupled with a wide linear frequency response of 10 Hz to 40 kHz result in accurate, transparent signal reproduction of signals that are rich in transients. There is a dynamic range of 124 dB from the noise floor to 1% THD and an extended headroom of 20 dB up to clipping level due to the hi-voltage powering system. The 4004 Reference Microphone can accurately achieve close range capturing of drums, percussion, brass, and guitar cabinets without noise and distortion.

130V phantom power operation results in a sensitive capsule for maximum results at close or far proximity
Designed for accurate, transparent reproduction of signals that exhibit high peak response at close range
Can be used for close capturing drums, percussion, brass, guitar cabinets, and other instruments
Wide, linear frequency response results in accurate, transparent signal reproduction
The omnidirectional polar pattern provides a generous pick up area at the direct-axis of the capsule
Even frequency reproduction at the off-axis and direct sections of the microphone
