DPA Microphones 4061 overview

  • 1Description

The beige d:screet 4061 from DPA is a miniature omnidirectional lavalier microphone designed for use in performance and theatrical applications. The miniature lavalier features a condenser element with a frequency and sensitivity response that will accurately reproduce audio signals from the human voice and instruments. The capsule is designed with a double vent protection system and moisture-resistant materials inside the capsule, which ensure maximum protection from humidity and moisture caused by perspiration, makeup, etc.

The 4061 includes interchangeable capsule protection grids that alter the signal character of the microphone. A "High Boost" capsule creates a peak at 12 kHz, creating an airy texture to audio signals. The "Soft Boost" capsule creates a subtle boost between 8 to 20 kHz, enhancing signal presence. With a SPL rating of 144 dB, the microphone is more than capable of reproducing transient (peaking) audio before clipping. The 4061 is powered via +48V phantom power and features a MicroDot output connector, compatible with various wireless microphone transmitters or power supplies with standard XLR outputs. A MicroDot adapter is required to use with a wireless system.

Standard Sensitivity
Identical to the DPA 4060, the 4061's sensitivity is adjusted to 6 mV/Pa to match some of the more sensitive transmitters on the market.
Moisture Resistant
The 4061 features a double vent protection grid and moisture-resistant materials which prevent damage from humidity, perspiration and makeup.
Frequency-Altering Grids
The microphone includes "high boost" and "soft boost" protection grids that alter the frequency response and accentuate high-frequency signals.
Sensitive Condenser
If powered correctly the microphone will be able to handle sound pressure levels up to 144 dB SPL before clipping occurs.
Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
The omnidirectional polar pattern effectively captures audio at the direct and off-axis sections of the capsule.

    DPA Microphones 4061 reviews

    d:screet 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Low-Sensitivity Microphone (Beige) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoother Than A Barry White CD I recently upgraded all of my existing lavalieres on my entire ew500 wireless mic system with DPA 4061's. What a difference! The audio is so smooth. Nothing but compliments from my colleagues and clients. I would give this product a much higher score than 5 stars!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of equipment I have been through the gauntlet when it comes to lavalier microphones. My company finally upped my budget to get these after a series of failed purchases. The connector hardware is very solid and will never give the popping and crackling sound if it is screwed in all the way. The actual mic is very tiny and easy to clip. The sound quality is amazing and I dont have to use any gain on my cheap mixer to hear everyone clearly. The only problem I have now is I can hear them breathing! Hahaha but with a levels check its gone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purhaps the Best Wireless Lav Mic Ever I've used all the popular small lav style mics for years, and they are each good mics in their own way. But since upgrading to the DPA mics I can't go back. I use DPA 4061 (and DPA 4060, same element just more sensitive) in live audio and video production. For singers, violin, sax, mandolin, trumpet, etc., the 4061 is simply killer; full frequency range, flat, rich and hi-fi sounding. And for spoken word in video production they are really great too; only my Schoeps MK41 mics sound better in the field, but they cost over $ each, and are a much larger boom held mic. I use the DPA 4061 mics with the small adhesive stick on clips (on sax, mandolin, guitar) or with tape (sax, grand piano), or with the violin slings (between bridge and tailpiece), with an over-the-ear headset (spoken word and singing). Note that these are omni-directional and I haven't tried the other small DPA directional mics (which probably don't sound better, but might help with any rare feedback problems).
