DPA Microphones 4017B overview

  • 1Description

The 4017B Shotgun Microphone from DPA is a professional, versatile microphone designed for demanding sound capturing in film, video, sound reinforcement and even music recording. The supercardioid, lobe-shaped polar pattern is coupled with excellent off-axis signal rejection for a focused pickup, enhanced range and minimal noise. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications.

The 4017B's frequency response, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio result in pristine, transparent signal reproduction. Two onboard filters eliminate noise and artifacts with a 4dB shelf at 8kHz and a first-order bass roll-off below 120Hz. The short, lightweight profile of the 4017B make it a suitable choice for both indoor and outdoor production with boompoles, handheld shock-mounts, etc.

    DPA Microphones 4017B reviews

    4017B Shotgun Microphone is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not immune to RFI This is a great sounding mic and a fine offering from DPA but it is by no means immune to RFI. I was just on a show where the camera ops were using older type video transmitters that spewed all kinds of RF junk around. The 4017B got slammed constantly. I checked to see if maybe the capsules were loose-they were not. The mic was literally rendered useless until the video units were off. I was also using the new Rycote super softie that for some reason seemed to amplify the problem. Removing it decreased the interference but it was still bad. I had to switch to my Sennheiser MKH60. Once I did that, the problem was gone. Perhaps DPA should do a little more testing before claiming the mic is immune to RFI
