DPA 4071 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphone w/ Presence Boost

DPA 4071 Omnidirectional Microphone w/ Presence Boost

DPA 4071 Omnidirectional Microphone w/ Presence Boost Details
An outstanding speech and vocal mic, the 4071 will make your voice heard and intelligible. Use it for all ENG/EFP and even applications which require small microphones that are resistant to moisture, extreme temperature change and humidity.

When recording voices from mic placement on a performer's body, no frequency below 100 Hz is attractive. For this reason, an acoustical low-cut has been incorporated in the 4071 capsule so the built-in pre amp (and the wireless system) will have much larger headroom. Furthermore, it removes distant rumbling from cars, trains, airplanes, etc.

Another and equally important consideration is that when placing a microphone on the body, espcially on the chest, the frequency range of the consonants is damped, resulting in poor intelligibility. The 4071 has a built-in boost to compensate for this loss. Especially for ENG work the 4071 is perfect because almost no ENG mixer leaves any possibility for a compensation of this kind.

The 4071 features a specially designed, fixed microphone grid with a soft presence boost of typically 5 dB at 4 to 6 kHz. Speech intelligibility, clarity and definition of voices and instruments lie within the area that the 4071 grid boosts. For full technical specs, please click the Specifications tab above.

***** Note: This microphone comes standard with a MicroDot connection and a MicroDot adapter is required to terminate the mic to your wireless system. The list of adapters can be found at the link below.

DPA 4071 Applications
Typical applications are ENG/EFP use on the reporter in studio or in the field, or film production use, with hidden microphone placements on the actors.
