BODYWORN MICROPHONES

Microphones for bodyworn applications

When both body and voice need to be free, a DPA Bodyworn Microphone should be your go-to solution. Headset or miniature, visible or concealed, DPA's bodyworn microphones give you astoundingly accurate sound in an incredibly small design.

Miniature mics for bodyworn applications

Our miniature microphones are versatile workhorses that adapt to your needs. With eminent sound quality, as well as a large range of accessories and adapters available for all pro wireless systems, these mics are the obvious choice for any application requiring a big sound and a small footprint.

In situations where the talent requires flexibility of movement or when mics need to be cleverly concealed, your choice of microphone can make or break the performance. Bodyworn miniatures and accessories are products designed for professional voice reproduction in broadcast, film, installation and field applications among others.


These versatile mics can be easily positioned anywhere on the body to capture the best possible sound for your specific assignment. Bodyworn miniatures allow you to ensure repeatable, superior sound quality, unseen by the audience. They come in a range of variants that can meet your special needs, but common to all of them is their excellence at functioning at high or low SPL, and in humidity, heat and dusty conditions. They can be relied upon to deliver high-quality output with pristine detail and low noise.

Headset mics for bodyworn applications

Small and elegant in design, DPA headset mics are ideal for singers, public speakers, actors, musicians and broadcast professionals who place more importance on superior voice reproduction, comfort and easy setup, than concealment.

They come in a range of variants that can meet your special needs, but common to all of them is their superior sound quality, flexibility and durability.


The choice of a single- or dual-ear mount allows the talent to select the best version for their specific type of performance. The dual-ear version is ideal for more active situations, when secure mounting is required, as it sits snugly on the neck and is virtually invisible. Like its single-ear counterpart, it is unobtrusive, and so comfortable that users forget they are wearing it.

Durability and flexibility of our mics

The DPA Bodyworn Microphones are designed to withstand the toughest of conditions.

Our unique Double Vent Protection System allows for a great resistance to humidity and sweat. With a gold-treated diaphragm and microphone housing plus a Kevlar®-reinforced cable, the DPA Bodyworn Microphones are made to endure. Furthermore, on our miniature omnidirectional mics, we have added a reinforced cable relief which is built to withstand the constant twists, bends, and pulls that are part of the everyday use.

Legacy or CORE by DPA - The choice is yours

The legacy miniature mics have always been, and still are, some of the most clear, consistent and robust miniature microphones you can find on the market. They are known for working across a wide dynamic range as well as exhibiting low distortion across all SPLs. But, if you need to squeeze a little more performance out of your mics, choose CORE by DPA.



CORE is a powerful new technology at the heart of DPA miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion and expanded the dynamic range so that the mic sounds even better.

DPA microphones are known for their ability to withstand expressive acoustical sound pressure levels (SPL) without distortion and now CORE minimizes distortion even more. With a large dynamic range, one microphone can be bodyworn on an actor that needs to whisper in one scene and scream in the next.

CORE is available for select models of our miniatures.  Learn more about CORE by DPA.
 

Flexible adapter system

The adapters for wireless systems give you flexible, simple and affordable possibilities. You are no longer bound to one wireless system. As circumstances change, you can just switch your adapter, instead of incurring the cost of a whole new microphone. And when you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality due to the narrow production tolerances of the mics.



Our miniature microphones work with all leading wireless mic solutions, such as Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Zaxcom and many more. DPA Microphones’ ingenious adapter system is one of a kind in the industry. It protects your investment in fantastic sound for years to come.

I was initially taken back by how small the mics were. However, the 4061s were able to duplicate the pianos natural rich tone better than any mics we’ve tried to date. The close distance to the frame allowed us to capture a full thick bodied mid-range sound.
