4063 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone



The 4063 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Loud SPL and Low voltage is designed for use with transmitters giving only 3V bias voltage.  

Acoustically identical to the 4061, but its internal preamplifier in the input stage is designed for working with lower supply voltage. With the correct power source, it handles sound pressure levels up to 138 dB before 10% THD occurs. 

Available in three colors: black, beige and white.



  • Exceptional audio quality 

  • Uniform, consistent sound between DPA mics 

  • Extremely rugged and reliable 

  • Small and unobtrusive; perfect for flexible and easy concealment 

  • Large selection of clips, windscreens, grids and other accessories 

  • Modular adapter system fits most professional wireless systems 



All the 4060 Series Omnidirectional Miniature Mics come with CORE by DPA, a powerful technology at the heart of our miniature microphones. CORE minimizes distortion across the entire dynamic range, increasing audio clarity and openness.

Application guide

Placement guide

Sound (in this case voice) varies depending on the placement of the microphone on the body.

Assembly guide 

The microphone comes with the Soft-Boost Grid attached. Pull gently to remove. To reattach (or attach the High-Boost Grid), press the grid into place on the microphone housing. 

To attach an adapter to the MicroDot connector, screw on gently yet firmly until you hear a click. 

Cleaning guide 

The cable and protection grid are the only parts that may be cleaned. Do not use any kind of cleaning fluid other than demineralized water. Avoid all kinds of spray or fluids containing chemical components to remove static electricity on or close to the microphone as this could cause damage to the electret layer. When mounting a 4060 Series Miniature Microphone directly on or close to the skin of a performer, care should be taken to avoid sweat from running into the microphone. If the microphone has been exposed to sweat, it must be rinsed out in demineralized water and left to dry out to recover its original specifications. Drying out the microphone between exposures to humidity will also help to extend its lifetime. If the microphone fills up with water it will not be damaged but can possibly turn deaf while the water is captured inside, behind the protection grid. Remove the water by shaking the microphone or drying it with a piece of lint free cloth. 

Cleaning the microphone grid 

During use in environments where the microphone is exposed to makeup or dusty materials, the grid may get clogged up. Make sure the grid is dry before re-mounting it on the mic housing. 

Cleaning the microphone cable 

Residue from tape, glue or makeup on the cable must be removed after use. Leaving these substances on the cable over longer periods of time may etch into the cable jacket and will make the cable more susceptible to breaks. The cable can easily be cleaned using organic oil (e.g. olive oil) or lukewarm, demineralized water. Do not bend the cable or rub it harshly since this may stress the inner cores of the cable and cause them to break over time.
