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.



The d:fine™, d:screet™ and d:vote™ series of 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 d:screet™ 4061’s were able to duplicate the piano's 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.

Miniature microphone applications

In situations where the talent requires flexibility of movement or when mics need to be cleverly concealed, the d:screet™ Miniature Microphones Series should be the first you turn to for a great performance.

d:screet™ Miniature Microphones and accessories are products designed for professional sound reproduction in broadcast, film, installation and field applications. They are also ideal for close miking a wide range of instruments.

 


Miniature mics for film and TV

Often, these small, versatile mics are concealed on the body to capture the best possible sound for film and TV productions as well as on the theater stage.

Bodyworn d:screet™ Miniature Microphones allow you to ensure repeatable, superior sound quality, unseen by the audience. They come in a range of variants, including the virtually invisible d:screet™ Slim Series, which can meet your special concealment needs.

Combine the d:screet™ 4060 Omnidirectional Microphone with the flexible Gooseneck Mount, for an unobtrusive plant mic that offers clean, detailed and natural sound quality. This mic is designed to pick up softer sound levels or for picking up ambient sound, so it is ideal to use in a concealed application for film sound recordists.


Miniature mics for theater

Even when used in the toughest theater conditions, Bodyworn d:screet™ Miniature Microphones ensure that the talent sounds amazing.



The d:screet™ Miniature Microphone series delivers 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. You don’t have to take our word for it either: 95% of West End London theater productions can’t be wrong.
 

Miniature mics for broadcast programming

These mini mics can easily be positioned on the wardrobes of news reporters, television personalities and talent show guests.



These mics are designed to compensate for the potential loss of vocals when place on clothing (often on the chest) and can additionally block out undesired sounds to ensure the clearest audio production. d:screet™ Miniature Microphones can be used in almost any type of broadcast situation because they are very tough and come with a large number of accessories, which makes them very versatile.
 

Miniature mics for houses of worship

Bodyworn d:screet™ Miniature Microphones are a great solution for pastors and speakers who move around a lot and need a microphone that allows them the freedom to deliver a riveting sermon. There are a variety of miniature mics that can be worn comfortably on the body that will meet these needs.



One simple yet effective option is the d:screet™ Necklace Microphone. This mic is the best choice for a “do-it-yourself” option. Nothing is easier to use; it simply attaches around the neck and sits there comfortably no matter how the wearer moves. With low noise and high sensitivity, the d:screet™ Necklace Microphone offers clear, transparent, and natural sound in a fast, repeatable way. Another easy-to-use solution is the d:screet™ 4080 Miniature Cardioid Microphone, Lavalier.

Amplifying choirs can be a major challenge but properly-placed d:screet™ SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphones, is one way to resolve this issue. Place the d:screet™ SC 4098 either on mic stands or suspend them from the ceiling. Point the capsules to the last row of singers. The directional pick-up pattern will attenuate the sounds to the side and produce a natural balance between the nearest (loudest but attenuated) and the furthest (weakest level, but performing to the microphones most sensitive direction).
 

Miniature mics for instrument miking

An ideal close-miking solution for a wide variety of musical instruments.



d:screet™ Miniature Microphones offer a very clean, detailed and natural sound quality. The mics are capable of handling up to 154 dB peak before clipping, and have a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, perfect for capturing the unique resonances of any instrument. Combine the lo-sens d:screet™ 4061 Omnidirectional Microphone with a GM1600 Gooseneck Mount and an appropriate instrument clip if you are after a very unobtrusive microphone with a big sound.
