      You’ve never heard a subminiature like this before

      The 6060 Subminiature Lavalier starts shipping in November.

      d:screet™ 6060 CORE Subminiature Microphones are just 3 mm (0.12 in) in size but pack the audio power of our larger,  award-winning DPA mics. What they lack in size, they more than make up for in clarity, consistency and durability – three qualities that really matter. By shrinking CORE by DPA technology, we ensure you don't have to compromise on sound to focus on aesthetics. 


       
      • Amazing 3 mm CORE capsule technology
      • Renowned DPA sound in a 60% smaller package
      • Stainless steel, PVD-coated mic housing 
      • Modular adapter system fits most professional wireless systems


      Shrinking CORE into a 3 mm

      CORE by DPA is a powerful new technology at the heart of our miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion. From a whisper to a scream, you will experience increased clarity and openness.



      Now we've taken the amazing CORE technology and shrunk it down to fit into our (0.12 in) subminiature mics. This means that, despite their small size, the performance of the d:screet™ 6060 CORE Subminiature Series is fully comparable to the 5 mm (0.20 in) miniature capsules that are beloved around the globe. These subminiatures have a lower noise floor than any other 3 mm (0.12 in) capsule on the market and they are better able to capture high sound pressure levels without distortion as well. In terms of technical specifications, the d:screet™ 6061 has a noise floor of only 26 dB(A), which is  on par with the 5 mm (0.20 in) DPA miniature capsules. 
       

      Advanced new mic design

      This tiny capsule has a cap that can be removed for cleaning and should be firmly reattached to the mic body with  a firm click that can both be felt and heard. The supplied cap corresponds in its nature to the low-boost grid of our 5 mm (0.20 in) versions. Both the mic itself plus the cap are made of stainless steel and treated with a Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating that makes it extremely durable: able to tolerate high temperatures, resilient against impacts and resistant to abrasion. The entire mic has a pleasant matte look due to the coating making the entire headset look smaller and less obtrusive. 



      The cable is often the weak spot on these types of mics, but we have opted to use the same size cable (Ø 1.6 mm (.06 in)) and the same rugged cable relief as on our 5 mm (0.20 in) mics. The cables are extremely durable, do not become entangled and are equipped with an inner core made of Kevlar that withstands rough pulls. A strain relief is integrated in the mic housing to strengthen the assembly.

      The cable and capsule design ensure immunity to noisy wireless devices. These mics are typically connected to a wireless belt pack and we offer a comprehensive mix of adapters to suit the many wireless transmitters available. When used with an adapter, the connector is our MicroDot but we also offer hardwired terminations to suit the most popular systems from manufactures such as Shure and Sennheiser. All of our connectors are equipped with a rugged strain relief.

      It’s the only 3 mm (0.12 in) mic that gives you the DPA sonic quality that you know and love.

      IP58 certified

      The CORE Subminiatures are IP58 certified. This durability is achieved through a number of defense mechanisms:

      •    Water-repellant nano-coating of the cover and housing
      •    Hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic
      •    Dual gold plating of the diaphragm

      8-position lavalier clip


      When used as a lavalier, a special rotatable clip is available. The 360° clip allows the lav to be mounted in eight positions, chosen in 45° incremental steps. This makes it very easy to change from women's to men's shirts (left to right buttoned) or even t-shirts and the like where the neckline is used. 


       

      A bit about omnis

      An omnidirectional microphone has sensitivity at all angles – in principle picking up sound equally from all directions. This gives you extremely natural and realistic sound compared to a cardioid mic. 

      Omnis are most often used in film recording applications and broadcast environments as they pick up the sound most naturally compared to directional microphones. The omni does not suffer from proximity effect and is not as sensitive to wind, pop or handling noise. Even on a live stage, omnis are often used. 

      Sometimes, omnidirectional microphones are not the first type an audio engineer thinks of when it comes to live performances with a huge PA system amplifying the voice pick-up from an actor. Yet due to the short distance to the sound source (using a hidden bodyworn or headset), very high levels can be obtained with DPA omnis without feedback issues. These mics can be heard on many (very loud) theatre stages, for example on London's West End and Broadway.

       

      Adapter system gives you flexibility


      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 completely new microphone. When you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality.

      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. Should you prefer to have your mic hardwired to a specific connector type, DPA offers pre-terminated types for the most popular wireless systems.
