Trouble-free sound

When a single speaker has to deliver a message to hundreds of people through a conference system, the microphone has to be the very best. DPA's installation solutions deliver remarkably clear sound with optimum rejection of background noise.

Enabling outstanding sound in acoustically-challenging spaces can be very tricky. But choosing the proper microphones makes everything easier. The right mics can minimize potential problems before they pop up and guarantee customer satisfaction after project close. Whatever the setting, DPA supercardioid mics combine controlled directionality with excellent rejection of background noise into an elegant mic solution for even the most difficult space.

Our mics ensure a smooth project and a satisfied customer by providing:
  • Maximum speech intelligibility regardless of acoustical environment
  • High gain before feedback means fewer speaker placement issues
  • Rejection of mobile phone interference
  • Consistent sound from every microphone, every time

Gooseneck solutions

Our gooseneck microphones for podiums, tables, ceilings and floor standing, provide linear, natural sound combined with elegant visual design. They also offer unparalleled modularity: use them to amplify an entire audience one day and a single speaker the next. The microphones' remarkably clean sound provides high intelligibility with the rejection of background noise.

DPA's solutions for wired installations are fully modular microphones, including different directionalities and preamplifier choices. Our standard high-end configuration is the MMC4018 Supercardioid Capsule with MMP-F Modular Active Boom.

The highly directional supercardioid pickup pattern of the 4018 has a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response. The supercardioid shape is frequency independent, securing an identical sound color around the microphone. The usual rear lobe heard on most supercardioids is minimized on this microphone making it much more isolated without sudden frequency dependent peaks and dips.

This solution is available in many variants to meet your specific needs. It comes in lengths of 15 cm (6 in) for hanging solutions, 30 cm (12 in) to 45 cm (18 in) for podium solutions and 75 cm (30 in) to 120 cm (48 in) for floor stand applications. Custom variants, to meet your exact needs, are also available.

Another supercardioid solution is the 4098 Supercardioid Gooseneck Microphone that delivers high intelligibility by combining controlled directionality with rejection of background noise. These gooseneck microphones use our famous miniature mic capsules and our innovative interference tube technology. The 4098 Supercardioid Gooseneck Microphone is available in many variants to meet your specific needs. It comes in black or white, with either an XLR or a MicroDot termination (for wireless solutions) and in lengths ranging from 16 cm (6 in) to 47 cm (18 in). Longer black variants are available in 77 cm (30 in) and 122 cm (48 in).

The 4011 Cardioid Mic is another install solution. This first-order cardioid mic has a wider sound pickup pattern compared to the supercardioid variant. Choose the 4011 Cardioid Microphone when you need a microphone to pick up more than one person speaking or for situations when the speaker moves around a lot in front of the microphone.
Advantages of our installation solutions:

  • Sonically superior
  • Stylish design
  • Uniform supercardioid directionality
  • Excellent isolation
  • High rejection of radio frequency interference
  • A wide range of installation possibilities (floor, hanging, podium / tabletop)

Microphone Base

When the aesthetics of the meeting space are as important as the audio quality, the SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphone, together with the stylish Microphone Base, is the right solution. Unobtrusively mounted on the ceiling or elegantly embellishing the meeting table, this mic ensures that every participant is heard and understood.

DPA microphone base on conference table

The Microphone Base can be used with any of our gooseneck microphones with a MicroDot connector as the output, though it is made especially for the DPA gooseneck microphone. The Microphone Base has an elegant yet unobtrusive design with a black or white, non-reflective surface.

The Microphone Base comes with a built-in shock mount system that gives very good suppression of unwanted handling noise from a table or the like. A locking ring is provided to secure the gooseneck in place, when this is twisted and turned to reach the right position. Furthermore it tightens the microphone to the base to form a complete system.

With very low noise and a high sensitivity, the microphone offers the most clear, transparent, and natural sound available on the miniature mic market. It is capable of handling extremely high SPL before clipping. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, they sound great no matter how challenging the environment.

We recommend the use of microphones in these lengths: 16 cm (6 in), 28 cm (11 in), 43 cm (17 in). Longer goosenecks should be avoided.

Supercardioid ceiling microphone solution

A complete, supercardioid ceiling microphone solution, which is ideal for mounting from the ceiling of conferences venues, meeting rooms, board rooms and other small to mid-sized spaces. The Microphone Base fits most electrical back boxes and secures ease of installation. Furthermore, the great off-axis response and the physics of sound level vs distance, makes it possible to cover a small to mid-size room with only one or a few microphones.

Supercardioid tabletop microphone solution

A complete, tabletop microphone solution. Ideal for either permanently affixing to or temporarily placed on a table in conference venues, meeting rooms and board rooms. This solution can be scaled up as needed. In smaller rooms you might only need one microphone to capture the best sound. In larger settings, you can use multiple DPA's tabletop microphones to ensure each area of the room is completely covered. The best audio quality is obtained in a one-to-one solution – one microphone position close to one speaker.
