Müllner adds that having a tool that sounds brilliant and functions well in any kind of environment is particularly important for live shows where conditions can be extremely harsh.
“In a live environment, the actors are sweating and they don’t pay too much attention to the technical gear they are fitted with,” he explains. “I am delighted to say that our d:screet™
lavalier microphones are very reliable and we depend on them a great deal, especially in the drama theatre where actors often refuse to wear a second microphone. This means that 90% of the time we operate with only one mic per actor, so the mic has to work under almost any conditions.”
Other advantages of DPA miniature microphones are their size as well as their consistency, says Müllner. “They are one of the smallest, most invisible and lightweight mics to wear on the market, which is a great advantage. Also, when it comes to replacing microphones, it is very important that they all sound the same. We’ve tried out cheaper mics but if you have a bunch of, say, 10 mics you soon find that they don’t all sound the same.”
