DPA Shows 4017 Shotgun And 4080 Cardioid Lavalier Mics At European AES.


DPA Microphones’ stand, number 1314, at AES Amsterdam 2008: recently-launched 4017: a short and lightweight shotgun microphone offering a directional pickup pattern while maintaining DPA’s characteristic clarity.

DPA carried out extensive R&D to create a high-end shotgun mic with extremely smooth off-axis responses. The company has produced a shotgun which combines high specifications with a short length of 210 mm (8.3 inches), and a weight of just 71 grams (2.5 ounces).

DPA anticipates that the largest market for the 4017 will be broadcast, while the product will also appeal to freelance engineers, small radio stations and the top end of the consumer market.

Another new product, the DPA 4080 is a miniature cardioid lavalier microphone developed to provide optimum speech intelligibility for numerous applications including broadcast, recording, conferences and live performance.

Designed to be body-mounted approximately 20–25 cm from the mouth, the DPA 4080 is acoustically pre-equalised and offers a 5 dB presence boost which apparently improves speech intelligibility and definition. It comes with a pre-mounted pop-filter in a robust holder with integrated shock mount, and this innovative mounting solution allows the mic to be easily turned in any direction.

The two newest DPA additions can be seen at the show alongside the company’s existing mic range.
