UNBEATABLE SOUND, MINIMAL FOOTPRINT
In situations where the talent requires flexibility of movement or when mics need to be cleverly concealed, your choice of microphone can make or break the performance. d:screet™ Miniature Microphones and accessories are products designed for professional sound reproduction.

d:screet™ Miniature Microphones are extremely flexible and can be used for both speech and vocal pick up. Their sound quality, versatility and durability allow them to perform amazingly in a wide range of applications. They are well-known and well-loved theater microphones. Musicians and engineers use them as live or studio microphones for close miking acoustic string instruments. In broadcast, these small condenser mics are popular as lavalier, lapel and tie clip microphones.

The d:screet™ Miniature Microphones Series comes in a wide range of variants that can meet your needs no matter your assignment. There are both omnidirectional and directional variants in the series.

The variety of mounting options available in d:screet™ Miniature Kits and accessories lets you place your microphones accurately, easily and stylishly for optimal results.

Legacy or CORE by DPA - The choice is yours
The legacy d:screet™ Miniature Microphones have always been, and still are, some of the most clear, consistent and robust miniature microphones you can find on the market. They are known for working across a wide dynamic range as well as exhibiting low distortion across all SPLs. But, if you need to squeeze a little more performance out of your mics, choose CORE by DPA.

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

CORE by DPA is available for select models of d:screet™ Miniature Microphones as well as d:fine™ Headset Microphones Series.

This series contains the 4060, 4061, 4062, 4063 and 4071 Omni Miniature Mics. Each version is tailored towards a specific application based on sensitivity, voltage and placement needs. They are all based on the original d:screet™ 4060 the very first miniature microphone developed by DPA from the best technology previously only used in hearing aids and measurement microphones. All of the mics in the series share important basic features, but each is optimized for particular applications.

The series was developed to withstand the toughest of conditions. They contain a 5.4 mm diameter pre-polarized condenser element with a vertical diaphragm. This unique, Double Vent Protection System makes the mics greatly resistant to humidity and sweat. These mics are also designed with a Kevlar-reinforced cable relief, which is built to withstand the constant twists, bends and pulls that are part of the everyday use in harsh environments.

The acoustic response of the d:screet™ 4060 Series can be modified by selecting the correct grid for the job. Two grids are supplied with each microphone (not the d:screet™ 4071, which includes a fixed grid). The pre-fitted Soft Boost Grid gives a 3 dB soft boost at 8-20 kHz. It should be used when the microphone is mounted on the performer’s head as well as in most other applications where you need a natural-sounding microphone. When fitted, the High Boost Grid introduces a 10 dB soft boost around 12 kHz for applications where the microphones chest-placement is preferred. Both of these grids are made of anodized stainless steel, giving a tough and scratch resistant surface. They can be detached from the microphone and cleaned of sweat, makeup, etc.

d:screet™ 4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Loud SPL

This microphone is acoustically identical to the d:screet™ 4060 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Normal SPL, but its sensitivity is adjusted to accommodate higher sound pressure levels (SPLs).

The d:screet™ 4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Loud SPL can handle SPL up to 144 dB peak before clipping, making it one of the best miniatures for use on very loud sound sources, such as some instruments and human voices.

In comparison, the d:screet™ 4061 is about 10 dB less sensitive than the d:screet™ 4060 and therefore works well when used for hidden applications, for example mounted on the head or forehead of a theater performer. In this placement, the sound pressure level is about 10 dB louder than what you encounter with chest placement (lapel microphone).

This mic is available in four colors: black, brown, beige and white. An even more robust, heavy-duty version is also available.
