4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Loud SPL
The DPA CORE 4061 Omni microphone is acoustically identical to the 4060 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Normal SPL, but its sensitivity is adjusted to accommodate higher sound pressure levels (SPLs).
The 4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Loud SPL can handle sound pressure levels of up to 144dB peak before clipping. It is one of the best miniatures for use on very loud sound sources.
In comparison, the 4061 is about 10dB less sensitive than the 4060 and therefore works well when used for hidden applications, for example mounted on the head or forehead of a Theatre performer. In this placement, the sound pressure level is about 10dB louder than what you encounter with chest placement (lapel microphone).
The DPA CORE 4061 Omni Miniature Microphone, Loud SPL is available in four colours: black, brown, beige and white. An even more robust, heavy-duty version is also available.
In 2021, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors bestowed a Technical Achievement Award to DPA miniature microphones. The award is directed specifically to Jens-Jørn Stokholm and Ole Moesmann for the innovative development of high-performance miniature and subminiature DPA lavalier microphones.
