At just 210 mm (8.3 in) and 68 g (2.4 oz), the DPA 4017B is one of the shortest and lightest shotgun condenser microphones available. At the same time, it offers impressive accuracy, clarity and musicality. The mic is immune to RF emission and the 19 mm (0.75 in) condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152 dB before clipping. It also withstands use in very humid environments with ease.
The 4017B Shotgun Microphone features two onboard filters. They are activated via an ingenious switching ring design. With a simple twist of two sturdy rings, engineers can implement a high-frequency boost that adds a 4 dB shelf at 8 kHz. This compensates for hi loss when used with windjammers. A first-order bass roll-off below 120 Hz minimises handling and wind noise. A permanent third-order high-pass filter at 50 Hz effectively removes unwanted low frequency disturbance from handling and wind noise.
