DPA’s CORE 6000 series headworn microphones feature their ‘smallest ever’ microphone capsule. Designed for use in pro audio markets such as broadcast, theatre and film, the 6000 series sub-miniature microphones are 3mm in diameter, ‘two millimetres smaller than the DPA’s existing 4000 series’ microphones.
The CORE technology used in the capsules provides a more defined sound by minimising distortion and expanding the dynamic range. Although originally designed for use with wireless systems in theatre, television and close-positioned instrument applications, the omnidirectional capsules also use ‘hermetic sealing’ and a ‘nano coating’ to provide an IP rating of 58 – making the microphones applicable to on field sports where moisture from the body or atmosphere are unavoidable.
Available in black, beige, or brown the 6066 CORE has a dual-ear design with ‘3-point gripping system’ which utilises support on the ear, behind the ear, and under the ear, ‘gently pressing inward’ to sit more securely around the ear as well as making more ergonomic and comfortable for longer periods of use. The boom are is 130mm in length and can be adjusted in length as well as pivoted up and down to ensure best positioning. The omnidirectional pre-polarised condenser capsule of the DPA 6066 CORE has a dynamic range of 102dB typical, and a maximum SPL of 144dB with a nominal sensitivity of 6mV/Pa. The mic capsule has a diameter of 3mm and has a fixed cable of 1.3m, giving for a total weight of 11g including MicroDot connector.
Frequency response: 20Hz-20kHz; 40Hz-20kHz, +/-2dB (with softboost at 8-20kHz). Equivalent noise level: 26dB typical, A-weighted. Signal to noise ratio: 68dB typical, A-weighted.
The microphones are fitted with cable terminated in a 'MicroDot' connector. A range of adapters for different wireless transmitters and direct cable connection is available.
These adapters allow DPA miniature microphones to be connected to various radio microphone transmitters or a standard 48V phantom powered XLR connector. Note that the adapters contain circuitry to pass the correct supply voltage to the microphone, so may not be suitable for use with other miniature microphones. Adapters are available for most UHF transmitters. If an adapter is required for a transmitter not listed here, please contact Technical Support.
