The DPA 4060 is acoustically identical with the 4061, 4062, and 4063 with a higher sensitivity for lower sound pressure levels. Offering great detail and resolution, the 4060 has a super low noise floor and a neutral sonic character with a transparent natural sound.  Excellent for speech and vocals, the DPA miniatures are used by musicals and theaters worldwide. They are also great live and studio microphones for acoustic string instruments.

Two grids are supplied (one high boost and one soft boost), and by changing these grids you can acoustically modify the microphone according to placement (chest, head etc.) With a wide range of MicroDot adapters, you can use DPA miniature microphones with all professional wireless systems plus 48v phantom power.

If you are purchasing this lav with a TA5 or Lemo connector, we will modify the mic in house, and will take 7-10 days to ship.  If you order it pigtailed (unterminated), or with a microdot connector, it will ship immediately if in stock.  When ordering with the microdot connector, be sure you order the correct DPA microdot adapter to interface with your transmitter or sound system. 

* For Zaxcom transmitters, the DPA 4063 (built for operating with lower supply voltage) is recommended.
