Hot on the heels of its recent Red Dot Design Awards success, DPA Microphones will be showcasing its incredible 6000 series of subminiature microphones at this year’s IBC exhibition in Amsterdam (Stand 8.D70).
Since its launch in 2018, DPA’s 6000 series has continued to astonish end users and reviewers because it is so small and formidable. Measuring just three millimeters (0.12 inches) in diameter, 6000 series capsules are 60 per cent smaller than the company’s existing 4000 series, but equally as powerful. This is partly because it includes the supreme CORE by DPA microphone amplification technology that reduces distortion and increases dynamic range.
The series includes the 6060 and 6061 subminiature microphones, which can be fitted to clothes in the form of a virtually invisible lavalier. Also part of the collection is the 6066 headset microphone – recipient of a prestigious 2019 Red Dot Award – that is extremely comfortable to wear and so easy to fit that even the most inexperienced artist or performer can mount it themselves.
“Our ultimate goal is to create products that sound great, are consistent and durable, look sleek and elegant and make the job easier for everyone using them out in the field,” says Anne Berggrein, vice president of marketing at DPA. “With the 6000 series, we are working on the edge of what is physically possible, and these products are undoubtedly DPA’s greatest achievement within the last 10 years.”
