DPA Microphones 4060 Series Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone


This series contains the 4060, 4061, 4062, 4063 and 4071 Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Mics. Each version is tailored towards a specific application based on sensitivity, voltage and placement needs. They are all based on the original 4060; the very first miniature microphone developed by DPA from the best technology previously only used in hearing aids and measurement microphones. All of the mics in the series share important basic features, but each is optimised for particular applications.

The series was developed to withstand the toughest of conditions. They contain a 5.4 mm diameter pre-polarized condenser element with a vertical diaphragm. This unique, Double Vent Protection System makes the mics greatly resistant to humidity and sweat. These mics are also designed with a Kevlar-reinforced cable relief, which is built to withstand the constant twists, bends and pulls that are part of the everyday use in harsh environments.


  • Exceptional audio quality
  • Uniform, consistent sound between DPA mics
  • Extremely rugged and reliable
  • Diminutive size made for flexible and easy concealment
  • Large selection of clips, windscreens, grids and other accessories
  • Modular adapter system fits most professional wireless systems


Sound Pressure Level (SPL)
It is important to choose a mic that fits the SPL of the sound source you are capturing. Remember, the SPL depends on the distance to the sound source.
Please choose either:

NORMAL SPL (6060/4060/4660) – This mic can handle loud sound sources.(20 mV/Pa)

LOUD SPL (6061/4061/4661) – This mic can handle very loud sound sources. It is typically used as a head mounted mic in theatre and the like. (6m V/Pa)

LOUD SPL & LOW VOLTAGE (4063) – Designed to capture loud sound sources and for use with transmitters giving only 3V bias voltage. (6 mV/Pa)

EXTREMELY LOUD SPL (4062) – This mic can handle the loudest SPLs.
                                                                 It has been used in the engine compartment of cars and directly in the exhaust pipes. (1 mV/Pa)
LOUD SPL AND PRESENCE BOOST (4071/4671) – Features a presence boost which optimises it as a chest-placed microphone for broadcast, ENG and film. (6 mV/Pa)
