DPA Microphones Introduces CORE Microphone Technology

DPA Microphones has launched CORE, a new high dynamic range amplifier technology for its line of miniature lavalier and headset microphones.

Used in its d:screet and d:fine lines of microphones, DPA said CORE dramatically expands dynamic range, creating a clearer sound from the highest of the highs to the lowest of the lows in CORE-enabled miniature mic capsules.

For example, the dynamic range of the d:screet 4061 and the d:fine 4066 has been increased by 14dB at one percent THD, DPA said. CORE technology gives the microphones a more clear and open sound from a whisper to a scream.

“The new CORE technology does not replace our existing mics, but rather offers another choice to our worldwide customer base.”
René Mørch, DPA’s product manager.

Located in the capsule of its miniature mics, CORE is currently available in the d:screet 4060, d:screet 4061, d:fine 4066 and d:fine 4088 mics. Microphones purchased with the new technology will come in CORE packaging and will have a blue label near the serial number on the cable to differentiate between these and the original versions.

A very discreet laser engraving stating “core” has been incorporated at the microphone capsule as well. The remaining d:screet and d:fine microphones and full range of color options will be available with CORE technology in early 2018.

The new CORE omnidirectional microphones will also provide water and moisture resistance through nano coating and hermetic sealing of the sensitive electronics.
