    4099-DC-1-101-P - Overview

    The DPA 4099-DC-1-101-P is already the recognized standard for this type of microphone and the CORE version adds just another layer of sound quality that further distances this mic from its competitors. 4099 CORE brings more clarity and details to your music, across the entire dynamic range. Anyone looking for the very highest sound quality should choose CORE - every musician, live sound engineer and anyone else who takes pride in quality audio.

    CORE by DPA is a powerful new technology at the heart of DPA miniature microphones. We've minimized distortion. From pianissimo to forte, you will experience increased clarity and openness. Learn more about CORE by DPA.

    From the piano to guitar; strings to woodwinds; brass to percussion, the 4099 Series sounds equally impressive on them all. This one microphone model can beautifully reinforce an entire orchestra. You can move the mic to another instrument; just make sure you have the right type of clip to mount it correctly.The award-winning 4099 Series gives you a much more natural sound than any clip-on microphone or pickup. This condenser microphone rejects unwanted noise and accurately captures the true voice of your acoustic instrument.

    IP58 Certified
    All CORE by DPA technology microphones, including the 4099 CORE, are IP58 certified. This durability is achieved through a number of defense mechanisms:

    - Water-repellant nano-coating of the cover and housing
    - Hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic
    - Dual gold plating of the diaphragm

    A Bit about Supercardioids
    A supercardioid microphone is similar to a cardioid - it is most sensitive to sound coming in at the front and is least sensitive at the back. Supercardioid mics tend to have a much narrower angle of sensitivity - making them even more focused than a "normal" cardioid mic. This off-axis sound will be more or less colored and damped - and, due to the narrow angle of focus, the area of damped sound is increased significantly. The unique DPA capsule technique however skips the colorization of the sound coming from the sides or the rear of the mic and just reduces the sensitivity to these angles and thereby offers perfect sound stages. The amount of damping depends on the exact specifications of the mic.

    Due to their nature, supercardioid mics are often used on the live stage - both during concerts as well as spoken-word events, to capture the focused sound of an instrument or voice. The narrow angle of sensitivity helps to minimize the bleed from other sounds on a busy stage. One thing to note with supercardioid mics is the proximity effect, which causes an increase in bass response the closer the microphone is moved to the sound source. In addition, supercardioid mics are far more sensitive to wind, pop and handling noises than omni mics, so be sure to take precautions to guard against this.

    Adapter System Gives You Flexibility
    The adapters for wireless systems give you flexible, simple and affordable possibilities. You are no longer bound to one wireless system. As circumstances change, you can just switch your adapter, instead of incurring the cost of a completely new microphone. When you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality.

    The d:fine™, d:screet™ and d:vote™ series of miniature microphones work with all leading wireless mic solutions, such as, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Lectrosonics , Zaxcom and many more. DPA Microphones' ingenious adapter system is one of a kind in the industry. It protects your investment in fantastic sound for years to come.
