d:dicateâ„¢ 4007C Omni Microphone, 12mm, Compact

Fem års garanti • Neutral, precise & versatile

• Hi SPL handling

• Recording and measuring reference

• Linear response up to 40 kHz

When a small, lightweight, inconspicuous microphone for top-quality recordings or measurements is required, the compact design and clean, transparent sound of our versatile 4007C is the perfect choice. 4007C is, due to its linear qualities and perfect omnidirectionality, also used as reference microphone in both microphone comparisons and acoustic test equipment, not least thanks to its extremely linear on-axis response in an extended frequency range from 10 Hz to 40 kHz (±2 dB). This mic is also popular with musicians for close-miking instruments such as drums, percussion, double bass, trumpet and piano.

The 4007C has through its total acoustical transparency and ultra-high SPL handling capability gained a reputation as being among the preferred choices for picking up drums, percussion and brass instruments, whenever the natural and non-distorted result is paramount. Furthermore, the 4007C can be mounted, hung or concealed to create clean, transparent recordings. It is ideal in theatres, opera and concert halls or places of worship.


At any time and with no tools necessary it is possible to transform the basic 4007A microphone into a new configuration by combining it with another DPA microphone capsule or preamp.
