DPA 4018F45 Supercardioid Microphone 45 cm Boom

4018F45: Supercardioid Microphone, 45cm Boom

d:dicateâ„¢ 4018F Supercardioid Podium or Floor Stand Microphone

• Ultimate Podium mic

• Voice Isolation Pattern - VIP

• Highly directional

• Low noise and natural voice

Due to its modular nature, the MMC4018 supercardioid capsule can be combined with different lengths of podium booms – 15, 30 or 45 cm (6, 12 or 18 in). If longer booms are needed for floor stands with visual elegance, our long booms at 75 or 120 cm (30 or 48 in) makes a high-quality stage voice mic together with our dedicated accessories.

The highly directional supercardioid pickup pattern has a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response. The supercardioid shape is frequency independent, securing an identical sound color around the microphone. The usual rear lobe heard on most supercardioids is minimized on the 4018F making it much more isolated without sudden frequency dependent peaks and dips.


For speech it’s all about the voice and no sound source is probably as recognizable as just that. No other microphone than the DPA 4018F has a more natural response to speak. No equalization is needed to remove microphone artifacts, with the 4018 the voice intelligibility is straight out of the mic.
