Speech intelligibility - low noise

Key Features

  • Outstanding audio quality
  • Wireless podium mic capability
  • Highly directional – very isolated
  • High rejection of radio frequency interference
  • Sleek Scandinavian design

DPA gooseneck microphones have quickly become a very popular choice for podium mics as well as for conference room usage as either tabletop or ceiling mount.

These microphones have, on numerous occasions, been the preferred type to turn to when high speech intelligibility is paramount. This for instance is the fact at parliaments where multiple languages are to be simultaneous interpreted and the interpreters must catch every word and nuances of the spoken word and in a split second deliver the perfect translation.

In conference use, boardroom applications and videoconference situations the DPA mics gives you trouble-free installations and delivers pristine, clear sound.

The d:sign™ Gooseneck Microphone Series, contains specific mic solutions, mainly for the installation segment, from DPA's other microphone series.

d:sign™ 4098 Supercardioid Microphones

(This microphone was previously known as the d:screet™ 4098 Supercardioid Microphone.)

With very low noise and a high sensitivity, d:sign™ 4098 Supercardioid Microphones offer the most clear, transparent, and natural sound available on the miniature mic market. The mics are capable of handling extremely high SPL before clipping, which allows the mic to deliver high speech intelligibility even when the speaker gets excited and starts to speak VERY loudly. With a linear response, low distortion and an extremely large dynamic range, these mics sound great no matter how challenging the environment.

In addition, speaking into the side (off-axis) of the microphone doesn’t make the audio sound worse, it just drops the level of your voice.

The d:sign™ 4098 Supercardioid Microphone is available in many variants. It comes in either black or white, with either an XLR or a MicroDot termination and in five lengths ranging from 16 cm (6 in) to 122 cm (48 in).
