DPA 4098 CORE Miniature Supercardioid Podium Microphone, XLR

The DPA 4098 COREMiniature Supercardioid Podium Microphone features a directional (supercardioid) polar pattern with the extreme clarity and performance DPA miniature capsules are known for. Available in three boom lengths – 15cm, 30cm and 45cm, DPA’s 4098 lectern mics provide a superior microphone solution for conferences, public speakers, meeting rooms and broadcast. The 4098 is available in Black or White.

One of the biggest issues faced when using lectern mics is the speaker drifting off-axis. The DPA 4098CORE capsule is designed to have a much more natural sounding off axis response than other podium mics, ensuring the speaker is always heard clearly while still attenuating ambient noise.
