The 4098 from DPA is a supercardioid gooseneck microphone with MicroDot. 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.

CORE by DPA technology has been added to the 4098 microphone, lifting sound quality even more, just like all of the other products using CORE technology. The 4098s dynamic range has been increased by 8 dB, so that the 1% THD is lifted significantly to 133 dB.

With very low noise and a high sensitivity, 4098 CORE 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.
