DPA Microphones recently upgraded its renowned 4098 Gooseneck Microphone to include its CORE by DPA technology.

Incorporating this technology to the 4098 allows presenters, politicians, pastors, instructors, and more, to be heard through the mic as though they are speaking to the viewer/listener directly.”
