DPA Microphones recently upgraded its renowned 4098 Gooseneck Microphone to include its CORE by DPA technology. With this update, the 4098 CORE mic will join DPA’s other CORE products in offering minimal distortion across the entire dynamic range, increasing audio clarity and openness and further enhancing DPA’s already stellar sound. Perfect for both podium and conference room mic’ing, the DPA 4098 CORE is the ideal solution for instances when high speech intelligibility is paramount. This has proven especially true for today’s socially distanced, video conferencing world.

“When we first launched CORE by DPA, we knew we wanted to implement this technology into all DPA mics to provide an even greater user experience,” says René Moerch, product manager at DPA Microphones. “By increasing the dynamic range of the mics, CORE by DPA extends the point at which the distortion is just starting to become audible. 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.”
