DPA Microphones d:screet Slim

Developed to provide the film industry with a ‘near-invisible’ bodyworn microphone, DPA Microphones’ d:screet Slim uses an omnidirectional capsule in a flat head, a slender cable and new button-hole mount.

Currently in beta-test with prominent sound engineers, the microphone’s new button-hole mount provides 90° sound acceptance, allowing the cable to lay flat against a surface rather than being perpendicular. It is also designed to fit into a space as small as 2mm. The combination of the size and available accessories increases the number of mounting solutions as it can be placed virtually anywhere without being seen.

‘After speaking with our users and colleagues in the industry, we took a closer look at how microphones were being concealed and developed a completely new and unique way we could address this requirement,’ says Product Manager, Mikkel Nymand. ‘The result was a microphone that is more easily hidden under clothes, a big necessity for television and film production. The nice thing about the new design is that it leaves a flatter footprint, but with the high-quality sound for which DPA is known.’

The d:screet 4060 capsule with high sensitivity and the 4061 capsule with low sensitivity used on the d:screet Slim offer high audio quality with low self-noise. As with all DPA microphones, this latest solution is compatible with all major wireless adapters. It is available in four colour options – beige, white, black and brown. A refinement of DPAs currently available concealer solution is in the works as an added accessory, which is one of the many accessory solutions that DPA is currently developing.

‘Most sound professionals are already familiar with DPA’s d:screet,’ adds Nymand. ‘The d:screet Slim will now provide new possibilities. We’re especially excited to reach audio professionals who have always wanted the DPA sound, but needed an even more unobtrusive solution.’
