Product Description

DPA 4098H

Dedicated to hanging applications like churches, performing arts centers, orchestra pits, theatres and TV studios, the DPA 4098H delivers sparkling clear and distinct natural sound for both recording and sound reinforcement of choirs, instrumental or vocal groups, speech or live audiences.

The DPA 4098H represents a breakthrough in discreet, elegant and lightweight design. Extremely low in profile, the integrated gooseneck provides the ability to easily aim the mics, ensuring perfect positioning with minimal visual impact since the cables are very slim and nearly invisible.

These microphones live up to their pedigree with sound as accurate as DPA’s other world-class microphones with clear and natural sound, flat response and uniform off-axis sound combined with excellent gain-before-feedback characteristics for live sound. The 4098H has extremely high rejection of RF interference post the signal balanced XLR connector which offers more than 60 dB common mode rejection.

With its easy to hang and aim design along with its extremely natural sound, the DPA 4098H is truly a hanging microphone without equal that continues the heritage of sonic excellence from DPA Microphones.
