The DPA Microphones 6060 CORE Omni Submini Mic, Normal SPL, is just 3 mm (0.12 in) in size but packs the audio power of DPA’s larger, award-winning mics. What it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in clarity, consistency and durability—three qualities that really matter. By shrinking CORE by DPA technology, DPA ensures you don't have to compromise on sound to focus on aesthetics.

Shrinking CORE into a 3 mm
CORE by DPA is a powerful technology at the heart of their miniature microphones. DPA has minimized distortion—from a whisper to a scream, you’ll experience increased clarity and openness.

They’ve taken the CORE technology and shrunk it down to fit into their (0.12 in) subminiature mics. This means that, despite their small size, the performance of the 6060 CORE Subminiature Series is fully comparable to the 5 mm (0.20 in) miniature capsules that are beloved around the globe. These subminiatures have a lower noise floor and are better able to capture high sound pressure levels without distortion.

Advanced mic design
This tiny capsule has a cap that can be removed for cleaning and should be firmly reattached to the mic body with a firm click that can both be felt and heard. The supplied cap corresponds in its nature to the low-boost grid of DPA’s 5 mm (0.20 in) versions. Both the mic itself plus the cap are made of stainless steel and treated with a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating that makes it extremely durable—able to tolerate high temperatures, resilient against impacts and resistant to abrasion. The entire subminiature lavalier mic has a pleasant matte look due to the coating, making the headset look smaller and less obtrusive.

The cable is often the weak spot on these types of mics, but DPA has opted to use the same size cable (Ø 1.6 mm (.06 in)) and the same rugged cable relief as on their 5 mm (0.20 in) mics. The cables are extremely durable, do not become entangled and are equipped with an inner core made of Kevlar that withstands rough pulls. A strain relief is integrated in the mic housing to strengthen the assembly.

IP58 Certified
The CORE Subminiatures are IP58 certified. This durability is achieved through several defense mechanisms:

• Water-repellant nano-coating of the cover and housing
• Hermetic sealing of the sensitive amplifier at the core of the mic
• Dual gold plating of the diaphragm
