When convenient mounting and consistent output are the primary requirements, DPA has created the d:screetTM Necklace Microphone. The mic features their legendary d:screet 4061 omnidirectional miniature capsule in a soft rubber necklace offering fast, repeatable and "do-it-yourself" mounting. Designed for mounting by non-technicians, the necklace is the perfect choice in for instance a reality show setting.
By default, the 4061 capsule is fitted with the (replaceable) hi-boost grid, which takes care of the shadowing effect caused by placing the microphone underneath the chin.

A clever magnetic lock ensures easy set-up and perfect fit, but also releases when needed to prevent choking.

Have a listen to the necklace microphone compared to a 4060 mounted on the chest:

The d:screet Necklace Microphone comes in black, beige and brown and in a lengths of either 47 cm or 53 cm.

- Plug and play mounting
- Consistent output
- Minimal visual impact
- Adapts to all pro wireless systems

Microphones for video - what you need to know
Eddy B. Brixen explains the important features of microphones for video:
A microphone is a simple component that does not attract much attention; as a matter of fact it is just a device that transforms acoustical energy into electrical energy. However, there is a lot to gain if you select the right microphone for the job.

DPA Gets Up Close And Personal With Scarlett Johansson
DPA microphones turn up in some unusual places, but inside Scarlett Johansson‘s t-shirt has to be one of the brand‘s more exotic locations.
The company‘s d:screet™ 4060 miniature microphones deliver perfect audio even when hidden inside the actress‘ t-shirt.


According to French sound engineer Stéphane Bucher, DPA‘s d:screet™ 4060 miniature microphones were absolutely perfect for this role because they offered such exceptional audio quality. He used three of the mics to capture Johansson‘s performance during the making of Lucy, a new film directed by Luc Besson that is due for theatrical release later this month.

"d:screet 4060 microphones are very small but that wasn‘t the reason why I chose to use them," Bucher explains. "It was all about their audio fidelity — when it comes to sound quality DPA 4060‘s are much, much better than other lavalier mics on the market."
