A 3 mm subminiature lavalier mic with the DPA sonic quality you know and love.

The DPA Microphones 6061 CORE Omni Submini Mic, Loud SPL, is just 3 mm (0.12 in) in size but packs the audio power of DPA’s larger, award-winning mics. What the 6061 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 the powerful technology at the heart of DPA’s miniature microphones. They’ve minimized distortion with this series of microphones—from a whisper to a scream, you’ll experience increased clarity and openness.

DPA has taken their CORE technology and shrunk it down to fit into their 3mm (0.12 in) subminiature mics. This means that, despite their small size, the performance of the 6061 CORE Subminiature Mic 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. In terms of technical specifications, the 6061 has a noise floor of only 26 dB(A), which is on par with the 5 mm (0.20 in) DPA miniature capsules.

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, which makes 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:
