DPA 4018V-B-B01 Softboost Supercardioid Mic, Wired DPA Handle

The DPA d:facto II Vocal mic is a handheld super-cardioid condenser mic. A great choice for stage reinforcement and studio uses, the d:facto II performs with high spill rejection, natural sound and high SPL handling.

With impressively linear phase and frequency response both on and off axis, the mic provides uncoloured definition and keeps signal focus on the vocal with its Super-cardioid polar pattern. Even on the loudest of stages, the d:facto II provides superior sound isolation and can handle up to 160dB peak SPL without distortion.

With adapters available for all industry standard wireless systems, the d:facto II can integrate painlessly with your radio mic kit, with zero loss in sound quality.
