DPA 4016 Wide Cardioid 130v – No Longer Available

High voltage condenser mic
MFR# 4016

Product Description

The 4016 wide cardioid microphone is the high voltage (130 V) counterpart to the 4015.  The two microphones are acoustically identical, but differ in their sound level handling.  Due to the higher voltage supplied for the preamplifier via the DPA Type HMA5000, the 4016 can handle 168 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs!

It is designed with a linear on-axis frequency response from 40 Hz (±2 dB) to 20 kHz (+3/-2 dB) at 60 cm, with a soft high frequency lift from 10 to 15 kHz of max. 3 dB.

The off-axis characteristics of the 4016 wide cardioid microphone are totally linear, a unique quality when it comes to authentic sound reproduction.  Any leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources is still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, just softly attenuated.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
