If you are already a fan of DPA Microphones' 4011, you will discover an exciting alternative in their wide cardioid microphones. The phantom powered DPA 4015A wide cardioid differs in its polar pattern and is the perfect fill-in between an omni and a more directional microphone. Sometimes a conventional cardioid pattern isn’t quite open enough, such as when recording instruments with complex radiation patterns. In those instances, the generous polar pattern of our Compact Wide Cardioids allows you to pick up a broader sound field and more accurately capture the full breadth of a performance.

Limitless applications
Recording orchestras or other ensembles sometimes requires a compromise between blending in the room reverberation and a more precise localization. The wide cardioid (also known as hemispheric) design covers a greater sound angle and is an excellent choice for grand piano, guitar, marimba, and percussion, or as a spot mic for groups in a symphony orchestra. Likewise, it is an excellent speech, dubbing, or vocal mic as its enhanced richness on the bass end nicely compliments many voices.

Completely linear, even off-axis
The off-axis characteristics of the 4015A 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.

Specialists in extreme sound levels
DPA’s wide cardioid microphones are capable of handling extremely high sound pressure levels before clipping occurs. The 4015A even includes a 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to prevent overloading of the mic amp.
