CORE is a powerful new technology at the heart of DPA miniature microphones. We’ve minimized distortion. From a whisper to a scream, you will experience increased clarity and openness.

CORE is available for select models of d:screet™ Miniature Microphones as well as d:fine™ Headset Microphones Series.  Learn more about CORE

And when you make the switch, you won't hear any loss or change in sound quality due to the narrow production tolerances of the mics.

The d:fine™, d:screet™ and d:vote™ series of miniature microphones work with all leading wireless mic solutions, such as Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Zaxcom and many more.
