Okay, but if this is their touted "game changer," they jumped the shark.

Microphone technology is general is ripe for a whole new way of collecting sound, so color me nonplussed.

They just rubbed me the wrong way with my number one pet peeve: a youtube video that talks about a microphone for [x] minutes and doesn't demo the actual audio from the mic. They do have samples on their site but it doesn't sound great.

Lives for gear
Full samples are on the site ,with all placements
Noise floor of 24-26 dB (A) is never going to please music recordists, but size reduction is helpful for concealment
Lets hope they are robust and can survive handling by Actors having a strop.....
My 4060s were occasionally beheaded by Thesps ripping them off.

Listen to the comparisons that Allen gave in the video I shared above.

These look pretty great. The specs are on point to the 406x mics, so they should integrate very well with other DPA microphones.

For my purposes, these will be desirable if the price point does not exceed the 406x line of mics and for the sake of hiding lav mics on actors. If they cost more than the 406x mics, then I will keep doing what I do and not buy into them, most likely.

FWIW, to my ears, the DPA 4060/ 4061 sounds noticeably better than all the other likely candidates for lav mics on talent. And they are the only lav mics I would use for live music, live music recording or studio recording. They are not just the best lav mics to my ears, but are indeed great all around microphones as far as I am concerned.

So again, the good news is these 6060 mics, according to the specs, will fit right in with the existing DPA mic line.

I do agree these are NOT game changing, UNLESS you routinely hide microphones on actors in difficult situations because the 4060 mic capsules are just a little large/ a little difficult to hide sometimes when compared to the Countryman B6. Indeed, I am forced to guess DPA intended to make a competitive microphone for the B6.
