Sudden increase self noise DPA


I have had some DPA microphones to try, such as a pair of 2011A, 4011A and 4015A. While I was experimenting with them, I sometimes noticed an increase of self noise with one 2011A and both 4015A, while the preamp gain remained the same. This increase is not permanent; the next time I use them, the extra self noise may be gone. With microphones like Schoeps MK 4 and Neumann KM 184 I have never had a sudden increase of self noise. In all cases I used a Sound Devices 702 as mic preamp/recorder.

Does anyone have had the same experience with this phenomenon?
