Tune Out The Surroundings...

Extensive research and development has been undertaken to optimize the sound coming from the sides and behind the microphone. Minimizing the often very un-linear response of a shotgun microphone due to its side lobes is one of the key accomplishments of the 4017B. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage, pre-polarized back plate which delivers high output as well as wide dynamics and extremely low noise & distortion specifications.

Small Size, Big Performance...

At just 210mm (8.3") in length and 68g (2.4oz) in weight, the aluminum-bodied DPA 4017B is among the smallest and lightest boom microphones available. But that’s not to say that it’s small on performance...

Fully immune to RF emission, the 4017B’s 19mm (0.75") condenser cartridge is capable of handling peak SPLs of 152dB before clipping, and has a wide dynamic range of 116dB across a flat frequency response of 70Hz~20kHz (±2 dB in 60 cm distance).

Screwdriver-Free Filter Access...

The DPA  4017B features two onboard filters that are activated via an ingenious switching ring design. With a simple twist of two sturdy rings, engineers can implement a high-frequency boost that adds a 4dB shelf at 8kHz and a first-order bass roll-off below 120Hz to minimize handling and wind noise. A permanent third-order high-pass filter at 50Hz effectively removes unwanted low frequency disturbance from handling and wind noise.
