DPA 4099 clip mic wins TEC Award for outstanding technical achievement

4 November 2009

DPA has won a 2009 TEC Award for outstanding technical achievement in professional audio product design for the 4099 clip microphone. The DPA 4099, launched in September 2008, won in the Microphone Technology/Sound Reinforcement category, reinforcing the positive market reaction and surge in demand that has greeted the mic since its launch.

"This award is well-deserved recognition for the DPA design team," says Morten Stove, DPA’s founder and director of sales and marketing. "Our designers have earned TEC Award nominations in the past, and we are very happy that the 4099 has been successful in winning one of this year’s awards."

TEC Awards nominations are made by a panel of industry professionals and voted upon by members of various professional organisations and audio industry websites. The award ceremony was held at a special event during the 127th AES convention in New York.

DPA 4099 condenser mics and mounting systems are designed for a wide range of instruments, including guitar, violin, trumpet and sax. Representing years of R&D, the 4099 features supercardioid polar patterns for superior gain-before-feedback. Capable of handling intense SPLs, it shares the same high quality and transparent sound characteristics as DPA’s other world-class microphones.

Tiny, discreet and lightweight, the 4099 is extremely rugged, and the versatile gooseneck provides stable positioning. The mic can be easily unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand, while the mounting system is designed to leave no mark on precious instruments. New instrument clips to fit the 4099 will be available in the New Year.
