Common name: DPA Microphones 8011

Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage

A successor to the 8010 the 8011 is the only 48V phantom powered waterproof microphone specially designed to handle the high sound pressure levels and high static ambient pressure in water and other fluids. The Hydrophone uses a piezo-electric sensing element which is frequency compensated to match the special acoustic conditions under water. A 10m high-quality audio cable is vulcanised onto the body of the Hydrophone and fitted with a standard 3-pin XLR. The 8010 Hydrophone is the ultimate choice for professional sound recordings in water, or under other extreme conditions where conventional microphones would be adversely affected.
