Clean, intelligible sound is key when a speaker is addressing a crowd. d:screet™ SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphones deliver high intelligibility. This combines controlled directionality with rejection of background noise. These microphones are designed around d:screet™ Miniature Microphone Capsules and interference tube technology.

d:screet™ SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphones are available with a MicroDot connector. This makes them suitable for a wireless setup. No more cables across the stage; simply connect the podium microphone with a wireless transmitter. Your stage setup is more flexible than ever.

d:screet™ SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphones offer extraordinarily high speech intelligibility and clarity of voice. They provide linear, natural sound combined with an elegant visual look of Scandinavian design.

Boom pole lengths and gooseneck choices can be tailored for specific requests. Standard types, 30 cm (12 in) and 45 cm (18 in) with top and bottom goosenecks, are available in black. The short 15 cm (6 in) variant is ideal for table or hanging applications and comes in both black and white.


The SC4098 Supercardioid Podium Microphone is available in many variants. It comes in either black or white, with either an XLR or a MicroDot termination and in five lengths ranging from 16 cm (6 in) to 122 cm (48 in).
