Chord DM02 Dynamic Vocal Microphone



The Chord DM02 is a cost-efective Dynamic Vocal Microphone, featuring a hypercardioid pick-up pattern, and may be susceptible to the bass boosting proximity effect (This has nothing to do with the build quality or the cost, it’s just something that happens with directional mics). Remember to keep a nice distance from mouth to mic to maximise quality.

The DM02 has a great frequency response and could be used equally as well for vocal use or for miking up an instrument. Even drums won’t give this mic a hard time thanks to its maximum sound pressure level of 144 dB it can take a lot of loud audio over a long term without breaking it.

Hypercardioid mics aren’t as bad as figure 8 microphones but this type of microphone does suffer from the bass boosting proximity effect. If this is going to be a problem for you then you may want to consider an omnidirectioal mic instead. We’re always here to offer free advice and help you make the perfect microphone choice for any budget and any application so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

As with most handheld microphones of a decent quality, the Chord DM02 comes with an XLR output. Making it suitable for all professional sound equipment with balanced microphone inputs. Although this is an entry level microphone, you’ll still get great sound from it and it has a presence boost feature too which will really help with vocal intelligibility. This microphone is very popular amongst our DJ and Karaoke customers thanks to it’s low cost the impact on your cash flow is limited.

A rugged build quality and high tolerance to high audio levels also make it a great pro audio mic. The fact that it comes with a nice little carry case, and a 4m XLR lead, increases this mics value for money. Part of the DJ world is working with social clubs and you’ll find this microphone in lots of them around the UK. The versatility and robustness results in this being a great choice for the social club world.
