"The Clippy XLR EM172 is 6 dB more sensitive and 8 dB lower in noise than a DPA4060 for a fraction of the price, what's not to like!" GH, London

Plugging in these small and “cheap” microphones put a big grin on my face. Great build quality and very quiet when used with my Sound Devices mixer/recorder. Mats O, Sweden
