Product Details

Dayton Audio EMM-6 Electret Measurement Microphone

The Dayton Audio EMM-6 is a precision electret condenser microphone designed for measurement and critical recording applications. The extremely flat frequency response and true omni-directional polar pattern make it perfect for use with room acoustic analyzers and audio measurement systems. The EMM-6 microphone is individually hand calibrated using a laboratory standard Brüel & Kjær microphone in conjunction with a DAAS computer measuring system. Each microphone includes stand mount, foam windscreen, transport case, and its own unique printed and downloadable calibration response graph and .txt data file (see below).

FREE! Download your unique calibration .txt file.

A unique serialized calibration .txt file is available for the EMM-6. Once you receive your microphone, visit daytonaudio.com where you will be prompted to enter the serial number found on the base of your EMM-6. After entering the serial number, your unique calibration .txt file will be available for you to download.

Specifications: • Capsule type: 6 mm electret condenser • Polar pattern: omni-directional • Frequency response: 18 Hz - 20 kHz • Impedance: 200 ohms between pins 2 and 3 • Sensitivity at 1 kHz into 1K ohm: 10mV/Pa (-40 dBV, re. 0 dB = 1V/Pa) • Max SPL for 1% THD @ 1 kHz: 127 dB • S/N ratio: 70 dB A-weighted • Connector: gold plated XLR • Phantom power: +15V to +48V • Weight: 144 grams.

Dayton Audio EMM-6 Electret Measurement Microphone
Dayton Audio EMM-6 Electret Measurement Microphone is rated 4.85 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Choice for Real Time AnalyzersI bought this measurement mic and used it with Multi-Instrument to form a real time analyzer. The frequency response file of the mic can be loaded into the software so as to further improve the accuracy of frequency response measurement. The result is awesome. Highly recommended for EQing rooms, cars and auditoriums...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck!Recently purchased this measurement mic to see what exactly my studio monitoring system was doing, and am very pleased with the results. The price is amazing, and the delivery was almost instant. Nice product for very little money - a rare occurrence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice qualityBought this to use with TrueRTA. You can download the calibration file and load it right into TrueRTA. Mic comes in a padded box with clip and foam cover. Seems a quality piece and has worked accurately in tests I've seen of the Mic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and product of the highest level.I definitely want to congratulate you for the excellent service offered. The microphones (I have purchased two pieces) are excellent, they have a considerable base of linearity, a sign of good design and control of production, they also have the very substantial surplus value of the calibration, carried out for each piece marked with the serial number. It works, are perfectly linear, on axis.A special note for Parts Express: I ordered two microphones, and they sent me two objects with sequential serial number, one thing that I really appreciated, a sign of professionalism and expertise, as well as kindness. Thank you.Regards, Robert .VREL, Italy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great measurement mics for the priceI do system optimizations for local churches. These mics work great for use with Smaart (or whatever software platform you prefer). Because of the included calibration files, when I pulled all four of my new mics up, they had an almost identical spectrum plot. For this price? That's awesome!

What would be the maximum cable length for this mic ? Could I use a 50 ft cable ?? Thank you, Alex

Asked by: alexmi
This will work fine with a 50 foot cable.

What do you think about using the mic for singing?

Asked by: MrAccident
This would never be a mic I would use for singing through a sound system. It is an omni mic, and feedback would be too easy to induce. You could use it to record vocals, and it might be the best $50 all-around mic you could buy. What other cheap mic has no proximity effect and is proveably without frequency anomalies? Don't use it as a handheld mic and keep singers' faces at least a foot from the capsule.I've used a test mic of similar design for an audience mic. It worked.

In an emergency (or on a permanent basis), what's the downside of connecting a battery for power via pins 2

Ole Phart and Golden Ear (flat to 12kHz)
Asked by: bjc my names is too short
You will need to decouple the DC voltage from the signal lines so DC does not enter the pre -amp.It can cause noise.After market phantom power units have this built in, as do the microphone pre-amps that have phantom power built in.

Do I really need to buy a $100 preamp for a $50 mic

I dont use mic's but I needed to test my speaker designs. Unfortunatly I seem to be caught in a "tar baby" situation. I got the EMM-6. Built the balanced cables. Needed phantom power so I bought the Behringer PS400 $22. True Audio's RTA could not see the EMM-6 on my laptop So researching TA-RTA's HELP told me that the Behringer UCA202 USB adaptor is the way to go. I buy a UCA202 $34. My laptop can now see the EMM-6 but it is way down in the noise <-60 dB at best>. Sheesh. Another answer here suggests a ART USB dual preamp $100. Do I really need all of this equipment to get a micophone <> to work? My laptop sound system has 12 dB boost. Should I use this? Does it degrade the signal with post processing? Seems like using a precision mic and running it through the volume control on a cheep phone.I have tested all the cables and am running phantom power at 48v.
Asked by: Eric
I use a Blue Icicle with my Playstation 3. I also have a $600 digital (SPDIF) mic/instrument preamp that I don't use. Yeah, the Blue Icicle is probably your best bet if you want to use it with a computer. I spent $60 on mine. I have occasionally hooked an oscilloscope up to the other pre-amp to use as an acoustic testing rig. =P

EMM-6 vs Omnimic USB Frequency Response Below 18Hz

I'm wondering if these mics use the same internals. Your site says the Omnimic setup goes down to 5Hz, and the EMM-6 says 18Hz-20KHz. Will the EMM-6 show me bass below 18Hz? I need the best one for ultra low bass response. Which one should I get?
Asked by: MasterODisaster
If certainty in very low bass is what you need, the OmniMic is your choice. Irrespective of whether the "internals" are the same, the OmniMic is a system of hardware and software that has been calibrated to meet or exceed published specs. At the production level, the frequency response of these kind of mics varies. Most of them meet minimum design specs and are sold at that level. Those that have superior performance specs are selected for use as reference mics. From there, other factors, such as case design and tuning, come into play. The EMM-6 is a great bargain but you should not buy it with the expectation that you will have flat coverage below 18hz. An aside: the world of 5hz is an unpredictable place. Unlike 5khz, where smoothing the edge of a surface can have an effect that you can hear, large changes in architecture can be required to effect small changes in response at frequencies below 30hz.

Is this mic suitable for use with a home theater receiver that has audyssey or other automated channel setup features? Thanks.

I have a Denon 2808ci and need a mic to run auto-setup. If this isn't the right product, do you have any other suggestions?
Asked by: jmarchitect
You would have to ask the maker of the receiver. They often purchase microphones that aren't truly flat and compensate with EQ circuitry in the receiver. So while this is an excellent mic- it's output curve may not match that of the electronics within your receiver.
