I'm coming off of a bit of a break from taping, and figured I might treat myself to some new gear. I was looking into  >:D options, and came across the DPA 4060/4061 Slim, which come with this shirt button mount that seems unbelievable discreet. Does anyone have any experiences with these? I'm more curious in folks' thoughts on the mounts, as we all know that these DPA mics are excellent choices (DPA claims the elements in the slims are the same as the prior versions). Even if you don't have any first hand experience, I'm still curious to hear what people think.

This video from DPA is the best visual I could find that displays the mount: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvmuCallBPc

 I recco using a hat or collar mount more. You can easily get better separation for the omnis. I used to use a hat quite a bit, now mostly go with dpa clips mounted under my collar towards the front of the shirt. Mics go in thru the side of the collar and all the wiring is out of the way for shows that there is more contact with the audiience than you'd like.

One thing to consider with the slim 406x is that they are side, and not end, addressed.  That might make it more difficult to place them. 

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about stealthing any version of the 4060s.  They are so tiny and unobtrusive...

Or easier, depending.  I've not used them, but I've thought about ways in which they might be beneficial for me because of that. 

Note that when inserted into the hard rubber boundary mount adapter, the regular 406x also becomes a side address microphone, which is one of the ways I use them.  I don't know if the standard boundary mount adapters work with the slim variants or not.  I don't think they make a special boundary mount for the slims.  Of course they can be simply taped to a boundary and work as a boundary mounted mic that way, but the DPA hard rubber boundary adapter provides protection and also provides some resistance to fabric noise, although not as much as the DPA concealers with some fabrics.
