Types 4160 and 4180 are both high stability condenser microphones for laboratory standard applications and in coupler measurements.

Laboratory standard microphones
Pressure and Free Field Reciprocity Calibrations
Coupler measurements


Well defined integral front cavities for coupler calibrations
Low hydrogen leakage from front cavity
Well-defined operating characteristics
Flat Frequency Pressure Responses up to: 4160: 8kHz/4180: 20 kHz
Artificially aged for long term stability
Low sensitivity to environmental changes

Type 4160 has been used for some time in such applications and conforms to IEC 327 and 402, ANSI S1.12-1967 and ANSI Sl.lO-1966, JIS C 5515, and the current IEC draft standard for 1” laboratory standard microphones. It has become established as a high precision reference standard and is used in the medium frequency ranges and for measurements at low sound pressure levels.

Type 4180 has been developed to meet a growing need for a laboratory standard ½" microphone which enables measurements at higher frequencies and at higher sound pressure levels. It has been designed to comply with the most recent drafts of laboratory standard microphone standards. Types 4160 and 4180 are delivered with individual calibration charts.
