2260-W-001 1-Inch Microphone Preamplifier

2260-W-001 1-Inch Microphone Preamplifier

Condenser Microphone Type 4179 and Microphone Preamplifier Type 2660 constitute a unique system for measuring sound pressures well below the nominal 0dB re μPa reference level for acoustic measurements. The 1/3-octave bandwidth inherent noise floor of the complete system at 1 kHz is typically -16dB.


  • Hearing research
  • Monitoring of very low background noise levels
  • Sound power measurement of very-low-level sources
  • Distanced measurement of very-low-level compressor, fan or motor noise where close measurements


  • Very low inherent noise floor of -2,5dB (A). (-7 to -16dB in the ‘/s-octave bands 20 Hz to 20 kHz)
  • High sensitivity: 1 V/Pa
  • Frequency response in accordance with IEC 651, Type 1

Type 2660-W-001 is a modified version og Type 2660 that can be used with PULSE using extension cable WL-1302.
