Manufacturer's Description from DPA (B&K)

The 4016 wide cardioid microphone is the high voltage (130 V) counterpart to the 4015-TL. The two microphones are acoustically identical, but differ in their sound level handling. Due to the higher voltage supplied for the preamplifier via the DPA HMA5000, the 4016 can handle 168 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs!
 
It is designed with a linear on-axis frequency response from 40 Hz (±2 dB) to 20 kHz (+3/-2 dB) at 60 cm, with a soft high frequency lift from 10 to 15 kHz of max. 3 dB. Any leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources is still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, just softly attenuated.
