DPA Microphones

Anywhere you look in the entertainment industry, you will find DPA mics at work. In fact, modern-day news broadcasting is only possible due to the convenience of miniature and headset mics. Even contemporary orchestras use DPA mini mics to deliver amazing sound to the audience. Close miking individual instruments bring their unique sounds to the forefront. 

Designing microphones with amazing sound, exceptional consistency and outstanding reliability is no easy feat. DPA Microphones draws on more than six decades of world-class microphone design experience. This history starts back in the 1950s. Our predecessor, Brüel & Kjær, developed the first, precisely accurate measurement microphones. This started us on the path of challenging industry standards. Today, sound superiority and technical innovation is at the heart of everything we do.
