Why Choose DPA? The story of DPA Microphones starts many years prior to their official existence on paper. This company owes its beginning to former Danish microphone manufacturer Brüel & Kjær (B&K) some five decades earlier. B&K specialized in producing high-quality reference measurement microphones. This same attention to detail and quality reflect the products that DPA make today. With the ultimate goal of producing the world’s finest microphone products available, no shortcuts in the design process or compromises are made. All products are still manufactured in Denmark.

Along with their reference standard series, DPA also offers microphone solutions for all types of instruments, miniature wireless microphones, headset microphones and several surround sound configurations. The most recent announcement is a new super cardiod condenser vocal microphone capable of handling high SPL, low self noise with great off-axis rejection bridging the gap between the stage performance and the studio recording.
