DPA Microphones is showcasing its new range of microphones at the 2020 NAMM Show (Booth 17910) in Anaheim, California January 16-19, 2020.
2028 Vocal Microphone
The 2028 delivers DPA’s renowned natural sound, which allows all types of vocals to shine. Perfect for everyone from indie artists to international touring singers, the 2028 mic is ideally suited for live stage performances, broadcast and pro AV applications. On a live stage, the 2028 delivers the same sonic qualities as DPA’s other great solutions. In fact, the 2028 needs no (or very little) EQ to sound just like you are standing next to the singer listening to their performance. This allows the artist to hone-in on their vocals as if not using a microphone, which puts less strain on the voice. In addition, the transparency of the 2028 allows engineers to spend their time shaping the sound experience rather than covering up issues caused by artifacts.
Introducing the 6000 Series subminiature high-end pro audio microphones with the CORE by DPA technology. Among these is the lightweight, one-size fits all 6066 CORE Headset that attaches over the ears, has a three-point spring mechanism to grip below the ears and head, and is now also available in brown in addition to the previously released beige and black options. Like the headsets, the 6060 and 6061 CORE Lavaliers also have new color offerings – brown and white, as well as a white eight-way clip.
With stellar audio and a rugged, IP58 water-resistant rating, DPA’s subminiatures have become a notable force among leaders in the industry. This includes sound designers such as Dan Samson, Gareth Fry, Richard Brooker and Gareth Owen—all of whom were surprised by the exceptional sound quality packed into the mics’ small, compact design. Since its introduction to the market, DPA’s subminiature microphones have been used by London’s Royal Academy of Arts; First Baptist Dallas, one of the country’s most prominent megachurches; and Australian-based LSS Productions, to name a few.
4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Microphone
Ideal for house of worship and choir applications, the 4097 provides the same sonic qualities as the brand’s 4099 CORE Instrument Microphone but was designed specifically to capture dynamic choir sound, with both wireless or wired configurations.
The new 4097 Choir Mic also features DPA’s famous flat off-axis supercardioid pattern and, like all DPA microphones, has been designed to be one of the most natural-sounding solutions available. As a result, the microphone has a very high-gain-before-feedback, and due to the off-axis characteristic that DPA is renowned for, it makes the entire choir sound natural – not just on axis – but from all angles. This makes using multiple mics on the choir easy for the sound engineer as he can easily mix the various parts of the choir and blend it all together without having to fight the artifacts created from uneven mic pattern pick-up.
DPA’s New 4560 CORE Binaural Headset Microphone
YouTubers, sound designers, podcasters, vloggers and other content creators, including filmmakers who want to capture authentic immersive audio for their projects, can now do so with ease thanks to the launch of the new 4560 CORE Binaural Headset Microphone from Danish manufacturer, DPA Microphones. The new binaural headset delivers the superior sound quality for which DPA products are internationally renowned. The professional quality of the microphones allows them to capture, in real time, exactly what each ear is hearing so that those listening on headphones can experience the full immersive sound. These qualities are also appealing to other applications such as sound system documentation, soundscape analysis, sound quality assessment, and sound for theatrical productions or gaming, among others. Jazz and classical musicians have also seen the potential in this mic: recording the sound from the performers’ perspective instead of the audience’s is a completely new way of sharing the artists’ sound experience with fans. The result, an ultimate surround experience.
