DPA Introduces The 2028 Vocal Microphone

DPA Microphones has debuted the 2028 Vocal Microphone, a hand mic that delivers high quality sound in live stage performances and broadcast applications.

On a live stage, DPA said the 2028 needs no (or very little) EQ. This allows the artist to hone-in on their vocals as if not using a microphone, which puts less strain on the voice. The transparency of the 2028 allows engineers to shape the sound experience rather than cover up issues caused by artifacts.

The 2028 was designed to provide the same sound as the brand’s flagship handheld mic, the 4018 VL. It has also been optimized, like the 4018, for the challenges of the live stage.

“We have seen a need for an excellent vocal microphone that has the sonic qualities of our d:facto 4018 Series, but at a lower price-point,” said René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. 

The 2028 features a new fixed-position capsule, as well as a shock-mount and pop filter. It exhibits a supercardioid polar pattern with uniform off-axis response. This gives the microphone a high-gain-before-feedback and makes it easier to handle bleed from other instruments in close proximity.
