DPA Microphones

More than half a century of world-class audio quality


Microphones with outstanding sound, exceptional consistency and long-lasting robustness – that is the mission of DPA Microphones. DPA Microphones looks back on more than six decades of experience in designing first-class microphones. The company’s history began in the 1950s, when its predecessor company Brüel & Kjær developed the first precision measurement microphones. Today, uncompromising sound quality and technological innovation are still the focus of attention.

The right solution for every application

Whether for film and radio, in the theater or live concerts, at lecterns, in churches or on the Mars Rover: DPA Microphones offer the right solution for a wide range of applications and provide incomparably good sound.

Designed for individual sound

From body-worn miniature microphones to high-end studio microphones, intelligent mounting solutions and more – DPA offers the right microphone for all audio requirements.

In focus: Research and (further) development

For about ten years DPA has been developing unique microphone solutions for new market segments and at the same time continuously optimizing the products already in the portfolio. Since 2015, DPA has increased its focus on the design of new products and is investing even more in research and development. Concealed portable miniature microphones, flexible headsets and top-of-the-line vocal microphones are among the solutions that have been setting new standards in the audio market for many years.

In 2017, the company introduced another groundbreaking technology. CORE by DPA was introduced for miniature lavalier microphones and headset models. The preamplifier technology minimizes distortion, extends the dynamic range and provides even better sound from the already excellent miniature microphones.

Our expert opinion

What makes the microphones from DPA stand out is the fantastic workmanship, the crystal-clear and warm sound and the design. They are really perfect for film sound.

Adrian, Sales Field Service

Working with clip-on microphones has not always been my first choice. But if there is no other way, I resort to DPA. In my opinion their sound is the closest to that of a boompole microphone.
