DPA Microphones Unveils New 2028 Vocal Mic




DPA Microphones added a new member to its microphone lineup, the 2028 vocal microphone. The 2028 delivers for live stage performances, broadcast and pro AV applications.

Reportedly, 2028 has been cohesively 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 unique 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,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones.

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

“We’ve designed this mic so that it sounds like the singer isn’t actually using a mic,” adds Mørch. “You get the full, natural sound of the artist’s voice, not what the microphone ‘thinks’ the artist sounds like. This gives the sound engineer a lot of freedom to be creative – and instead work on crafting a unique sound for the performance based on a clean, natural vocal track.”

With the expected wear-and-tear that comes with live performances, both the outer grille and the inner pop filter of the 2028 can be detached and rinsed. The 2028 comes in three variants; a wired XLR with handle and two wireless mic configurations that are compatible with the industry’s most widely used wireless microphone systems. This includes the SL1 adapter, compatible with Shure, Sony, and Lectrosonics; and the SE2 adapter, compatible with Sennheiser.
