DPA's story - More than half a century of audio mastery
Designing microphones with amazing sound, exceptional consistency and outstanding durability is no easy feat. DPA Microphones draws on more than six decades of world-class microphone design experience. This history starts back in the 1950s, when our predecessor, Brüel & Kjær, developed the first, precisely accurate measurement microphones. Today, sound superiority and technical innovation is still at the heart of everything we do.
In 1992, two entrepreneurial spirits, Ole Brøsted Sørensen & Morten Støve, left Brüel & Kjær and started a transformation that affects the audio industry to this day. They turned the most well-known and accurate measurement microphones in the world into the clearest, truest pro-audio microphones you can purchase today. The 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone was one of the first recording mics DPA developed and is still one of the best-loved recording mics in the world.
After hearing DPA recording mics, professional sound engineers in other segments began to take notice. In particular, the theater market needed a solution that, while still capturing clear sound, was flexible and easily concealable. About this same time, Danish companies were making amazing advances in hearing aid technology; focusing on creating better sound in smaller packages. In order to gain the competencies needed to accomplish this task, DPA collaborated with the Danish hearing aid manufacturer, Muphone.
