A microphone is no better than its capsule
For vocal performers who dare to be heard
Engineered to perform at its utmost best for vocalists on stage, DPA’s d:facto™ Vocal‘s supercardioid capsule (MMC4018V) reproduces every nuance of the human voice transparently, accurately and with consistency.
Its low noise floor, low handling noise, high SPL tolerance and tweaked polar pattern for less feedback make it very adept at handling whatever modern stages can throw at it with ease.Where to buy
For demanding broadcast professionals
Operating in conditions that vary from calm to chaotic, broadcast interviews demand a lot from a microphone. No matter what the context is, ENG sound quality depends on the first link in the transmission chain: the mic capsule.
DPA’s d:facto™ Interview twin-diaphragm omnidirectional capsule (MMC2006V) brings award-winning d:facto sound into the field. The result is an interview mic that captures the moment perfectly.Where to buy

Modularity that gives you stunning sound and unrivalled flexibility
Protect your investment in fantastic sound – change a part, not the whole microphone, when your needs evolve.
DPA d:facto™ is more than a microphone. It’s a modular system designed to keep you sounding good no matter how your requirements for hand held mics might change in the future. You keep your d:facto capsule even if you want to switch from wired to wireless – or from one wireless system to another. After all, the capsule is where great sound starts.
Select a d:facto Grid to suit your production. The d:facto Grid acts as a windshield and protects the capsule from moisture and damage. Watch Paloma Faith perform in the rain using d:facto here.
The d:facto™ microphone comes in two variants based around the capsule: the d:facto Interview and the d:facto Vocal. The d:facto Vocal is a super-cardioid, while the d:facto Interview is omnidirectional to best serve its application for broadcast.
DPA’s ingenious adapter system protects your investment in fantastic sound for years to come by allowing the d:facto to couple with any wireless handle. Wired. Wireless. Wherever.
