DPA 2028 Vocal Microphone

Meet the newest member of DPA’s vocal mic line up! The 2028 boasts a brand new DPA supercardioid capsule, extremely high gain-before-feedback the smooth, linear off-axis response you can only get from a DPA.

Product Description

The 2028 is available in both wired and wireless using DPA’s SL1 and SE2 adaptor ring system. Unlike the 4018 Vocal Microphone, this is not a modular system but still means you can get fantastic DPA sound in both wired and wireless solutions.

The 2028 sports a supercardioid capsule with the famously flat DPA off-axis response. These off-axis sounds are captured in the most natural way possible giving engineers the opportunity for a much more open sound. The DPA 2028 is road-ready and built to compete with the best of the rest at a price point that belies its superior performance.

A brand new capsule for the 2028, forms an integral part of the mic. It is fixed in its position on top of the shock mount and can’t be dismounted. The newly designed shock mount and pop filter have been developed specifically for the 2028.
