New live mic aims to apply qualities of other DPA microphones to the stage.

Allerod, Denmark (August 22, 2019) – DPA Microphones has introduced its new 2028 Vocal Microphone, intended for live performance, broadcast and pro AV applications.

According to DPA, the 2028 has been created with an aim toward replicating the sound of the brand’s flagship handheld mic, the 4018 VL, while also addressing challenges of the live stage, like the 4018.

The 2028 features a brand-new fixed-position capsule, as well as a specially designed shock-mount and pop filter. It uses a supercardioid polar pattern, reportedly providing a uniform off-axis response to improve gain before feedback and less mic bleed from sound sources in close proximity.

Both the outer grille and the inner pop filter of the 2028 can be detached and rinsed. The 2028 is offered 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.

The microphone is available for $700 USD.
