The DPA 2028 Vocal Supercardioid Handheld Microphone is designed for the unique challenges of live stage performances. It can be utilized to capture audio and deliver a transparent, natural vocals for live stage, theater, and broadcast applications.
The 2028 is powered by 48V phantom power and the supercardioid capsule offers a flat off-axis response. This give the microphone a very high gain-before-feedback, and at the same time, makes it so much easier for sound engineers to handle bleed from other instruments at close proximity. The capsule is fixed in its position on top of the newly designed shockmount and can’t be dismounted. The pop filter is specific for the 2028 microphone.
Furthermore, on a live stage, the 2028 needs no (or very little) EQ to sound just like you are standing next to the singer listening to their performance. This allows the singer to use their voice just as if no mic was present. In addition, it allows sound engineers to spend their time shaping the sound experience rather than covering up due to artifacts.
