DPA Microphones is celebrating its 25 th anniversary in 2017. Originally called Danish Pro Audio, the company was founded in 1992 by Morten Stove and Ole Brosted Sorensen, who had worked together at Brüel & Kjær (B&K), a Danish multinational engineering and electronics company. When B&K shut down its pro audio department, Stove and Brosted took over its sales, service, and development of high-end microphones for broadcast and recording. Stove and Brosted teamed up with Dan Ingemann Jensen and Jens Jørn Stockholm from DanaBallerina in 1995 and co-developed the DPA 4060 and 4061 miniature microphone. These microphones were an early success for DPA and became widely used in the theatre world, includ- ing on Broadway and in London’s West End. The DPA 4066 headset mic, released in 1998, quickly became a go-to in the professional audio industry. Today, DPA Microphones manufactures vocal, instrument, and studio microphones, as well as broadcast and sur- round-sound microphones. In addition to theatres on Broad- way and in London’s West End, numerous musical artists have used DPA microphones on stage, including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry, Michael Bublé, Robbie Williams, Herbie Hancock, The Rolling Stones, Sting, and Seal.
