Anywhere you look in the entertainment industry, you will find DPA mics at work. In fact, modern-day news broadcasting is only possible due to the convenience of miniature and headset mics. Even contemporary orchestras use DPA mini mics to deliver amazing sound to the audience. Close miking individual instruments bring their unique sounds to the forefront. Designing microphones with amazing sound, exceptional consistency and outstanding reliability is no easy feat. DPA Microphones draws on more than six decades of world-class microphone design experience. This history starts back in the 1950s. Our predecessor, Brüel & Kjær, developed the first, precisely accurate measurement microphones. This started us on the path of challenging industry standards. Today, sound superiority and technical innovation is at the heart of everything we do. This history of precision and perfection continues to define DPA Microphones to this day. Each microphone is assembled by hand at our state-of-the-art factory in Denmark. It takes at least 200 individual, hands-on steps to assemble a DPA microphone. During the process, each one is calibrated up to 15 times before final approval. Narrow tolerances ensure that you can switch between any parallel DPA mics and never hear a difference in sound. You can be certain that the mics you buy from DPA Microphones will be the best ones you will ever use. Grab your favorite DPA microphone, close your eyes and listen. That sound you hear is TRUE SOUND – delivered honestly and passionately.
The five-year warranty is valid for the following microphones: The d:facto™ Vocal Microphone with the 4018V capsule and all d:dicate™ microphones except the 2006 and 2011.
If you need to have your microphone repaired, please contact the place where you purchased your microphone and they will send the microphone to the nearest authorized DPA service center. It will undergo test and repair at the service center. After the repair, the microphone will be returned to you clean and buffed.
Matched stereo pairs that are sent in for repair are rematched. Surround-matched kits will be returned to the factory in Denmark to undergo a multi-match calibration.
If the microphone is covered by the warranty, this service is free of charge. For out-of-warranty repairs, a service fee will apply.
Your purchase invoice serves as your warranty registration. The invoice must state the date of purchase as well as name and serial number of the product.
The five-year warranty is valid for microphones bought after Jan. 1, 2009.
DPA adapters are covered by warranty for a period of two years. The same procedure applies for adapter repairs as written above.
DPA Microphones A/S complies fully with Directive 2011/65/EC on the Restriction of Hazardous Materials (RoHS). That is, DPA Microphones A/S confirms that all products supplied from us after July 1, 2006 will meet the requirements of the RoHS directive. All necessary dispositions have been taken in relation with our suppliers to ensure that constitutive materials do not include any substance forbidden by the regulation currently applicable on the market. Our main efforts have been to ensure that all soldering spots are made leadless, but also all components have been screened and substituted when required. This means that all DPA products sold after July 1, 2006 are fully compliant with the RoHS directive with the exception of:
DPA Microphones A/S complies fully with Directive 2012/19/EC on the Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). That is, from Jan. 1, 2006 all DPA products that need to be recycled or handled separately are marked with the WEEE label in accordance with the directive. DPA Microphones A/S is prepared to accept scrapped equipment from customers and sort them for later waste disposal. Since not all equipment is marked with a serial number, it has been decided to accept all earlier sold equipment for waste disposal. Please observe that although DPA is accepting used equipment for service that may later be scrapped, it is a national obligation to fulfill the requirements of the WEEE directive. It is not legal to ship waste products across borders for disposal. Thus, national distributors are obliged to register in accordance with their national legislation. And, as the interpretation of the directive may vary slightly from one area or country to another for which the directive applies, it will be up to the national distributors to accept waste equipment from end users and dispose it according to the national laws. Since the amount (and weight) of waste DPA products is extremely sparse, it is recommended to register on an individual basis.
