Designing microphones with amazing sound, exceptional consistency and outstanding durability 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, when DPA’s predecessor, Brüel & Kjær, developed the first, precisely accurate measurement microphones. Today, sound superiority and technical innovation is still at the heart of everything we do.
In 1992, two entrepreneurial spirits, Ole Brøsted Sørensen & Morten Støve, left Brüel & Kjær and started a transformation that affects the audio industry to this day. They turned the most well-known and accurate measurement microphones in the world into the clearest, truest pro-audio microphones you can purchase today. The 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone was one of the first recording mics DPA developed and is still one of the best-loved recording mics in the world.
Bubblebee Industries has been “Making Sound Sound Better,” creating high-quality microphone wind protection and sound accessories for the major sound industries across the globe since 2011.
Based in Denmark, Bubblebee Industries was founded by Poul Mejer, a veteran sound mixer specialising in reality TV productions.
Poul needed a windscreen for his lavalier microphone that was practical, aesthetically pleasing, and would retain as much of the microphone’s natural sound as possible, whilst effectively protecting the microphone from wind noise. Hence, “The Windbubble” was created. World-renowned, and used for wind protection in the major sound industries including location sound, film, broadcast, and live music. It also caters for other industries such as, corporate, podcasting & mobile journalism (Mojo).
Bubblebee has since created other innovative accessories for sound recordists such as, The Invisible Lav Covers, The Lav Concealers, The Spacer Bubble and The Cable Saver.
These exceptional products are “Designed by sound lovers for sound lovers,” and their quality is ensured through vigorous testing.
