At a recent gathering at the Technical University of Denmark’s DTU Skylab, Denmark’s top sound companies celebrated DPA Microphones as the first-ever company to receive the Danish Sound Award. Presented to professionals that drive innovation in the industry, the Danish Sound Award sheds light on the globally outstanding audio technology developed in the country.
The prize celebrates those who have rethought the use and understanding of sound or have further developed and strengthened Denmark’s position as a leading nation in sound technology. Special attention goes to nominees that have contributed to the community with entirely new paths in the use of sound or have done something remarkable to showcase Danish sound expertise internationally.
“DPA has made an extraordinary effort to get Danish sound products known abroad and has, at the same time, had impressive financial results year after year,” said Mads Jakobsen, the mayor of Struer, while presenting the award. “Building on a strong heritage, DPA has achieved a prominent market position because of high technical competencies. [It is] a well-respected brand used by well-known artists and organizations around the world. DPA is a solid and worthy representative for the Danish sound industry.”
