AES 2013: Audio-Technica debuts new BP894 Microphone

Inspired by Audio-Technica’s popular BP892 MicroSet, the new BP894 features a rotating capsule housing with talk-side indicator for use on either ear and perfect polar pattern placement.

The MicroSet BP894 is designed for house of worship, broadcast, and theatre sound applications and allows the cardioid capsule to be aimed directly at the sound source (i.e. the microphone faces the mouth, rather than facing forward like other options on the market). The uniform pickup pattern provides excellent rejection of outside noise, with exceptional gain-before-feedback when used with live sound systems and stage monitors.

Featuring an inconspicuous and ergonomic design, the BP894 MicroSet (available in both black and theatre beige) rests comfortably behind the ear and can be worn for hours without fatigue.

The BP894 comes with the AT8464 Dual-Ear Microphone Mount which can be attached to provide maximum stability and with its high-SPL capability (135 dB), it is particularly ideal for high-volume motivational speakers/lecturers, pastors and stage actors. Frequency response is 20Hz to 20kHz.
