IBC 2019: Audio-Technica unveils updated MicroSet microphones

Audio-Technica is showing its new BP892x, BP893x and BP894x MicroSet headworn microphones (updated versions of its BP892, BP893 and BP894 models) for the first time in Europe at IBC between 13-17 September.

Primary improvements include detachable cables and more secure ear loops for comfort and fit. All models will be available with a variety of terminations for wired, Audio-Technica and third-party wireless systems and are available in black or beige finishes.

Audio-Technica’s high-SPL BP892x MicroSet microphone features a subminiature omnidirectional condenser capsule designed to deliver extremely intelligible, natural audio with a flat, extended frequency response that is ideal for stage and television talent, lecturers and worship leaders. The ultra-lightweight and inconspicuous BP892x hooks securely behind either ear and can be worn for hours without fatigue. For maximum stability and comfort, the included AT8464x dual-ear adapter kit converts the MicroSet to a dual-ear-worn unit.

The BP893x MicroSet, with its unobtrusive 5cm boom, is a high-SPL omnidirectional condenser headworn microphone that offers inconspicuous, under-the-ear placement, along with clear, natural vocal pickup. Its lightweight, low-profile design also makes the microphone ideal for use by stage and television talent, lecturers, worship leaders and others.

Meanwhile, the high-SPL, low-profile BP894x MicroSet subminiature cardioid condenser headworn microphone follows suit. The microphone features a rotating capsule housing with talk-side indicator for superior polar pattern placement and is designed to provide excellent rejection of outside noise, with exceptional gain-before-feedback when used with live sound systems and stage monitors.

All three MicroSet models will be available in Europe from September.
