With its ergonomically molded earpiece and unobtrusive one-inch boom, Audio-Technica’s BP893 MicroEarset offers inconspicuous placement along with clear, natural vocal pickup. Its lightweight low-profile design makes the microphone ideal for use in theatrical performances, houses of worship and broadcast studios.
The BP893 MicroEarset is positioned unobtrusively over the ear. Its omnidirectional miniature condenser capsule offers outstanding pickup tailored for natural vocal reproduction, with audio reproduction similar to that of a high-quality lavalier microphone. The microphone is also ideal for use in violin pickup; wear the BP893 over the ear as usual, with no need for clamps on the violin.
With its ultra light weight of 2g and a capsule diameter of 2.6mm, the BP893 ear-worn microphone is one of the lightest and most discreet microphones of its type on the professional audio market. It sits comfortably on the earlobe, and the extremely unobtrusive one-inch flexible boom sits discreetly over the face, with the 2.6mm pinhead capsule at the end.
The omnidirectional electret capsule provides a clear and natural voice reproduction, similar to that of a high-quality lavalier microphone. Its sleek design makes it ideal for use in theatre, places of worship and broadcast studios.
The tubular AT8539 phantom power module that comes with the BP893 is equipped with a low-cut filter that provides excellent low-frequency attenuation, thereby improving the quality of the sound recording, without compromising voice quality.
