Created especially for news and sports broadcasting, the Audio-Technica BPHS2S is a rugged single-ear headset that offers highly intelligible and commanding vocal reproduction, along with the convenience of one-ear monitoring. Its low-profile, closed-back design is based on the ATH-M60x professional monitor headphones and includes the same 45mm large-aperture driver, and premium, memory foam earpad and headband - plus a memory foam temple pad - giving users a high-fidelity headset that's built to last.
The headset's hypercardioid dynamic microphone keeps the pickup focused on the broadcaster's voice, even in loud environments, and is tailored to reproduce that voice with a rich, broadcast-ready sound. The microphone sits at the end of a rigid boom with a strong, flexible gooseneck section that allows the microphone to be easily adjusted and then stay in place. The boom is also designed to swivel forward and back so that the headset can be worn with the mic positioned on either the right or left side.
The headset comes with a 10.8ft detachable cable (BPCB2) with a TA6F connector at the headset and, at the output end, a 3-pin XLRM-type connector for the microphone and a 1/4" connector for the headphones. An unterminated version of the cable (BPCB3) is available separately.
