Audio-Technica BPHS2 Broadcast Stereo Headset Audio-Technica has released the BPHS2 Broadcast Stereo Headset for news and sports broadcasting.

The BPHS2 is based on the ATH-M60x on-ear professional monitor headphones, using the same proprietary 45mm large-aperture drivers. This rugged stereo headset offers a low-profile, closed-back, on-ear design, and is available in three configurations – the standard BPHS2 stereo and the BPHS2S single-ear versions both with a hypercardioid dynamic mic, and the BPHS2C stereo with a condenser mic. Premium memory foam earpads and a headband provide comfort for extended wearing and durability and detach for easy replacement.

The standard BPHS2 features a high-output, hypercardioid dynamic microphone mounted on a rigid boom with a strong, flexible gooseneck section. Created especially for news and sports broadcasting, this rugged stereo headset offers highly intelligible and commanding vocal reproduction, along with a comfortable fit and excellent sound isolation. 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 BPHS2S is a single-ear version of the dynamic-mic standard BPHS2 – offering added comfort and less isolation. Both headsets come with a 3.3m 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 6.3mm connector for the headphones.

The BPHS2C is nearly identical to the BPHS2, but with a sleek, high-output, cardioid condenser microphone rather than the hypercardioid dynamic mic. The condenser mic provides a lower profile design with added articulation and fidelity.  Each headset is available unterminated as the BPHS2-UT, BPHS2S-UT and BPHS2C-UT.
