  • Overview

    Created especially for on-air news & sports broadcasting, announcing & interviews, this rugged stereo headset offers natural, highly intelligible and focused vocal reproduction, closed-back circumaural (around-the-ear) ear cups to seal out background noise, and a high-output dynamic microphone mounted on a flexible gooseneck boom.

    The headset’s microphone has a cardioid polar pattern tailored for pickup of speech with maximum voice intelligibility over a wide range of frequencies. It is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in reducing pickup of unwanted sounds. The flexible gooseneck boom swivels for easy positioning on either the right or left side.

      Comments about Audio-Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset:

      I have been using this product for over two years now and have purchased three sets to use for our online broadcasting radio show. Marked down a little in durability because the first set purchased seems to be squeaking when moving head and the sound is picked up on the mic. A fourth set we ordered the mic did not work and not sure as to why. Overall, an excellent product for radio broadcasting.

          Comments about Audio-Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset:

          Hi there, I have previous reviews regarding that I stopped using gaming headsets, but sometimes a headset is a must while working in noisy rooms, since I am very satisfied with my others AT products, I decided to give a try a new headset but this time a professional level one.

          When I received my unit and unboxed it, I was amazed by the build quality just like my others AT products, when I plugged the headset to a USB audio interface/mixer I was stunned with the overall performance of this unit, almost flat and crystal clear headphone audio reproduction with lots of power to spare (1,600mW), and the high output dynamic microphone response is exceptional.

          Definitely I will recommend this unit to all who want's a high performance professional headphone followed by a high quality cardioid dynamic microphone, because no common/gaming headset will not even reach this headset specifications and performance.

          Note: This is a professional level equipment and may require a professional audio interface, such a USB/Firewire mixer for use it with computers.

            Hi,
            Can these be used with a USB jack plugged into a computer? If not what headline can you recommend with USB for recording directly into a computer.

              Thank you for your inquiry.

              The BPHS1 do not integrate a USB connection but you may use an external USB sound card that would allow you to plug the BPHS1 into and connect via USB into your computer. Check with your local Authorized Audio-Technica dealer for compatible products.

            Gooseneck "twists"

            Thanks to a heavy-handed talk show host, the gooseneck / mic boom on one of my BPHS1 headsets is loose, it twists to where the mic points in all sorts of directions. Is there user-serviceability for this, a way to possibly tighten it to keep it from twisting? BTW, this is the only one of 8 headsets this has happened to, and only because of user error.

          • Q:

            Is this microphone used in a product with USB connection?

            I do screen-share podcasts, so I'd like a cardioid noise canceling headset microphone, like the one in the BPHS1. Does AT use this microphone in any other headsets that have a USB interface?

            compatibility with Ham radios

            Can this headphone/mic combination be used with Kenwood TS-2000 ham radio and if so where do I get the adapter cords
            Asked on 1/15/2015 by Roscoe

            1 answer

            • A:

              The BPHS1 was not designed with ham radio use in mind. We are not aware of any adapter to adapt the balanced 3-pin XLR mic output connector to the 8-pin MIC connector on your radio. The impedance of the headphones is higher than the range recommended by Kenwood.

          • Q:

            Can this headset be used with the Xbox One?

            I have a 3.5mm splitter that splits into two 3.5mm jacks - one for headphones and one for a microphone. If I plug this splitter into the Xbox One chat adapter onto the Xbox controller, can I use adapters to use this headset with it?

            Also, would I need to run the mic through a preamp, or can I plug it directly into my Xbox?

            Connection Compatibility

            I have a four channel mixer, which is connected to my computer through the mic connection. I can plug in the XLR connection of the headset into the mixer, but can I plug the 6.3 mm connection with an 3.5mm adapter into the headphone jack into my PC to hear the audio coming from the pc in the headset?

            1 answer

            • A:

              To use the 1/4" headphone portion of the BPHS1 with a 3.5mm (1/8th inch) connection, one would need a step-down (1/4" to 1/8") headphone adapter, such as the Hosa MHE100.5. You can always contact an Authorized ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) Dealer to ask about a headphone step-down adapter. There is an Authorized ATUS Dealer List and Locator on www.audio-technica.com.

              However, you might want to look into sending the headphone output of your computer into your mixer. This way, you would likely not need an adapter for a BPHS1.

              If you have any further questions, or for any further correspondence, please contact the ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) Audio Solutions Team at audio-solutions@atus.com, and include both your original question and this response.

              Thanks!

          • Q:

            Would audio played over the headphones be picked up on the microphone? If so, how severe?

            Examples would be real-time monitoring of the microphone (at worst a feedback loop), or sounds from a game/video/voip-call.

            • A:

              Thank you for your inquiry. That depends upon how loud the source audio is. The headphone offers passive isolation, so low frequencies at loud volumes could be picked up by the microphone. Since the microphone is a dynamic microphone its sensitive should be such to minimize pick up from the headphones.

            • A:

              No, it will not. The microphone element on the BPHS1 is a dynamic type element. A dynamic type microphone element does not require power to operate.
