  • 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.

          • Q:

            I just bought the BPHS1 headset and I love it, however, I cannot seem to get both the audio input and output to work simultaneously. The audio input seems to override the output, so I can only use one or the other at a time. Is there anyway to troubleshoot this?

              A:

              The microphone on the BPHS1 is a dynamic element and does not require any additional voltage to operate.

          • Q:

            Is there any difference other than cord *length* between the BPHS1 and the BPHS1-XF4? You might want to put the answer to this on the product pages, as it's otherwise a bit confusing.

              A:

              The cable length is the same but the termination of the cables is the difference. The BPHS1 terminates with a 3 pin XLR for the audio microphone output and a 6.5mm TRS connection for the headphone input. The BPHS1-XF4 cable terminates with a 4 pin XLR for communication devices.

              Thank you for your inquiry. If you are plugging in to an interface that has XLR inputs this would work quite well in that application.

          • Q:

            At my job i just started to use this headset for one of our broadcasters during football games. The problem is the microphone he was using had a switch to turn it off and on. Is there any suggestions on what we can get to allow him this control again with this headset. If he should cough or take a drink of water.

              Thank you for your inquiry. There are commercially available mic mute switches such as the Rolls MM11 Microphone Muting Switch Designed to Temporarily Mute a Balanced XLR Signal.

            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.

              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.

            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.
