  • 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 have a Focusrite Scarlett/Sapphire mixing panel. This has XLR style analog microphone inputs. I see that the BPHS1 does not require any voltage bias to the MIC or phantom power. Can you tell me if output of the BPHS1 mic will be enough to get sufficient volume out of the Scarlett/Sapphire mixer please?

              A:

              The "ideal" setup between the headphones and source would be the headphones impedance would be 8x greater than the source impedance. The BPHS1 headphones impedance is 65 ohms. You may contact the interface manufacturer to inquire of their product specifications.

            Hi. I am an instructional designer and I'm looking for a headset that would help me record software simulations. I work on a HP Laptop. Would this microphone be compatible? What hookup would I need or would it just plug into my audio?

              A:

              You will probably need an inline audio interface that will allow for an XLR connection with the microphone and a TRS 1/4" for the headphones.

              You may use the BPHS1 with an iPhone with the proper adapter. Smartphones have a TRRS communications 3.5mm connection and the proper adapter is needed to make the proper connection.

          • Q:

            We purchased three of these headsets to be able to do live broadcasts from our sponsor's store. Two of them work fine; one of them after 2 weeks of use developed a white noise buzzing that makes it unusable. I am sure that:

            --It is only that one microphone (it's not the socket on the board since it produces that sound no matter where it's plugged in)

            --It is not a problem with the cord of the headset (the cord works with the others, and the other cords produce the same problem when attached to that headset)

            --It is not a problem with the headphones (The sound is going out to the board and into the main mix)

            Is there a simple way to fix this? Do we have a defective headset? I would need it replaced or fixed and working by 9am a week from tomorrow.
