  • 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 headsetís 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.

    BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset 5 5 1 1
    Professional High Performance 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. February 1, 2013

    Hello, I need a headset for my cell phone and would like to purchase the BPHS1 to do so. Can I achieve this with mere XLR to 1/8" and 1/4" to 1/8" adapters or do I need some sort of a headphone preamp/mic amp? I am quite interested in finding a way to make this work as this is the best headset around and your advice is much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Answer: 
    Yes, it is possible. I haven't tried using only passive adapters so I can't speak to that, however, I was able to get it to work on my Android phone with a battery powered "IK Multimedia iRig PRE" and a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter which has been working great, I can finally use a proper headset with my cell! Though I haven't tried it, the TASCAM iXZ looks pretty similar too. Good Luck!

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. There would be no easy way to do this. Adapters would be very cumbersome to use on a cell phone.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. It does not have the capability of being connected via USB to a laptop. You could use an XLR to USB microphone interface that also has a headphone output. There are many available, but that is something we do not manufacture.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. Probably not without some type of interface. The headset has 2 connectors, a 3 pin balanced XLR for the microphone and a 1/4" TRS for the headphone.

    This headset microphone is GREAT. We love using it but I noticed that the only way I can mute it is to unplug the XLR cable. Any suggestions?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    You could build a short cable, with a switch in it, using a plastic or metal project box, like the ones TenTec and Raido Shack sell, and then switch the mic on or off at twill. Using a momentary switch would be easy, or use a toggle switch, depending on whether you want to make a momentary change or a longer lasting change. Also, some companies make commercially available and manufactured switches like this.
