  • 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:

            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.

          • Q:

            We recently purchased three BPHS1s to do live podcast/radio shows from a sponsor's store. Two of them work fine but one of them developed a strong white noise. It is definitely coming from the mic, as it is transmitted to the board. The cable is fine (we tried different ones) and it isn't the input (again the other headsets work fine).

            Is this something I can repair easily or do we have a defective headset? Our next show is a week from this Friday and I will need all three operational by then.

          • Q:

            I'm am running a Mac mini. It's a newer model and it comes with a screen recording program called QuickTime Player. I would like to start using your headset to make YouTube videos in combination with Quick Time Player. I would like to know if I need adapters for the jack or a different screen recording program or a different operating system. Also does the microphone come with a sound filter? Thanks for the help

            - also every time I click next on the q&a page it doesn't flip the page, it just collapses the answers. I don't know if it's suppose to do that or I'm doing something wrong but I wanted to let you know.

            Thanks

              Thank you for your inquiry. I do not believe this will work for you. Mac's have a line level input and a mic level input. It would be complicated to get this to work.

              No, the BPHS1 will be stereo as any headphones with two drivers will be stereo. Additional panning and surround features will be post headphone in a DSP.
