— AT892 MicroSet™ omnidirectional condenser headworn mic combines minimum visibility, maximum audio quality and comfortable under-ear design —


Stow, OH 12-05-2005 In response to numerous requests from top production professionals, Audio-Technica is pleased to announce the availability of its AT892 MicroSet™ subminiature omnidirectional condenser headworn microphone in a new cocoa color. Designed to provide even greater versatility in situations where the microphone needs to blend in seamlessly and unobtrusively, the new AT892c-CO adds a complementary mid-tone option to the AT892’s currently available colors of classic black (AT892c) and theater beige (AT892c-TH).

The AT892 MicroSet has become a top choice among theater performers, houses of worship, lecturers and broadcasters for its high-quality, low-profile operation and comfortable under-ear design. The new cocoa shade opens up even greater possibilities for use in professional productions and presentations.

Steve Savanyu, Audio-Technica Marketing Manager, comments on the addition to the AT892 models: “Since the MicroSet’s debut, we have received numerous inquiries about available configurations and colors. After careful consideration, we have introduced the new cocoa-color model for situations where black and beige are not as effective. We know that this new addition to the line will bolster the AT892’s growing use among professionals.”

The AT892 MicroSet subminiature omnidirectional condenser headworn microphone delivers accurate sound in a tiny package, representing the latest in miniaturization technology. Utilizing a capsule with a 2.5 mm diameter, the MicroSet offers an ergonomic, flexible, ultra-lightweight, under-ear design that is both comfortable to wear and highly secure. Its contoured earpiece stays in place even on the most animated performer/presenter and is designed to not interfere with the user’s eyeglasses. The AT892 MicroSet provides maximum intelligibility and clean, accurate reproduction for the most demanding church/house of worship user, lecturer, broadcaster or theater performer. Available in a multitude of terminations to work with A-T and other manufacturers' wireless systems, the MicroSet includes two windscreens, two element covers, a cable clip and a protective carrying case.
