AUDIO-TECHNICA DEBUTS AT892 MICROSET™ HEADWORN MIC

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


Anaheim, CA 01-20-2005 WINTER NAMM SESSION — Audio-Technica is introducing the AT892 MicroSet™ subminiature omnidirectional condenser headworn microphone that delivers accurate sound in a tiny package. Representing the latest in miniaturization technology, the MicroSet utilizes a condenser capsule with a diameter of a mere 2.5 mm, making it ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility. In addition, the MicroSet offers an ergonomic, flexible, ultra-lightweight, under-ear design that is both comfortable to wear and highly secure. The MicroSet hooks behind the ear and can be worn for hours without fatigue. Its contoured earpiece stays in place even on the most animated performer/presenter and does not interfere with the user’s eyeglasses. Plus, the MicroSet features the industry-standard Audio-Technica sound that professionals have come to rely on for over 40 years.

Intended for high-quality, low-profile inconspicuous operation, the MicroSet is available in either a non-reflective black or theater-beige finish. It 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.
