  • 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.

    Maybe. Only if my issue is resolved.


    First of all this product is by far the best for under $800. Yeah I said $800. These guys rock and I own 4 sets. The sound and ambient background noise it picks up while bringing out your bass when shout casting is ideal and probably one of the better sounding broadcaster headsets out there. HOWEVER, I just can't see myself buying anymore when the gooseneck arm for the mic becomes way too loose too quick. It never stays up and slowly drops while talking. It then starts to squeak. If there was a way to fix/resolve this then I would give 5 stars all day long. I'm returning 3 of the 4 and hopefully they can fix or replace them or something because 3 of the 4 failed within 3 months.

    Excellent for Broadcasting


    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.


    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.

  • Q & A

    Recently bought a BPHS-1 and the speakers work but the microphone does not appear to work. Tried on multiple mixers, no audio goes out from the set when talking into the microphone.


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    I've just purchased the BPHS1, and have a couple of scenarios that I want to use it for. The first is through a Tascam iXR USB interface to my computer for podcasting and recording. The second is through a Tascam DR100MK111 PCM field recorder. Both the iXR and the field recorder require a 3.5mm headphone jack. I have a 1/4inch to 3.5mm adapter which I use for other purposes with no problem. However, when I use it with the BPHS1 I am getting massive amounts of hum (sounds like poor grounding) over the headphones which is also being recorded on both/either device. I tested the 1/4 inch cable using the 1/4 inch line out on the iXR and the hum was still there, so I'm not actually convinced it's the adapter causing the problem. Could it be that I've received a defective BPHS1 cable? Or something else entirely? Thanks - PB

    I have a Beringer Xenyx 802, Audio-Technica BPHS1, MXL V67 mic. Some info on each item (All should be post 2010 and are in great condition and work as intended): Beringer Xenyx 802 which supplies +48 V Phantom Power Audio-Technica BPHS1 dynamic mic headset MXL V67 condenser mic I'd like to connect both mics into the Xenyx 802 so I can use them in tandem. I understand that the MXL needs Phantom Power, and the BPHS1 does not. So here is the question: Does connecting both mics into the Xenyx 802 with Phantom Power switched on damage the BPHS1? Thank you in advance.


    No, phantom power will not damage a dynamic microphone such as the BPHS1.


    Is there a way to attach some flag for branding to this headset mic? I've seen some mic muffs with logos, but that's for mics in-line with the boom from the headset.


    Some people have flagged the back of the microphone if they are on camera with some type of branding but would not be anything via Audio-Technica.


    Is there an adapter or replacement cord for the BPHS1 headset w mic combo to go into a usb? I have a set of these for my podcast and also work at HP computers. the Jabra headphones we use for the phones are not great and I love my audio technicas. Is there anything I can do to get those to work?


    No there is not. You would need to use some type of A/D converter.


    Is there a way to use the Audio-Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset with Dynamic Boom Mic with a 5-pin xlr connection?


    No, we do not.


    Can this be used as a headset for a smartphone with a 3.5mm audio jack?


    Thank you for your inquiry. No unfortunately this headset is not designed to be used with a 3.5mm connection on a smartphone. I would recommend one of the following models which can be used as a headset on a smartphone or computer: ATH-PG1, or ATH-PDG1.


    Hello, I'd like to buy 4 of these to use for a director to camera operator (3) system in our broadcast studio. Would you recommend that solution?


    Thank you for your inquiry. If you have the proper equipment to connect to this should work in this application


    How can I order a replacement cable for a BPHS1 headset?


    The BPCB1 is available through an Authorized Audio-Technica Dealer.


    Hi, I'm a kit drummer who also sings backing vocals, would the headphones cut out enough ambient sound so I can hear a click track whilst playing please? Are you aware of any drummers who use these? The audio jacks these headphones use fit my other equipment. Many thanks


    Thanks for your inquiry. These headphones are for podcast purpose only. We do not recommend the BPHS1 for this purpose. You should get a pair of monitoring headphones and have a separate microphone if you wish to sing background vocals while playing drums. I would recommend the M40x or M50x for headphones, and the Pro61 or ATM610a for microphones.
