  • 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

    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.

    is there a mute button or position for the mic?


    Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately there is no mute button for the BPHS1.

    How can I buy the handset?


    Thanks for your inquiry. You can buy the BPHS1 through our website or any dealers that carry this product.

    Which valour pads should I buy to put on this headset?


    Thank you for your inquiry. You may contact our Parts Department at or call (330) 686-2600 ext 5002. to inquire about a replacement earpads if you are located in the US.


    What velour pads should I purchase for these?


    Thank you for your inquiry. You may contact our Parts Department at or call (330) 686-2600 ext 5002. to inquire about a replacement if you are located in the US.


    I have a Focusrite Scarlett/Sapphire mixing panel. This has XLR style analog microphone inputs. I see that the BPHS1 does not require any voltage bias to the MIC or phantom power. Can you tell me if output of the BPHS1 mic will be enough to get sufficient volume out of the Scarlett/Sapphire mixer please?


    The "ideal" setup between the headphones and source would be the headphones impedance would be 8x greater than the source impedance. The BPHS1 headphones impedance is 65 ohms. You may contact the interface manufacturer to inquire of their product specifications.
