  • Overview


    The BP893-TH has been updated. Click here for more information on the newest model.

    With its ergonomically molded earpiece and unobtrusive one-inch boom, Audio-Technica’s BP893-TH MicroEarset offers inconspicuous placement along with clear, natural vocal pickup. Its lightweight low-profile design makes the microphone ideal for use in theatrical performances, houses of worship and broadcast studios.

    The BP893-TH MicroEarset is positioned unobtrusively over the ear. Its omnidirectional miniature condenser capsule offers outstanding pickup tailored for natural vocal reproduction, with audio reproduction similar to that of a high-quality lavalier microphone. The microphone is also ideal for use in violin pickup; wear the BP893-TH over the ear as usual, with no need for clamps on the violin.
