— The BP892 MicroSet® is ideal for church/house of worship,

quality and inconspicuous design —
STOW, OH, June 23, 2009 — Audio-Technica
introduces the BP892
MicroSet® Subminiature Omnidirectional Condenser Headworn Microphone,
handling high SPL’s and delivering accurate sound in a tiny package.
Representing the latest in miniaturization technology, the new MicroSet
utilizes a condenser capsule with a diameter of a mere 2.6 mm, making
it ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility. In addition,
the BP892 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 45 years.
Intended for high-quality, low-profile inconspicuous operation,
the BP892 MicroSet features a new highly durable Parylene coating in
either a non-reflective black or theater-beige finish. The microphone
provides maximum intelligibility and clean, accurate reproduction for
the most demanding church/house of worship user, lecturer, broadcaster
or theater performer. With its high-SPL capability (135 dB), it is particularly
ideal for high-volume motivational speakers/lecturers, pastors and stage
Available in a wired model as well as in a multitude of
terminations to work with A-T and other manufacturers’ wireless
systems, the BP892 MicroSet has an omnidirectional polar pattern and
features excellent performance specifications, including a flat, extended
frequency response (20-20,000 Hz). The wired version features a switchable
integral 80 Hz high-pass filter that provides easy switching from a
flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The high-pass position
reduces the microphone’s sensitivity to popping; it also reduces
the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise. Output from the power module’s
XLRM-type connector is low impedance (Lo-Z) balanced. The MicroSet includes
a power module (wired version only), two windscreens, two element covers,
a cable clip, a moisture guard and a protective carrying case.
The Audio-Technica BP892 MicroSet omnidirectional condenser
headworn microphone will be available in July 2009 with suggested U.S.
