AUDIO TECHNICA HEADWORN MICROPHONES

This selection from the Audio Technica range offers designs with cardioid or omnidirectional pick-up patterns, from headband-mounted dynamic models aimed at musicians to vestigial condenser Micro-earsets suitable for theatrical use.

All models have low-impedance outputs and XLR connectors. Condenser types are either phantom powered only, or offer the facility to use battery power as an alternative.

ATM73a

For use by drummers, keyboard players or anyone requiring hands-free operation, the ATM73a has a 'comfortable, unobtrusive headband design' with a gooseneck to place the cardioid condenser capsule by the side of the mouth. It is permanently attached to a 1.4 metre cable fitted with a miniature XLR connector. This connects to a belt-mounted power module which operates on a 1.5V AA battery (1200 hours, alkaline) or 11-52V phantom power. The power module has a filter switch to introduce low-frequency roll-off, 80Hz, -18dB/octave, and a 3-pin male XLR output connector. Response: 40Hz-15kHz, sensitivity 1.7mV/Pa.

Included accessories: AT8531 power module, AT8128 small, AT8125 large, black foam windscreens.

ATM75

Similar to the ATM73a, this has a pivot-mounted flexible microphone boom that descends from either the left or right side, supporting a cardioid condenser capsule which 'delivers professional-quality vocal pickup with hands-free operation'. It is permanently attached to a 1.4 metre cable fitted with a miniature XLR connector. This connects with a belt-mounted power module which operates on a 1.5V AA battery (1200 hours, alkaline) or 11-52V phantom power. The power module has a filter which may be switched in to introduce low-frequency roll-off, 80Hz, -18dB/octave and a 3-pin male XLR output connector. Response: 100Hz-13kHz, sensitivity 2.8mV/Pa.

Included accessories: AT8531 power module, AT8139S small, AT8139L large, black foam windscreens. Clothing clip.

Alternative versions, terminated for use with Audio Technica radio microphones, are also available. See Audio Technica Radiomics for further details.

BP892

This is a condenser microphone with an omnidirectional polar pattern, designed 'to provide intelligible natural audio for stage and television talent, lecturers and houses of worship'. The microphone has a diameter of only 2.6 mm and offers an ergonomic, under-ear design; its flexible, lightweight, contoured loop hooks behind the ear for a secure, comfortable fit, with or without glasses. A 1.4 m miniature cable is permanently attached, the free end connects to the AT8539 power module via a locking 4-pin connector. The connector is also compatible with all Audio Technica UniPak body-pack transmitters. A recessed switch in the power module offers the choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off, 80Hz, -18dB/octave, to help control undesired ambient noise; the output of the power module is a 3-pin XLR connector. Response: 20Hz-20kHz, sensitivity 3.5mV/Pa. Requires 11-52V phantom power. Weight: 2.6g, microphone, boom and ear-loop. Available in black or beige.

Included accessories: AT8539 power module, AT8464 dual-ear microphone mount (converts the BP892 to sit on both ears), AT8440 cable clip, two AT8157 foam windscreens; two AT8156 element covers, moisture guard, belt clip, carrying case.

BP-893

With its ergonomically moulded earpiece and unobtrusive one-inch long boom, this 'Micro Earset' offers 'inconspicuous placement along with clear, natural vocal pick up'. Its lightweight, low-profile design is suitable for use in theatrical performances, houses of worship and broadcast studios. The earset is positioned over the ear. Its omnidirectional miniature condenser capsule offers 'audio reproduction similar to that of a high-quality lavalier microphone'. The microphone is also useful for violin pick-up, the BP893 worn over the player's ear. A 1.4 m miniature cable is permanently attached; the free end connects to the power module via a locking 4-pin connector. The connector is also compatible with all Audio Technica UniPak body-pack transmitters. A recessed switch in the power module offers the choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off, 80Hz, -18dB/octave, to help control undesired ambient noise; the output of the power module is a 3-pin XLR connector.

Its low-visibility headband and cushioned support pads provide a stable, comfortable fit. Designed for professional quality vocal pick-up with hands-free operation, it has a pivot-mounted flexible microphone boom that descends from either the left or right side.
