TIE-CLIP MIC NO BIGGER THAN A PIN-HEAD

With a capsule diameter not much bigger than the head of a pin, Audio-Technica’s smallest-ever lavalier microphone virtually disappears in props or clothing to create highest-quality audio for broadcast and theater sound reinforcement.

The BP896 MicroPoint™ omnidirectional lavalier delivers extremely intelligible natural audio and handles high sound pressure levels with ease. Its subminiature omni element is enclosed in a durable housing designed to minimize noise from handling, clothing and wind. Flip a switch to eliminate low-frequency hum without affecting intelligibility.

Offered in wired & wireless models, the BP896 comes generously equipped with an extensive accessory kit—mic holders, windscreens, element covers & more.

“Very lightweight and ergonomic”

With its light weight of 0.14 g and 2.6 mm diameter capsule, the BP896 miniature lavalier microphone is one of the lightest and most discreet microphones on the professional audio market. It can be stuck to the forehead or on the cheek to guarantee near invisibility, or be hidden in clothing using the clothing clip provided.

“Low-cut filter”

The AT8539 tubular phantom power supply module shipped with the BP896 is equipped with a low-cut filter which provides excellent attenuation of low frequency hum, improving the quality of sound pickup without affecting voice quality or intelligibility.
