Audio-Technica's largest dynamic diaphragm

The BP40 Dynamic voice microphone provides natural sound reproduction for a variety of applications - radio, recording, post production ... thanks to its hypercardioid providing optimal isolation of the sound source and excellent off-axis rejection. The 37mm capsule with a patented "floating edges" design optimizes the surface of the membrane and maximizes performance, while the humbucking coil (for noise compensation) prevents the risk of electromagnetic interference (EMI) (generated by the video monitors, power supplies, etc). Due to its robust, all metal construction, the BP40 will be ideal in broadcast environments.
