Europe - Audio-Technica has introduced the low-profile BP898 Subminiature Cardioid Condenser Lavalier Microphone and BP899 Subminiature Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone.
Direct replacements and upgrades to the existing AT898 and AT899, the new BP898 and BP899 are available in a number of different terminations (for wired or wireless use) that suit them to the entire range of lavalier mic applications.
The BP898 is available in five black-finished models, all with permanently attached cables and varying termination and power configurations. Available in a variety of different variations, each of the BP899 options features permanently attached cables, varying termination and power configurations and black or theatre beige finishes.
Both microphones’ wide dynamic range and tolerance for high sound pressure levels ensures intelligible, natural-sounding audio that’s ideal for use by stage and television talent, lecturers, and worship leaders, and the low-profile design (a mere 5.3 mm in diameter) is ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility, says the company.
If up-close, directional miking is needed, the BP898 with cardioid capsule is recommended. The directionality of the BP898 cardioid element has a pronounced proximity effect when used at close range, enhancing the user’s voice. If the mic needs to be used at a greater distance or a less focused pickup is desired, the BP899 with an omnidirectional capsule is recommended.
The BP899 features an open-diaphragm design for maximum frequency response with protective mesh that repels sweat and other moisture and lasting performance. It includes a resonance cap that can be applied to the mic for greater intelligibility and to direct sweat and moisture away.
