NAB EXPO, LAS VEGAS, NV, April 12, 2010 â€” Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 45 years, is enhancing its BP892 MicroSetÂ® Subminiature Omnidirectional Condenser Headworn Microphone with the AT8464 Dual-Ear Microphone Mount. The high-SPL successor to Audio-Technicaâ€™s popular AT892, the BP892 offers increased dynamic range with maximum audio quality and minimum visibility. The Dual-Ear Mount allows users to convert their single-ear-worn BP892 MicroSet to a dual-ear-worn unit for maximum stability and comfort. This device will now come standard with all BP892 MicroSet units, and is also sold as a stand-alone item to retrofit BP892 and AT892 units already in the hands of end users.
Ideal for broadcast, live sound, theater, ENG, house-of-worship
and fitness applications, among other active uses, the AT8464 provides additional stability and a comfortable fit for the BP892. It easily converts the mic to left or right wearing positions, and the continuously adjustable headband fits both children and adults. It features a durable, lightweight, low-profile design with an included cord clip. Like the BP892 it accompanies, the AT8464 is available in both black and theater beige.
