Overview

The Audio-Technica BP896 is a subminiature clip-on/lavalier condenser microphone with an omnidirectional polar pattern. It is designed to provide intelligible, natural audio for stage/television talent, lecturers, and houses of worship. The Audio-Technica MicroPoint lavalier mic is intended to be worn on the clothing or hidden in props for excellent, yet unobtrusive sound pickup. The wide-range capability of this Audio-Technica microphone ensures clean, accurate reproduction with high intelligibility for speakers, presenters, and other performers. Its small size makes this lavalier condenser mic ideal for use in applications where minimum visibility is required.

The Audio-Technica MicroPoint BP896 microphone requires 11V to 52V phantom power for operation. It includes a 1.4m (55") permanently attached miniature cable. Its free end connects to the provided AT8539 power module via a locking 4-pin connector. The connector is also compatible with all Audio-Technica UniPak body-pack wireless transmitters. The output of the power module is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. A recessed switch in the power module permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80Hz high-pass UniSteep filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The Audio-Technica MicroPoint BP896 comes equipped with a power module, a clothing clip base, a viper clip base, three single mic holders, two double mic holders, two windscreens and six element covers (two each in black, white and beige) for blending in with your attire. A belt clip and a protective carrying microphone case is also included.

The Audio-Technica MicroPoint lavalier mic comes in beige or black with a choice of the following:

Unterminated: 55" (1.4m) unterminated cable

Lemo/M180 connector: 55" (1.4m) cable terminated for Sennheiser wireless systems using Lemo connector

3.5 mm connector: 55" (1.4m) cable terminated for Sennheiser wireless systems using locking 3.5mm connector

TA4F connector: 55" (1.4m) cable terminated with TA4F connector for Shure wireless systems

TA5F connector: 55" (1.4m) cable terminated with TA5F connector for ATW-U101 and Lectrosonics wireless systems

HRS connector: 55" (1.4m) cable terminated with locking 4-pin connector for A-T UniPak wireless systems

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCCs wireless microphone website at: www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones.
