Overview

Designed for broadcast, the BP40 lends your speaking voice a tight, crisp, full and authoritative tone. It is ideal for DJs, VJs and podcasters, and is also great for spoken word recording. The BP40 broadcast vocal microphone offers a rich, natural, condenser-like sound from a large-diaphragm dynamic design. The large diaphragm features patented floating-edge construction that maximizes diaphragm surface area and optimizes overall diaphragm performance, while the humbucking voice coil prevents electromagnetic interference (EMI).

With rugged construction and stylish, waveform-inspired design, the BP40 delivers clear and articulate reproduction. Optimized capsule placement helps maintain a commanding vocal presence even at a distance, while the multistage windscreen provides superior internal pop filtering. Mic also includes a switchable 100 Hz high-pass filter to provide even more pop protection.

    Comments about Audio-Technica BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

    I use the Audio Technica BP 40 for live internet-radio broadcasting, podcasting, and radio-production recording. I do not have a soundproof studio, and my proximity to a local airport, motorcycle repair shop, and what have you, makes condenser mics ineffective. This mic is well-made, durable, and of professional quality. Nice mic!

      Comments about Audio-Technica BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

      The mic ic clear as a bell. very little, if any, noise picked up from low end hum, air conditioners, cars, planes, refrigerators, etc. I bought a Cloudlifter (CL-1) with my BP40 to take the "stress" off my preamp, but might not be necessary for people who own preamps that provide gain of 75dB or higher. Also, buy GC's Livewire XLR cables because it eliminated the noise I had in my chain. I was surprised what a difference a "good" XLR cable can make.
