AUDIO-TECHNICA INTRODUCES BP896 SUBMINIATURE LAVALIER

— Company unveils a subminiature omnidirectional lavalier condenser microphone engineered to deliver high quality audio with low profile design for on-camera applications —

STOW, OH, April 20, 2009 — Audio-Technica introduces its smallest lavalier offering to date, the BP896 Subminiature Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone. Intended for capture of high-quality audio with unobtrusive profile, the BP896 provides maximum intelligibility and clean, accurate reproduction for broadcasters, lecturers, church/house of worship users, actors and presenters. The BP896 capsule measures a mere 2.5 mm in diameter, making it ideal for applications requiring minimum visibility. The microphone operates on phantom power and includes a complete accessory kit. The BP896 is available in black and beige wired and wireless models. The wireless offerings include a multitude of terminations designed to work with Audio-Technica and other manufacturers’ wireless systems.

The ruggedly designed BP896 handles high SPLs and offers a wide frequency response. The subminiature omni element is enclosed in a durable, low-profile housing with internal construction designed to minimize noise from handling, clothing and wind. The microphone plugs into the included AT8539 power module, which provides a low-frequency roll-off switch and an integral XLR3M connector supplying a low-impedance balanced output. The extensive accessory kit includes a clothing clip base, 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 users’ attire. A protective carrying case is also included.

The BP896 will be available in June 2009 with pricing (U.S. MSRPs) as follows:
