Great For News And Sports Broadcasting

Ideal for news and sports broadcasting, Audio-Technica's BPHS2 stereo headset includes 45mm large-aperture drivers that produce wonderful clarity through a wide frequency range along with stellar bass response. A low-profile, closed-back, on-ear design with memory-foam earpads and headband keep you in touch with your surroundings while providing a comfortable fit. Benefit from commanding, broadcast-ready vocal reproduction, by virtue of the BPHS2's hypercardioid dynamic microphone. Beyond that, this boom-mounted mic can swivel forward and back, so you can position it on your left or right side. With solid build quality and a user-replaceable cable and earpads, the Audio-Technica BPHS2 is ready for anything you can throw at it.

Circumaural Vs. Supra-Aural

In layman's terms, these terms simply mean "over ear" (circumaural) and "on ear" (supra-aural). In the case of headphones, this refers to the design of the earcup, which is the cushion that sits between the headphone's speakers (drivers) and your ear. Here at Sweetwater, we rarely use supra-aural headphones like the BPHS2 in the studio; although, they're great in the field — especially if you need to be aware of what's going on around you.

Closed-Back Vs. Open-Back

Also referred to sometimes as simply "closed" and "open," this distinction addresses the design of the part of the headphone that covers the area behind the driver in a straight line away from the side of your head. A closed-back headset like the Audio-Technica BPHS2 prevents sound from escaping and leaking out. The downside of this design is that it traps pressure inside the headphone, which creates false low frequencies. These false low frequencies are fine for most professional uses (and even desirable in consumer products), but less desirable for critical listening and mixing.

Hypercardioid Polar Pattern

The built-in boom microphone on the BPHS2 features a hypercardioid polar pattern. Hypercardioid mics are extremely directional. They're sensitive from the front, less sensitive on the sides, and offer excellent rejection from the rear. Because these mics reject sound from the rear, they do a great job of eliminating feedback and unwanted background noise.
