Headset Dynamic Mics

A microphone is a device that captures audio by converting sound waves into an electrical signal. This signal can be amplified as an analog signal or may be converted to a digital signal, which can be processed by a computer or other digital audio device. This forum is for discussing Dynamic, Condenser, USB, Ribbon and Stereo Mic Sets.

Headset Dynamic Mics

I have decided to invest in a couple of dynamic headset mics to use with my Zoom H6 digital recorder. After reading a dozen or so reviews, I have decided to go with the Audio-Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset with Dynamic Boom Mic. I ordered one last week and it should be in sometime this afternoon. The cost is $199.00 and they are on back order till 1/19/19. Once I check it out and if it does what I want it to do, I will order a few more. These mics will be used for doing interviews and more times then not, it will be in a somewhat noisy environment.

This is the write up for these mics.
The rugged broadcast Audio-Technica BPHS1 stereo headset has closed-back around-the-ear cups and a professional boom-mounted microphone wearable on either side.

Audio-Technica designed the BPHS1 for news and sports broadcasting, announcing, and interviews. The headset microphone's cardioid polar pattern is tailored for speech pickup with maximum voice intelligibility over a wide range of frequencies. It is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in reducing pickup of unwanted ambient sounds. The mic's flexible gooseneck boom swivels for easy positioning on either the right or left.

The AT BPHS1 headset's dual earphones offer an extended frequency response of 20-20,000 Hz and smooth, natural sound reproduction. Generously padded circumaural ear cups provide acoustic isolation and long-wearing comfort.

OK, after playing around with this mic, I have decided to buy 3 more that have the mic only. This will save me over $360.00 and since when I do my interviews we will all be in the same room most of the time, there is really no need for headphones. These will work great for doing interviews into my Zoom H6 without causing to much mic bleed. The audio below is two recordings. I moved this mic less then 1/4 inch and it produced a +5dbs difference on the input level, WITHOUT adjusting the gain input. This audio should pass the ACX specs with room to spare.
