Audio Technica BP896CTH
The Audio Technica BP896CTH is an unterminated beige subminiature omni condenser lavalier mic. With a capsule diameter not much bigger than the head of a pin, Audio-Technica’s smallest-ever lavalier microphone virtually disappears in props or clothing to create highest-quality audio for broadcast and theater sound reinforcement.
The BP896CTH MicroPoint omnidirectional lavalier delivers extremely intelligible natural audio and handles high sound pressure levels with ease. Its subminiature omni element is enclosed in a durable housing designed to minimize noise from handling, clothing and wind. Flip a switch to eliminate low-frequency hum without affecting intelligibility.
Offered in wired & wireless models, the BP896CTH comes generously equipped with an extensive accessory kit—mic holders, windscreens, element covers & more.
