—  The BPHS1-XF4 features a  high-performance integrated microphone and  headphone combination perfect  for a wide range of intercom system  applications —

STOW, OH, July 7, 2011 Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 45 years, offers the new BPHS1-XF4 Communications Headset. Based on Audio-Technica’s popular BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset, the BPHS1-XF4 is designed for use with intercom systems for broadcast, theaters, sports, live events or anywhere a high-quality communications headset is required.

The rugged BPHS1-XF4 offers natural, highly intelligible stereo reproduction, featuring closed-back circumaural (around-the-ear) ear cups designed to provide maximum comfort and ambient noise rejection with minimal ear fatigue. The BPHS1-XF4 also has a professional  boom-mounted moving coil dynamic microphone that can be positioned for use on either side of the mouth.


The  PHS1-XF4’s microphone has a unidirectional polar pattern tailored for  pickup of speech with maximum voice  intelligibility over a wide frequency range. A high-performance neodymium magnet in the microphone  ensures a high output level and  detailed sound reproduction. The  microphone is more sensitive to sound  originating directly in front of  the element, making it useful in  reducing pickup of unwanted, off-axis  sounds. The flexible gooseneck  boom swivels for easy positioning on  either the right or left side.

The  headset’s dual earphones offer an extended  frequency response of  20-20,000 Hz for smooth, natural sound  reproduction. At the heart of  each earpiece, a 40-mm neodymium driver  offers impressive power handling ideal for high maximum sound pressure  levels. Generously  padded circumaural ear cups provide acoustic  isolation and long-wearing  comfort; the adjustable headband is also  crafted and cushioned for  listening comfort.

The  BPHS1-XF4 comes standard with the BPCB4 cable  (terminating in a 4-pin  XLRF-type connector) and three AT8162  windscreens. Additionally, for  broadcast applications, the BPHS1-XF4 can  easily be transformed into a  broadcast headset by changing to the BPCB1  cable with 3-pin  XLR-type/stereo ¼” terminations (available  separately).

The BPHS1-XF4 will be available August 2011 with a MSRP list price of $279.00. For more information, please visit www.audio-technica.com.
