MicroPoint™ Subminiature Omnidirectional Condenser Lavalier Microphone
Share

Details

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 BP896 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 BP896 comes generously equipped with an extensive accessory kit—mic holders, windscreens, element covers & more.
