Each year, the NAB Show focuses on bringing together the biggest names in media, entertainment, and technology to showcase content creation tools, and we’re proud to be exhibiting again at this year’s show!
At the 2018 NAB Show, Audio-Technica is featuring a variety of great professional audio gear for broadcasters and other content creators. We’re also debuting the latest addition to the critically acclaimed M-Series line of headphones, as well as our newest broadcast headsets.
Introducing the ATH-M60x Headphones
We’re excited to announce the debut of the newest member of the M-Series line, the ATH-M60x On-Ear Professional Monitor Headphones. A-T’s M-Series line includes the critically acclaimed ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones, and the new ATH-M60x headphones utilize the same proprietary driver as that found in the M50x.
Developed for broadcast, studio, and mobile applications, the ATH-M60x headphones deliver exceptional clarity throughout an extended frequency range with accurate bass response. The low-profile, closed-back, on-ear design provides excellent sound isolation and a great fit, making the ATH-M60x headphones ideal for professional content creators.
The ATH-M60x On-Ear Professional Monitor Headphones will be available in July 2018.
A-T Debuts BPHS2 Professional Broadcast Headsets
Journalists and newscasters will love the newest professional broadcasting headsets A-T is unveiling at the 2018 NAB Show! Were proud to introduce the BPHS2 and BPHS2C Broadcast Stereo Headsets, and the BPHS2S Single-Ear Broadcast Headset. Each model is ideal for professional use and designed for broadcasting news, sports, esports, and much more.
The BPHS2 Broadcast Headsets are based on the new ATH-M60x On-Ear Professional Monitor Headphones and use the same proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers. These rugged headsets offer comfort for extended wearing, as well as broadcast-ready vocal reproduction.
The BPHS2 is available in three configurations: the standard BPHS2 and the BPHS2S single-ear version, both of which come with a hypercardioid dynamic microphone, as well as the BPHS2C, which comes with a cardioid condenser microphone.
Created specifically for news and sports broadcasting, the standard BPHS2 headset features a comfortable fit and excellent sound isolation, as well as a high-output, hypercardioid dynamic microphone mounted on a rigid boom with a strong, flexible gooseneck section. Perfect for reporters in the field, the microphone keeps the pickup focused on the broadcaster’s voice even in loud environments.
The BPHS2S is a single-ear version of the dynamic-mic standard BPHS2, offering added comfort and less isolation. Nearly identical to the BPHS2, the BPHS2C offers a sleek, high-output, cardioid condenser microphone rather than a hypercardioid dynamic mic.
The three new BPHS2 Broadcast Headset models will be available in July 2018.
