Sorry this product is currently out of stock.
Please contact a Sales Pro at for alternate options.


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 BP896C is an unterminated version of Audio-Technica's BP896C MicroPoint™ omnidirectional lavalier, which 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. The microphone has a permanently attached, 1.4 m (55") miniature cable, and users can 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.
