get something like [this] ( and stop using a mic that is not suited to how he wants to use it just because it is the mic rush limbaugh uses.

u/MrScruffington · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I believe it's the Audio Technica BPHS1

I own a pair myself, the mic quality is fantastic. The audio quality is pretty damn good too.

You'll need some sort of DAC though, as it uses an XLR microphone connector and 6.25mm jack for the headphones.

u/Superburke · 3 pointsr/Yogscast

If they're using the same ones as they were last year ( which I think they are, they look the same ) they'll be the BPHS1 Audio Technica headsets.

u/sjmahoney · 3 pointsr/livesound

OK, I'm not sure what you're going on about but I'll take a shot, it seems like you're dealing with something like this -

Soooo, lets assume you're not using the x32 digital snake head and just running everything through the back of the mixer.

And also assuming you're not using an a/v DI box and just running the computer audio out of the 1/8 in computer with an rca/1/8 cable.

You mic outputs (xlr) can go into input 1+2.

If I remember correctly, the rca inputs are on the back of the board and something like 'aux in 5-6'

So now you have 4 inputs (mic 1, mic 2, computer Left, computer right)

Assuming you are just using main left and right outputs and one "mix bus" to go to both headphones (and to keep it simple, have that mix bus for the headphones in mono and not stereo)...then, on the back of the mixer your left and right mains could come out of "Out 1" and "Out 2" and your mix bus out of "Out 3"

So now, you have things wired, but how to patch and send the audio to where you want it?

The next part deals with what you need to know to do what you want to.

On your mixer, to the left of your faders, there are a couple of buttons that light up, each below the other. They say something like "ch 1-16" and the next one says "ch17-32" and the next one says "aux in/usb/fx returns"

there are another set of buttons on the other side of this bank of 16 faders and those say something like "group DCA 1-8" and "bus 1-6" and "bus 9-16" Above this group of buttons you'll see another one that says "sends on faders" when you push this one, it flashes red (I think) or is just red.

Also on the mixer, to the right of the LED screen, there are a few buttons that say things like "meters" and "Utilities" and "routing" and "home", etc.

In the same area are 2 buttons with arrows pointing left/right and another 2 pointing up/down

Lastly, on the far, upper right there's and XLR input for a talkback mic and a 4 pin output for "lamp". In that little section there's a button for "talk A" and "talk B' and one that says "view"

OK, now you are sort of familiar with the board and what you need to know.

So, first off the routing. The mixer doesn't know yet that you want output one and two to be your mains or that you want output 3 to be your headphone mix (I'll call this your 'monitor' mix) so you have to tell it.

Hit the button that says "routing" to the right of the led screen. I don't recall exactly what the menu looks like, but you will need to use the left/right and up/down buttons to find the right page to assign outputs. You will know you are on the right page when you see options to assign "output one" and next to it on the led screen a chart listing "main L/C, Mix 1, mix 2, etc"

You will have to use the little rotary wheels to select your outputs, so output one first, and then the other select the Mix left option, and (I think) by pushing in the little rotary wheel buttons you select this option. Then, output 2, mix R, select. Then output 3, mix 1, select.

Also, if you're not getting any audio inputs, your board might be set up to recieve it's inputs via the digital snake head and not via the xlr inputs on the back of the board. So you will want to check this and make sure your inputs 1-8 are coming via "Local" and not "AES'

So now your board is set up to send audio where you want it, now you need to assign the talkback. You don't need and external mic, the board has a built in mic. Find the 'view' button in the talkback section and select it. You will see options for talkback "A" and "B".

Use the rotary wheels or arrow keys in the LED section to select it where your talkback (a or b, it doesn't matter) is sending signal to mix 1 and NOT to main L/R

Also you will want to select whether the talkback is latch or not. Latch means, when you want to use talkback, you hold down the talkback (a or b) button and talk, and when you let go of the button it stops sending. If it's not on latch, then when you press the button it will send audio until you press the button again.

With me so far?

Ok, now lets get your audio working.

shit. I've gotta go. check the manual for further help if i can;t get back to this

u/BangsNaughtyBits · 3 pointsr/podcasting

You bought a BPHS1 that is meant for PAs. Likely this one:

They sell a version with a standard 3 din XLR plug for the mic and a 1/4" TRS stereo plug for the headphone. This one:

If you can't exchange them, you can buy this $37 cable and swap it in:

Then you just need a 1/4" TRS-F to 3.5mm TRS-M adapter to connect the headphone jack to the headphones. I prefer these to reduce strain but it's personal preference.

Can you exchange the BPHS1?


u/Its_jamesey · 3 pointsr/sips

I believe sips uses one of these: sorry :/ for ps3 turtle beach are good brand or save some money and get a razer set

u/StargatePioneer · 2 pointsr/podcasting

You can get an Audio Technica BPHS-1 Headset for $200 each. Or you can try a bunch of handheld vocal dynamic microphones. They range in price from the Behringer XM8500 for $20 to the Senheiser e935 for $169. What's your budget and how many do you need?

Also, have you tried Auphonic or Levelator?

u/MasterVamp · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

First, sorry for bad english.

I think you misunderstood the noise canceling feature, your headsets cancel noise from getting into your ears, not your microphone.

I live in a very busy avenue in my country, and i have a similar problem. Mic was picking up cars and stuff from the street. Your best chance to avoid this noise is getting the mic closer to your mouth, reduce the volume (or sensitivity from your mic) and speak louder. thats why i prefer headsets instead of regular desktop (or tripode) mics.

if reducing the volume and getting the mic closer doesnt work, you probably need a better mic.

After searching for a long time i find the best price-value "noise cancelling" mic is the audio Technica BPHS1. But it isnt usb (it is xlr) and you need a audio USB interface to use it in your pc. This headset is designed to use in sport breadcast, in very loud enviroments.

Link to the headset:

Created especially for on-air news and sports broadcasting, announcing & interviews, this rugged stereo headset offers natural, highly intelligible and focused vocal reproduction, closed-back circumaural (around-the-ear) ear cups to seal out background noise, and a high-output dynamic microphone mounted on a flexible gooseneck boom. The headset's microphone has a cardioid polar pattern tailored for pickup of speech with maximum voice intelligibility over a wide range of frequencies. It is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in reducing pickup of unwanted sounds. The flexible gooseneck boom swivels for easy positioning on either the right or left side.

Link to the audio interface I use:

After switching to this headset i cant hear almost any unwanted noise. I even apologise for a loud truck of something but people cant hear anything :).

But be carefoul, the speakers arent that good as others gaming headsets, but i think it is the best solution for your problem.

Hope it helps! Sorry again for bad english, im still learning a lot of stuff and my keyboard doesnt helps :c.

u/Flewb · 2 pointsr/smashbros

They are Audio Technica BPHS1s. I actually have the exact same headset, and Scar and Toph were fine with it. Gimr just needs to replace the ear cushions.

u/randomdoohickey · 2 pointsr/Twitch

The Behringer you want is the UMC202HD. Do not buy any of the Behringer audio interfaces w/o a "HD" in the model name as they are the old-world interfaces that were replaced by the HD models.

The dynamic mic headset want is the Audio-Technica BPHS1 with Behringer UMC202HD interface (and possibly with Brainwavz sheepskin earpads). That's all the hardware you need.

Here's a video on why all streamers should be using a cardioid pattern dynamic mic w/ audio interface. It should be mandatory viewing for all new Twitch streamers:

Software-wise, Voicemeeter Bananna is arguably all you need. If you want to do audio filters, the ReaPlugs VST FX Suite with FIR, compressor, and bass cut are all you really need or want (with FIR->compressor in that order for the filter chain). OBS Studio's built-in audio filters suck hard.

If you're saying what I think you're saying. You're trying to capture the games audio along with the party chat audio and have the headset mic send audio to the mix as well. But do you need to be heard in party chat? I've never tried that, I've always used a separate mic, the only pair of headphones I've ever seen that was pretty bizarre for a set up was a pair of Audio-Technica BPHS1 the same pair Seananners uses. Sorry I couldn't help you much but you may want to re-think your set up structure so that it doesn't drive you crazy. Best of luck!

u/bwett1 · 1 pointr/smashbros

I know your max is $300, but hold out longer and go with these. They are sturdy, high quality, and will be well worth the investment. We have 5 of them lol

u/NicholasHills · 1 pointr/sips

I believe his headset is one of these.

Couldn't comment on recording software though.

u/supermonkeyball64 · 1 pointr/livesound

Wow! Thank you so much. Sound/audio is definitely the most difficult thing to understand in my opinion for those starting out and people like you are amazing for spending the time to help. Sorry, I'm just really grateful as this will help immensely!

That all made perfect sense to me & was super helpful. Now that I know that, I do actually have a few more questions.

  1. How can I have the commentators hear each other? I have Audio Technica BPHS1's.

  2. Right now I only have two headsets but I want to updgrade to four. Reason being is I want to be able to have tri-casting & then myself to have my own headset. With my own headset I'd want to be "God" and only send sound to be heard to the commentators headsets but NOT to the house nor the recording going on my computer. How is that possible?
  3. Is there any general YouTube guide/text guide on how to handle and understand everything a mixer has?
u/awh444 · 1 pointr/Broadcasting

Although they're a bit on the pricier end depending on where you shop, the Audio-Technica BPHS1 headsets are awesome. They're practically the golden standard for semi-pro broadcasters at this point. I've had great experience with them both indoors and out.

u/Pyro6000 · 1 pointr/buildapc

If I get this headset, what else will I need to get for it to work properly while PC gaming? Will a ¼" to ⅛" adapter and an XLR to ⅛" adapter be enough, or will I need some sort of preamp or amp to get decent microphone output?

u/haganbmj · 1 pointr/smashbros

Here's what I use. Not nearly the best, but it's manageable for the average Joe or group.


  • Streaming: OBS Studio (Win 0.14.x)
  • Overlay: HTML/Javascript w/ StreamControl writing data to JSON and JS polling it.
  • Capture Device: Startech USB3HDCAP + XRGB-mini Framemeister
  • WebCams: 2x Logitech C920
  • Audio Mixer: Mackie Mix 8
  • Headsets: 2x Audio-Technica BPHS1
  • Misc: Powered Composite Splitter, Behringer HA400 Headphone Amp
  • Stream Tools: Nightbot, TwitchAlerts


  • Capture Device: Dazzle DVC 100

    BPHS1s are kind of the standard for accessible and reasonably priced xlr headsets.

    I was getting decent quality out of my old dazzle before I switched, people just need to learn how to setup their bitrate properly to reduce artifacts and how to deinterlace their capture via amarectv or using the built in obs plugins (I used yadifx4 for the longest time) which do a nice, respectable job. Would I recommend a dazzle? Eh, it produces decent video for the price (got mine on ebay for $20), but has some compatibility issues - if you do a quick search for audio issues with the dazzle you'll find a couple threads. There are workarounds, but it's finicky.

    Ideally though, streams should be capturing component video. It removes the need for software/external hardware deinterlacing. The issue here is that you either need a TV that supports component, or a component->composite converter, which I've seen people have performance issues with in the past.
    My current setup uses a Framemeister to upscale the composite signal and handle the deinterlacing, outputting HDMI to the USB3HDCAP. The advantage is that I get to feed straight composite signals to any plain old CRT, which is great because I've been recording out of a suitcase the last few months while I move around.

    I build my overlays in JavaScript and HTML; there's a layer of logic that polls a local JSON file written by StreamControl for changes and updates them on the page.

    Just taking off on a flight. More info later. (It's later)

u/CaptainOuzo · 1 pointr/youtubers

If I were doing this over, I'd pair the Focusrite Scarlett Solo with the Audio Technica BPHS1 broadcasting headset. And that would actually have gotten me better sound for less money.

Hell, I'm tempted to bite the bullet on that headset. I've seen it recommended many times before.

u/samariantown · -1 pointsr/battlestations

You say that like having a gaming headset and having a pair of headphones that produce good quality sound are mutually exclusive.

If you even did a little research you'd find that all of the respected headphone (audio technica, beyerdynamic, sennheiser) brands also produce headsets for a variety of budgets.

Here are a few examples:
