The BP-2 portable headset station may be worn on the belt or hung on the wall by its sturdy belt-clip. Soft plastic strips on the underside help hold it in place when set on top of a console. The matte black finish minimizes visibility. The BP-2 is a true 2-circuit unit, permitting the user to talk and/or listen to either or both circuits simultaneously. Separate controls are provided for each circuit. The unit mixes the incoming audio from both circuits to one earphone.
The top panel contains controls for switching each microphone circuit on and off, for controlling each listening level, and for signaling on each circuit. They are easily identifiable by touch. A recessed, screwdriver-adjust control is provided for varying the level of the user’s voice to be heard in his own earphone (sidetone). The bottom panel provides two 3-pin female XLRs for connection to two circuits and a male XLR for connection of any standard communications headset with a dynamic microphone.
A y-cable (not included) of one 3-pin male XLR and two 3-pin female XLRs is required to loop-through BP-2 stations. The BP-2 has a 4-pin headset connector.
The ribbed, extruded aluminum case; glass-filled nylon end bezels; internal support system for the PC board; best-quality XLR-type connectors, and; recessed controls, all contribute to the outstanding ability of the BP-2 to withstand rough usage.
The BP-2 is plug-in compatible with Clear-Com® and other popular 200Ω unbalanced headset intercom systems.
